July 24th Announcements and Connection Links
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
Sunday morning Elvis Chidozie will be challenging us with the question, “Who is My Neighbor” looking at the Good Samaritan in Luke 10. We live in a broken and divided world. As believers, God desires that we love others.
Please join Sunday evening Zoom to discuss the practical applications of loving your neighbor as Elvis leads us in a practical discussion of loving our neighbor.
We are postponing the next baptism until August 8th. If you have been saved and not baptized, please contact Pastor Eli.
We are looking forward to having John and Kristen Vo with us for the next two weeks. For those two weeks we will also be having in person Sunday evening services.
1. BAPTISM: We are postponing our next baptism until August 8th after the morning service. If you would like to be baptized, please let Pastor Rowley or Pastor Rodriguez know by August 1st.
2. PASTORAL CANDIDATE VISIT: John and Kristen Vo and their family will be visiting our church and community August 1st-9th. If you want a summary of the feedback from John Vo and his references that the deacons have compiled or links to his resume or sermons, please reply to this email. If you have any questions or feedback about his visit or about him or his family, please reply to this email or talk with one of the deacons or pastors. Here is the schedule for this visit:
Sunday, August 1st - John & Kristen and their family will plan to attend church with us as guests so they can get a better feel for our church. We will be having a fellowship after the in-person evening service in order to have time for everyone to meet the Vo’s. For the fellowship, families A-M should bring a couple dozen sandwiches, and families N-Z should bring a large salad to share. The church will provide beverages and ice cream for dessert.
August 2nd - 7th - John and/or Kristen are willing to meet with people during the week they are here. Please reply to this email or text Melanie if you would like to schedule a time to meet with them. They will also be taking some vacation time in the surrounding area during this week.
Sunday, August 8th - John will preach for us during the morning service and will also be with us for the evening service (in person and Zoom) for a time of Q&A.
3. SOCCER: You can register your 7-12 year olds for soccer here. Soccer starts August 28th. Please see Keith if you would like to help with the league in any way this year!
4. As a general reminder, please don’t come to church in person if you or anyone in your household have any flu-like symptoms or Covid-19 symptoms. Please continue to pray for God to protect our church from this virus.
