June 27th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
This week I have looked back through pictures of the last 40 years. One of the main thoughts that I have been struck with is how gracious God has been to bring various people to our church through the years. Some are still here, others have gone to heaven, others are doing a great work in other churches around the country and even the world. Memories flooded back of how great an impact various people have made to this work and how impoverished we would have been without them. A church’s history is the sum of all the inputs that people have made through the years.
If you are an alumni of TBC, thank you for the impact you have made. If you are a current member or attender of TBC thank you for the blessing you have been to our church. We sometimes remember events or building projects as evidence that God has been at work. But really the greatest evidence of God working is that you walked through the door of TBC and left your mark on me as the Pastor, on the lives of others and on our church as a whole.
I would love to sit with each one of you and think about the impact you have made and will make and let you know how thankful I am that God brought you our direction. My message will only hit some of the highlights of God’s hand on this work over the 40 years. My greatest agony in preaching a message like this is that I have to leave so much out. It took 40 years to get here and I am told that I have less than 40 minutes to preach because of many other things happening. Thank you again for being part of this work that God is doing.
