March 20th Announcements and Connection Links
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
Join us tomorrow as Keith invites us to take a look at the book of Judges. We can learn a lot from the mistakes that the nation of Israel made. We will be reminded of our need to see God as our true deliverer and that we must worship Him and Him alone.
For Sunday evening, I have asked Matt Rowley to share some great thinking about how God enables believers to live and thrive in a declining society. There are many examples in the Bible when the large body of Israel was in a state of decline, sin and rebellion against God and would experience God’s judgment in time. By focusing on the remnant of true believers living in Israel during that time it is possible to see how God not only spared them through the decline and demise of the society around them, but actually caused them to succeed and prosper seemingly against all odds. I have found this discussion to change my entire outlook on the future from one of disappointment and even despair to one of encouragement and hope. Please join in this evening for a study that will help us to live joyfully and expectantly as the world is seemingly disintegrating spiritually and morally around us.
For those who are envious of us being in FL, rejoice because it was actually a degree warmer in CT on Saturday than here! Hope to see all of you either in person on line next week.
