May 28th Announcements and Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,


I hope you all had a great week. I have particularly enjoyed the weather thus far, although if I am outside long enough, I always feel like a bug flies into my mouth. I don’t know if it’s real or imagined, but I can’t shake the feeling!

Tomorrow, we will continue our series through Jonah. As we see the drama unfold, I pray that we are all looking at Jonah and asking ourselves the reflective questions. Tomorrow we will see how Jonah thinks he knows better than God. The passage will challenge us to ask ourselves whether we think we know better than God just like Jonah. Please come out to be challenged by Scripture and corporately worship God together.

Please also come back Sunday evening if you are able. The teens are running the service tomorrow. I was unable last year to see the teen service, but I heard great things about it. I am sure all who come out will be encouraged and blessed by it. 

Looking forward to worshipping with you all tomorrow.

In Christ,

Pastor John
