May 7th Announcements and Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

I believe I can officially say, winter is over for me. There were multiple times I took off my jacket this week! What a great feeling it is to be warm! I hope that you are all enjoying the weather as I am.

Tomorrow we will finish up the discipleship series that was supposed to finish several weeks ago. The last topic was the topic of evangelism. In many ways, tomorrow is a simple message on why we should all be evangelizing. I hope that it will both be a challenge and an encouragement for all of us to live out our calling to evangelize to the lost.

If you are able, I would also love for you to come back Sunday evening where we will tackle the question of the origin of our Bibles. We will take somewhat of a deep dive into our understanding of what it means for the Bible to be an inspired text, how we understand the ancient evidence, and how ultimately we can trust the Bibles that we hold in our hands. It will be a fun study! It will also be open for anyone to ask questions so come with your thinking caps on, and we’ll have some great discussions!

Looking forward to worshipping with you all tomorrow, Lord willing.

In Christ,

Pastor John
