November 13 Announcements & Connection Links

Hello TBC Family and Friends,

I hope that all of you had a great week! I certainly enjoyed the “warmer” weather that we had, although I still never left the apartment without two layers! 

Tomorrow we will continue our study in Philippians and we will be examining 2:5-11. It is perhaps one of the richest theological passages we have about Christ and His mission on earth. But the passage all connects to Philippians 2:1-4! Come join us tomorrow to see how the gospel itself motivates gospel unity! 

If you are able please continue to join us for Sunday Evening as Pastor Rowley shares with us his wisdom on evangelism. I have enjoyed and learned much from Pastor Rowley and I am sure we will all benefit from his years of active evangelism.

Please remember to mark November 21st on your calendars. If you call Truth Baptist Church your home church, I along with the rest of the leadership, invite you to join our members/committed attendee meeting that will take the place of the Sunday Evening service. My desire for the meeting will be to communicate and clarify several things for the whole church. I won’t be able to cover every topic that all of you may have questions and concerns with, but it’s going to be a start and the hope and prayer are that as time goes on, the communication will continue.

Hope everyone has had a great Saturday, and I hope to see all of you on Sunday, worshipping our great Lord and Savior.

In Christ,

Pastor John
