November 20 Announcements & Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

I hope that everyone had a wonderful week. As our family gets more acclimated to Connecticut, we are continually amazed at how beautiful Connecticut is. Kristen commented earlier, “I love how the leaves just fall as we drive. I just want to stop and enjoy the sight!”

Tomorrow we will be in Philippians 2:12-18. Continuing in the context of gospel unity, Paul gives several more exhortations for us to heed and apply in our lives. Please come worship with us and hear from God’s word to see how we can continually grow in gospel unity with one another.

Please also remember that tomorrow, Sunday Evening service will be replaced with the Members/Committed attendees meeting. The goal of this meeting is for me, along with the leaders of TBC, to communicate our thoughts and provide clarity on several things about the church. This meeting is not meant to be comprehensive, but a starting point as I, along with the leaders, do our best to communicate with the church. For those of you who are not able to make it, there will be a zoom link that Melanie will provide.

I hope to be able to see all of you tomorrow for both Sunday morningworship and the meeting on Sunday evening.

In Christ,

Pastor John
