November 28th Announcements & Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I asked the kids what they were thankful for and all of them in their own way said “church.” Kristen and I are thankful for the warm reception from TBC when we came almost three months ago. We thank our great God for all that He is doing in TBC and what He will continue to do in and through TBC.

We will be continuing our study through Philippians tomorrow as we read about two great examples of godly humble servants, Timothy and Epaphroditus. My prayer for tomorrow as we learn a little bit about these two men is that we would all be able to model our lives after their godly character.

If you are able, please come back Sunday Evening as Pastor Rowley continues sharing his wisdom on the practical aspects of evangelism. It has been a wonderful joy learning from a man who has dedicated his life to winning souls for Christ!

Tomorrow morning, we will also have ballots for the three deacon nominees: John Dannecker, Michael Garcia, and David Pepe. The nominees that receives the top two votes will be the two deacons that will be rotating on in December. If you are a member, please make sure to vote, or if you are away this weekend, please send in your vote via email.

Hope to see you all tomorrow as we worship our Lord and Savior together!
 

Pastor John
