October 23 Announcements and Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

I hope everyone has enjoyed the beautiful week we just had. Every passing day both Kristen and I are blessed to be able to see the beauty of New England. While I am freezing, I am looking forward to experiencing snow.

Tomorrow we will continue our study in Philippians where we will examine Paul’s mentality on life. I pray that as we see his outlook and perspective on life, it will challenge us to orient our minds and hearts towards the things of God.

We will also have the wonderful privilege tomorrow of having Steve Cerna, one of the missionaries that we support, visit with us. There will be a combined ABF time with Steve, and he will also be sharing for Sunday Evening. If possible, please come and hear updates from Steve as well as being encouraged from the Word by him.

Looking forward to worshipping with you all tomorrow.

In Christ,

Pastor John
