October 31 Announcements and Connection Links

Dear TBC Family and Friends,

I hope everyone had a great week! The rain this past week is some of the most I’ve experienced in a long time! Still not able to grasp how cold it’s going to get here in Connecticut.

Tomorrow we begin to examine Paul’s exhortation of gospel unity to the Philippian church. The message will be both practical and challenging as we all seek to have gospel unity.

For Sunday Evening we will be resuming our evangelism series with Pastor Keith bringing us the Word of God. He will help us grow and exhort us in the specific aspect of proclaiming the gospel to our co-workers.

Looking forward to worshipping with you all. Don’t be surprised if you see me all bundled up because it’s cold!

In Christ,

Pastor John
