September 18th Announcements and Connection Links

Dear TBC Family & Friends,


Tomorrow morning will mark a significant moment in the life and history of Truth Baptist Church.  We are going to officially install John Vo as our next lead pastor.  We are going to have several men pray for him and our church, I will preach a shorter message then the deacons will lay hands on him, and I will pray for him.  I believe this will be an encouraging service.  I believe that God has answered our prayers and brought the right person to us to be our next lead pastor.

Last week on Sunday evening we began the transition to “in person” meetings.  We are planning to have a children’s program for Sunday evening beginning in October after the Special Meetings with the Frazor Team who will have great children’s meetings each night from Sunday through Wednesday evening of next week.  Tomorrow evening the kids from about 10 down to nursery will have a gym time with Melanie and a helper.

I want to encourage every one pray about getting back into the habit of coming Sunday evenings.  We can deal with subjects that are somewhat deeper and more personal since it’s more of a family time than the morning service.  Tomorrow evening I would like to look at the revival with King Josiah.  There are some surprising applications that we can glean from that passage.  Afterward is a great time for fellowship as the meeting goes from 6 to 7.

We are looking forward to a great Harvest Banquet next Saturday evening.  Please work to invite friends.  It is good to take care of the tickets for them so they can come as guests – especially for first time or unsaved guests.  The Frazors have a music team that will have a concert and then a to-the-point gospel message that will speak to everyone’s heart.  I always look forward to a straight gospel message by a full time evangelist.  That will be one of the best gospel presentations you will hear all year.  Don’t miss it.  Please invite and get the tickets soon.  As always if you can’t afford the ticket, let us know.  We don’t want anyone not to be able to come because of money.
