June 20th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends,
As you have surely experienced, a father can impact our life deeply both positively and negatively. We are so thankful for all the fathers in our church. Tomorrow morning we will be looking at Noah’s role as a father. The Bible says that by faith, Noah saved his family. Although tomorrow I hope to encourage the men in our church to be the best father they can be by leaving a legacy of faith for their children, everyone can benefit every time the Bible is opened together.
I hope you can invite a friend to join us online or in person at 10:30am!
1. TBC 40th ANNIVERSARY NEXT WEEK (SCHEDULE CHANGES): Next week, on Sunday June 28th at 10:00am, we will show both in-person and on livestream a 30 minute video presentation for our church’s 40th anniversary. Following the video, we will have a special service remembering what God has done for our church and looking forward to what He will continue to do. We will NOT have an evening service Zoom, but we will have 2 different Zoom meet-ups for friends old and new to reconnect and share memories of their time at TBC. More information will be available next week. Life groups will not be meeting, but Junior Church will meet at 9:00am on Zoom for a shortened session.
2. Justin & Allison Smith, our missionaries to Asia, will be speaking to us about their ministry during the Sunday Evening Zoom tonight.
