May 17th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends, This morning we are going to dive into 2 Timothy. This is a much different book than 1Timothy in that it is Paul's last letter before he was killed. Paul was living in a Roman dungeon because of unjust opposition to the message of the Gospel. As we observe Paul, we can learn how to live in times like ours that are uncertain and uncomfortable.
May 9th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends, Tomorrow is Mother's Day. It is a good time to look at what the Bible teaches about the significance and impact that mothers can have on their families. Someone stated that the "hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." It is true that mothers can have a significant impact on the future not only of their children but also of the world their children touch.
April 25th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends, There are some mountain top passages of scripture in the Bible.
May 2nd Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends, There are different types of people in every local church. Some struggle to make ends meet and need to pray daily for their "daily bread." However, we find in the last verses of 1 Timothy that there are some who have more means. Both the rich and poor need to beware of covetousness as that is a sin that can afflict every person.
April 18th Update
A focused, dynamic believer is a powerful force for the cause of Christ. Satan tries his best to get us off the main track of God's will and become parked on some side track and become useless for the cause of Christ.
Happy Easter! We invite you to tune in on Sunday for our Easter livestream at 10:30am!
April 11th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends, My wife and I viewed the testimony of an American pastor who faced opposition and prejudice from his neighbors because he was born a German and was living in America with his family during WWI. He understood the issue even though his own son was drafted to fight in the American Army against Germany. He encouraged himself and his family with the thought that if Jesus endured the hatred and the suffering of the cross for us, we ought to continue to love even those who misunderstand and misrepresent us. His love won over many of those who opposed him.
Good Friday Musical Meditations
Dear TBC Family & Friends, It is Friday, but Sunday is coming!
April 4th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends, "Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" Matthew 6:26 Happy April! It is exciting to be in a new month. This past month has been difficult, but with the arrival of Spring and April, we are reminded that God is faithful and still good.
March 28th Update
Dear TBC Family & Friends, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 These are interesting times. As a pastor my desire is to keep everything going in a normal routine. I work best when I can keep my normal routine and schedule. I have observed when people get out of their regular schedule, skip church, skip Bible reading and prayer personally and with their family, their life can get out of sync and life can become a slide down – until the pain becomes so great that they realize they must get back to God and their normal routines and spiritual disciplines again.
