Good morning family and friends of TBC,
This weekly communication is being sent out to keep your informed and to help us look forward to being together this Sunday. You do look forward to being in church on Sundays , right? I hope so; as I have said before… I love Sundays, they are the highlight of my week!
As we look ahead to this Sunday… In light of this Sunday being celebrated as Reformation Sunday (500 years since Oct. 31, 1517), I will preach a message called “5 Solas, 500 Years.” If you are not familiar with the term “sola,” that is ok; I will set forth the 5 core beliefs that the reformers sought to recover in days of religious and moral darkness. These 5 beliefs are no less important today than 500 years ago. We must hold fast to the Bible and set forth the message of true salvation in Christ by grace through faith alone. Our service will also include appropriate, powerful hymns to focus us on Christ and the Word of God and the choir will minister in music.
This Sunday is our fellowship lunch followed by a 1:15? afternoon service. Please remember to bring what you signed up to bring. All are welcome for this time of fellowship. For the afternoon service, we will singing hymn favorites, have a season of testimonies, and then hear a reformation monologue on Martin Luther.
– MEN – join us tomorrow at 8 for our next men’s breakfast. We will have cook-to-order omelets for all, hear a testimony, pray together, and have a short challenge from the Bible. Invite a friend; please let pastor know if you are coming and did not sign up.
– Those singing this Sunday in choir please be at church by 9:30 for a short time of rehearsal.
– Hazel Lacy provided an update last night (via phone call) on her son Adam… Adam was readmitted to ICU today for a week of additional aggressive blood treatments to try and eliminate the antibodies that are attacked his heart. This is not the news they were hoping for after his Wednesday heart biopsy; but this is the path God has for them now. Pray for God’s abundant grace to be seen and felt and for God’s powerful healing hand to help Adam rebound from this.
God bless each of you. I hope to see you out Sunday.
