This Week @ Twin Cities Church - Monthly Food Drive!

Hey everybody. October is REACH month. We have three great opportunities that will help us get outside of ourselves and provide an opportunity for others to take positive steps toward a life-changing relationship with Jesus.

Operation Christmas Child is back. This has been one of our most heartfelt giving experiences as we bring one or more shoeboxes filled with gifts to send around the world to kids who would never receive a gift at Christmastime. The awesome thing about this is that they know it came from a person who loves Jesus, and they get to see that Jesus loves them through us. Make sure to be here Sunday to get your boxes and instructions.

October 30th is our Fall Friend Day. Our church was built on the courage of ordinary people inviting their unchurched friends. When we were smaller, we would tease each other, “Show us that you have friends. Bring them.” On Friend Day, we will roll out our red carpet so that your friends have the best experience we can offer and connect with God’s love for them. We all know people who don’t go to church. Surveys show that they will come “if someone would just ask.” Be bold and ask.

Fall Family Festival is our biggest community outreach of the year. Last year 3500 people came onto our campus for a safe, free, and fun Halloween alternative. In order for us to provide the kind of excellent experience that will attract people and create goodwill, we need everyone to help. Currently we still need more volunteers before, after, and during the event, more game booths, and more candy. We give away about one ton of candy, and right now we’re light on candy. You can bring it any day to our office or on Sunday.

I am praying now that God will use us to expand His kingdom and His influence this Fall. Will you pray with me?

Sunday, we continue our series on the Seven Deadly Sins by looking at Gluttony. I’m eating my share of donuts before Sunday. See you then.

Pastor Ron
