This Week @ Twin Cities Church - Fall Family Festival TODAY!

Hey Friends and Family of TCC! Things are so fun around here as our church campus is being transformed into a Fall Festival for the families of our community. I want to extend that last minute invitation and ask you join us this evening 5:00 – 8:00. It’s going to be a blast!

Be Wise: Stop Doing Dumb Things began last Sunday on Friend Day. I was pretty pumped by how many people invited friends and family to experience our amazing church. On Sunday, I ended my talk with this thought. Instead of having to say, “Next time I’ll do the wise thing” we can make it our goal to say, “I’m going to do the wise thing now.” If we were able to engage and do the right thing in the moment, we would be able to avert much of the negative consequences and regrets we experience when we stay stuck in old patterns of thinking. If you missed the service, you can catch up by watching the service online.

This Sunday we will talk about the power of our words. We’ve all been hurt by some ill-timed and negative words or we’ve been helped by some perfectly-timed and encouraging words. Even as you read this, some of you can still hear those words that either tore you down or built you up. I hope you will make it your plan to be with us on Sunday. I think it’s on purpose that words are the topic of a majority of issues dealt with in Proverbs.

We received word of a fire at the children’s home we sponsor in Uganda. By God’s mercies, no one was hurt, but they had major fire damage to the dorms, mattresses, bedding, and most of the boy’s clothing. The estimate to rebuild and replace is $15,000. They don’t have funds for damage such as this. Our Global Reach Team has requested that we offer our church an opportunity to give a special offering to El Shaddai World Ministries this Sunday. We will be receiving the offering after our normal offerings in the same way we do our quarterly benevolence offerings. If you want to give online, you can do that now to the El Shaddai World Ministries line item. I want to thank you for your generosity over the years to our partners in Uganda, and ask you to pray about how generous you can be now.

See you Sunday as we learn to be wise with our words,
