This Week @ Twin Cities Church - Amazed By Your Compassion!

Hey Friends and Family of TCC! Imagine the joy EIGHTY SIX families experienced this week as the Christmas baskets you so meticulously packed with such a huge assortment of food and goodies were delivered! I was so proud of our church – a healthy pride – because of your continued generosity. You continue to amaze me with your huge hearts to extend compassion to those who are hurting and discouraged. Thank you so much!

Another ministry that moves my heart is our Safe Families. I was privileged to be part of a social media conversation this week as the ministry leaders and team participants wrestled with the hard questions of how to help people who are desperate and dangerously close to the edge. Here’s a quote from the conversation about the struggles and joys of entering into difficult moments with hurting people:

“Here we are in the middle of this ‘Beautiful Mess,’ giving baths, changing stinky diapers, loving kids. Kim’s talk on Sunday caught us right where we needed to be touched. We are not called to do good things for praise or for status, we are called to do good things and live like Jesus. Safe Families, what a perfect ministry, one that Jesus would say ‘well done My faithful servants.’”

Folks, at TCC we say we’ve won when people love God, love people and serve others. When we do that, God is lifted up, people feel included and needs are met. Isn’t it great to be part of God’s eternal purposes!

One way we can be part of what God wants to do through our church is to participate in our annual Year-End Giving. The Year-End Gift is a way to say thanks to God for His generosity over the last 12 months. This year, we believe the greatest way we can position our church to better serve our community in the future is through our Courtyard Project. Therefore, the majority of the Year-End Gift will be allocated to this project as we begin construction in March. So please ask God and then give as He leads.

Thanking God for His generous and compassionate people,
