I'm still celebrating...

Hey Friends and Family of TCC,

Wow! I was so thrilled with God’s movement and our involvement in last Sunday’s services. On Sunday morning we walked through the meaning and experience of Communion. Then on Sunday evening we sang to our great God and heard three stories of how God used our church to do an amazing work of healing, redemption and transformation. As I walked to my car, I was emotionally moved by God’s love. If you missed either or both services, please log on now and watch or listen.

I was bummed at myself after Sunday evening’s service that, as we were celebrating victories in our church, I forgot to mention our inspired emphasis on prayer. God continues to move as a direct result of His people earnestly going before Him in humble prayer. Our prayer renewal resulted in the beautiful Prayer Garden, a prayer service and the opportunity for people to pray each Sunday at 8:00am here at the church.

One of the stories of life-change we heard on Sunday spoke of how a retreat was a catalyst in that person’s spiritual and relational connection. Retreats are a great time to get away from the normal routines of life and experience God’s grace and presence in a fresh way. Our Spring Getaway for women is coming soon. Ladies, I can’t recommend this more highly. Join other women from TCC and be inspired together. Make sure to sign up at church on Sunday or online.

This Sunday morning we’re going to focus our attention on our personal spiritual growth and transformation. God has promised us that He’ll meet us as we practice certain spiritual disciplines. Those disciplines then lead to steps of trust and growth. We’ll take a look at a spiritual growth plan that will help you discern where you are in your transformation to become like Jesus.

Engaging with you,

Saturday Prayer Focus: First Baptist Church, Grass Valley. Please pray for Mark Rindels, Mark Nunn and the rest of the folks over at First Baptist that they will represent Jesus and His love with passion. Pray for empowered ministry and wisdom as they seek to reach out to our community. Let’s pray for unity, inspiration and perseverance.
