Free family photos this Sunday!

Hey Friends and Family of TCC,

Sunday is Mother’s Day. I look forward to celebrating the women of Twin Cities who are moms. It’s a great day to pour on the heavy syrup and help those who fill this vital role in our society, know that they are valued. We want to honor moms. I am so grateful for my mom and her dogged determination to pray for me over the years. I believe I am who I am because of her faithfulness.

As we honor moms, I am sensitive toward those in our church who have never been a mom. It may be because of choice, life circumstance or infertility, and we know that you can sometimes feel left out. We want you to know that we are aware and care for the pain you may feel on Mother’s Day and have been praying for you.

We’re so appreciative of the single moms in our church. You carry a huge responsibility to be both bread-winner and parent of your children. We hope that this Mother’s Day you feel the support of your church. Our Single Moms ministry is actively looking for ways to meet your unique needs. Please let this team serve your needs.

There are several moms in our church who feel tremendous pain on Mother’s Day because they have lost a child and experience pangs of grief. Please know that you are in our prayers. The rest of us really have no idea what you feel, but we want to express our empathy and compassion.

Finally, there are those whose mother has died, or those whose mother hurt them in some way that should have never happened, or those whose children are causing them pain right now. We’re praying that you sense our caring concern and know that you are not alone.

We’ve planned a fun way to celebrate on Sunday by offering each family a free 5x7 photo. We’ll have three photo booths set up on our campus, and you can stop by before or after each service and get a quick picture taken of your family. Make sure to come dressed for a family picture and enjoy this as a way to celebrate the day. We’ll also give everyone a Mom’s Day card to take home or give to a special mom in your world.

Celebrating moms this weekend,

Saturday Prayer Focus: Pastors Cary and Grace Wallis, Solid Rock Christian Fellowship. Let’s pray for their impact in Penn Valley with the love of Jesus. Make sure to go through all five prayers from our Engage prayer card asking God’s richest blessings to be known.
