Easter Events– How You Can Help!

Posted by Randy Youngblood, Lead Pastor on

People are the heartbeat of our church! Whenever there is an opportunity to serve, give to, or bless people, you really step up!

Many churches joke about people who are expecting to go to church only on Easter. At TMCC, we are pleading with God to “PLEASE SEND THEM TO US!"

We have a few Easter-related events that we want to make sure you are aware of.

March 29 Prayer Gathering

Our “second quarter” prayer event has been moved up a little to March 29, so that we can call on God to empower our pre-Easter outreach efforts on April 2!  These gatherings focus on an urgent theme and feature simple “conversational style” prayer in shorter segments punctuated by a song.  Childcare is provided.

April 2 Local Outreach Event

Easter is a GREAT time to invite people to church! We hope that you can join us for our Easter Local Outreach event. It will be held right after our 10:30 gathering on Sunday, April 2.

Immediately following our Worship Gathering, we’ll have sub sandwiches, eat quick, pray hard, and then disburse in groups to neighborhoods around us. We will pray over the people in that neighborhood, and hang a small Easter service invitation gift bag on each home’s door.

Please don’t ring doorbells and don’t engage people in religious conversations! JUST cover neighborhoods in prayer, bless them with a small gift, and provide an opportunity to learn more about a resurrected Jesus and a church that gives!

Bring your whole family and invite a friend too! Maybe you’ll meet new friends while doing a very important task of inviting people WHO ARE THINKING OF GOING TO CHURCH SOMEWHERE!

People will come to know, love, and serve Jesus because of YOUR participation!

Use Easter Invitation Cards

We’ve made invitation cards that will be available at Connection Point. Take a stack; give one to the person you invite, leave one with your GENEROUS tip when you go out to eat this week, and tuck one in your library book when you return it! 

Good Friday Gathering

Come Friday, April 14 from 6:00-7:00pm for a worship gathering focusing on the sacrifice of Jesus. It has become a special event in our Easter weekend schedule. Pray about inviting a friend who normally doesn’t come to church with you, so that you will be available to answer questions they may have. This will be a family gathering, so the nursery and Children's Ministry will not be available.

Easter Schedule

Easter weekend will feature our four regularly scheduled gatherings:  Saturday 4:30 & 6pm
Sunday 9:00, & 10:30am

PLUS (for that Sunday only) ONE at 7:30 a.m! Only the nursery will be available at the 7:30am gathering. At all 4 of the other gatherings, all rooms in the Children's Ministry will be open.
