As we have worked hard to enhance your Christmas celebration, we (the TMC staff) also have experienced encounters with God that will endure throughout the year!
THIS WEEKEND’S CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE!
Our regular weekend gatherings and our Christmas Eve gatherings will be separate events. The Missing Christmas series will conclude this Sunday, with Christmas Eve being separate and distinct.
CONCLUSION OF “MISSING CHRISTMAS” SERIES
Saturday, December 22: we will not have gatherings. (We added an
Sunday, December 23: at 9:00am, 10:30am, and 12:00pm.
Monday, December 24 at 4:30pm, 6:00pm and 7:30pm.
There will an hour in the auditorium with Christmas music, communion, and a short message before people are dismissed to be able to linger and to enjoy learning experiences that are being planned for different classrooms. This is something we want children to be able to enjoy with parents. The nursery will be open for children up through age 3.
To avoid confusion between the Christmas Eve and the weekend gatherings, we are not offering a Christmas Eve Experience on the evening of the 23rd (which would be Sunday evening). We hope that everyone will come back on Monday to experience Christmas Eve with us!
This year’s Christmas offering will go to help with the expansion of the facilities of Lori’s Place. They do great work in aiding victims of sexual crimes that local law enforcement has come to depend upon. Our 2016 Christmas offering helped greatly when they were just starting out, and now they need to expand! This offering will be open through Dec. 30th. When giving to this offering, please use the hashtag #ChristmasOffering. You can give on our website, through the app, or by using an envelope on the weekend.
This project is also the “outreach component” of our Relentless Love initiative, so 10% of what we have given to expanding our facilities will be used to expand the facilities of Lori's Place! We have tithed on our last two capital building initiatives, which God has not only used for great impact outside our walls but He blessed us with Building Faith. We trust He will do the same for Relentless Love as he promised individuals in Malachi 3:10-12.
