Celebrating God’s Work
Now that fall activities are fully underway, we have been able to see and celebrate God’s work in light of recent Wednesday and Sunday ministry adjustments. Our hope was that though there would be some loss, we would actually offer increased opportunity for the body to participate in the mission and discipleship strategy of the church. How is it going?
We are blessed. Attendance at Wednesday night dinners has been great, and all ages are engaging around the table, sometimes aided by question cards that children and adults alike can answer with ease. Our first “event” dinner was a full and festive house, with an African meal, guests Celestin and Bernadette Musekura from ALARM, Inc., and a focus on the team of six TFC women leaving Nov. 4 to train women leaders in Rwanda.
And there’s more. Read the comments of some of our ministry leaders to hear how the changes have resulted in new growth and life:
Sunday mornings are thriving in Children’s Ministry. Discipleship is at work as leaders use drama, puppets, treasure hunts, creative games, and songs to present God’s Word to children. But we still have a need for preschool teachers during the Connection Hour. Consider being a part of telling the coming generation the glorious deeds of the Lord (Psalm 78:1-4)! Please contact me if you’d like to join us. Six-week sessions are an option.

Our Sunday night SURGE (youth co-ed discipleship through student leadership) is off to a fantastic start in its new Sunday night time slot. The atmosphere is electric with excitement as attendance has doubled, and dividing into smaller discussion groups is now possible with the student leadership team that formed in the summer. Meeting in host homes has also allowed the students to interact with and be invested in by various members and generations of the church body.
