Need to Know
Here are the three top things to know this week:
Sunday Sermon for July 14, 2019
God speaks to us each week, sometimes in ways we don't expect! Listen to last Sunday's Sermon.

Conversations with God
In our summer sermon series we will be asking some big questions. Why does God not answer our prayers sometimes? If and when He does, why does it take so long? If you’re ready for honesty and real talk with God, come and join us this summer.

Summer Worship Schedule
LTA and Student Ministry Programming July 14 through August 25

  • Students entering Grade 6 - Grade 12 begin in the Sanctuary.

New Parking Configuration at TCC - Visitor and Young Families..
The “Visitors’ Parking” spot signs and “Families with Small Children” parking spot signs have been moved! 

"Families with Small Children" parking spots are now located on the south side of the building, in the smaller lot. With this change, families won’t have to cross the parking lot or driveway with running or squirming toddlers and young children.

We hope the visitor parking is now more visible in its new location on the north side of the building. This is closer to the “main entrance” where TCC greeters can meet and direct our visitors.

Food and Drink in the Sanctuary This Summer

During the summer, food and drink will be allowed in the sanctuary. Feel free to bring your favorite snack or coffee with you! We only ask that everyone use caution so as not to spill (we’ve provided covers for the coffee cups!) and please pick up after yourself and your children at the end of the service.

Please consider signing up to prep coffee for a future Sunday at the Connection Hub!
