“My Journey With Leprosy”/No TD Fri.

IMG_5820-001

Hey TD!

What a special time  it was this Spring for TD to host a very special couple with a very challenging set of circumstances … living with leprosy.  Dan and Babbs Izzett taught us a lot about faith, loyalty, commitment, and a great God during their time with us.  Their sharing is a good reminder for us and worth listening to again.  So, here’s your chance to do so:

My Journey With Leprosy (mp3) – Dan Izzett

As a reminder, there is no TD this Friday.

Hey TD!

There are still 2 days for you to do a quick survey for me and get In-n-Out for you and a friend! Don’t like In-n-Out? Ok, how about just doing it from the goodness of your heart in kindness towards me? 🙂

If you’re not ups to speed, here’s what’s going on:

I am taking a course that is exploring the origins, historicity, reliability, impact, etc. of the Bible.  I have an assignment due soon and I need your help. So, I’ve thought of a way that will accomplish a few things at once (what I call cross-pollinating).  Here’s what I am asking of you:

  • Please answer the 7 question survey below.
  • Please ask a friend outside of church to answer the same survey.
  • For those who complete the assignment by 9/24/16, I will give a $15 gift card for you to take that friend out to lunch/dinner at In-n-Out.
  • Just invite your friend to TD and let him/her know that I would personally like to thank him/her for helping me out, and I will give you guys the card!
  • If you can’t get a friend to answer the survey, I’d still appreciate it if you do.  Thanks!

Here’s the survey: Survey About the Bible

Thanks!

Hey TD,

I have a favor to ask.  I am taking a course that is exploring the origins, historicity, reliability, impact, etc. of the Bible.  I have an assignment due soon and I need your help.

I Am Proud of You, TD!

Hey TD!

Well, at the TD Kick-Off, God unexpectedly challenged us right out of the gates to see what we were going to do when presented with someone in need.  We had to make some game time decisions as to whether “the show must go on” or whether we would incorporate and receive what God brought our way.  It was a poignant and powerful time with Gilbert, and I am incredibly proud of the way you responded, in word and in deed.  Your understanding of the situation and your willingness to generously seize the opportunity to be His hands sets the tone for the year ahead, where TD will be more generous, liberal, and joyful with our time, talent, and treasure than we’ve ever been in any year of TD’s history.  And I have a suspicion that we just may be more blessed than ever, as well, in the ways that count.  Great job, TD!  I am proud of you! – Arthur

9/16 – Offerings 5 – “SEE”

TD Fri. – Offerings 5 – “SEE”!!!!!

[Kylie and crew doing body worship at Offerings 4 ot Psalm 139 (Wonderfully Made)]

Hey TD!

Have you ever read or passed by something a million times, when suddenly – you actually SEE it for the first time?  This is the experience of every child who has been adopted into the family of God and been given the Spirit of God – for “What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand [or SEE] what God has freely given us.” (1Cor 2:12)

This Friday’s Offerings 5 is an opportunity for us to spend time as a family – to love on, delight in, celebrate and worship with our Heavenly Father – by expressing and exploring the various capabilities He has given us to create and reflect who He is.  Whether in the form of a simple letter, a poem, a painting, a song, a dance, a recitation, or a reflection – we can share with each other what God has been teaching us to SEE, as we learn to SEE more truly ourselves, each other, and HIM.

If you are interested in bringing a smile to your Father’s face 🙂 and giving an offering – even if you don’t know what it is yet – please contact your small group leader TODAY!

“Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known.  But we know that when [Jesus] appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall SEE Him as He is.” 1 John 3:2

Thanks! – Rebecca
