TD SG – “Metamorphosis” Videos, SG Study, and Instructions

 

(Nabeel Qureshi’s powerful testimony at RZIM Founders ’13 – go from 34:30 – 1:05:20. Just click on “Watch on Vimeo”.  We were there at that meeting!)

Hey TD!

As promised, Friday night’s meeting on Romans 12:2, “Metamorphosis,” was a powerful one, with some TD’ers surrendering their lives to Christ; while others who had already committed their lives to the Lord earlier in life, prayed to repair and make right their lives in Christ.  Others were just left on their knees convicted to honor Him better with their lives.  Praise the Lord for all of that.  Let us be praying for them all and for God to keep working in our midst, bringing restoration and life to those in TD.

This coming Friday’s TD meeting will be exclusively in our small groups.  Please review the videos above as needed to keep cementing the Lord’s word and His desires into your soul while you prepare your small group studies.

Please prepare your studies well! The better the preparation, the better the discussion!

Here’s the study:

TD Orientation This Fri. (Pre-TD Party @7:15)/Sights and Sounds of the TD Kick-Off

’17 – ’18 TD Kickoff – Hanging Out

’17 – ’18 TD Kickoff Worship

Hey TD!

What a great time we had at the TD Kick-Off! The energy was amazing as seen in the videos above! Daniel’s message to us, “Getting a Real Education,” (mp3) was “lights out” as one described it. Click to listen for yourself!

TD Kickoff

We aim to keep building on that energy this week as we’ll open TD’s doors and explore the nuts and bolts of TD’s various ministries and opportunities, and how you can experience life-change through them.  We’ll explore the engineering of TD, how we do what we do and why we do it the way we do.  You’ll not only hear our vision, but will have the chance to interact with it, as we have a meaningful Q & A time with various TD leaders.

But before the TD Orientation will be our Pre-TD Party at 7:15 in the TD room!  Come play games, hang out, and have some fun before TD starts!

Before you come to TD this Friday, get familiar with Daniel’s message above to put in the first building block of the year.

See you all Friday! – Arthur

One of the Best Messages I’ve Heard This Year! – “The Fact and the Fool’s Gold”

Image result for fool's gold

Hey TD!

It was great to see a lot of you at the TD Banquet! Amidst many highlights, one that really stands out was the incredible message Daniel gave.  Have you ever watched a movie and wished it wasn’t going to end?  That’s how I feel every so often when I listen to Ravi Zacharias, RC Sproul, or Francis Chan, or someone similar.  That’s how I felt when Daniel was speaking – I was learning so much and my faith was so challenged that I didn’t want it to end.  It was gold.  It was also humbling, as I said to myself, “Wow, that was better than any message I ever preached.”

So, I commend this rich and challenging message for the working out of your salvation this summer. If we can all wrestle with it and prayerfully resolve to make appropriate adjustments in our lives, we’ll all be the better for it –

God bless you, TD! We’ll see you on Friday! – Arthur

TD Fri. – “Recalibrating Our Hearts” Pt.2

(“Recalibrating Our Hearts” Pt. 1 “live-type” notes. Thanks Melody T.!)

Hey TD!

It was great to see the sea of green last Friday, with green snacks and Sandra’s green guacamole 🙂  It was also a great time for what Luther called “table talk” discussion and learning.

This Friday, we will continue to examine the x-rays of our hearts, where we will consider just how it is that we got here.  But don’t worry, we won’t stop there! We will also learn how to recalibrate our hearts toward the right!  Make plans to join us as we continue our “table talk” learning format!

Please review the mp3 of last week’s teaching prior to coming this Friday.  It will be very helpful to connect the dots (see notes above):

See you Friday!

TD Fri. – New Message, Aileen, V4V collection …

Image result for re-calibrating the heart

Hey TD!

Well, we have another great time in store at TD this week as we continue our Rebuild series on re-habituating our lives in Christ.  I think you’ll agree that getting back to the ground floor of our lives and beginning the process of re-evaluating our foundations and what our lives have been built on has been eye-opening.  And we need to press on …

“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 3:14

– Our message this week is entitled “Recalibrating Our Hearts.”  It will be a very important lesson that builds upon our previous lessons.  But before we study that, PLEASE REVIEW what I shared during our last meeting in February as a proper segue into our new study – “… WITH God.”  It’s challenging teaching that we need to master (and it’s only 25 min. 🙂 :

“… WITH God” (mp3) Arthur

Previous Messages (mp3’s)

– Aileen will also be sharing this week of a new opportunity for us to regularly serve orphaned children in our area.  She’ll also be sharing why she is pursuing the major she is pursuing.  What major is she pursuing, you ask?  Come to TD and find out! 🙂

– V4V Collection – if you have collected your V4V funds, please keep them in your envelope with your collection sheets (so we can match them), seal the envelope, and write your name and the amount collected on the envelope.  Then, give it to Sandra.

See you at TD! – Arthur

Prep for TD Fri. – “Rehabituating Our Time With God” (small groups)

Sandra will do anything to help young people grow closer to God!  You gotta love her 🙂

Hey TD!

As you can see, we’re serious about rebuilding your lives in Christ!  Last week, we focused on Upward engagement with God, working on our personal time with Him.  This is crucial and foundational to rebuilding a solid, worshipful, fruitful Christian life.

Join us this Friday as we spend time in small groups (preceded by large group), working on improving our personal time with God.

Please review last week’s sharing to help ingrain the proper mindset and heart:
