TD This Friday – Keep it Real!!!

Hey TD’ers!  We’ve got a great night in store for us this Friday!  But we need your help! 

  • First, we need you to come real, as you really are – no pretense, no plastic faces, no hiding, no projections.  We just want … you!
  • Second, please listen to the podcast below, our last of our first TD message of the year, “John the Baptist: Paving the Way,” Pt. 3.  It also includes Jenny’s honest sharing about her journey towards becoming real.  We really want this year to be a breakthrough year for you.  Do you?  A sure way is to be letting more of God’s word and truth to be flowing through you all during your week.  This is a great way to do that!

  • Lastly, please bring a fruit with you to share with someone in your small group.  Got it?  And if you want to bring more than one – like for, say, a fruit eating counselor – feel free! 🙂
  • We’ve got a great opportunity for you to grow in the Lord as I’ll be sharing a message entitled, “The Fruit of Your Root,” taken from Luke 3:7-14 (please read ahead).  Together, we’ll learn how to bear bigger, jucier, more nourishing fruit in our lives.
  • We’ll also have time to sharpen each other in our small groups … AND …
  • Nathaniel will be sharing his newest song, “Wait on Love” for our encouragement!

So, please make plans to come, and feel free to invite your friends!  Let’s keep growing together as a TD family! – Arthur

Podcast: John the Baptist: Paving the Way, Pt. 2

Hey TD’ers!  Sounds like everyone had a great time at our small group outings!  Here’s our second “Total Devotion” podcast on the man Jesus called the greatest man who ever lived – part 2 of 3 of “John the Baptist: Paving the Way.”  Please take just a half hour of your time to review, listen, and master!

Our desire is to help you get God’s Word flowing through you methodically and consistently throughout the week and to allow it to chisel and shape your life, little by little.  But that only happens through repetition and mastery.  We not only would like you to master the Bible, but more so, for the Bible to master you! GO FOR IT!

We’d love to hear any comments or thoughts!  We will post part 3 in a few days, in time for you our next message and small group on 10/18.   – Arthur

Wanna Get More Out of TD? Introducing … !

A great desire of the leadership at TD is to help strengthen and grow your relationship with God.  And we know that starts with knowing well His Word to you.  And the only way to know anything well is  … repetition.  If you are a good athlete, musician, or student, you know that’s true.  In fact, if you’re good at anything, you know that’s true!

I’ve heard it said that it takes something like 12+ times of listening to something before we actually REALLY know it well.  I’ve found that to be SOOO true.  In my formative years as a growing Christian, I would listen to specific key sermons, messages, and lectures over a dozen times and would learn something new each time … and get blown away by God afresh each time.

Now, we realize that a typical TD message for many of you is like trying to take a drink from a fire hydrant, and that most of you only really retain a fraction of the great truth being taught on a Friday night. We realize that unless you review it, you will NOT retain the life changing truth presented.

Soooo … help is on the way!  Introducing … the “Total Devotion” podcast! 

We’ve split last week’s message into 3 manageable parts and will be releasing them every few days before the next message and small group study on 10/18.  This way, you can really master the material and grow in your knowledge and understanding … AND … you can be more consistently meditating on His truth throughout the week, and not just on the weekends.

Please make the time to listen to this first production soon, as we will release part two in a few days.  May God be with you as you strive to give Him your total devotion! – Arthur
