TD in 2 Parts on Friday


“Our All-Knowing God” (message) – Rebecca

Hey TD!

Would you ever consider drinking from a cup that has been buried in the gutter, caked with excrement and filled with toxic waste? Or would you eat from a bowl that has been attached to a corpse, rotting in a maggot-filled grave?

The obvious answer is a resounding NO!!! We would never allow something so unclean and so repulsive to touch our mouths and enter our stomachs, endangering our health. Yet, we often allow thoughts that are far more unclean and far more repulsive to enter our minds into our hearts, endangering our souls.

To prep for our small group time this Friday, please review Rebecca’s lesson above and work through the following questions:

1. Psalm 139 delves into minute detail regarding the small thoughts and actions that affect the condition and cleanliness of our “cups.” Read Psalm 139.

     a. Where do your thoughts tend to wander and rest? (Col 3:1-2)

     b. What do your actions suggest about the trajectory of your heart?                      (James 4:1-10)

2. What would it take for you to be willing to use a cup and bowl with such disgusting origins? (Matthew 23:25-28)  Think of what it would take for God to be willing to use you.

3. How can a vessel stay pure or become pure?

We have 2 parts to our meeting this Friday:

  1. We will be joining the rest of MBCLA at the Missions Conference in the Main Sanctuary at 7:30 p.m.  After combined singing, we will head down to the chapel on the mid-level of the Main Campus for a message from a missionary.
  2. After the message is over, we will meet at the TD room and finish the evening in our small groups, discussing and exploring the knowledge of God.

See you Friday!

Getting to Know … Kevin!


Hey TD!

Well tonight is our first small group outing of the year!  It’s a time to get to know those in your small group better by having fun together.  Getting to know one another better is an important part of being in TD.  If you don’t know what you’re doing or where you should go, email us at the TD website now!

With that said, and with October being Blindness Awareness Month, we are offering the special opportunity for you all to get to know Kevin better!  Kevin – a junior at Temple City High School – has been joining us for TD and also church services recently. Kevin has graciously accepted to answer your questions about who he is, what his story is, how he does stuff, what he feels, etc. For the next 1-2 weeks, we will be collecting questions that you would like to ask Kevin. Please submit them onto the TD blog! Also, please give him a friendly greeting when you see him at church. 🙂

Ask Your Questions!


Hey TD!

When discussing the possiblilities for our TD theme this summer, one of the ideas brought up was getting questions from TD’ers ahead of time, then answering them during the meetings.  That way, we could be addressing questions/topics that are on your minds and hearts.  From that discussion came the idea that perhaps we ought to make short 3 – 5 minute podcasts to answer those questions instead.

So, that’s where we’re at.  If you have any questions or issues that you would like addressed, please submit them and we’ll do our best to address them!  They can be about anything! – Arthur
