TD Fri. – “Echoes of Eternity: A Convo on Heaven”/Dress for “Pop Night”!

Door to Heaven

Door to Heaven by Rebecca

Hey TD!

What comes to your mind when you think of heaven? Perhaps you think heaven is so mysterious that you don’t see why it would matter in your life unless you were dead (or a best-selling author who got a special tour of heaven while slightly dead). Or perhaps you think you know exactly what it will be like and you’re dreading the day when you’ll receive your eternal assignment to strum an instrument in the clouds.

Do you find yourself longing for heaven? Or do you have enough going on in the here and now? Is this life and the next really as separate as our experience tells us? Or do we hear echoes of eternity in all the blessings around us and even in the ache of loss and unrest within us?

Join us this Friday as Robert & Jonathan lead a conversation on what God’s Word and our own desires have to say about the Home for which we were all fashioned.

As a reminder, this Friday is “Pop Night”, so please wear popsicle colors!

10th grade – Rocket Pops (red, white, and blue)

11th grade – Orange Creme

12th – pineapple (yellow)

Leaders/Incoming College – grape (purple)

See you at 8pm!

Rebecca recaps [REFRESH] Ready for College? Day 2 (video)

Hey TD!

Day 3 of [REFRESH] is in the books! It was another great day of fun, laughs, challenge, preparing for college, and falling deeper in love with Jesus, followed by a great discussion among the TD family.  An exciting part was when Rebecca (along with Christina) was announced as the Day 2 video challenge winner! The challenge was to recreate a scene from a favorite movie. Congrats Rebecca and Christina!

Day 3 topics include: “Do You Believe This?”, Dealing With Doubt, Evangelism Tips, “Hasn’t the Church Done More Harm Than Good?”, Interview with Michelle Tepper, Resurrection: Hoax or History?, Vitale Dating Tips, Sam Allberry’s testimony, Q and A

Day 4 is the final day of [REFRESH] and promises to be a great finish. Sexuality will be one of the prominent themes of the day, with Sam Allberry giving the talk, “Why Does God Care Who I Sleep With?” and a live Q and A session that will further the discussion.

We hope you will join us live and will join us afterwards for discussion.  Ask your leader for the link.

In Joy Podcast #4 – “True Freedom” (Sandra)

Hey TD!

In the midst of such historic times of social unrest, people of all colors have been protesting for the equality and freedom of those in black communities across the nation.  I sometimes wonder if everyone really knows the true nature and quality of that freedom that they are protesting for. It not only comes at a significant cost, but with a significant responsibility.

In this fourth installment of our In Joy podcasts, Sandra brings us to some of the history of this conflict through the lens of the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln, who was wrought with heaviness over a nation torn with racial strife over slavery.  It’s a timely podcast on the aspects of true freedom that aren’t often thought of … but need to be.

Listen, consider, and enjoy!

TD Fri. – Getting to Know … ???

Mystery Girl Silhouette

Hey TD!

Tomorrow night at TD, we’re going to have another fun get-together with a game, a time of praise, and … an interview with one of our beloved leaders …

This time, the interviewee is … (drum roll, please) … Rebecca, who will be interviewed by Kathy!  As always, we want to go under the hood and get to know the real Rebecca – the good and the not as good – as well as where she is and where she’s been on the journey called life.  Of course, it will be followed up with a time of Q&A with her, so be ready to ask her the good stuff! 🙂

After the meeting, Arthur will host his usual AAA (Ask Arthur Anything) time of discussing any questions or issues any of you might want him to discuss.  He may or may not be able to give a good answer, but so far he’s been able.  You can at least ask!  If anything, he can at least direct you to a good resource that can be of help.

TD will be from 8 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the usual Zoom link. Get it from your small group leader, if you don’t have it.

Hey TD!

In this week’s posts, we’re looking within to try to see what God wants to clean up to replace with something better.  If you haven’t read the last post, My Messy House, please do so.

We’re excited to unveil the year’s first In Joy podcast, “Joy in the Un-Enjoyable”! Through mix of common sense and personal illustrations, Rebecca reminds us that God often works to give us joy through that which is not enjoyable, and shares how not to miss out on God’s gift of joy to us.

Give it a listen and then prayerfully resolve not to miss out on any more of the good that God has in store for you!
