Coming up at TCGC

Pizza and T-shirts for Missions: Hungry? Want a great T-shirt? Or maybe you just want to support the youth’s upcoming Ethiopia mission trip?  Either way, we have an opportunity this Sunday and next! After service today and next Sunday, we’ll be selling pizza by the slice and our “love God, love others” T-shirts in the foyer.

Board Game Night:  Join us for board game night on Friday June 14th at 7pm in room 117!  The second Friday of every month, a group of board game enthusiasts meet to fellowship and play games.  Feel free to bring your favorite board game and snack to share. If you don’t have a favorite game, come anyways - maybe you will find one!  Hope to see you there. 

Family Fest:  Stay for Family Fest on Sunday June 16th (Father’s Day) at church after the worship service!  Bring your lawn chairs and/or blankets for a fun family picnic! We will be having tacos for lunch, ice cream for dessert, and lots of fun.  Plan to hang out and fellowship with each other or participate in activities like a water balloon toss, three-legged race, face painting and more!  The legendary City Gates water slide will be in business as well, so bring a bathing suit or water-friendly clothes and a towel if you or your kids want to jump on and slide down the lawn!

Prayer Focus

Global Missionaries: 
Dave and Debbie Tazelaar in Tijuana, Mexico

request prayer for: 

  • The upcoming church anniversary celebration and a group coming to have a children’s event.
  • Angel, who has suffered 2 recent devastating losses – for God to comfort him, and strengthen his faith.
  • Speed bumps which are desperately needed in front of the church – a safety issue for the many children who attend. The government will construct but there have been numerous delays. Pray God will cut through the red tape!
