Coming up at TCGC


Our two worship services are in the sanctuary and masks are required. We no longer offer outside seating due to the low temperatures, but we do have in-door overflow seating in room 117 during the 11am service.

End of Year Giving: To assist you in your planning for end-of-year giving, we want to advise you of TCGC's policy regarding the receipt of charitable giving. December 31, 2020 is the last day TCGC will accept contributions recorded for 2020. In order to ensure proper documentation, contributions must be received by one of the following methods:

All contributions received after Thursday December 31st, 2020 will be recorded as 2021 contributions REGARDLESS of the date listed on the check. Questions? Please email Woody Long.

New Classes Starting in the New Year: We will be offering three new Sunday morning classes in January 2021. The Financial Peace University class will take place during the 11am service and you are invited to sign up here. The Christ in the Old Testament class will be offered during the 9am service in Room 125 as well as online. Finally, a third class studying the Book of Revelation will take place via Zoom during the 9am service. Contact the church office for more information. 

Financial Peace University Resource: In addition to the FPU class, the church has also purchased a license which gives the congregation access to a variety of FPU resources, including self-taught courses, tools, and apps. There is something for everyone and we encourage you to take advantage of these resources. These resources will be available after the 1st of the year. 

Ministry Needs: We are in need of more volunteers to help on the Welcome Team, Ushering, and Children’s Ministry. Please contact the office if you are available and interested. Thank you!
