Acts 13:42-52
Reacting to the Gospel
May 17, 2020


Coming up at TCGC

Podcast: Daniel 4 will be available on Wednesday. In this chapter we see a king, a man with authority, collide with the God of absolute authority and ask hard questions like: how should we interact with the governmental authorities who are making decisions about our lives today? You can access the podcast through Apple Podcasts & Spotify

Partners in Ministry

Good News Jail and Prison Ministry

Dear Friends, The COVID-19 crisis has had an untold impact upon our world – and may have dramatically altered your life and lifestyle. Amidst this pandemic, there continues to be GOOD NEWS that we would like to share with you. Good News Jail & Prison Ministry typically hosts over 100 special events each year to share with you, our partners, how God is at work behind bars, transforming lives here and around the world. Unfortunately, during this season, we have been prohibited from gathering so we have constructed a VIRTUAL GATHERING in order to share an amazing story with you. The link below will take you to our website to view this prerecorded event that will be live on Monday, May 11th  and available through Monday May 18th for you to watch at your convenience.     

 We are trusting the Lord to use this gathering to encourage you and to help meet financial needs. Please feel free to share this email link with family and friends. Thank you for praying for us and for partnering with us to bring Hope to Forgotten People!
