The future hope of Christians
February 21, 2021


Coming up at TCGC

Our two worship services are in the sanctuary and masks are required. We also offer in-door overflow seating in Room 125 during the 11am service for those who prefer more space.

Livestream, New App, and Giving: We have some exciting changes coming! These changes include a new method of livestreaming our services, a new smartphone app, and a change to how our online giving will work. More information about these changes will be coming soon. If you have any initial questions, feel free to reach out to the office.

Financial Peace University Resource: The church has purchased a license which gives the congregation access to a variety of FPU resources, including self-taught courses, budgeting tools, and apps. There is something for everyone and we encourage you to take advantage of these resources. E-mail the office for access to these resources. 

We made a playlist of songs that inspire us to think about themes we’ve discovered during the Joseph study. You can find them here:

  1. Cry of My Heart

  3. Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus
