Coming up at TCGC

Thank you to all those who donated materials for the USNS Comfort!  Fortunately, the ship’s mission ended early and they’re heading home this week.  As a result, our donations are headed south to Haiti where they will be used by one of our ministry partners, Stone of Help Haiti, to support community outreach as the virus spreads there.  Thank you once again to all who gave!  Your generosity is making ministry possible.

The mid-week Turn Aside podcast dropped another episode this week as the ladies discussed how to fight back fear and anxiety during difficult times.  Next week, Jeff and Matt join in as they discuss Daniel 1 following the first week of the Bible Study.  You can find new episodes each Wednesday on our website or on
If you like what you hear, leave a rating or review to help others find it.

Prayer Focus

Global Missionaries

Kevin and Lucy Heater in Lyon, France
request prayer for:
  • Pray Psalm 90: 17 for us in the virtual world of ministry as we overcome complications and limitations of technology. "May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us."
  • For our neighbor "FB". He is anxious about the world situation, is it the end of the world? He knows nothing of Jesus. Please pray for him to watch the Jesus DVD and read the NT we gave him, to begin his journey to the cross!
  • For a new Bible study we are beginning on Revelation and the end times because of the present climate; for clarity in teaching and encouragement as we see God's plan laid out.
