Walking with a limp

Posted on

Most of us don’t stop to think about how easy it is to walk across the room. Or even go for a longer walk. We just do it! Unless something hurts. Twist a knee. Sprain an ankle. Stub a toe. Or Twist your back the wrong way, and all bets are off. Something we didn’t give a second thought about becomes a big challenge. We might still be able to walk, but it will be much more slowly, and with a limp.  As we continue our series “Fallen Fathers, Gracious God” this Sunday, we’re going to look at the most […]

Father Abraham nearly lost both sons

Posted on

Last week we saw that Father Abraham wasn’t the perfect father many of us have been taught down through the years. He ended up driving his older boy Ishmael away, and almost sacrificed his promised boy Isaac as well. What a way for Isaac to grow up!

Who built the Ark?

Posted on

Noah! Noah! The next contestant in our series “Fallen Fathers, Gracious God” is Noah. We all know the story of how Noah listened to God, obeyed God, and lived to tell about the worldwide flood that came. But there is much more to Noah’s story than a big ol’ boat! I’d encourage you to read Genesis 6-9 this week in preparation for Sunday’s service. Take some time to think about Noah’s story and what it must have been like to be him.  We’ll meet this Sunday at 9:28 for English and 11 for Chinese. Please join us in person, or join us online at:  https://www.facebook.com/tcbcf/ […]
