Blessed to be a blessing!

Posted on

Blessed to be a blessing! You’ve probably heard that phrase before. Maybe you’re already tired of hearing it! But the reality is, for those of us who belong to Jesus, His love was never designed to stop with our salvation. As we’ve mentioned before, everyone that belongs to Jesus is called to help others know and follow Him too! Everyone! Not just the “Super-missionaries!” We’ll be hearing more about these responsibilities and opportunities through guest speakers over the next two weeks.  I’m excited about our guest speaker for Sunday. Pastor Abraham is a good friend of Bob and Olivia’s, and someone they’ve supported […]

Covid protocols at TCBC

Posted on

Covid protocols at TCBC Hi everyone,You have probably heard by now that the CDC as well as Pima County Health Department are now strongly recommending that people wear face masks again while indoors if physical distancing cannot be maintained. If you’ve been paying attention at church, you have seen that we haven’t been maintaining social distancing very well. Especially before and after the worship service and Sunday school hours.  To that end, we’d like to remind you to maintain social distance while on the 2411 campus. We also strongly recommend that you wear a mask while on site. And of course, if […]

“Here comes trouble!”

Posted on

“Here comes trouble!”  I used to hear that a lot growing up. It was usually someone talking about me!  Trouble just seems to have a way of finding all of us. Whether we’re looking for it or not! So, what do we do when we run into trouble? The Bible has much to say about how to respond in the midst of trouble! We’ll look at a Psalm on Sunday written for just such occasions! Please join us in person on Sunday for the combined language service with communion at 9:30 to hear more! If you can’t make it in person, you can […]

God of the valleys

Posted on

There’s a lie running around in Christian circles that followers of Jesus should never be discouraged or depressed. Sometimes we’re even told to put on a happy face for the sake of the non-believers around us. These are interesting—but not Biblical—thoughts. The idea that Christians can’t have times in the valleys, times of despair, does not square with God’s plain teaching in the Bible. The Psalm we’ll study this Sunday will correct these attitudes for us. Please join us in person on Sunday at 9:30 for English and 11 for Chinese to hear more! If you can’t make it in person, you […]

Notice of Covid Positive at TCBC

Posted on

Hi everyone! We were notified this afternoon that one of our church members in attendance last Sunday tested positive for Covid today.  This person was onsite from the English worship service in the sanctuary through our post-Sunday school informal fellowship time in the fellowship hall.  Their symptoms are mild and allergy-like at this point. We have cancelled Wednesday morning’s Bible study as well as our Game Night at church on Friday night and church cleaning on Saturday. At this point we will proceed with normal gatherings on Sunday morning.  We wanted to let you know about this case so that […]

Seriously joyful

Posted on

I’m so excited for this coming Sunday! It will be joyful and serious at the same time. Joyful because we will dedicate two little ones from our congregation to the Lord. We will ask God to bless them and their families. And we will remember what a blessing our children are to us! This calls for a serious level of commitment for us as a biblical community. The world likes to claim that “It takes a village to raise a child,” but God came up with the idea long before any of us! Our church body plays an important role in the lives of each one of […]

What’s the point?

Posted on

What difference does a personal relationship with Jesus really make in your life? As we turn back toward the Psalms for the summer, Psalm 34 will answer this question for us. Please join us in person on Sunday at 9:30 for English and 11 for Chinese to hear more! If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us online by going through our website: www.tcbcf.org then hit “watch livestream,” or go directly to our Youtube page.  Speaking of getting together, this Friday night at 7 we’ll be meeting at the church building for another game night. Eat first or bring your own […]

E Pluribus Unum

Posted on

There has been a lot in the news lately about gearing up for the next Olympics. Some encouraging. Some discouraging. But one of the things that I like about the Olympics is that we usually (but not always) come together as a country, set aside our differences, and cheer for our nation to win.  It is hard to unite a collection of individuals. Much harder to unite a nation of individuals! But somehow, at least until recent years, the Olympics managed to pull it off. We could all join in chanting: “USA! USA!” July 4th, American Independence Day, has traditionally been […]

How we grow

Posted on

We’ve been talking a lot recently about “strength in numbers.” Living in community with others provides security and fellowship. It also provides purpose! When we live in community, God uses our community to add to our community as we share good news with those around us! Connecting with others as smaller groups of believers is how we grow as individuals and as a church.  This Sunday we’ll finish our series on “Biblical Community 101” by looking at fifth of five critical components for true biblical community: Witnessing. We’ll see how God’s people can effectively work together to share the Lord Jesus with the […]

What are you getting for Father’s Day? Or what are you getting the dads in your life for Father’s Day? This is a hard one! Maybe clothes or a tie? How about new electronics?

This Sunday we’re going to talk about the best Father’s Day gift to give the dads in our lives.  Please join us in person on Sunday at 9:30 for English and 11 for Chinese! If you can’t make it in person, you can still join us online by going through our website: www.tcbcf.org then hit “watch livestream,” or […]
