Happy New Year, church family! I want to thank you for another great year at TCATS. 2020 presented some interesting challenges and hardships, but we got to experience God’s continuing sanctification. This year, God taught me about patient endurance, unconditional love and forgiveness, and humbled me again–as is His way. In 2020, I worked on brevity and on explaining lofty ideas in plain language. In 2021, I will learn how to better interact with ideas other than my own. I’ve always been a sort-of harsh debater, enough to mostly distance myself from participating in debates. These days I find myself wanting to be more charitable and understanding. Please pray for me as I discipline my body and mind more faithfully this year. I would love to hear about your New Year’s resolutions. –Andrew

We will begin 1 Corinthians on January 3. Remember to pick up your 1 Corinthians journal and send us any questions you have as you read through 1 Corinthians so we can plan on answering those as we walk through the epistle together.
Annual Business Meeting (uh, I mean family meeting)- Thursday, January 14 at 6:30pm
The purpose of this meeting shall be to:
- Select officers for the upcoming year,
- Approve the operating budget for the upcoming year,
- Reaffirmation of two elders (Andrew and Albert) and one deacon (Steve),
- Cast vision for 2021, and
- Other business if needed.
I (Andrew) will be writing three pieces before our annual meeting. One considering the importance of elder reaffirmation, another considering the importance of developing and casting vision as a church family, and one concerning the deacons’ and elders’ role related to the church budget according to Scripture. Be on the look out for these three important considerations as we prepare ourselves to discern the will of God for TCATS in 2021.
Please see the church calendar for other scheduled events this month.
