Happy New Year, Fam!

Well, it is 2021! I haven’t seen you all sense last year. It’s not yet time for me to recap all that God has done in 2020. I’ll do that after our annual family meeting on January 14. For now, I simply want to write you a letter of encouragement before tomorrow, the first SundayContinue reading “Happy New Year, Fam!”

January 2021 Announcements

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.

DECEMBER COVID-19 UPDATE

How do we best serve the glory of God, the good of our congregation, and the good of the community? How does God lead us in His word? Those are the questions we ask when we consider our response to everything. We consider physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. Our highest priority is God’s gloryContinue reading “DECEMBER COVID-19 UPDATE”

Heal the Land: Getting Back to Church

I was talking to a fellow the other day right here in the valley. He claimed that he did not need the church; his church was nature. He defined his spirituality based on the good things he did for others. Sometime after our conversation, the same man complained about always doing things for others butContinue reading “Heal the Land: Getting Back to Church”

It is an umbrella commentaryContinue reading “What is Faith?”

Is Jesus Currently Conquering the World?

As we have been studying the book of Revelation on Sunday afternoons at The Church at Sunsites, the text seems to indicate that Jesus is currently conquering the world, and the world is currently being renewed. The New Jerusalem is currently coming down (Cf. Revelation 3:12), beginning with Jesus’s incarnation and perpetually coming until HisContinue reading “Is Jesus Currently Conquering the World?”

October Announcements

Revival happens unexpectedly. We can’t schedule it. The Holy Spirit moves like the air. We feel His effects but we can not see where He is going or command His movement. This month, the Holy Spirit has moved in our midst. His moving brought humility and repentance in my own life. I hope you’ve experiencedContinue reading “October Announcements”
