March 27th, 8 PM – Pastor Ciara announces cancellation of Easter Scavenger Hunt
Unfortunately, Pastor Ciara had to cancel the Easter Scavenger Hunt this year.  To all who had signed up to volunteer, thank you so much for your willingness.  We will prayerfully get to do it next year.  For this year, we would still like to give families something so they can do their own egg hunts at home.  We still need empty or filled eggs and Easter baskets.  If you are able to help with this need, you can drop the items by 4414 Huntwood Drive or call Pastor Ciara to set up a different arrangement.

March 12th, 5:00 PM – [email protected] Executive Council announces postponement of TNT
“Talents, opportunities, gifts, graces, relationships…Each of these are among the points that are easy to connect to, to relate to, to point to and say: this thing is From God… For God. Yet this journey too, this next step, this next breath, this next hope, too, is From God… For God. Even in the midst of the challenge, God is with us. Our hope is more than just a thing stated; our Hope is formed, founded and forged; From God… For God. And, so into the days ahead join with us as we pray together, we hope together. What draws us together is this great life-changing, disciple-making, world-shaping, movement that is TNT… From God. For God. Due to the global and local concerns from COVID-19, the TNU and the TNT executive council are postponing [email protected] and pursuing alternative dates and options. We are grateful for your prayers and urge everyone to be cautious. We believe God has a great plan for the students who intend to go to TNT, and we pray for direction on how we proceed.”
