On Sunday afternoon, August 8th, we went down to 5 Mile Dam for Baptism Celebration. I got to baptize 6 people, Nic baptized 4, our deaf pastor Tim baptized 3, Javi baptized his nephew and Rico baptized his daughter! What a blast it was to be a part of those 15 people’s “Going Public” party! Every one of them has been changed by the power of God at work in their lives! We also met some people at the river who came to church the following Sunday to get connected to what God is doing through The Connection Church. As many people as we’ve got to lead to Christ along the way, it’s just the tip of the iceberg of the BIG things that God has in store for South Central Texas in the coming days! Keep up the great work Connectors! Let’s do this!!!
Can you feel it? After months of working through the process of finding, designing and just working through the red tape of securing a location, we’re starting the work on building out our soon-to-be home. Yes!!! Do the happy dance, it’s alright, no one is watching you.
Just to bring you up to speed, it’s 18,000 square feet of space in an industrial-type facility right between Kyle and Buda just off of I35. One of the craziest things about this site is that it used to be the home of a huge indoor shrimp farm. But we’re done thinking shrimpy. This is going to be the BIG home of a place that will facilitate changed lives starting first in our county and extending through this region between Austin and San Antonio.
Some of the initial work is being done by sub-contractors in our church family. But soon, we’ll have tons of volunteer work that needs to be done. But just imagine with me how incredible it’s going to be when we’re able to meet there anytime for any need, from a home-base for ministries to the community, to our kids and student ministries, our deaf ministry that is exploding, and more!
One of our goals is to be able to meet at the new location for our Easter services this year, but due to delays at the start, this is going to be a hard goal to meet. So please pray with me that this is going to be possible. It’s also going to take big money and plenty of sweat equity. The dollars that a step this big takes are staggering. I have total faith that God is going to provide everything we need through each of us who believe in the vision of TCC. TCC is a dream born in God’s heart that we get to be a part of for His Glory! So hang onto your seats, folks, and get ready for the ride of your life!
Here are a few pics of some of the first steps at the new building:
This year’s Trunk or Treat was the best ever, seriously! It came off without a hitch with well over 1000 people in great looking costumes. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect. And our Connectors (TCC peeps) worked their tails off to make it all happen. Once again, proving that they truly love people and will do whatever it takes to show them God loves them. The amazing thing is, these events always bring a harvest of people coming to check out TCC throughout the year. But don’t just take my word for it, see it for yourself:
