September 8 Newsletter

Hello TCS families. We trust that you have had a good week and hope that you enjoy a great weekend. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you.

Revive Ohio:

The Lima Baptist Temple is hosting a community event known as Revive Ohio next week. Over fifty churches are coming together to take the Gospel to the Lima community. The church will be hosting several meals as well as evening services throughout the week. Please be extra careful in our parking lot as there will be additional traffic in the mornings each day. Please be praying that Revive Ohio will be a successful event in transforming Lima for the cause of Christ.


The 2017 TCS Homecoming is just three weeks away! Please plan to join us on Friday night September 29th and Saturday September 30th as we enjoy another year of homecoming events. A schedule of events for the weekend will be released soon. If you are interested in helping with homecoming, please email Stacy Menke at zaxgirl@gmail.com. There will be a homecoming meeting soon for those interested in helping.
