Hello TCS families. Philippians 4:8-9 says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you”. Here are a few news items that we wanted to share with you. Have a great weekend!

Elementary Chapel: 

We had a special guest speaker at our Chapel on Friday, February 14th. Pastor and Deputy Damian Tibbs shared about God's great love for us. He shared about the importance of loving others the way He loves us. We appreciate Pastor Tibbs for taking time out of his busy schedule to minister to our elementary children.
