Easter Season Events and Announcements

We are excited to invite you to a number of events and growth opportunities (details are forthcoming, but please mark your calendars):

In addition to Sunday worship, we will continue regular midweek prayer services as an opportunity to pray, faithfully connect and support each other in a smaller and more personal setting. Please keep an eye out for upcoming announcements with more information.

A series of sermon talkback gatherings will offer an opportunity to connect the rich meaning of our Scripture readings and the day’s sermon with our faith and our daily lives. Join us after worship in Fellowship Hall on May 4th, May 18th, and May 25th.

Starting on Sunday, April 27th, the Easter Season team will collect items for Bags of Hope care kits that will be distributed to Strong Hospital oncology patients at the Pluta and Wilmot Cancer Centers. Each kit  will include the following: bottle of water, nut free chocolate bar, word search book with a pencil, unscented hand sanitizer, unscented miniature body lotion, lip balm, small packet of tissues. If you wish to let the Easter Season Team purchase items, we welcome donations. We will be collecting until Sunday, May 25th. Thank you for your merciful help!

Give life, give blood! Every 2 seconds someone in the US needs blood and 1 donation can save up to 3 lives. The Brighton Town Hall is hosting a blood drive on Thursday, May 1st, 2-7pm, 2300 Elmwood Ave. The Brighton High School is hosting a blood drive on Saturday, May 10th, 9am-2pm at 1150 South Winton Rd. For more information or to make an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or click http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood. Walk-ins welcome!

On Mother’s day, May 11, we will join over 8,000 congregations and groups and host a collection for Blanket Sunday in support of the Church World Service. Our contributions will fund blankets and mosquito nets, emergency food packages and water pumps. We can help rebuild lives and sustainable communities in areas of disaster and displacement. What an opportunity! What a blessing!

On the afternoon of Sunday, May 18th, we will join the deacons in their visit to Highlands at Brighton nursing home for worship and fellowship. We will get to see old friends and current TCPC members, make new connections and share the good news. The address is 5901 Lac De Ville Boulevard and we will be starting around 2-2:30pm; more details will be forthcoming.

We hope to see you at worship, or in one or more of these opportunities and events. Join us in the adventure!

Christ is risen!! He is risen indeed!!

OUR STRUCTURE

“Like the world around us, the Christian church, too, has its calendar of seasons, its circle of spiritual practices to shape and deepen our journey of faith. If we live into these seasons, our rhythms become Christ’s rhythms; our lives become the Spirit’s life, for the God who walks with us walks with us in time.” – Rev. Brandi Wooten

In 2012, TCPC adopted a new structural model that is increasingly common in our Presbytery, the Seasons Model.  Rather than having topically based committees, such as Worship, Mission, Christian Education, and Evangelism, that run indefinitely, TCPC is led in all of these same areas by Season Teams, which guide the church for a single liturgical season (i.e. – Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, etc.).  In preparation for their leadership, these teams study scripture, work with Holy Spirit and each other to develop a specific theme for the season, and help direct the church using that theme.

During each liturgical season of the year, we have regular opportunities for hands-on mission, sharing the joy of our faith with the community, learning about Christ and our Christianity, and celebrating the special holy days of our faith.  To see what’s happening this season, see our online calendar, or follow us on Facebook.

If you’re looking to serve Christ and the community through the church, being a member of a Season Team is open to both members and regular visitors, and participation in missions and events is open to all.

“For everything there is a season, and for everything a purpose under heaven”  – Ecclesiastes 3:1
