Concrete and Cranes:
Virtual VBS 2.0!

Joy! Jesus, Our Strong Foundation!

With joy in our hearts do we praise and give thanks to our Magnificent God!  It is with His Mighty Hand that He brought:

  • 81 children to register for Concrete and Cranes Virtual VBS 2.0, in less than one week.
  • Spirit-gifted technology masters who created a virtual VBS, registered and organized, and administrated the Live Zoom sessions. They worked long into the night and early morning hours to wonderfully provide resources so all could continue to experience VBS at home.
  • Spirit-empowered classroom teachers and leaders who connected with each child through virtual breakout rooms guiding them in knowing God through His Word and as their Savior and Lord.
  • Spirit-inspired videographers and editors who told the Bible stories accurately and with such creativity.
  • Spirit-filled virtual craft leaders and snack idea leaders who brought the fun to VBS for every age level.
  • Faith-filled and faithful prayer warriors – the cranes lifting up VBS to God!

OUR STRENGTH IS GOD ALONE!

Thank you for petitioning our Great God. Continue to pray for the families that participated in VBS:

  • Continue to lift up the children in your prayers as they begin school.
  • Pray that God will provide wisdom as they grow in their faith and as they continue to build strong foundations for life in the love, forgiveness, worth and promises of Jesus.

FOUNDATION AND CROSSBEAMS!

With God, all things are possible! He showed us He had a blueprint plan to draw the children to Him even when we could not gather in person. What God starts, God completes! “I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion, until the day of Christ Jesus!” (theme verse from Philippians 1:6)

神是基石和棟樑!

與上帝同在,一切皆有可能!祂向我們展示了祂有一個藍圖計劃,即使我們不能親自見面,也要把孩子們帶到上帝面前。上帝開始,上帝完成! “我深信那在你們心裡動了善工的,必成全這工,直到耶穌基督的日子。!” (腓立比書1章6節的主題經文)

GEMS / Bethelites Fellowships Celebrate

On Friday, June 12, 2020, the GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) Club and Bethelite Group finished up the year with a car parade. The girls had decorated their cars with scripture and signs based on the lessons we had covered during the year. It was wonderful to see them in person again, through the windows of their families’ cars, along with hand-crafted reminders of God’s truth, serpentining around the lower parking lot.

This picture of the counselors taken just as we had finished cleaning up reminds me of God’s amazing goodness. Each of us has very little margin in our lives, and yet God has invited us to use our gifts to mentor the 23 diverse 2nd-8th grade girls in our club. Sometimes it is a challenge. But what an honor. To God be the glory. Pray for us as we regroup over the summer and plan for fall in these uncertain times.

6月12日,GEMS(Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior)和Bethelite 以汽車巡遊結束了一年的课程。 根據我們一年中的課程,這些女孩用經文和標誌裝飾了自己家的汽車。 很高興能够通過车窗看到她們,以及手工製作的關於上帝真理的提醒,蜿蜒排列在教会停車場周圍。

就像我們完成清理工作時所拍攝的輔導員照片一樣,使我想起了上帝的奇妙善良。 我們每個人的生活都很忙碌,但是上帝邀請我們使用我們的恩赐來指導23位2-8年級当然女孩。即便有時這是一個挑戰,但這是多麼大的榮譽啊。願榮耀歸與神。當我們在這個不確定的時期重新集結並為秋天計劃時,為我們禱告。

Praise God for what the 30-Hour Famine accomplished

We pray that He will multiply these small acts of faithfulness to do greater things. TFC shares our sincerest THANK YOUS to everyone who supported our first ever Virtual 30-Hour Famine! With your help, we completed our fundraiser and raised $1,100 through World Vision to fight hunger around the world. We were also able to help several families in our own church community with trunk loads of grocery care packages.

 

“Enough for All”: Enough food, enough respect, enough love. A world with enough for all may seem impossible to us, but nothing is impossible for God. TFC took part in a Virtual 30-Hour Famine on May 22-23, 2020 to fight hunger in our community and around the world. From fundraising through World Vision, to delivering grocery care packages to families in need within our community, we trust God to do big things with our smallest acts of faith. We believe He is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us.

“夠我們用的”:足夠的食物,足夠的尊重,足夠的愛。對於我們來說,一個人人都有足夠供應的世界似乎是不可能的,但是對我們的神而言,沒有什麼事不可能的。 TFC於2020年5月22日至23日參加了線上的飢餓30小時活動,以消除我們社區和世界各地的飢餓。從通過World Vision募款,到為社區中有需要的家庭提供食品等,我們相信神會通過我們小小的信心行為完成祂的偉大計劃。我們相信神的大能超過我們所求所想。

~ Wesley

Update: HIS Group College Fellowship & English Sunday School-Adult EducatioN

更新:”祂的”大學生團契和英文成人主日學班

So grateful to God! The first week of the Safer at Home Order left me at a total loss, wondering what would happen if our church family couldn’t meet? One week led to two and now five weeks later we see how God provides and reassures us He has His eye on us. He always does and in ways we would not have ever imagined! And I am so thankful to Him!

感謝神! “更安全的家庭秩序”的第一周雖然讓我不知所措,想知道如果我們的教會弟兄姊妹不見面會怎樣?然而一周、兩周,到現在五周後,我們看到了上帝如何供應和使我們安心,祂親自照看我們。祂總是以我們從未想過的方式成就!我非常感謝神!

 

 

Trusting God,

信靠神的,
