During this time of social distancing, we have suspended all TCC activities. However, we will continue to provide you and your family with weekly resources to use as you gather together with each other, your MCs, or your DNAs. We will post weekly sermons, music, and discussion questions mirroring the order of service we typically follow on Sunday mornings. Though nothing can replace the fellowship and renewal we receive when gathering as a body, we pray that these resources will help bridge that gap over the next few weeks.
Call to Worship: 1 Peter 1:3-7
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again
to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you,
who by God's power are being guarded through faith
for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice,
though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,
so that the tested genuineness of your faith
-- more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire--
may be found to result in praise and glory and honor
at the revelation of Jesus Christ."
Blessed Be Your Name
by Matt Redman
Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me
Prayer of Repentance and Illumination: 1 Peter 1:8-9; 13-16
"Though you have not seen him, you love him.
Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy
that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded,
set your hope fully on the grace that will He brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance,
but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct,
since it is written, "You shall be holy, for I am holy."
Sermon: Exodus 1-12
By Jarrod Hawthorne
It Is Well With My Soul
by Audrey Assad
Assurance of Pardon: 1 Peter 2:1-5
"So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander.
Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation
--if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.
As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious,
you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood,
to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ."

We Will Feast In The House Zion
by Sandra McCracken
1. Which aspect of God’s nature do you most struggle to feel, God’s transcendence (holiness) which shakes mountains and put us on our face or God’s immanence (God near us) which comforts and consoles? Both are necessary, discuss what it would be like to experience more the one you struggle with.
2. How are you most encouraged to be reminded that God knows your struggles and He cares? Scripture? Music? People and relationships? Something else? How could you now encourage others of these realities?
3. Describe a way in which you feel like God has and/or is delivering you from bondage? It could be a traumatic past event, a fear, anxiety, sin, regret, sorrow, etc. Which area of your life would you most like to experience freedom today? Share with your DNA and pray for each other.
4. Who in your life isn’t experiencing thriving in Christ? Pray for them and ask the Spirit to give open doors and boldness to share with them joy in Christ.
Call to Worship: Isaiah 42:5-9
"Thus says God, the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people
on it and spirit to those who walk in it:
"I am the LORD; I have called you in righteousness;
I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from
the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.
I am the LORD; that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols.
Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them"
Here with Me

Christ is Risen
by Matt Maher
Prayer of Repentance and Illumination: 1 Peter 1:8-9
"Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him,
you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,

Sermon: Genesis 23-50
by Jarrod Hawthorne
Sins are Stones
by John Mark McMillan
Assurance of Pardon: 1 John 4:9-10
"In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent
his only son into the world, so that we might live through him.
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins."
This My Inheritance
by All Sons and Daughters
Whole Heart (Good Intentions)
1. How do you struggle to maintain the balance between God's sovereignty and man’s responsibility? Do you err on the side of apathy because God is so sovereign it doesn’t matter what we do? Or do you err on the side of action?- I am the captain of my fate - I make happen what’s going to happen in my life more than anyone else. How is God calling you to repent and live out a greater trust in Him as you make real choices each day? What tangible steps can you take to live out a better balance of these realities?
2. When do you struggle to see that the Lord is with you? When has the presence of the Lord been most sweet or most powerful in your life? What practices or spiritual habits help you be aware of the presence of the Lord? Help you behold and see the presence of God with you?
3. Discuss opportunities the Lord has already given you to love and serve others during this pandemic. Discuss your fears related to serving others during this time? How can Jesus conquer your fears and grow your faith? Who can you pray for by name who either needs Jesus to save them or they need a deeper and more satisfying joy in Jesus and you can serve them during this time? Discuss and pray for them by name as a family or MC.
4. Any other words of conviction, encouragement, or challenges that the Spirit spoke to you? Share those thoughts to each other as we strive to be vulnerable and encourage each other.
