April Prayer Update
REMINDER: Our next First Sunday Prayer will be held on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 8:30 AM in the Chapel!
April is off to an amazing start here at Timber Creek!
We kicked off this month with an incredible Easter weekend. Over 4,000 people joined us for our Easter services and over 300 made commitments to Christ! We are so excited and thankful for all that God did this Easter. Thank you for partnering with TCC in prayer and serving during this powerful, life-changing weekend!
Please continue to pray with us over those who made commitments to Christ this Easter. Pray that they would begin and continue taking next steps in their spiritual growth. Starting Point Week 1 kicks off Sunday, April 8th, and many new believers and new Timber Creek attendees will be taking their first step in discovering all that God has for them. Pray that they will truly come to know God, find freedom, discover their purpose, and make a difference for God’s kingdom!
Just before Easter, we signed a lease securing our location for Timber Creek Nac! God has been so faithful during this process of searching for the right location for this multisite campus. Now that we have our location, there is much work to do as we prepare to launch. Pray for God’s direction and provision in the process of remodeling our location and building teams in preparation for this new campus. Please pray for our Nacogdoches Campus Pastors, Dan & Laura Chanowski, and their family. Pray over the Dream Teams who will be a part of Timber Creek Nac. And pray over the people of Nacogdoches and the surrounding areas who will be reached and impacted through TCC Nac.
Our very first service at the Diboll Prison Campus kicked off on Wednesday, April 4th, with two services and over 300 in attendance! Pray for the men at the Diboll Correctional Facility who heard the message of Jesus and made decisions for Christ. Pray that they would grow in their relationship with God and experience His presence, His forgiveness, His peace. Pray for those who will attend services at our TCC Prison Campus in the future. Pray also for comfort and provision for their families and loved ones.
We are so excited to see all that God has in store for the ministries of these new campuses!
May is Marriage Month at TCC. We will have Wednesday night sessions during the month of May with a special focus on building and strengthening marriages. Please pray over the marriages represented at Timber Creek Church. Pray that God would bring healing and restoration to marriages that are broken. Pray for guidance, wisdom, and direction for couples who are seeking to live in alignment with God and His will for their lives. Pray for the marriages of all couples in all ages and stages of life to be renewed and strengthened!
This semester, we launched our first Encounter group here at Timber Creek Church. The goal of Encounter is to equip people to remove the things that hinder them from a deeper relationship with God so that they can walk in the true victory and freedom provided through the work of the cross. God has already begun a great work in the lives of the men and women who have chosen to be a part of this process. Encounter ends with an Encounter Retreat which will provide the opportunity for these individuals to experience the healing, restoration, freedom and victory God has for them. Please pray for the students and leaders who will be part of this Encounter Retreat. Pray for God’s will to be done in every single person. Pray that nothing will hinder anyone from experiencing all that God has for them. Pray that each and every member of Encounter will return home different than they came.
Thank you so much for partnering with us in prayer for Timber Creek Church, our pastors and staff, our church family, and our community!
