TPC Family & Friends,

What an awesome Easter celebration we had this past weekend! Thank you to everyone who participated in making that special day happen! We had several decisions to follow Christ, and several of you shared about some powerful conversations you had with family and friends after the service. That is what it’s all about. The message of Jesus is truly GOOD NEWS!

We still have tons of opportunities to connect with our friends and community. Check out a few of those opportunities below.

Blessings,

Alan

TPC Family & Friends,

He is risen! Easter weekend is here, and we have so much to celebrate. Life itself is such a wonderful gift, and knowing that Christ has paved the way for our eternity should give us so much joy! Sometimes when our circumstances are bad, we wonder if God could really love us. Don’t look at your circumstances — look at the cross! The cross is our reminder of our value to God and just how much He loves us!

“For God so loved the world, that He gave his one and only Son...” John 3:16

We hope you will join us this Easter season. Here are some updates below.

Blessings,

Pastor Alan

A note from Alan header

TPC Family and Friends,

As many of you learned last week, we have recently been approached by an outside party with a unique opportunity to purchase a rather large sports facility in the area. We have scheduled a second information meeting to be held this Sunday, March 19th, immediately after church. During our first meeting, we had some great discussion with a lot of good questions. It appeared that most everyone felt comfortable taking a closer look. While we will have time for more Q&A after our second presentation, our primary goal is to confirm the church’s willingness to take a closer look. This would require that we, as a church, be willing to put down $50,000 earnest money that, from our understanding, is fully refundable if we decided not to move forward during the 90 day escrow period. We have asked a real-estate attorney to look over the contract to confirm that understanding.

We hope you will join us!

Thank you,

Alan

Our mission statement is based off of Isaiah 61:1-3 where God invites us to join in on what He’s already doing in Northern Colorado and around the world. Simply put, "Our mission is to love the city of Fort Collins into a relationship with Jesus Christ and to give away to the world what God has give us!

Hi TPC Family & Friends,

Ashley and I had an amazing time this past week at the SEND Conference in Long Beach, CA. It was good for us to get away and get refreshed spiritually! A big “thank you” to our Worship & Youth Leader, Jeff Lorimer, for not just holding down the fort but for also doing an amazing job kicking off our new sermon relationship series: X’s & O’s. Great job, my friend!

This weekend’s message is called THE PRE-GAME where I’ll be talking about the single life, dating and sex. Regardless of if you are married or single (no matter the age), you need to hear this! Parents, you need to bring your teenager (or preteen)! I promise they are not immune to this. While the message is PG-13, I think anyone in 6th grade or older needs to hear it. Take a second and check out this article below that came out this week in USA Today — survey-singles-shows-new-dating-patterns. Here’s the deal: if the Bible addresses an issue with unrelenting frequency and urgency, and if that issue is one of the strongest natural forces in the world today, then we as the Church are obligated to talk about God's will on that issue. The sexual life of the unmarried person (we will talk about married people next week) is of great concern to God and therefore should be for us as well.

Alright, we have a lot going on this month — check it out below!

Blessings,

Alan

A note from Alan header

TPC Family & Friends,

I'm so excited to bring to you this weekend's message in our third and final installment of TABLE TALK: A Place of Mission. I'll be teaching out of Luke 5:27-39. Take a second, and check it out before coming on Sunday morning.

Also, don't forget that immediately after the service we'll begin our Community Group Fair. At that time, you'll have a chance to meet some of the leaders, ask questions, and begin to make a decision on what group(s) you might want to join this trimester.

I hope you will join us.

Alan

TableTalk Website

We are starting a new series this weekend called “TABLE TALK: Conversations about the Mission of the Church.”

This is what it is all about: Meals are one of the most important places of human connection. We’re often most fully alive to life when sharing a meal around a table. We shouldn’t be surprised, then, to find that throughout the Gospels, Jesus had a way of showing up at tables. We will talk about restoration, connection, and mission.

I hope you will join us!

A note from Alan header

TPC Family & Friends,

How was your Christmas break? The Reeds enjoyed a week with extended family down in Arkansas and Texas where the temperatures were in the 60s & 70s, but it feels good to be back home. It's a new year!!! Below is a verse that I'm claiming for 2017, and it will be my focal passage this Sunday. I hope to see you this weekend. Enjoy the snow!

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-24

Blessings,

Alan

A note from Alan header

TPC Family & Friends,

Woohoo!!! Christmas is here, and with that is an opportunity to spread a little Christmas cheer! Before you close the books on 2016, here are three things you can do that actually have an eternal significance:

  • If you are in town, make it a priority to celebrate the birth of Christ with us at our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. Don’t be a Scrooge!
  • Help us promote our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service by sharing our event on Facebook, or forward our invite email to a friend!
  • Last but not least, before ushering in 2017, there’s still plenty of time in 2016 to make a difference for the Gospel. Click here to finalize your year-end giving!

Thank you for your support. Exciting times are ahead!

Merry Christmas,

Alan
