Help My Neighbor Initiative

Hey World Changers!  Here at TCC, giving is a part of our culture. We love that about our body! This year, we want to equip missionaries on the streets of Knoxville just as much as we equip our missionaries in France, Russia, Ireland, Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, the Philippines and more. That’s how the Help My Neighbor Initiative was born. As a church, we are releasing every partner at TCC to be a local missionary. We’re asking you to keep your…

No in person sunday services on Sun., Dec. 27 only

Dear TCC, Let me start by wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We love gathering together with you in House Churches and in our corporate gatherings. That is always our first choice. However, the elder team after prayer and discussion have decided to follow the same protocol that we followed the Sunday following Thanksgiving. We will not meet at the building this Sunday only, Dec. 27. There are several factors that played into this decision:…

COVID-19 Update | 30 Days of Prayer & Fasting

Dear Trinity Family, The current health crisis now impacting literally every nation and people around the world is also bringing to many, a sense of hopeless, fear, economic hardship, and depression. Over the last couple of weeks, the elders have been leading a short time of online prayer each evening to pray with and encourage our church body. As we transition into April, we are sensing God’s call for our church to a special emphasis of prayer, fasting, and repentance.…

COVID-19 Update- Where We Go From Here…

Hello TCC,  As you’re all aware, the COVID-19 virus has not passed over yet, and we as an elder time have been devoting ourselves to prayer and fasting over the issue, seeking the Lord and His wisdom on how to move forward as a church. Based on what we have felt the Lord speaking and because of the request of our governmental authorities (Rom. 13:1-3), we find it best to change the formatting of our services for the next few…

COVID-19 Statement & Plan

Hello Church!  In the wake of all that has been happening regarding the COVID-19 Virus, I wanted to take this time to address your questions regarding our stance and plan as a church. First, I encourage you once again to not be in fear over this or any other illnesses. Our God is sovereign, and “has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, and love, and a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). We are called to be…

Matthew 2 | Thanksgiving is All About Worship

Matthew 2 tells the spectacular story of the wise men who came from the east following a star which would lead them to the King of the Jews. These men were Gentile astrologists who had seen signs in the heavens that made them curious enough to make the long journey to Israel for the singular purpose of worshipping this precious child born to be king. They stopped in Jerusalem to ask those who should have known about this event which…

Matthew 14 | Life Lessons from A Day in the Life of Jesus

Matthew 14 opens with the story of the death of John the Baptist. He was Jesus’ cousin who leapt within his mother’s womb when a pregnant Mary arrived to visit Elizabeth. It was said he would be the forerunner of Jesus preparing the way of the Lord. John’s ministry only lasted for 1 year but it was power packed. His message was simple, “Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” He baptized people for repentance but he always…

Matthew 24 | The One Thing That Jesus Doesn’t Know

At the end of Matthew 23, Jesus reveals His heart for His people and His desire for them to recognize who He is in light of their need: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! See, your house is left to you desolate.  For I tell you,…

James 5 | Help Us Help You

Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a…

Hebrews 12 | Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb. 12:1-2 I grew up…
