Our Hands and Feet Offering is an opportunity for TCC partners to give time, energy, and money to local, national, and international mission opportunities. This is beyond the normal 10% of our income that goes directly to missions.
This season’s offering comes with several opportunities to pray and give, and we couldn’t be more excited. We ask you to look over these options and pray about how God would lead you to partner with us.
I Will Pray
For Our Family
For people to come to faith in Christ.
For families and mission opportunities.
For the health of our TCC body of believers
Devoted is a focused prayer initiative that utilizes social media to bring together the entire body at TCC for strategic prayer. We will pray methodically for relationships, growth, and mission opportunities both local and abroad. We have two main online platforms for prayer, which are:
- Facebook Live: On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:00 PM, we will pray for 15 minutes covering pre-arranged topics.
- Facebook Page: On Tuesdays, we will post the “Devoted Minute”, a one-minute, theme-focused prayer.
I Will Give
Reaching the Unreached in Tanzania
We have an opportunity to bring the good news of Jesus to the Massai people of Tanzania in a practical way. Our goal is to help finish a freshwater well project in the Kirya region of Massai country, near Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.
There is a newly planted church in Kirya, and a pastor and his family now serve the people of this region. The well will change things radically for the Massai, as they now drink diseased water from a nearby river, which causes the men, women, and children to suffer from many water-borne diseases. Easily accessible and clean drinking water, drawn from the church’s property, will allow many opportunities for the gospel to change the lives of these precious people.
Also, we can help purchase adjoining property for an expanded presence in that area that will include a secondary school where children will be educated and trained to work the land and given life skills. Our goal is to raise $2500 for the land purchase and $5000 for the well.
Reaching the Less Fortunate in East Tennessee
Our annual Kids First Daycare/Stockings of Love outreach will help buy gifts and materials for needy families in the East Tennessee area. This year our ministry will include families at the Knoxville Burundi Church, West Lonsdale Center of English, Briceville Elementary (107 students), and dozens of families in the mountains of Briceville. For more information on YWAM Knoxville, visit http://ywamknoxville.org. We will also provide gifts for needy families at the Kids First Daycare. Our goal is to raise $1000 for outreach to the daycare and surrounding area.
Feed the Children
We are again offering relief to children and families in impoverished areas of Kenya and the Philippines that have been devastated by lack of food and income because of COVID-19 in those countries. We are working with Victoria Watoto Fund (Alloyce Leonard) and Just Rice Pastor (James Tica), who have been serving these families since the beginning of the pandemic. Your gift will help sustain these families during this prolonged difficult time. Our goal is to raise $1500 for this ministry.
Goal for the Well Project: $5000
Goal for the Land Purchase Project: $2500
Goal for Stockings of Love and Daycare: $1000
Goal for Feed the Children $1500
Total Hands & Feet Offering Goal: $10,000
We have been so blessed, and we want to raise our giving to missions as a Church. So, TCC will match everything given to this offering up to $5000!
