Twin Lakes Church Newsletter: August 2008
WOW! It's August 1st already -- the summer is sure flying by! It's been so fun to have a front-row seat to all that has gone on! We just completed a month of wonderful guest speakers who both encouraged and challenged us. Throughout July we were blessed with great attendance and giving: Our weekly attendance averaged 158 more folks than this time last year and our giving for the month of July was almost $24,000 more than what we budgeted! I thank God for your faithful attendance and giving -- it is such an encouragement and source of joy!
During the month of August I'll be teaching from the book of Ruth. This weekend we'll talk about what to do When Life Feels Hopeless. Then:
August 9 & 10: Finding Hope in the Small Stuff
August 16 & 17: Deciding to Hope Again
August 23 & 24: The Redemption of Hope
In addition to studying this great story there will be all kinds of other cool things happening!

Throughout the month of August we'll be preparing for our Fall series:
Love. Jesus said it's the greatest command. But have you ever done a serious study on love? More important, have you ever taken specific steps to grow your love? Nothing matters more to God. And that's what this 7-week spiritual odyssey is all about. Please join us!
Thanks for being part of what God is doing here at TLC -- it is a joy to serve Him with you! See you this weekend!
