Starting June 21, we will resume holding one 10am Worship Service at the Rosarian Academy each Sunday. We will only allow 85 people to attend each Sunday, and you must reserve your spot online. A list of our social distancing operating procedures is outlined below:

Signup: Seating will be limited due to social distancing requirements. Eighty-five congregants will be able to sign up online to attend. The signup will include electronically signing a waiver as required by the Rosarian Academy, our host. Those not signed up may not enter the building on Sunday.

  • At-Risk Individuals: TPC is asking at-risk individuals to continue to restrict themselves from community worship in compliance with the stated policies of the local, state, and federal government.

There are to be 3 open seats between family or friend groups.  Upon entering, attendees will be guided to their seats by ushers, filling the front rows first. At the end of the service, rows will be dismissed one at a time from the back first.

Not Available/ Not Provided: Nursery and Sunday school classes will not be provided. There are no changing tables in the bathrooms. Drinking fountains will be turned off. Coffee will not be provided. Communion will not be served. Communion will not be served.

Patience And Love: We understand we cannot meet everyone’s hopes, needs, and expectations. A limited return to services can cause division between members, or between the church and the community. The TPC family needs to be ready to embrace imperfect decisions in an imperfect situation. Some will think that the church is being too stringent and others that it is not stringent enough. Please be patient and loving.

The Center

Posted by Jeremy McKeen on

Have we lost our center as Christians? Instead of the center point of our lives being the truth of Christ, is our center merely our feelings and experiences? If so, then we probably have lost the ability to have bad experiences. What do I mean? We go places ... to plays, concerts, movies ... even church, and the purpose is not to seek and savor Christ and His truth ... but to seek and savor experiences for the purpose of feeling good.

And because this is the end goal: To have good experiences ... we often won't allow someone, based on their conviction of Christ and His truth, to tell us that they had a bad experience when we felt good about it. Why? Because it threatens our perception of the experience and feelings. Truth? Who cares if the play's message didn't align with God's truth, who cares if the musician didn't share the gospel? Who cares if the movie was off-color or the sermon off-line ... "it made me feel good! And you can't take that away from me."

The first step to revival in the church today is for the church to get over ourselves, our goals, our dreams, our feelings. It's not that these things are bad and need to be repressed, its just instead of springing from entertainment or emotionalism, they need to spring from truth - instead of being grounded in a love of self, they need to be grounded in a love for the Savior. When we lose ourselves in seeking Christ, we find ourselves for the first time in life.
