Living the Way of Jesus
Sunday Services - 8:30 and 11:00 AM


Matt Baird from the band Spoken will be joining us to help lead worship during our 11AM service this Sunday, October 15th.  Matt will also join us in the Family Life Center during the Sunday school hour to share about his heart for worship and lead us in a few songs from his worship album.  The “Growing Up” Sunday school class will be meeting in the FLC this week and will resume discussion on October 28th.

ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL (THIS SUNDAY, OCT. 21): Lucy Tooley & Dennis Larson will be leading a new Sunday school called “Life Lessons: The Gospel of John” by Max Lucado.  This group will be meeting in the second classroom off the FLC.

Hey Parents – Pastor Dave will be speaking at this event and YOU ARE INVITED. This event will be held at the Harrisburg United Methodist Church in the Fellowship Hall starting at 7:00pm. We would love to see you all there, and then continue the conversations started in the weeks to follow at a Parents Small Group study – 6 weeks on the book “Right Click” by Kara Powell. Join us!
Join un-Defined, Inc & Fall Out Shelter Ministries on Tuesday, October 23rd for a professional self defense class open to the public! Physical self-defense is important; just as important is understanding how your body responds in a fearful or startling moment and how to overcome fear. This class will also address diffusing skills, stress inoculation, and emotional reaction management.  This class is recommended for ages 12 and up, due to some language/topics covered.  Kindly RSVP by calling (605)321-0077 or email

Trinity Baptist Church and another baptist church called “The Point” will be working together to serve the Garfield Community this coming Halloween.  From 6-7:30PM on October 31st we will team up for a night of Trunk or Treating in the parking lot of TBC.  Here is how you can be involved: (1) Sign-up to decorate the trunk of your vehicle.  Those who decorate their trunks will wear some type of costume themselves, and decorate their trunk to match the theme of their costume.  Checkout Pinterest if you need some ideas.  (Nothing scary, please.)  (2) Bring Candy.  We are trying to collect 25,000 pieces of candy and have already raised over half the amount.  (3) If you don’t want to dress up and decorate your trunk, you can also help be a candy runner, or serve in the kitchen.  There are lots of ways to help!  Pizza will be served from 5:00-5:45pm at TBC, so you don’t have to worry about grabbing food after work.

We would love to have enough children’s books to give out one per child who attends. We NEED your generous help! Please donate a new or gently used book and place it in the box by the library. Thank you!  Please pray for this event.
