Heartland Celebration of Freedom
June 30th - 5:00 PM

The Heartland Celebration of Freedom is Saturday, June 30th. Thanks to the many community sponsors we are once again able to offer this event for FREE!

We are also extremely excited that we will be presenting the second annual “Freedom Award” which is a significant monetary gift that will be given to a person in the local first responder/military community.

This year’s event features kids attractions, food trucks (where you can purchase your meal), a full concert line up, the "Freedom Run", and our terrific fireworks display.

We are still in need of volunteers! We currently have 116 of 195 spots filled! Sign up now on-line, or Sunday morning at the table in the Plaza! Please consider giving an hour or two of your time, and don't forget to invite your friends and neighbors to this great outreach event!

 Teaching series in July:  

Jesus said in Matthew 12 that our mouths speak what our heart is full of. When you think of the term “4 Letter Words”, usually words come to mind that are derogatory, foul or demeaning. But God wants to remake us and replace what is foul with what is freeing. In July, we will examine five, FOUR LETTER WORDS that will transform your heart and life:
  • July 1st - Love - I Cor. 13; Phil. 2:3; Jer. 31:3; Rom. 8:30
  • July 8th - Grit - II Cor. 12:9; Col. 1:12-14; Phil. 4:13
  • July 15th - Kind - II Sam. 9; Rom. 2:1-4; Gal. 5:22-23
  • July 22nd - Calm - Jam. 4:14; Ps. 90:12; Eccl. 12:1-5; Heb. 13:8
  • July 29th  - Free - Col. 1:21-23

New Service Times Announced

On September 9th, we are adding a 4th service to our Sunday morning lineup. In addition to the early traditional service that meets at 8:00, contemporary worship will be offered at 9:00, 10:15 and 11:30

All three of the contemporary services will offer Groove kids ministry, City Grounds services. In addition, we are in discussions with local retirement communities to potentially add an outreach service to one or more of the retirement centers in Grand Island.

This will be a time of great opportunity for you to step into a ministry role. It will literally take every one of us doing our part to succeed. Here are some things we are all called to:
  • Pray!  Simply pray, “God, draw others to You by our churches’ ministries this fall.”  And pray, “God, what are you calling me to do to contribute to the goals before us as a church?”
  • If you are attending 8:00 AM service, it would be easy for you to stay “status quo” regarding your church involvement. But would you be willing to be involved with our outreach service at a retirement community? Or to serve at 9:00 in Kid City or Guest Ministries?
  • If you currently attend at 9:30, it would be easy and convenient for you to gravitate toward the 10:15 service. But we challenge you to attend the 9:00 service and serve at 10:15 at Groove or another ministry during that hour. Likewise, if you currently attend the 11:00 service, would you consider attending at 11:30 and serving at 10:15?

September 9th will be a big day, so start praying about your service and who you can invite to join you.

The next Third City & You is Sunday July 15th during the 11:00 AM service. If you are new here, this event is especially for you! Third City & You is a chance for you to get to know us and others in the church, and for us to get to know you! Meet some of our staff, learn about the life and ministry of TCCC and get on board to take your next steps! Email Lora Quandt for more information or visit our web site.
