Evangelism and justice? Cultural engagement and distinctive practices?  Between your Christian community, and the world around you?

Gospel in Life is an eight-week discipleship course focusing on how the gospel is lived our in all of life- first in our heart, then in our community, and then out in the world.  If you have completed the Alpha course, looking for an opportunity for next steps to take on your spiritual journey, or looking for a way to easily join a LIFE Group, Gospel in Life is a great step to take on your spiritual journey.

** Winter Weather and Possible Church Cancellations**

With winter right around the corner, we need to start thinking about snow and the possibility of church service delays or cancellations.  In the event of bad weather, a decision will be made by noon on Saturday regarding the SNL service and by 7P on Saturday night for Sunday morning services.

On Sunday mornings, we may cancel the 9:30 service along with LTA and Student Ministry Programming and just have the 11A service.

You can learn about plans to cancel or delay services by:

  • Calling the church office (508-358-7717) where you’ll hear a temporary message on the answering machine relative to cancellations or programming status
  • Checking the front page of the TCC website
  • Checking CBSBoston.com
  • Watching WBZ-TV

As always, please use your own discretion before traveling in questionable weather!

Don’t miss it.

With the business of the commercial “holiday” season, it is easy to forget the heart of Advent and Christmas. It is easy to skip over what it is all about – that God loved us so much that he sent himself.  “All for love’s sake, became poor.” Ben Keyes and his trio, also known as Ordinary Time, will usher us with music and story into the spirit of that season. Don’t miss it.

Who is Ordinary Time?

Visit ordinarytimemusic.com to hear their music!

Ordinary Time (the band!) is an independent folk acoustic trio rooted in the Christian tradition.  Comprised of Ben Keyes (TCC’er! guitar, piano, mandolin), Peter La Grand (guitar, banjo, dobro), and Jill McFadden (guitar, violin), Ordinary Time presents extraordinarily rich vocal harmonies, skillful instrumentation, and thought-provoking lyrics.  The band’s oeuvre seamlessly weaves the hymns of generations past with their own new songs—often indistinguishably—producing a sound that ranges from bluegrass-tinged Americana to sacred harp hymn arrangements.  The band has released three records and tours semi-annually.

Grounded in tradition, innovative in expression, and mature in musicianship, Ordinary Time offers an important and unique voice, gifting us with enduring tunes for the journey of faith.

Why should I come?

If you love raw, authentic music with a thought provoking Christian message, you will love Ordinary Time. If you like rich 3-part harmonies, accompanied by mandolins and banjos, you will love Ordinary Time. If you are a fan of Ben Keyes, you will love Ordinary Time. If you like robust beards, you will love Ordinary Time.

If you want to draw closer to Jesus this Advent and Christmas season, and be reminded of the real reason for the season, you won’t want to miss this concert.

Hope to see you there!

Ordinary Time will also be leading us in worship on December 7th at the 9:30a and 11a services.
