"The Gospel and Good News never change. God’s grace never changes; but how we are able to reach the world with that message does."

Feeding FriendZ

It has become a beloved tradition for Tom’s Creek to host a rest stop for the Face of America’s annual bike ride.  This special event is where all of us at Tom’s Creek can serve the wounded warriors.  As hundreds of cyclists converge on The Promised Land, they are greeted with applause, waving banners and flags, snacks and beverages.  They always exit The Promised Land feeling loved and supported.

 

The Feeding Schubert if of Carroll Vista and Tom's Creek are continuing to provide meals for those in need at the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Taneytown, MD.  The meals are prepared in the Tom's Creek kitchen.  As of September 14th, we have served 11,473 meals.  We want to thank all of you who have helped, donated food items and money. 

 

Please contact Jeanne Schubert if you have any questions about this ministry.  Thank you.

When a runner is on second base, the chances of scoring are greater. Second base is the NOW (Nurture, Outreach, Witness) Ministries of the church.  Remember, ministry is the heart of the church!  Where a congregation has claimed a vision for its mission and ministry, there is new life and vitality!

 

1. The NURTURING MINISTRIES give attention to needs of the congregation, including education, worship, Christian formation, and stewardship.

 

2. The OUTREACH MINISTRIES give attention to the local and larger community ministries of compassion, justice, and advocacy, which can take many forms.

 

3. The WITNESS MINISTRIES give attention to evangelistic outreach and sharing of faith stories, communications, lay speaking ministries, and other means that express witness for Jesus Christ.

Operation Christmas Child

The NOW Committee deeply appreciates each shoebox and prayer that were given to support Operation Christmas Child.  A total of 62 boxes were delivered from our Church in 2021.

A global pandemic isn’t stopping Operation Christmas Child from

delivering gift-filled shoeboxes to

boys and girls in the far corners of

the world.  Children need hope now

more than ever in such uncertain

times, and these tangible expressions

of God’s love can be a great encouragement.  Most important,

children need to hear the Good News

of Jesus Christ!
