TC Update/Announcement- March 2016

Hello Friends,
Wow… Is it March already? Man.. time really flies during the high season down here.  Life is so fast-paced when there are so many people in town.  Which actually brings me to one of the highlights of the past month. 
As many of you know…. the high season of December through March is not only the time when tourism is high, but it’s also the time of year when we have many of our seasonal church members in town who are escaping the cold of winter in the U.S. and Canada.  I just want to say, it has been great having you with us.  Thank you for participating in the life of the church… on Sunday mornings as well as at Men’s and Women’s bible studies.  We appreciate the fellowship and the life you bring to our church.  
Since the launch of Tamarindo Church, one of the key families that have been faithfully serving has been Ahren’s Family.  They aren’t often up front in church, but behind the scenes they have selflessly served our church in many ways.  In addition to serving on the Pastor Advisory group… Andy has preached on many occasions, Lydia has headed up the children’s church ministry, and as a team they spearheaded the Kidz Club ministry that we ran last year.  We are grateful for the blessing their family has been to our church and community, and we have mixed emotions about their departure… bummed for our church family’s loss of great friends, but also excited for whatever God has ahead of them. They do plan to visit from time to time… so as we say “farewell” regarding their departure… we can also say, “see you on your next visit”.  Thank you Ahren’s family for the blessing you have been to Tamarindo Church!And “thank you” to all of you as well for the many ways you give to the life and fellowship of Tamarindo Church.  We hope to see you next Sunday!
Lyle & Stacey

Youth Group for students Grades 6-12
Being a young adult is not an easy road.  Life is hard, choices are many and challenging, and we want to create a space where teens and pre-teens can come together to encourage and support each other and where we can help point them to the true love of Jesus Christ.  Romans 8:38-39
We usually meet bi-weekly during the traditional north American school year to have fun, play games, eat food and grow together in our knowledge of Christ and his love for us.
