TC Update/Announcements- July 2016

Hey friends,
As we give this month’s update, Stacey and I are actually at the tail end of our time visiting family in the U.S. While here, one of the things we are most grateful for is the team of folks that have been keeping ministry going at Tamarindo Church while we have been gone.  It is awesome to see how God continues to grow our church family.  Thank you to all of you who have been filling in the gaps by serving on Sundays!  A special thanks to Mike Manassa, Steve Page and Greg Ehlert for preaching… and to Steve, Elizabeth, and Fabio for leading music.     We look forward to being back this Sunday to worship with everyone!GOSPEL PROJECT

Three years ago, our Children’s Ministry started a curriculum called The Gospel Project. Basically this curriculum teaches the kids all the major stories of the bible from Genesis to Revelation and takes three years to complete.  In each lesson the children are taught the “Christ Connection” from the Old Testament to the New.  Last month, we completed that curriculum!  Congrats to the kids who have participated, and thank you to the Children’s Church leaders who have been faithful in teaching our kids the bible.


On July 11th-14th, several kids from our area will be heading up to Camp La Cumbre.  This will be Tamarindo Church’s first year participating in this camp, and we look forward to fun times, and meaningful time together with kids from all over Costa Rica.  Please keep us in prayer for safe travels… and that God would speak into the lives of all kids gathered for the week.



Next month we will be headed to Corcovado, Playa Matapalo for our 2016 men’s retreat.  The dates for the trip are September 5-8.  During our time there, we will be using video conferences from the 2016 No Regret’s men’s conference for our learning and discussion times together.  In addition… we will be getting plenty of “bro-time” in the surf, snorkeling, spearfishing and hiking.  If you are interested in joining the guys for this trip, contact Pastor Lyle.
Thanks to all of you who contribute to the life and ministry of Tamarindo Church. We hope you all are having a wonderful summer, and we hope to see you next Sunday!

Tamarindo Church Prayer Requests

Please continue to pray for……
that God would guide us in our vision and strategy for reaching and serving our community.

Thanks to God for raising up more people to lead and serve on our ministry teams.  Please pray that God would continue build a sense of unity and family  among our core church members.

Thank you Father for meeting our needs this year through pledges and regular supporters!

That God would create a spiritual hunger in our community, and that we would see many come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.

We are VERY grateful for the donations that have been made so toward the property purchase and construction of a church and children’s ministry area.  Please continue in prayer with us:  1.  In thanks to God that he has given us an opportunity to secure a lot for a great price at a great location.  2. That the property would be freed from the lien against it.  3. If for some reason this is not the property God would have for us, that he would direct us to another property.  4.  God would continue to meet our financial needs for this project.

For spiritual wisdom and direction as we lead the church.
– For Stacey’s new job in real-estate… that she would find balance between family, ministry and work.

For meaningful times together and healthy balance between family and ministry.

Payer over our family and our Ministry Team.
