TC Update/Announcements- June 2018

Hey Friends,

Summer is here, school is almost out, and folks are busy making vacation plans.  I know Stacey and I are looking forward to seeing our family in the US this month… and we are so thankful a great team of volunteers at Tamarindo Church who will keep ministry cruising along while we’re gone.  Thank you TC volunteers!

So you might be wondering… who’s preaching while Lyle is gone?  Well.. . fortunately our friends Darryl and Debra Evetts from the International Baptist Convention (IBC) happened to be available during our time away, and Darryl  has graciously offered to preach for three Sundays while we are gone.  Darryl and his wife Debra currently live in Corpus Christi, Texas where Darryl serves as the director of church planting for the IBC.

Also, in place of our weekly Men’s and Women’s group, Darryl will be leading a study on discipleship at the Watsons’ home on Thursdays… June 21st & June 28th, 8:30-10:30am.  Be sure to join Darryl and Debra for some great teaching and discussion on discipleship.   If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Darryl at

Pura vida!  The engineer is telling me that… for real.. this month is the THE MONTH we will be getting our permits.   We are expecting the permits sometime in the next week or two, and that means you should be seeing some concrete being poured and the foundation going in soon.  Woohoo!  As for our current fundraising for the building, we are thankful to say that we only have $29,000 more to raise for entire cost of construction.  Please continue in prayer with us that God would provide the rest of the funds needed.  For those interested in learning more about or giving toward this project, please CLICK HERE  Thank you!

Thank you all again for the many ways you give the life and ministry of Tamarindo Church.  We hope and pray you have fun and meaningful time with your family and friends this summer.   Thank you!

PIZZA FELLOWSHIP-  Sunday, June 10th

Come join us on Sunday the 10th

MEN’S RETREAT– September 10-14th

Hey guys,
So… here’s the scoop on the upcoming Men’s Retreat.  We are headed down to the same spot we’ve been the past couple of years in Corcovado.  Here’s a link to the spot. Men’s Retreat .
During our time down there, we will be going through the No Regret’s Men’s Conference talks to guide our lessons and discussions.  In addition, we will have some free time to surf, hike, spearfish, etc.

Cost will be $250/person and includes all food, gas, transportation, and lodging.

If we get more than 10 guys, we could potentially rent one or two more houses on the property.  For more information, or to reserve your spot, please contact Pastor Lyle at

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.MINISTRY TEAM
Thanks to God for our staff and volounteers who serve in many roles in the church. Please pray that God would continue to build a sense of unity and family among our core church members… especially our Board, our Ministry Leadership Team, and our Volunteer Team.  Please pray that God would bless our ministry team with gifts of the Spirit to serve and lead well.

Please pray to our Father that he would meet our needs in the coming 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.  Please pray that our church members would be salt and light in the community to those who are not saved. 


Please pray for our volunteer team who will keep ministry going while our family is in the US in June.  Please pray for Darryl Evetts who will be preaching and for Elizabeth and Steve who will lead music.  
Thanks and praise be to God in providing the initial finances needed to start construction of the church. At this time we are only $29,000 away from meeting our financial needs for construction of the church.  Please pray that God meets our financial needs… and that all of the permitting goes through with no more set backs.LYLE & STACEY
For spiritual wisdom and direction as we lead the church.
For Stacey’s job in real estate… that she would find good balance between family, ministry and work… and not feel over-stressed or anxious.  And that she would earn enough to pay for our children’s school tuition.
For meaningful times together as we vacation with family in the US this month. Please pray for spiritual and personal refreshing.  Please pray our children Olivia and Wolfie… that they would  continue to grow to know, love and serve our Lord.  And for spiritual protection over our family.
Prayer of spiritual protection over our church and our Ministry Teams…. guarding us from spiritual attack and oppression, and anything that causes dis-unity and divisiveness in the body of Christ at Tamarindo Church.
