Tower Grove April Newsletter A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR TIM Tower Grove Family, It was great gathering to celebrate Easter with you all this past weekend! It was a special opportunity for us to come together with friends and family and be reminded of the hope and joy that comes from the promise of God’s unconditional love and grace – demonstrated through the resurrection of Jesus. Something that brought joy to my heart this weekend was seeing how we can all enter in from different places, experiences, and backgrounds, and worship God as we celebrated together. What a foretaste and beautiful picture of the kingdom of God that that we can experience now! I specifically want to thank the many people that gave up their weekend to serve and create such a meaningful experience for all of us. Thank you for using your gifts to cultivate a time that allowed us, as a church, to enjoy grace and embody love as we worshipped together. I also want to thank those who were new to The Journey this past weekend. It was such a privilege to have you with us. If you would like to know more about The Journey and explore further what it looks like to be part of our church, I want to invite you to join us again next week at our services that are on Saturday at 5 p.m. or Sunday at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. I’d also love for you to explore our website and join us at one of the many events that are happening this month at Tower Grove.

It's a symbol of the washing away of the old self and commitment in front of fellow believers that you have been made new by Jesus and are committed to following him.
