How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”
– Romans 10:14-15
God has called His Church to step out beyond the walls of our building and touch those in the community with the saving knowledge of Christ. We are His hands and feet!
If you have a heart for the lost and a desire to see Tonganoxie and the surrounding area come to know God’s redeeming love, grace, and healing power, this is the group for you!
Current Outreach Work
Each week, TCC has individuals and families that come and check out what’s happening on Sunday mornings during all three of our worship gatherings. Families who are interested in learning more give their contact information to the office, and this team is called upon to make contact during the week after they’ve been on campus. This takes a caring heart, and calm demeanor, a listening ear, and a willingness to speak to folks you may not already know.
$1 for One
Jesus commands us to seek the lost. TCC’s $1 for One outreach program collects weekly $1 donations from our members to aid our unchurched neighbors, fulfilling their temporary earthly needs, so we can share Christ’s eternal offer of salvation and connect them to our church family.
While we aren’t able to help everyone that is in need in this community, but we can offer help and hope to one family at a time, and prayerfully ask that God use it for their benefit, both physically and spiritually.
Each week at the end of each service we ask that each member donate $1 above their tithe. We will collect the money in the designated $1 for One boxes located by gym doors along with recipient suggestions.
The requirements for Recipients are:
•Recipients must be Non-members of our Church or any other Church
•Recipients must live here in Leavenworth County
•Recipients must have a specific need (ex. home or vehicle repair)
Members of our Congregation can fill out recipient suggestion card located on the side of the collection boxes or suggestions may be made via email to the Outreach team. You can nominate anyone that meets the requirements that is in your neighborhood, workplace or gym.
Once a recipient is prayerfully selected, the Outreach Team will coordinate cost estimates if necessary and then make a purchase with the donations. We currently have a list of contractors that are members of TCC who have agreed to provide specific services. This provides an opportunity to build a relationship with the recipients was well as an opportunity to represent Christ and present the Gospel message.
After the need has been met, we check in on the recipients and encourage them with the love of Christ, prayerfully seeking God to bring them into a vibrant relationship with Him. We also update regularly the congregation on how the donations are used and the impact they have on the recipients.
