...and he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season. And its leaf does not wither, and in whatever he does, he prospers!" Psalms 1.3
Building a strong congregation to produce fruit for the Kingdom of God!"

It has been a really good spring here at Tompkins Baptist Church. As the virus receded, we were able to have an awesome Easter weekend celebration even if we did have it in four services, and the crowd was about the same as we had two years ago before Covid!
Summer is here! Beginning tonight, June 2, 2021, we will have Summer Games over the next couple of months. Ages 4 - 5th Grades. If there are nights the children need special things like bathing suits, please see our Tompkins Awana page. Our Wednesday Night time is 6 p.m. - 7 p.m.
We are excited about VBS coming up June 27 - July 1! 5:30 p.m - 8:15 p.m. 3 years - 6th Grade! Please visit our Tompkins Baptist Church VBS page on Facebook to get your child registered!
We are already looking forward to our new Awana year which will begin Wednesday, August 11, 2021!
Stay tuned to our Tompkins Awana page for updates throughout the Summer!

As we have pushed on into late spring, more and more people have returned to worship, and it has been a welcome sight. There is really no good substitute for all of us being in worship together.
Currently, two worship services with an overflow for the 11am service in the Fellowship Hall. The early service is still at 9am, and it has continued to grow each week.
We are still not doing a service on Sunday night, but we are doing everything else. Sunday morning is a complete schedule, Worship at 9 and 11, and Sunday School at 10. We have all of our Sunday School classes back up and running including a full nursery schedule for the worship services and for Sunday School. We are also doing a complete Wednesday evening schedule, youth, children, and adults.
AWANA has just concluded, and it was a great semester! I am really looking forward to the fall and seeing what we can accomplish in AWANA with a full unhindered semester! It is amazing what the Children's ministry staff has accomplished with all the obstacles they have had to navigate the last two years ministering around the construction of the new building, and then the virus. Let's just say it has been interesting.
Now that AWANA has concluded for the spring, we are staring VBS in the face, and preparations are in high gear for a wonderful VBS this year! I'm really excited for the opportunities it presents, our first VBS in the new building The dates for VBS are June 27-July 1. Your child can register for VBS on Tompkins Baptist Church Facebook page, or the main TBC Facebook page. There will also be a link on this website soon.
Youth camp is also coming up soon, July 15-18. They are going to Camp Baldwin. There are still a few spots open, and they can get a few more spots if needed, but time is of the essence. It is an incredible group that is going. I think the number currently on the list is 73. I know your child would have a great time. Every year, the lives of youth , and adults, are changed at youth camp, so I hope if you haven't already signed your child up that you will soon!
It's going to be a great summer!
We are also working on getting Deacon ordination scheduled. We have 6 or 7 new deacons to ordain, and of course Deacon Selection coming up late in the summer, but I don't have anything definitive to report on that right now. We're trying to get the guys schedules worked out., and when ordination services will be. It could be as late as September.
Anyway, hope you have a great week! If you are out of town or on vacation, be safe, have a great time, see ya soon!
