On Friday, December 12th we gathered together at St. Luke Lutheran Church for our Yuletide Celebration. We shared some good fellowship and delicious food provided by our Board of Directors. It is always wonderful when we come together and get to know one another better. Everyone had a great time.

I had a fantastic time this past Sunday at Grace Baptist Church’s Christmas Mission Market. It was my 6th year representing TSCOR. It has become a part of my own Christmas traditions and I look forward to it each December. It was great spending time with Karen Hamlett, Randy Scott, Jimmie Gaunce, Bernie Henderson and Sandy Morrison. They are all volunteer drivers for the Center and Bernie & Randy recently joined our board of directors. Both Grace Baptist and TSCOR are blessed by them all. – Julie

He will be speaking again at St. Mary Catholic Church on Wednesday, October 15th at 12:30 (brown bag lunch is at noon). Don’t miss a chance to hear what he has to say and bring all your questions!
