Weekly E-mail Update

TBC Choir & Orchestra,

I enjoyed this past Sunday together! I apologize for butchering the ending of "Jesus Saves." Honestly, I was just caught up in worship and lost my place! The song is a very familiar one, but the version we used at my former church had a slightly different ending. Sorry for the mistake!


  • No Orchestra Rehearsal on Wednesday - We will not have a rehearsal tomorrow evening since I'll be taking care of Lydia while Melissa is out of town and cannot stay late. See y'all Sunday at 8:45 AM!

  • Choir Rehearsal Tomorrow - We have one final piece to learn from the musical! Remember that I'll have Lydia with me, so some of you may need to help entertain her.

  • Upcoming Schedule - As we head toward the holiday season, I thought it might be helpful to go over the schedule for the weeks to come:

We'll either do a selection from the Christmas musical or "Is He Worthy?"
PM Service - Christmas Musical!

I'll post a fuller schedule in weeks to come for the remainder of the Christmas/New Year season. As usual, once the musical has been presented, we'll take several Wednesdays off from rehearsing and pick back up in 2020. On the Sundays following the musical, we'll repeat selections from the musical.


WORSHIP THOUGHTS - Numbers 29:13

"A pleasing aroma to the Lord" - This passage is a description of the animal sacrifices that are to be offered up during the Feast of Tabernacles (Booths). These sacrifices were an act of worship designed to please the Lord as He burnt up the sacrificed animal, symbolizing the complete and total punishment and consumption the animal (in lieu of consuming sinful human beings).

Consider that as we worship! Not only do we deserve to be that animal, we deserve to be the one crucified on the cross and bearing the full wrath of God. Instead, Jesus bore God's wrath for us! How can we not respond with praise? How can we respond casually to such a truth? It should stir our hearts to praise.

So, this Sunday consider the fact that for those of us who know the Lord Jesus, we can proclaim that His sacrifice on the cross was "a pleasing aroma to the Lord," so that the wrath of God has been satisfied. Hallelujah!


"Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live."

--"In Christ Alone" (Keith Getty & Stuart Townend)



  • “He Who Began a Good Work in You” (octavo) - 11/24/19

  • “Is He Worthy?” (octavo) - 12/1/19 or 12/8/19

  • Christmas musical selections: “He Shall Reign Forevermore with Only King Forever” (p. 84 in Song of Joy)

As always, the worship plans for Sunday are on worshipplanning.com for you. And once again, thanks for all y'all do!

Thanks again for all that y'all do!


In Christ Alone,

Kenny Wells
