goodbye (for now)

Today, our hearts are full of hurt but also hope. We (TVC) will no longer be meeting as a congregation. We struggled for a few years, but 2020 proved critical as our congregation diminished until we could no longer effectively minister to our community. On July 19th, we as a congregation made the choice to positively reinvest the remaining people and resources into other churches and ministries rather than try to continue. So, our hearts hurt for all the right reasons—the sadness of something good ending, the pain of separation from loved ones. But our hearts are also full of hope knowing that God is faithful; He has kept and carried; He has accomplished His work in and through us. And He will finish what He started in and through us. The seeds planted will grow and bear fruit even if that happens in other-than-anticipated fields. May His glory be shown.
