Secret Church Description
Come join us for Secret Church! Secret Church is a worship gathering and simulcast led by David Platt, the pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham (he is also the author of the fairly new book and New York Times bestseller, Radical). The vision of Secret Church is for a group of believers to come together for intense study of God’s Word and to pray. It comes from the fact that worldwide Christians meet in homes, apartments and other places because they cannot worship freely. And when they do meet, they want to get the most out of their time together, so they spend many hours in study and in prayer.
How it works: The teaching and the whole time together will be simulcast. So it will be broadcast via internet live from Birmingham and shown via TV.
Where: Robert & Jessica’s House (the Cochranes, not to be confused with the Thompsons). We hope you can stay the whole time, but if you can only be there for part, we definitely understand.
When: Friday, November 4
7 PM - 1 AM (thats right, 6 hours)
What: The topic of this Secret Church simulcast is … exploring how the Gospel uniquely affects our understanding of family, marriage, sex, and a host of related (and controversial) issues that are ultimately foundational for the display of the glory of God in our lives, in the church, and in the world. See here for a more in depth description.
Food: If you’re going to be here for 6 hours, you might as well eat. So … potluck! We’ll provide the main course and everyone else brings a side/dessert.
Why: Because we believe that this is a great opportunity to grow in our faith and to know the Gospel more deeply and to grow in our community of believers at Third.

Young Adults – Looking for a Sunday School Class? Please join us Sundays at 9:30 am in the Multi-Purpose Room (in the 500 Forest Ave Building) for our Young Adults Community Class led by Stephen Jenkins. Please contact Ben Wales at email@example.com with any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
Now that 2012 is underway Third is looking to find new volunteers to join in one of our ministries to assist with financial needs. Twice a month volunteers and deacons meet at the church with community members who need help paying a bill. Usually people come needing assistance in paying their rent or a utility bill. Volunteers meet and pray with the people requesting assistance for a few minutes and then make a determination on how best to help.
If volunteering with this ministry is something you MIGHT be willing to consider or just want to learn more about, please contact Cheryl Boggs by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (804) 513-7633.
In the month of January the YAC class will be merging in with other adult Sunday School classes for a J-term topic called “Gospel Without Borders”
On January 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 9:35-10:35AM we will meet in the Sanctuary and hear the following speakers:
Dr. Mark Valeri, Fritz Kling, Elaine Metcalf, Andrew Fuller, Rev. Richard Haney, and Dr. Danny Avula
The J-Term content will span the past, present and future of evangelical missions. Topics and trends that will be discussed will include globalization, urbanization, migration, demographics, and financial/political change. These currents (not to forget the Holy Spirit as well) are all affecting the current and future Church.
Please join us, it should be a really interesting and relevant discussion.
