TJC Mercy Ministries
Recovery and Redemption
TJC's Recovery and Redemption Ministry is a gospel centered, Christian based 12 step program designed to help people who struggle with all kinds of sin find victory and redemption through Jesus Christ. We meet every Sunday night at 6 pm for worship and small groups. Come join us!
TJC Jail Ministry goes to the Wilson County Jail once a month to minister the gospel to inmates. We also provide a theology program and release strategy for willing participants. Our team is onsite at the jail every third Sunday at 1:50 pm.
Foster Care Ministry
TJC Fosters exists to wrap arms around families who have opened up their homes for foster children. We do this by forming care teams around the family that can be activated at a moment's notice to help welcome new children into the home. The more time a new foster parent can spend with the children in their home, the more effective they will be. That means that time spent doing normal adult-chores is time not spent with the children building trust. We will also help with the process for people looking to go through the foster care process for the first time so they can open their home up to children who desperately need a safe place to call home.
Our adoption ministry exists to help families trying to navigate the complicated and expensive world of adoption. We aim to walk with families through the process as we answer their questions and set them up for success. We also help with fundraising strategies and funds matching for TJC members. Adoption can happen in the blink of an eye or be drawn out over multiple years. In either case, it can be a very hard and resource draining event, so we want to help walk you through it because it will lead to a beautiful image bearer of God into a Christ loving TJC family.
Hope Beyond Abortion
Hope Beyond Abortion is a holistic ministry approach to be as proactive as possible in the anti abortion fight. We seek to share the gospel as the local church gets out of the church building and boldly takes their faith into the public square. We offer evangelistic opportunities to share the gospel as we plead for the lives of pre-born children in front of abortion clinics. We walk women who choose life by throwing them baby showers, provide resources, and disciple new moms into becoming Christ centered parents. We also have counseling/mentoring for post-abortive women, and the men who may have been part of that decision.
