a season of rest

September 2021

After listening to the feedback of multiple life group leaders and area coaches, as well as carefully considering the overall health (emotional, mental, physical, spiritual) of our serving body at TRC, we have come to the decision of entering into an extended season of rest at Lisle until the beginning of 2022 - during which time we will re-evaluate the structure and direction of life groups. Therefore, there will be no formal weekly life group meetings at TRC Lisle for the time being.

The growing trend of burn-out over the past few years, as well as our lack of leaders available for the upcoming fall, has caused us to make the very difficult decision of taking a step-back to reconsider and re-imagine our vision of life group ministry. Ultimately, we want to develop a healthier life group culture for both our members and leaders. For life groups to become life-giving rather than life-draining. We also recognize and understand that each campus has different needs, and so although Lisle will be entering a season of rest, City life groups will continue to meet in the fall.

However, we encourage you all to continue to meet with others organically and to proactively form groups of accountability, discipleship, and support even without a formal life group structure or meeting in place. Also, in the meantime, we will hold various community events to make sure people have opportunities to connect with each other. More information will be forthcoming on those.

We are also excited to announce that a generous donor has supplied us with copies of Gentle and Lowly by Dane Ortlund, and so if you would like to form book clubs, we can provide copies for you.

We value your thoughts, questions, feedback, and prayers as we continue to try to become a nurturing community that encourages others to grow in their love for Jesus and others. Thank you!

our beliefs

We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.

We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.

We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.

We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
