Thanksgiving State of the Church Note from René

November 22, 2023

Dear TLC Family,

Each November I write a “state of the church” letter asking if you’d consider an end-of-year gift to Twin Lakes Church. This year I want to share very personally why Laurie and I enthusiastically support TLC.

We love how our giving makes us part of a rich legacy: For over 120 years, TLC has served our county. We love investing in missions, with at least 10% of every gift going to global partners. We value the next generation, like the 1,200 day campers at Kruz Kids, 500 students at our schools daily, and our college group, which is up 34%!

We also support TLC because we hear exciting faith stories like these:

“This has been the most significant year of my life. I have been shown what love is–and the best part is my new love for Jesus.” (From our women’s recovery group) 

“I remember the first Sunday I attended. I realized I had found my people: Those who knew how to care for the orphan, the widow and the stranger.” (From a new member) 

“With TLC’s funds, we have taken in over 1,700 Sudanese refugees to retreats where they receive trauma care and hear the gospel.” (From our partner in Egypt, Mike Najjar)

  • TLC is growing: Weekend attendance is up 16%. Over 100 were baptized this year. TLC en Español is thriving.
  • TLC is helping: This year we’ve given almost $600,000 extra to help with the Syrian earthquake, Lahaina fire, Sudanese war, Pajaro flood, and food bank.
  • TLC is healthy: With no debt, healthy giving, and exciting plans for a new community outreach center, we’re poised for more ministry.

Most importantly, Laurie and I truly love the blessing of giving. It’s an act of worship to God. As anticipated, we will need $1.5 million to make our budget by December 31. Every gift of any size makes a difference. Thank you for your prayerful consideration. You can give securely online or by check (see Ways to Give below). To donate stock, please contact our Business Administrator, Leonard Dueck by email or by phone 831-465-3322.

I am so grateful for your support! Can’t wait to see what God does in 2024!

René Schlaepfer
Senior Pastor
