TCC presents “House Church” meeting on Sundays at 10:00am. 42319 Saddleback Trail, Punta Gorda FL. 33982 (In Babcock Ranch). We look ahead with excitement to the opening of the Field House in Babcock Ranch which will give TCC access to a large indoor space for Sunday worship.


Join us on Wednesday morning for a time of wellness, mind, body, and spirit. We gather in the park of Curry Preserve Dr. near the intersection of Curry Preserve Dr. and Lake Babcock Drive (SW Corner). Out time together includes prayer, devotional, and walk (around 2 miles). We hope to see you there.

But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray. Luke 5:16


We grow together as we read and wrestle with God’s word. Look to the “Small Groups” tab in the menu to learn about our current Christian book study. Bible studies take place at Pastor Matt’s house. Join us at any time during the study. All are welcome, whether you are a seeker or skeptical.

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 119:105
