TJ's October 2016 Newsletter

Hello TJ's Family & Friends,

If you're not smiling, you're doing it wrong!

Here are a few updates on our branches:
TJ's Cafe (Facebook): We will be experimenting soon with AirPress and brewed versions of our awesome Guatemalan coffee for those that are in a hurry. We also have great loose leaf teas, sodas and a bit of snackage. It's a simple selection for now as we build momentum and we will expand as finances allow. Support local!!!

TJ's CAVE (Facebook): We're looking forward to having The Raynor Brothers (plus a few guests) join us on November 4th for a jazztastic performance. They brought the heat the last time they jammed at TJ's so we look forward to packing the house out. Namon Mason will possibly be joining us again for some folktronica acoustic action. We'll be pushing the Creative Arts Expo and Open Mic for those who want to share their talents on multiple levels!!! If you or someone you know is interested in booking a gig or special event with us, let us know. Having SPONSORS will greatly increase our capacity to book a diverse caliber of artists and compensate them so that we can continue to offer many gigs for FREE to the public. Would you or your business consider supporting us?

TJ's Store (Facebook): We've got random unique stuff that you won't find in stores. It's currently a limited inventory but if you buy lots of it, we will have more resources to replenish with additional creativity!!! We currently have various paintings, jewelry art (upcycled guitar string bracelets, earings...), coffee koozies, local musician CDs, T-shirts, coffee bags (burlap & fabric)...etc.
Thorsby Band/Ministry (Facebook): We're still all over the place and trying to incorporate babies into our adventures!!! We host a weekly community group in our home, serve our community through various branches of TJ's and engage in various marketplace ministry adventures. We travel as the Lord leads to join forces with other ministries. We have a heart to reach the lost and strengthen the saints.
Burn New Bern (Facebook): Our main focus this month will be on hosting a 77 hour worship, prayer and outreach gathering called Catapult - Weapons Of Warfare at Union Point Park on Oct 28-31st. This is a local/regional event gathering a remnant of believers going hard after the presence of God. Add your email on the Burn website to get on our monthly newsletters list and check out the events on facebook for more details.
Craven24Seven (Facebook): We are super excited to announce that we have over 1000 hours of prayer coverage for Oct/Nov documented on C247. We're averaging 10-20 hours per day during some of the fasting and prayer initiatives going on in our local areas. We encourage YOU and your ministries to jump in with us if you're doing extended times of worship and/or prayer. We have made a Prayer Room available at TJ's Cafe from 6am-9am Mon-Sat so our community in Eastern Craven County has a place to go if desired. We need YOU to participate with us to fulfill the vision of covering Eastern NC in 24-7 prayer! Would you be willing to sign up for a one hour time slot? Daily? Weekly? Monthly??? He is worthy of it all!

We need your support to sustain the branches of TJ's. If you feel led to sow prayerfully, financially, voluntarily or however else you can think of, please let us know. We welcome, encourage and appreciate your support!
You are AWESOME! Sometimes we just need a reminder!
Michael Thorsby
