Season of Grace and Growth for Sword of the
of the Cross Community
Triumph of the Cross Community (TCC), located in
Maryland, USA celebrated its annual covenant
commitment gathering in January. We are grateful
to the Lord that seven new brothers and sisters
made their first commitment to the community. Now,
Triumph of the Cross has 45 adult members
participipating in our life. During the gathering,
we recounted how faithful the Lord has been
throughout our history, thanked Him for making us
part of the Sword of the Spirit bulwark, and
prayed for greater Christian Unity.
The Lord has sent us a good number of post‐college
age people. We now have thirty young professionals
who are members or friends, so we have organized
TCC Young Professionals. TCC Young Professionals
has two events per month: a dinner after our
gathering in a community
family’s home, and a second event planned by the
leadership team. Our goal is to create an
environment that is hospitable and gives witness
to our Lord Jesus Christ.

in Seattle, Washington, USA
"He will assemble the
scattered people of Judah from the four
quarters of the earth."
The Lord has been blowing a new Spirit in Seattle,
Washington, USA during the past year. We have
heard the call and joined together following the
Lord to form and grow a Sword of the
Spirit community. He has gathered us from a
variety of communities: the United States,
Honduras, Lebanon, and Mexico. The Lord's bulwark
has been growing in Seattle. We are the Seattle
Sword of the Spirit Community!
We are a community of young families and singles.
Our community life has been growing as well as our
outreach work. Through the variety of outreach
events, retreats and prayer gatherings, we have
been meeting and receiving new families and
singles. Included among those
events was a picnic last August, a Life in the
Spirit seminar in October and many Lord's Day
evenings. Take a look at the picture above of our
Lord's Day Celebration in February.
We have also been reaching out to our local
churches and have established many important
relationships. We have recently completed a Life
in the Spirit Seminar weekend.
Please remember us in your prayers as we pray for
all of our brothers and sisters in in Sword of the
