ETCH: Equipping and Transforming Church and Home

ETCH is the Thomasville Road Baptist Church strategy for Equipping and Transforming Church and Home. The goal of ETCH is to connect the church and home in the spiritual formation of its members in order to be radically transformed by the power of Christ to make a radical impact on our world. ETCH will help your household establish a rhythm of moments and milestones that shape hearts into the image of Christ and leave a legacy of faith.

"And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ" -Ephesians 4:11-12

ETCH Overview

We have created an ETCH Booklet that gives an overview of the ETCH strategy, including the Biblical foundation and introduction to the milestone ministry component (ETCH-Life) and the equipping ministry component (ETCH-ed).

You can read the ETCH booklet HERE.


ETCH-Ed is the education arm of the ETCH strategy. It involves a variety of short-term classes for all walks of life aimed at equipping our faith family for building a lifelong legacy of faith. Each semester of ETCH-Ed offers a variety of classes for adults that are Biblically-based, topical, and address real-life concerns. ETCH-Ed class are typically 6-weeks long, and happen Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 p.m. We occasionally break in between semesters to have time for the entire faith family to come together for various worship and fellowship experiences, as well as quarterly member meetings.

ETCH-Life is our life-span approach to connecting the church and home in the discipleship of its members. It involves working within the natural development of life during key times of transition to celebrate milestones and create moments for building faith. The ETCH-Life Map shown in the ETCH booklet (in ETCH Overview tab) depicts these milestones, which are opportunities to commemorate what God has done up to that point, and to prepare you for the next phase of life. We invite you to explore the ETCH-Life Map to see the various church experiences and home partnerships/resources that will come alongside each milestone. 

You can read the various church and home experiences for each milestone HERE.
