Timothy’s Leadership Meeting Remotely

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to alter normal routines, Timothy’s leadership now meets remotely to communicate about the spiritual care and business of the congregation. Both the Board of Elected Elders and the Executive Board met this week via Zoom conferences to address needs and implement ways to continue to Touch Lives for Christ among our members and beyond. Each day and week are full of new information to absorb and understand. Please continue to lift Timothy’s staff, ministries and members up in prayer as we all navigate these changes.

The Executive Board is taking the current crisis with COVID-19 very seriously, constantly evaluating ways to keep Timothy stable financially. Even through the uncertainty, the board is committed to honoring tithes to the Community Services League, Hillcrest Transitional Housing, the Missouri District, LUMA, Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Rachel House, Mother’s Refuge, and Heit’s Point. The goal is to focus on organizations that impact our immediate community and church affiliations that need our support now more than ever. The board will continue to monitor Timothy’s financial situation and greatly appreciates everyone’s continue support. The board is also investigating and applying for various types of financial assistance through both the Missouri District and federal government. As any of these efforts are finalized, the board will communicate to the congregation as soon as possible.

The Board of Elected Elders plans to check on all members soon through phone calls by all of Timothy’s elders. We look forward to learning how the church can help our members, their families, their friends or neighbors.

A New Face in the Office 

Many thanks to Caryn Barbee for over four years of service in Timothy’s Member Services. It is often said that an organization is really “run” by those who answer the phones, meet the public, schedule meetings, complete necessary paperwork of all kinds, and know every detail that makes it “click.” This certainly describes Caryn, and Timothy wishes her the best in all future endeavors.

Timothy is pleased to welcome Sandy Gregory as the new Member Services support staff, effective Monday, April 6. Sandy is a KC-area native, life-long Lutheran, and a member of Timothy for over 30 years. Over the years she has served Timothy as an assistant teacher when TLS was housed in the Hansel Lowe building at 16th & Vesper, substitute teacher in ECC, and Midweek School (now known as Cross Walk) & VBS helper. She was trained as a Stephen Minister approximately 10 years ago. She fondly remembers participating in Bible studies and serving in a drama capacity during Lenten services under Pastor Ted’s tutelage.

Starting Monday, April 6, the RD Mize office will be open from 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday through Friday. While we regret you may not be able to greet and welcome her in person for a while, we hope you will lend assistance in your familiar ministry areas when you call or email. Sandy’s email address will be sandyg@timothylutheran.com. Thank you, and Welcome Aboard, Sandy! May God bless your service at Timothy!

Timothy Lutheran School’s HERO

In an organization of many moving parts, there is usually a key person who wears multiple hats and supports everyone. For Timothy Lutheran School, that person is Kristen Anderson, the TLS Hero of the Week.

It would not be unusual for someone to become overwhelmed with the many duties that Ms. Anderson, the TLS Administrative Assistant, handles on a regular basis. She does everything with endless grace. Her passion to serve God, our church, and our school is fierce. Given that my office is adjacent to Ms. Anderson’s front desk, I often see and hear her greeting people, helping students, answering phones, completing daily paperwork, and maintaining the needs of many. She is consistently kind and helpful. As the ultimate ambassador of Timothy Lutheran School, she truly finds joy in helping others and exemplifies our school mission, “Joy Fully Lutheran,” daily.

Ms. Anderson is highly respected and appreciated by the Timothy Lutheran Staff. “Kristen is the glue that holds our ministry together. She has a huge heart, sharing love and grace with Timothy’s staff, students, and families. She knows and loves all the students, providing comfort when students are injured or not feeling well. Her easy smiles and laughter add joy to our days. Kristen has been challenged with a heavy and changing workload but embraces the challenges with a servant heart.” “Kristen is a very helpful and knowledgeable person and loves to be of service to others. She has a strong faith, loves the Lord, and is a witness to those around her.” “Kristen has been flexible in assisting wherever we . . . need help.” “She cares immensely about our school, its families, staff and children. . . . Her listening ear and helpful suggestions make her a wonderful friend.”

Psalm 100:1-3 says, Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Ms. Anderson approaches each day with joy and shares that joy with all. Even as we face new changes and challenges of these unusual times, she carries on with a joyful heart and “can do” attitude that motivates those around her.

Should you visit our school, be sure to greet Ms. Anderson and say, “thank you.” She is a vital member of our team. Thank you, Ms. Anderson. You truly are a Timothy Lutheran School Hero!

In His Service,
Ken Holland
Principal—Timothy Lutheran School

Good From Evil

Rev. Dr. R. Lee Hagan, President LCMS-Missouri District

As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. Genesis 50:20

Perhaps you have also wondered, “Can anything good come from the internet?”  It has always proven to be a ceaseless cesspool of filth and hatred that never ceases to surprise eyes by revealing another level of the depravity of humankind.  But last Sunday, thousands upon thousands of the saints of God gathered around computer screens and tablets and all other manner of devices to hear the Word of God as it was preached, prayed, and sung.

Joseph had been sold into slavery and eventually thrown into prison all on account of the jealousy of his brothers.  But all of that took place so that God might lead Joseph to be able to serve Pharaoh for the good of the Egyptians and his own family during the widespread famine.  As Joseph speaks the word of absolution to his brothers, there is also the recognition that God meant to bring good from evil.  The patriarchs, the disciples, Jesus’ own genealogy all reveal how God specializes in bringing good from evil.  He has been doing that through each and every one of us and from all of our sinful ancestors who have gone before us.

Older members from my vicarage congregation would often reference one of their sainted pastors, Rev. Edward Stammel.  Pastor Stammel would often speak about life being like a tapestry though this side of heaven all we see is that random chaos of knots and strings going in different directions without any particular rhyme or reason.  But when we reach the new heavens and the earth, we will be able to see how God was at work through the chaos as He was accomplishing the good that He intended to bring.  During the hard days which we are currently facing, we can find solace that God can and does bring good from evil.  Now is the time for the Church to recognize that we are not simply a building, but those have been called by God and sent to love and serve our neighbors.  Even in this time of a global pandemic, God is working good as His Word fills Facebook and the Internet through Pastor’s sermons and daily devotions and Bible studies.  God is working good as Christians serve in their unique callings and by telling of Christ’s love.  God is working as families are slowed down from all of their activities and parents step forward to teach their children about Christ’s love in the home.  If the only good you thought could come from the internet were funny dog videos and cat memes, you’re wrong.  God is using the internet for good that many people should live eternally through faith in Christ Jesus!

Prayer – Almighty God, our heavenly Father, Your mercies are new every morning; and though we deserve only punishment, You receive us as Your children and provide for all our needs of body and soul. Grant that we may heartily acknowledge Your merciful goodness, give thanks for all Your benefits, and serve You in willing obedience; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.

Fraternally in Christ,
President Lee Hagan

Join this awesome opportunity as the students explore the Good Samaritan and learn how God desires we all help our neighbor!

Timothy’s Powerful Prayer Chain 

Talking to God in prayer brings us closer to Him and to each other. Its power is far-reaching in all circumstances, whether we praise and adore His Holy Name, seek His guidance, ask for His presence in our lives, submit specific joys and concerns, or just plain talk to Him.

Timothy’s Prayer Chain reaches many people every week. Are you one of the 142 people receiving prayer requests from Gloria Cundiff, Timothy’s Prayer Chain leader for the past 38 years? Do you know how simple it is to participate? Have you ever noticed the weekly bulletin message of how many prayers were lifted to God through Timothy’s Prayer Chain during the previous week? If you or anyone in your family has ever requested a prayer “go through” Timothy’s Prayer Chain, you have felt the love of God and your fellow Timothy family.

Timothy’s Prayer Chain has a rich history! Stay tuned until Timothy’s next eNotes issue to find out about it. In the meantime, let’s expand the Prayer Chain to be congregation-wide! Contact Gloria Cundiff (mgcundiff2@att.net) today to join this ministry. God’s blessings on all of your prayers, for we all know the Power of Prayer!

Timothy Lutheran School’s HERO

This week, we are blessed to honor Becky Barnett as our Timothy Lutheran School Hero. She has been a part of the Timothy Lutheran School family in many capacities, and we benefit greatly from her knowledge and expertise of more than 40 years in her teaching career. In addition to holding titles of “Greatest Chiefs Fan,” “Concession Stand Guru” and “Recycling Queen,” Mrs. Barnett is the middle school math and science teacher at TLS.

Always willing to volunteer her time outside the classroom, Mrs. Barnett’s generous servant heart extends to the leadership teams of Timothy’s Coffee & Donut Ministry and Timmy Burger Red-Shirt Ministry.

Mrs. Barnett’s colleagues truly appreciate her. “I love her sense of humor; her loud, boisterous laugh; and her love for teaching. She is a joy to be around. Always.” “She is such an amazing part of our team.” “She is wonderful at explaining math and makes sure the students really understand it before moving on to the next concept.” “She works hard to prepare her students for future grades!”

Mrs. Barnett is known to give her students every chance possible to succeed. They recognize this as evidenced in these comments: “She is amazing at math. She knows everything about it.” “I love her laugh.” “She makes learning fun.”

As a principal, I appreciate that Mrs. Barnett is always ready to take on a challenge. She approaches new situations with a positive attitude, supporting her colleagues through just about anything. Fellow teachers commented that, “Becky is fearless. Even if she is approaching a new task, she always says, ‘We will figure it out.’” “Becky has been a ROCK STAR with this whole remote teaching/teaching online stuff during this health crisis. She sets up a video class every day and has been talking one-on-one with the kiddos. She is amazing, and this shows her love for our kids and for our Lord immensely.”

Mrs. Barnett has announced that she is stepping away as a teacher at TLS at the end of this school year. We are sad to see her leave and know that our TLS Family will not be the same without her. She fills our halls with laughter, ensures high levels of learning, keeps us updated on the latest Chiefs stats and frequently volunteers to support the many TLS activities. When I turn to scripture, this passage speaks to her nature: God is not unjust; He will not forget your work and the love you have shown Him as you have helped His people and continue to help them. Hebrews 6:10

Thank you, Mrs. Barnett, for your years of service, your generous heart and the gifts you have shared with us. May you be blessed in all your endeavors. You are a Timothy Hero!

In His Service,
Ken Holland
Principal, Timothy Lutheran School

Next Generation Congregational Study

The congregational survey deadline has been extended until a week after normal church services resume. This is EVERYONEs opportunity to share thoughts about Timothy’s future. Thank you to the 206 Timothy members for submitting their surveys so far.

You can access this survey online at https://surveymonkey.com/r/Y79RF5V or using the QR code below. Printed copies can be picked up at the Information Centers when the church is open. Completed printed copes should be placed in the drop box at the Information Centers.

Pastor John’s January letter to the congregation stated leadership’s belief that consolidation at the Wyatt Road site is the best option. That was the strategic conclusion reached in 2013 in the congregation-wide 2020 Vision process. That being said, it is important to assure you that NO DECISION has been made. This decision is critical to the future, and the thoughts of every member are important. Thanks for your input!
