Vol. 4 No. 25 June 28, 2018
The purpose of Ministry Matters is to provide an opportunity for the leaders of Timothy to share what is happening in their ministry areas. Each Friday, Ministry Matters is emailed to Timothy’s executive board, elders, staff, commission leaders and other lay leaders. If you wish to include something, please email it to Diane Mayfield (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 8am Thursday. Feel free to share this document as you wish.
PLEASE NOTE: Ministry Matters is emailed one day early this week only, due to no internet service at Timothy on June 29.
