As We Gather for Worship This Weekend
 “Prayers of the Saints: Hannah’s Prayer”

There are many examples of prayer throughout the Bible. In the first prayer we will look at, Hannah gives thanks to God for the way that He helped her during a time of need. She sees this as something that God does and praises Him for the way He levels the playing field, bringing about justice for those who need it.

For His Faithful Love to Us Is Great: A Devotion

Praise the Lord, all nations!
Glorify him, all peoples!
For his faithful love to us is great;
the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Psalm 117

January is a natural time for making goals and embracing fresh starts. But it’s also the perfect season for praise! A time to intentionally remember who God is and what He has done in our lives.
No matter how your 2022 ended or whether you’re dreading or delighting in the start of 2023, we can all answer the psalmist’s call to praise the Lord, to glorify Him, to raise a hallelujah! Praise primes our hearts to see God’s love, to see His fingerprints of faithfulness all over our lives.
Sometimes God’s love is like a flashing neon sign we can’t miss: the declaration of “cancer free,” a check in the mail exactly when we need it, a reconciled relationship we had totally written off. And sometimes His faithfulness is truly like a fingerprint whose smudge we would likely miss if we aren’t trained to look for it: an encouraging text from a friend, a parking spot in the rain, leftovers so you don’t have to cook dinner, a bird’s morning song.
Whether we categorize God’s kindness and care toward as “big” or “small,” the truth is that His faithful love to us is GREAT! And it will never end.

National Lutheran Schools Week at Timothy
“Making Disciples for Life”  January 23-27, 2023

National Lutherans Schools Week  – We look forward to a “Celebrating Timothy Lutheran School” video in worship at Wyatt on Jan. 22 and at RD Mize on Jan 29th. TLC students will sing in person in worship at RD Mize on Jan 22 and at Wyatt on Jan 29th. National Lutheran Schools Week provides more than 1,800 preschools, elementary schools and high schools with the public opportunity to proclaim and celebrate God’s work among us in schools of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. We thank God for the opportunity to provide excellent academic preparation for the children we serve. We are most grateful for the opportunity to share Jesus’ amazing love with children and their families.
National Lutheran Schools Week gives us an opportunity to proclaim these great blessings within the communities we serve. This week we look forward to celebrating with you with some fun and exciting events. Checkout Timothy Connects for all the details.
During the school days, they will enjoy a Bible Bee on Jan. 26, Grandparents’/Special Person’s Day and Talent Show on Jan. 27. Chapel will occur daily, and students will enjoy Spirit Days each day as well.


As we continue our theme of prayer at Timothy, we have an opportunity over the next two months to allow our students and teachers at Timothy Lutheran School to pray for us!

Check out the Prayer Wall in the lobby at each campus, grab a colorful piece of paper near the Prayer Wall, and write a prayer request that our kids can be in prayer with you. Then roll it up and place on the Prayer Wall. Pastor Ryan will distribute them to classrooms so can pray without ceasing together!
