As We Gather for Worship This Weekend:
Prayers of the Passion: Hosanna!

As we move into Holy Week, we see a prayer that was uttered by God’s people as Jesus rode into Jerusalem to meet His destiny. They called out to Him for help and salvation. We, too, add our voices to the cry of Hosanna! and ask Jesus to save us now as well.

God Hears Our Voice

In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. Psalm 5:3
There is something powerful about starting our day with our hearts and minds fixed on Jesus. Whether you wake up before the sun ascends from the horizon or when it’s high in the sky. Whether you wake up perky and cheerful or groggy and grumpy, we get to choose the first thing we will do.
In Psalm 5, David declares with confidence that God hears his voice. We can have the same confidence. We can trust that whether we whisper or weep or shout or praise, God hears us.
So let’s follow the psalmist’s lead today and speak to the Lord. Let’s tell God what we need and wait expectantly for Him to answer.

Attention: Coffee Connoisseurs

When worshippers come to church on April 16th & 23rd, they will be invited to stop by a table in the lobby (both campuses, plus Donut & Coffee area in FLC at RD Mize) to try various flavors of coffee from the Giving Bean Coffee Company!

The TLS Parent-Teacher League (PTL) will take orders for coffee beans, ground coffee, or pods on these two Sundays as a fundraiser for purchasing student needs, such as sports uniforms for the school’s sports teams next year. Cost is $16 per bag, and only paper order forms are available (no online ordering) with cash or checks payable to PTL (no PayPal, debit cards, etc). A total order will be placed on April 24th, with delivery back to Timothy within 1-2 weeks. Purchasers will be notified when and where to pick up their coffee following arrival. Thank you for supporting this fundraiser!

Joining Jesus | He’s Calling!
So how is Jesus messing with you? What is He inviting you to notice, believe, or wrestle with? What is He inviting you to do?
The truth is Jesus is already on the loose all over the place, bringing hope, offering peace, restoring the broken. And He has invited us to JOIN Him in this life-changing work. That is what it means to be followers of Jesus. But that can feel rather intimidating and leave us wondering how.
This year our ministry focus at Timothy involves walking together as we learn how to JOIN JESUS ON HIS MISSION every day. We start this journey by diving into a book written by Pastor Greg Finke called Joining Jesus on His Mission. The leadership at Timothy has already begun, and now we are inviting you to join us. Come and meet the author! We have an incredible opportunity to spend some time with Pastor Finke on Saturday, April 29th to offer us encouragement and hope that we really can be a part of what Jesus is doing in our neighborhood and community. Together, we can make an eternal difference, and it isn’t as difficult you might think.
Timothy and other local Lutheran churches will collectively host Pastor Greg Finke at Point of Hope Lutheran Church on April 29th 9 am-noon, where we will join with our brothers and sisters in Christ throughout the Kansas City area to grow in our calling to be everyday missionaries in all the places we already are. We strongly encourage you to join us! Register today at . We can’t wait to spend this time with you and see how God will use it. If you have any questions, contact Pastor Ryan @
Join us for our Joining Jesus Event!

It will be held in the Agape Pamoja event center in KC. There will be loud music and highly energetic kiddos, much like Timothy VBS openings and closings. Volunteers will sit on the floor and engage with the kiddos during games and in small groups. Typically, 80+ kiddos attend this event. If you enjoy seeing kids have fun while learning about God, sign up for this event!

The Executive Board thanks Timothy for its input and participation in these important decisions. Questions and discussions do not stop now; in fact, they are only just beginning. Leadership wants to follow up with all our brothers and sisters but especially those who may still be uneasy about the vote results. We do desire to have a sense of unity among all our church family even if we don’t always agree on decisions or directions. We also care for those who feel their voice may not be heard or that their concerns have been ignored. While we will move forward on the decisions made at the meeting Sunday, we also want to hear questions about the process that concern you. And we are also open to hearing about what you think may help support and offer encouragement to members who may still be uneasy about all of this. If you would like to share, please go to, click on Church, and then Next Generation to complete the Q & A opportunity still on the website. We will try to reply promptly, but please be patient. We look forward to seeing what God will do in and through us as His church as we continue to love Him and love each other.
