As We Gather for Worship This Weekend
“Joining Jesus: The Where”

When we think of the Church’s mission, we often think of it as being something that has to happen “over there” (wherever that is). But God actually calls us to do missions right in our own backyard. He calls us to reach out to the people we know across the backyard fence or in the apartment next door. We are sent, not overseas, not to strangers, but to our family and friends.

When Prayer Gets Personal

I traveled to a big family event this past weekend. There was a lot of laughter, dancing, and fun, but during the weekend, my niece, Hannah, shared her faith story which included the prayer for a baby. Through much pain, struggle and surgery, she is due in August, anticipating a baby boy.

When we invite Jesus into every detail of our lives, prayer can get personal. Jesus invites us into a life of prayerful adventure — one where we walk with Him, like a child on a hike with their father, asking questions, and listening to His gentle guidance. 

Jesus made bold promises to His disciples about prayer: “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer” (Matthew 21:22). Jesus lived a life of personal prayer. He would’ve talked to His Father about everything — from turning water into wine to asking God to consider preventing the suffering Jesus would endure on the cross. There was nothing off-limits between Jesus and His Father. 

There’s nothing off-limits when it comes to us and God either. Prayer isn’t meant to be boring, but personal. Tell Jesus everything. We can ask Him to give us a life of prayerful adventure. Then just watch as our prayer life starts to get personal.

Next Generation Update 

Discussions continue with interested buyers for the RD Mize campus. In addition, Timothy’s Real Estate Task Force met last Sunday to begin forming next steps to list the RD Mize Campus. Thanks to Bill Ekey, Corey Koenig, Gary Storck, and Gary Flandermeyer for serving on this team. If anyone from the congregation would like to serve on this team and/or has input regarding the listing process or plans, please contact Chair Bill Ekey ( or Diane Mayfield ( 

The congregation is invited to stop by the “free table” in the lobby at RD Mize to pick up usable items from storage areas that will not be stored elsewhere, moved, or discarded. As additional storage areas are cleaned, sorted, and organized over the upcoming weeks, there will be more opportunities for free items.  Contact the church office with questions. 
The congregation is also invited to visit the Adult Library (Room 303) and Children’s Library (Room 304) to select books or other materials they would like to own.
