As We Gather for Worship This Weekend

As we join Jesus on His mission, it’s good for us to find encouragement. It can be challenging to share the hope that we have. Part of what we do as the body of Christ is to encourage one another. That’s part of what we do when we engage in the Take-10 Questions. But we also find encouragement when we listen to Christ, the Son whom God loves, and join Him where He is leading us.

Devotion: His Mercies Are New

As I drive down I-70, I am listening to the radio, but, really, I am not listening at all . . . because I am listening to the one thousand voices in my head going on and on about all the things that overwhelm me. The emails left unchecked and the pills I forgot to take. Every trivial matter spirals as I think about the people I’ve let down. The guilt comes uninvited.

I need the fresh reminder of God’s mercy right now; I need the reminder that His love knows no bounds. Right here in my car, with nothing mystical or magnificent happening, I feel God and His presence and the promise of His steadfast mercy.

Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

This passage of Scripture can carry us through. We can be assured of God’s unfailing love which is new every morning and carries us through every night. Though the weight of sin may feel oppressive, His mercies are new every morning, stretching wide and reaching deep to cover us for any reason at any time in any place.

Timothy Receives Letter of Intent to Purchase RD Mize Campus

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

To God be the Glory! For nearly fifteen years, Timothy has had a goal to consolidate to one campus. Through times of recession, COVID 19, and financial struggles, we’ve been faced with one question: “Is now the right time?” Over the past six months, God has made it evident that He is leading Timothy into a new chapter in the life of the church to gather together in transforming lives through Christ. It now appears that in God’s timing He is blessing Timothy’s transition to one campus and retaining the RD Mize campus to share the Good News of Jesus!

Yesterday afternoon (Sept. 5), Timothy’s leadership received a Letter of Intent to purchase the RD Mize Campus from Harvest Baptist Church at a fair market value of $3,250,000. Timothy’s Next Generation Real Estate Task Force and legal counsel are reviewing the letter to send a recommendation to the Executive Board. God is leading Timothy forward in our vision of one campus.

We understand that with change comes excitement, anxiety, and grief. We praise and thank God for his guidance throughout this process and ask for the congregation’s continued prayers as this journey moves forward.

Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

Putting our continued trust in God is the way forward. Let us set aside our anxieties, doubts, and fears, and turn it all over to Him.

To God Be the Glory! Amen

Serving Him,

Timothy’s Executive Board


A new sermon series following the five questions of Joining Jesus will start THIS SUNDAY, Sept. 10th. To stay intentional and consistent with a mission lifestyle, we also need a little help from our friends during the week. While we support each other by doing “Take-10” during family meals, in existing church groups, or with Jesus-following friends in our neighborhoods, workplaces, or schools, we also invite you to get together and intentionally experience Take-10 together from Tuesday, Sept.12 through Tuesday, Oct. 17.

In our gatherings on these Tuesday evenings, we will together discuss the Five Questions for reflection and conversation about how life on mission with Jesus is going and where it can lead the conversations, encouragement, insight, accountability, and practice we need to further develop our skills for Joining Jesus in everyday life.

Mark your calendars and plan to gather TOGETHER for this six-week opportunity as we encourage one another. You can contact Pastor Rod with any questions at

Timothy’s Mary Martha Circle Supports
KC Care Organization

As a summer service project, Timothy’s LWML Mary Martha Circle chose to assist Cornerstones of Care in Kansas City, an organization serving children and families who typically experience significant trauma with potential to affect their mental, physical, and behavioral health with long-term and life-altering consequences. They provide youth/family support, foster care/adoption, and education/training.

Sisters in the Mary Martha Circle purchased and delivered items of clothing for boys and young men, such as 150 pairs of socks, 55 pairs of boxer shorts/briefs, pajamas, shorts, shirts, & jeans (it seems they are sometimes slighted compared to shopping for girls!) as well as bath towels/wash cloths, sheets, laundry baskets, and games.

Pictured here are Mary Martha Circle Chair Donna Williams and Cornerstones of Care Manager Leah London. Donna reports it was a pleasure assisting these boys and young men as they concentrate on building brighter futures through the safety, schooling, treatment, and support services provided by Cornerstones of Care. What a perfect example of Joining Jesus on His Mission!
