Making an Impact

CREATIVE TENSION: As we approach our Impact Sunday, we remember what an impact giving can have. Obviously, it has an impact on the church, but more than that, it’s a way for us to make an impact in other people’s lives because what is given can help facilitate transforming lives through Christ. But giving also has an impact on us as well, helping us to rely on God and trust Him to continue making an impact in us.

God Shows Up in Every Moment:  A Devotion

Okay, here’s what I need to know:  “What do I do when it feels like one partner in a relationship isn’t meeting my expectations, but He hasn’t done anything wrong?”   For the record, I am not talking about my husband, but looking at my relationship with Jesus and His partnership with Timothy Church and our current struggles.

Psalm 117:2 says, “For His lovingkindness is great toward us, and the truth of the Lord is everlasting.”

God’s love for us is neither passive nor shallow. That word, “lovingkindness,” is committed and an eternal love. While Jesus brings perfect love and kindness and mercy to the table, He’s also doing it knowing we’re broken humans who get fussy and frustrated. Jesus isn’t shocked watching us not trust Him. Rather, He shows up, moment after moment, ready to keep moving forward with us to the very end.

There are days we need to walk in faith that God really is close and He really is for our good. But when we reflect on how He has carried us and we see the ways His character is revealed, we can trust He’s here to stay. And we can respond with a life of service and sacrifice.

Cookie Walk

The youth attending the 2022 National Youth Gathering will host a Cookie Walk on Saturday, Dec. 4, from 10am-1pm in the Family Life Center at RD Mize. More details about the walk will be shared soon, but we need your help for a successful Cookie Walk. Simply put, we need cookies!

If you can make a large patch of cookies to donate to the walk, please call the church office.  Please drop off all cookies at the RD Mize church office by Friday, Dec. 3rd. Please contact Pastor John ( with questions.

Ministry Fair at Wyatt

Thank you to those who gathered in the RD Mize lobby last week to connect with Timothy ministries, fellowship with each other, and assemble kits of essential items for the homeless. The same opportunity will occur at Wyatt this coming Sunday.  Please take the kit with you to keep in your car so it’s handy when you encounter someone in the community who would appreciate these items.

Veterans’ Day Program

Timothy Lutheran School hosted its annual Veterans Day celebration on Thursday November 11th.  We had a packed gym of our students along with families and veterans from all 5 branches of the military service in attendance.  We appreciated singing, music, prayers, and moments of reflection. Our youth made cards, posters, and banners which provided the décor for the event.  We are thankful for Timothy Lutheran School which teaches the Gospel so richly but also acknowledges what it means to be a good citizen and honor those who have served our country.
