Searching to Be Known:  A Devotion

So many of us feel lonely, especially during this time of isolation. And often at the core of the loneliness is the idea that we are not known by someone. Even if we are in a crowd of people or with a group of friends, we can still feel lonely. This is when Psalm 139 brings us comfort. You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. Psalm 139:1.

God knows our hearts and minds. He knows where we are and understands our restlessness to be somewhere else. He knows our thoughts, so that when we are without words, He still understands. God goes before us, is with us, and assures us of His presence.

Blessings,
Miriam Lindemann

Confirmand Faith Story

God’s blessings to Will Twenter, one of Timothy’s 2021 Confirmands, who shared his faith story this past Sunday, applying his chosen Bible verse of Psalm 46:10 to his journey of growing in Christ. Click on the arrow below to hear his story.

Children’s Ministry Update

FaithRoots continues to meet every Wednesday from 6:30-8pm in the 400’s (blue) hallway at RD Mize.

All children ages 3 through 5th grade are encouraged to participate in one of two large group openings (Pre-K in one group; K-5th in second group) for the age-appropriate introduction of the Bible lesson, followed by four smaller group gatherings for Pre-K, Kindergarten & 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-5th grades for further application of the Bible story.

Wondering how to get connected? It’s easy—just come to the FaithRoots hallway where you and your child will be greeted, signed in, and introduced to the teachers. Parents will pick up the students at their classrooms and take home the latest devotion booklet geared just for the kids.

We look forward to sharing the love of Jesus with all the children tomorrow evening. Bring friends!

Youth Ministry Update

Timothy’s youth in grades 6-12 will gather this Saturday, Jan. 23, from 4:15-6:30pm at Rink Ratz Skating Rink. To ensure proper social distancing, the entire facility is reserved for Timothy’s group, which includes 30 minutes of skating lessons from 4:15-4:45pm. Pizza will be provided, but skaters should bring their own drink. Cost is $5 per skater; bring your friends!

The congregation is reminded that this coming Sunday, Jan. 24, is Youth Sunday at Timothy. Students are working hard to share their time and talents in worship on this special day, such as Scripture readers, ushers, singers, musicians, thespians, and even sound techs!

Youth Ministry Fundraiser is this Sunday, Jan. 24, as well. Please stop by the table in the lobby at each campus to show your support of the youth raising funds to participate in the 2021 Youth Quake at the end of Feb. Contributions are tax-deductible since no goods are received for your donations. The youth will also appreciate donations of individually wrapped snacks, bottles of water, and cans/bottles of soft drinks. Thank you!
