A NOTE FROM PASTOR WOOD: 125 YEARS
One hundred and twenty-five years. That is a long time. The origins of Concordia Lutheran Church are beyond living memory. Over these 125 years the lives of tens of thousands individuals have been touched though God working in this congregation. Much sorrow and much joy has been experienced here since September 7th, 1892 when a handful of families met with Pastor Schuessler and the Mission at Benton Station formally organized into the Concordia Lutheran Church. During the ministry of Concordia America has fought in over a half dozen wars and military conflicts. The first of which was the Spanish-American War in 1898. Concordia proclaimed the Gospel into the roaring 20s and through the great depression. Through the baby boom of the 40s and 50s and the sexual revolution of the 60s Concordia proclaimed the Good News of Jesus Christ. Through the church conflict of the 70s and to the end of the Cold War that fell with the wall in 1989 Concordia proclaimed Jesus Christ crucified and risen. Into the digital age of the 90s and the new millennium voices have been lifted, water and Word have been united, Body and Blood has come from heaven under bread and wine. Sins have been forgiven. Eternity has been guaranteed at the throne of heaven...Continue Reading

Noah Away Today
This morning Noah Comfort Dog is visiting Grace Lutheran Chapel in Bellefontaine Neighbors (North St. Louis County). Glenn Nielsen regularly preaches and teaches at this congregation and has brought Noah with him a number of times. The members of the congregation love having Noah visit. Today, however, he has been invited to a luncheon after the late service for the senior adult group so he's there on an official visit.

Thank You from the Nielsen Family
Matthew, our son, brother and uncle, died suddenly on Sept. 6th.  The days following have been difficult, as we were hit with grief and other emotions with an intensity that we did not know was possible. Yet in the midst of our sorrow, the people of Timothy surrounded us with support and prayers, encouragement and sympathy. You helped build us up when we were torn down, and did so with hugs, words, facial expressions, and simply your presence. Your prayers were appreciated and answered as we traveled this hard road. Thank you so very much.
We at Timothy have wonderful pastors. Pastor Bill was there with Sue, Holly, Tim, and Katie at his death, and in the days following he led us through the many decisions that needed to be made for Matthew's viewing, visitation and funeral service. Pastor Rall visited in our home, prayed with us and was present during these challenging times. They are amazing shepherds and we thank God for them -- and for our church family here at Timothy.
Glenn and Sue, Holly and Jason with Lana and Grayson, Tim and Katie, and Beth and Alex.  

Thanks
Thank You from the Picnic Team
Thanks to everyone who helped Katy and I have a Great Picnic last Sunday.  We had great weather, wonderful worship with music from Maranatha and fellowship time with one another renewing friendships. 
Special thanks to our servers, those who helped set up and take down, to John Hagan for providing a truck to transport tables and chairs.  Thanks to our servers: Deb Lowe, Constansa Herrmann, Irma Herrmann, Bri and Matt Gerzevske, Shirley Weir, Lilly Roden, Sue Thomas, Shirley Jeude, Jane Cauchon, Gina Hawkins, Cheryl O'Neill and Ted Wuerffel.  Thanks to our set up and take down team: Tim O'Neill, Vicar Loum, Rudy Bertarelli, Rick Myers, Jim Rice, Field Worker Danny and John Hagan.
Thanks to all who contributed funds, food for our meal and dessert donations for the Cake Walk.  Thanks to Bri and Matt Gerzevske for hosting the Cake Walk, to Mary Ann Rall for shopping for the picnic.  The pulled chicken was catered from The Stellar Hog, who also donated the baked beans.  It was great to see so many enjoying fellowship with one another, people enjoying the Cake Walk and children playing on the playground.  I thank our Father in Heaven for our TLC Family!
Would you like to help plan the picnic for next year??  Please see me!

SUNDAY SCHOOL NEWS
Parent Sunday School Connection for week of September 24
Lesson 4 Bible Story -Elijah and the Prophets of Baal - 1 Kings 18:20-46
This week in Sunday School
"Elijah and the Prophets of Baal" serves as the lesson focus for Sunday School. Just as the true God revealed Himself on the altar of Mount Carmel, so on the cross-shaped altar of Mount Calvary Jesus revealed, once and for all, that He alone is the real God who loves us enough to die for us. Parents could ask, "How did God demonstrate His power on Mount Carmel? How does God reveal Himself to us?"
Memory Verse: The Lord has made know His salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. Psalm 98:2

STEWARDSHIP
Hurricane Harvey
Lutheran Foundation Matching Funds for Hurricane Harvey Relief:
Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis' Board of Directors recognizes the efforts of Lutheran congregations in rapidly responding to this tragedy.  In recognition of this, the Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis will match dollar-for-dollar the cash donations raised by St. Louis area Lutheran congregations of up to $400,000 ($10,000 per congregation) to approved organizations.
As a congregation, Timothy has selected to support the LCMS Texas District Disaster Relief Fund, which has been established to support the 100+ congregations, church workers, congregants, and community members from Corpus Christi to Beaumont, Texas that have been affected by this disaster.  100% of the funds received will be used to assist in disaster relief efforts.
To donate: make a check payable to: "Texas District, LCMS" and indicate in the memo line: "Hurricane Harvey Relief."  Please give your check to the church office, or put in the offering plate.  In order to qualify for the match, all funds must be received by October 1st, 2017.
 
Trivent
You can make a personal donation on Thrivent.com to provide assistance to Texas hurricane victims. When you do, Thrivent will double the impact - up to $500,000.
This opportunity will run until the $500,000 match is met or until December 31, 2017, whichever comes first.
 
Any donations given to Timothy will be given to the Comfort Dog Ministry!
