A Note From the Staff
The celebration of Christmas, the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus, is a wonderful opportunity to give thanks for the wonder of God's gift and the amazing love He has shown in coming to be with us.  This Christmas is special for us in having all our own family home together.  At the same time, we rejoice in our Timothy family for all that you mean to us.  It is a blessing to be with you for this Christmas celebration, a blessing to partner in ministry with you, and we are surely blessed by your support and your love.  We pray that the peace and hope and joy of this season will continue to fill our lives in this coming new year ...In Christ's love, Pastor and Mary Anne
Thank you for your partnership this past year in ministry. The celebration of Christmas with all of you is always a true blessing for Brenda and me. We do have a great deal to be thankful for here at Timothy and with our partnership with Pastor Wood and Concordia.  We thank God for our staff, volunteers, members, visitors, school, Mother's Day Out and all who have entered our building this past year.  We have a great caring community of faith that reaches far beyond the walls of this Church. Brenda and I are so thankful to be part of this outreach to so many. Thanks to all of you for making 2017 a true blessing.  .  As you enter the New Year may the Lord be always with you. Have a blessed 2018! ...Pastor Bill and Brenda
"But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart." (Lk 2:9)  This is a good time of year to take a ponder.  As we reflect on many blessings, we see the people that God has connected in Christ as a real treasure.  Our connection to Timothy is a gift.  We treasure serving with you.  We treasure going through joys and challenges together.  We treasure our school and MDO.  We treasure the relationships where we share from life, hope and faith.  We treasure our church family and the place we have in this community.  May 2018 be another year of partnering in the Gospel and working for the Kingdom...all for Christ, the greatest treasure that changed our forever ...DCE Mark & Laura Thompson

Mission Trip to Gambia
Pastor Loum is going on a Medical Trip to Gambia in March, and is inviting interested members of the congregation to go along.  For more information please see Pastor Loum.

Gambia Mission
Some remote congregations in Gambia have been unable to hear the Word of God because the evangelists have been unable to travel to worship with them.  Support for this ministry would be $100.00/month.  If you should wish to help support this important ministry, mark your gift to Timothy with the word "Gambia".  Pastor John Loum.
