A Note From Pastor Bill: Remember the Lord Your God
In an article written about Thanksgiving, "Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  The entire day is spent savoring a delicious feast with family."  Or as one friend shared, "Thanksgiving is the day when I get to spend time with family and fill up on home cooked food."  At the grocery store a woman commented, "I'm so excited, I just can't wait for Thanksgiving. The entire family will be home."
Would you agree there's an extra level of emotion attached to Thanksgiving?  As we gather with family and friends, aren't we excited about being at the table together?  We feel a stronger bond with those around us.  There are more hugs, laughter and tears.  Our senses are on high alert.  Our stomachs growl like never before at the smell of food.  It's an emotional time.  
In a devotional by Henri Nouwen he wrote, "Only a sense of unworthiness can result in a profound (complete) thanksgiving."   A profound thanksgiving expressed in an emotional way but also evident in a change in behavior . .. Continue Reading

Cookie Sale!
It's that time again!!  As the weather has turned colder, why snowflake-cookies.jpg not turn on the oven and bake some cookies for our Cookie sale at the Christmas market!  We have sold out the last two years, so I know shoppers really appreciate home-baked treats.  If you bake early, simply freeze; cookies should be brought to church by Friday, 12/1.  Questions?  Call Cheryl O'Neill, 314-352-9309.
Advent by Candlelight just around the corner!
Signup sheets 
for Advent by Candlelight are in the narthex.  In case you're not familiar with this tradition, the event is for the women of Timothy (scho
ol age and into retirement!).  On Sunday, December 3rd, the first Sunday of Advent, we will meet in the gym at 6:00 p.m. for dessert and a short devotional program.  In the past, we have had women host tables of eight.  The hostess brings her fancy Christmas dishes and decorates with items from home and, of course, candles!  She also makes a dessert and provides a small, inexpensive memento (a bookmark, ornament or the like). This year, you will still be able to host a table, but we will also have many open tables which volunteers will "dress up"; we will also provide the dishes, dessert and favor. The signup sheet will have "OPEN" instead of a hostess' name. We will sing a few Christmas carols, enjoy a yummy dessert and hear a presentation by Noks Shabalala, a graduate student from South Africa studying at Concordia Seminary. We'll share more of Nok's topic in the next couple of weeks, but we wanted to be sure that you would put December 3rd on your calendars!  Hope to see you then!  Questions?  Please contact Jennifer Ebeling or Mary Anne Rall.

Parent Sunday School Connection for week of November 19
Lesson 12 Bible Story - God's People Go Home - Ezra 1:3;7:11-28; Nehemiah 2:1-8;12:27-43
"God's People Go Home" is the focus for this week's Sunday School lesson. God used unbelieving kings to restore His exiled people to Jerusalem according to His will. God sent Jesus, the King of kings, to Jerusalem to restore His wayward people to Himself forever. As a family, discuss, "What preparations did the people need to make before they returned to Jerusalem? How can you prepare for worship each week?"
Memory Verse:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
Thank You Steve Meyer Event - TODAY Nov. 19 at The Stellar Hog
As you likely have heard, Steve Meyer has stepped away from a volunteer leadership position in our Sr. Youth ministry after 10 years.  A few weeks ago we presented Steve with a framed photo highlighting the impact of his ministry with statements of appreciation by those touched by his service.  We have also planned another appreciate event for Sunday, November 19.  We invite current and former youth, their families, youth team members past and present, church leaders and anyone else to join us for food and fellowship.  The event will take place at the Stellar Hog (5623 Leona St, 63116) from 3:00-6:00 p.m.  Visit, share, retell, thank, laugh, smile and appreciate a decade of serving teens on youth gatherings, servant events, Bible classes, farm days, and more!
Rall's Phone Numbers
The Ralls will be getting rid of their home phone (314-781-2177).  If you need to get in touch with Pastor Rall, please use his cell phone (314-443-6659) or Mary Anne's cell phone (314-487-7177).  Thank you.
