Update on Call Process
Pastor Braun Campbell has returned our call to serve as Lead Pastor, primarily for family reasons.  He will continue to pray for Timothy and its ministry.  The Call Committee will meet in the next two weeks to strategize on the next steps.  Although disappointed, we must remember that the Lord has His plan for Timothy and we need to continue with "sanctified common sense."

Concordia Call Day
Call Day at Concordia Seminary is the day when second year students learn their vicarage church assignments (a one-year internship at an LCMS church anywhere in the U.S.) and fourth year students learn their first call assignments. Deaconess students learn their deaconess internship assignments or diaconal call assignments on this day as well. These assignments are announced and celebrated during two worship services on Call Day.  Assignment of Vicarages & Internships April 24, 2018 at 3 p.m., Assignment of Calls April 24, 2018 at 7 p.m.
