A Pastoral Message

Dear Beloved of God,

You may feel a mounting pressure to do more, maybe be more during this busy season. This is not of God. You are enough just as you are. 

Good News: 

God does not want you to try harder; He wants you to trust Him deeper. Stop trying. Start trusting. This will change everything, in you.

I can make Holy Week a stressful time of striving. This year, the staff and I are giving ourselves permission to strive and stress less over all the bulletins, etc. and rest more in God’s grace. What matters more than anything this Easter? Our trusting and receiving His grace is sufficient for all our needs. 

What would it look like to make the Holy Week journey: Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday - through the lense of grace?  

My hope and prayer is for more freedom, less stress and pressure and perfectionism and more trust and rest in God’s love and grace for you and me. ❤️

With love and hope,


Pastor Robin+

Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Please help with donations of bags of candy, (preferably not chocolate - it melts!). Look for the red buckets in the hallway. We received a generous large donation of eggs, so we don't need more.

We need volunteers to help set up Saturday morning starting at 8:30 and to help during the hunt. Look for sign-up sheets in the front hallway.

Donating Easter Lilies

You will find an envelope in this Sunday’s bulletin which may be familiar to all of you who have been at St. Timothy’s through Christmas or Easter past. Your memories and/or thanksgivings are listed in the bulletin for Easter, and your donations help with the cost of our wonderful music and decorations. This year’s deadline is Sunday, March 24th, for your request to be listed in the bulletin. Please put envelopes in the offering plate or bring them to the church office.


Prison Ministry Prayer Chain

We are looking for Prayer Warriors to pray for our Kairos #30 weekend. It will be held on April 4th through the 7th.

Paper chain strips are in the Narthex of the church. Add your favorite Bible verse or a message and sign your FIRST NAME in the middle section of the strip and say a prayer for our weekend at Clemens Prison.

We have other churches in the area doing the same. We will present the chain on the second day of the four day weekend.

This KAIROS WEEKEND is a prison ministry similar to Cursillo or Walk to Emmaus in the free world. It is life changing for the participants and for the volunteers.

Lent Resources

Lenten Series: Luke 10 T on Wednesday Nights Beginning 2/21

How do we live out being disciples of Jesus Christ? If you are like most of us in this week’s Luke 10-T class, you may fear it means telling people about Jesus. The good news of the training is it busts this myth wide open. The reality is many of us will never be presented with the opportunity to lead someone to Christ. However, we very likely will either draw people toward Jesus and desiring to follow him or turn them away.  

What if our task as followers of Jesus Christ were to make sure people around us knew God loves them through our actions more than our words? We get to show this love and care with authenticity.

A clarifying moment in this week’s class was when Angela asked us which of these four steps do you think need to be done as a disciple and in what order. Most of us thought the order to do the four steps of discipleship was 1. Tell others about Jesus. 2. Meet People’s Needs, 3. Build Relationships, and 4. Bless People. We gathered with those who were most comfortable in Blessing or Meeting Peoples' Needs. When asked what were we least comfortable with doing? The most common answer was: Telling others about Jesus, alongside building relationships. The fact is only 4% of us are gifted with the spiritual gift of evangelism. So how do we as part of the 96% believers do our part? We start with what we can do and do it in a way that fits your personality. 

Imagine our surprise when we learned the way to attract others to Jesus is to NOT tell them you are a Christian. Rather to show them. This means we start with praying silently and listening for needs first and foremost. Maybe you can join us by beginning with practicing step 1 during Lent.
