Dear Timberwood Church Family,
Happy Tuesday. We want to thank you for being faithful to the cause of Christ. We want to keep you informed.
We will continue to host our Wednesday and Sunday services online. Thank you for your financial support through online giving and rediscovery of the postal service.
Here are the three places that you can find video and audio resources.
With respect to Sunday services:
• On Timberwood Facebook, you must have a Facebook account to live stream the 9am service. Additionally, you can view a recorded version of the service at 10:30am or later.
• On the Timberwood Church YouTube Channel, you can stream the 9am service as well as view a recorded version at 10:30am or later. You can also find archived services.
Currently, on our website we have audio and video capability so you can listen to the Sunday morning service after 10:30. Additionally, you can find archived audio of previous messages. Timberwood Kids! Big God Story will continue to be aired during the 9am hour on the MCBI’s “The Word” 102.7 on your FM dial.
With respect to Wednesday services:
• Use Facebook or the Timberwood Church YouTube Channel for video of Wednesday evening teaching adults and Twood youth, available at 6:30pm.
• On our website you can find audio and video versions of the same services under the media tab.
As we look forward to the next couple of weeks, we will be having our normal communion service, the first Sunday of April. You will want to have your own supply of bread and juice. Please feel free to personalize your choice. Perhaps you might even make your own unleavened bread, or a tasty sourdough. Additionally, we are planning on holding our Maundy Thursday Service (April 9th at 7pm) as well as our Easter Service (April 12th at 9am), online.
For those of you who have students in grades 6-12, we have canceled the spring retreat scheduled for April 17-19th. Refunds will be made.
If you’ve become a member of Timberwood Church, you may remember this line from the “Getting to Know Timberwood Class: “Disciple making is happening when we live as a follower of Jesus, especially under stress.” To be sure, some of us feel very little stress right now. Others wonder, “what is the big deal.” One might think I am healthy and I have faith. But to be sure some of us feel a great deal of stress. And others wonder, how will I survive. Some of us know we are not healthy even though we have faith. And so we encourage all to live with a profound sense of how much the Father loves. And how the Holy Spirit encourages our souls. How our minds can be renewed even as creation groans. We encourage one another to press into Jesus and live as a follower.
To quote St Paul:
For this reason I bow on my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly that all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21
Amen and Amen.
Peace to your soul,
