Dear Tim: Continued...

Paul now shifts focus in his letter: from leaders of the church to the head shepherd of the church, Timothy himself. What things should a pastor care about the most when it comes to leading the church? And what role do those who attend play in seeing that get accomplished?


Sept 2 - Get to the Point, Already! - 1 Tim 4:6-10
Ever sit through a very long (and boring!) sermon? Besides every week, you’re thinking! And you just wish the pastor would get to the point? That’s actually what Paul tells Timothy a good pastor does, but be careful: you might not like the point at all.


Sept 9 - Act Your Age - 1 Tim 4:11-16
Timothy had a problem that no matter how hard he tried, he alone couldn’t fix: his age. Some in the Ephesian church looked down on Timothy because of how young he was. So what does a young pastor do when people disregard him for his age? Simple, do five simply complex things and it will solve everything! (Not really, but still…)


Sept 16 - The Company You Keep - 1 Tim 5:1-2
Pastors are called to interact with people of all ages, from newborns to...everything else. Every age group expects something from the pastor, but Paul warns Timothy of how he needs to treat everyone of every age that he comes into contact with. A pastor doesn’t just leave an impact, he leaves a legacy.


Sept 23 - Family First - 1 Tim 5:3-10
Paul now makes it clear what responsibility the church has to widows, but not until he makes one thing known: family comes first. Who do you think should do the most for someone in need? The church? Or their own family? For the Christian, the answer is simple.


Sept 30 - 5th Sunday Celebration!
It’s time to celebrate! No Sunday School or Children's Church, and a carry in lunch to follow a fun worship time together. Who can you invite to this fun morning?
