St. Paul wrote to the Philippians giving thanks: “because of your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now” (Phil. 15). Such partnerships are truly gifts and blessings from God for which we should give thanks.

In 2010, Brothers and sisters in Christ from both Concordia and Timothy Lutheran Church have been working together to develop a partnership model and vision for working together to expand and strengthen our Gospel ministry in the neighborhoods that we serve. It may be summed up as:

Concordia/Timothy: A mission partnership in Christ, for the community, as the Church.

We still have much work to do to further develop this partnership model, but we are excited about the opportunities to reach out more effectively in ministry by working together. Everything we do must ultimately serve the mission task God has given us—namely, reaching people with the good news of Jesus Christ, incorporating them into the fellowship of believers at Concordia and Timothy, and helping them to grow as disciples of Jesus.

If you are looking for a church home, let this be your “first day” to partner with us in Christ.
