This Fellowship

On Sunday, we will be talking about how fellowship is so essential. It helps define what the church is really all about. The church is a community doing life together as we can grow into the people that God has called us to be. We will need this fellowship more than ever in the days ahead.

We are all mourning the loss of Tim Willcox in different ways. For four years, Tim was our beloved pastor and friend here at Killearn. So many people are in shock that Tim even got sick and lost his fight with COVID in such a short time. In moments like this one, we definitely need this Christi-centered fellowship so very much.

At the dawn of creation, God quickly realized that it was not good for human beings to be alone. We need each other. In the days ahead, we need to be vulnerable and share our grief. We need to share how much we love Tim. We need to share stories about Tim.

Tim was actually a huge help to me when I was wrestling with my future in campus ministry. He shared about what God was doing in his life and humbly offered some great wisdom that was so useful to me. Tim was one of the first people that invited me to pray about the possibility of serving here at Killearn. I am so very glad that God used Tim to speak into my life.

This Sunday morning will be a holy moment to worship God and to remember and celebrate Tim’s life together. I hope you will set aside time to be together in worship in the sanctuary or online. I believe that we are not capable or designed to shoulder our burdens alone. We are definitely better together.

If you need to talk, I am here for you. Call or text me anytime. My cell is 850-544-7087. Hope to see you or connect with you online this Sunday.

In His Grip,
Mike Toluba

Tim touched many lives. He encouraged me to apply for the position I am in now and I will always be grateful for his mentorship. I know he is cutting up in heaven and making the angels laugh!

Tim was a great guy. I miss him dearly. I have been thinking a lot about Tim's passion for small groups and how is legacy of leadership around discipleship groups lives on at Killearn. Thank you Sheri for your continued leadership around discipleship and spiritual formation!
