Hidden Figures
So, we’re starting a new sermon series today: Hidden Figures. I can’t think of a better day than to start this particular series on Mother’s Day. There are some great Mothers Day cards out there. But I’m betting that your handwritten note inside the card or your call or your special plans for mom will be the thing that she’ll cherish the most. The truth is, every card sent this year; every call made; every special outing or plan will have one thing in common – they will be unable to adequately communicate the words that need to be said to and about Mom - the ultimate "Hidden Figure." Welcome to Stones Hill Online - Corona-virus Edition!

We welcome you to Stone's Hill today!

A typical Stone's Hill service has music (feel free to sing out); some announcements (things that are upcoming that you can be a part of); a message out of the Bible (God speaks to us through his Word); and an opportunity for you to respond to the message (either immediately in the case of a decision that needs to be made OR in the future as you live out the message in your life.)

So relax and enjoy your morning! We're so glad you are here!

Hidden Figures (Mothers Day)

PowerPoint Slides
Hidden Figures - Happy Mothers Day!
Hidden Figure? There are hidden figures tucked away everywhere doing work: marriage, single parenting, mothering, fathering, grandparenting, and mentoring…

Marriage: Eunice mismatched in her marriage.

Single Parent: Eunice was a single parent but she had a support system: a mom and a Mentor!

Mother: Eunice embraced her calling to mother.

Father: Timothy had a spiritual father in Paul.

Grandparent: Lois grand-parented well.

Special words for the introverted “Timothy’s”:
Timothy was still young and to a large extent inexperienced. Paul wants to motivate him. In 1 Timothy Paul told the young disciple to allow no one to look down on his youth (4:12). And in 2 Timothy, he is told to “Flee the evil desires of youth” (2:22). He had a weak constitution. He had frequent ailments and a weak stomach (cf. 1 Timothy 5:23). He was timid by nature. He was naturally shy—what today we would call an introvert. On one occasion Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “If Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is carrying on the work of the Lord, just as I am. No one, then, should refuse to accept him” (1 Corinthians 16:10, 11a). If you sense that God is calling you to do something far beyond your natural capabilities, you can take heart from Timothy’s life. In truth, God always calls us to minister beyond our natural endowments, no matter how great they are.

Was Timothy faithful? Apparently after Paul had passed off the scene, Timothy was released from prison (Hebrews 13:23 I want you to know that our brother Timothy has been released. If he arrives soon, I will come with him to see you.), indicating that he had, in fact, remained firm and had been imprisoned for the sake of the Gospel.
