Announcements     

Christmas Service Survey:  Below is a link to our Christmas Survey asking you and your family to think about which Christmas service you plan to attend this year (and whether you will attend online or in-person.)  If you would prefer to receive a “hard copy” of the survey, simply let the office know and we’ll be sure to provide you with a hard copy.  Please complete the survey before Reign of Christ, Sunday, November 22nd.

Weekly and Monthly Giving:  While our expenses have decreased slightly, our income has come up even shorter. And this is mainly due to a significant decrease in our expected weekly/monthly giving. After our summer ‘break’, we each now need to look to our planned financial commitments to St Timothy’s and “catch up” as necessary.  And while we have increasingly been enjoying our virtual church services - Wednesday audio, Youtube sermons and Sunday morning Zoom gatherings – the church still needs real financial gifts to operate.  During the ‘disruptions’ to our lives due to COVID this might also be a good time to consider PAR (Pre- Authorized Remittance). Through an automatic monthly withdrawal from your bank account, PAR allows you to give to what matters to you most.  Sometimes life’s agenda takes over our best-laid plans. With PAR, you don’t have to worry about writing a cheque or forgetting to donate because COVID has thrown you a curveball. By signing up for PAR, you make a clear statement of what is important to you. Contact Penny Laity for any questions and to sign up.  -- Peter       

The 2020 Advent Gift Tree:  Bring your unwrapped gift to the church before December 11.  Gifts should be age-appropriate for a boy or girl, gift cards for high school-aged kids
