Stewardship update:  The stewardship team met last week via Zoom for the first time since the Covid lockdown and discussed ideas about celebrating our blessings, sharing our gifts with each other, the local community, and promoting the gospel and our ministries.  We discussed several ideas for celebrating our 110th Anniversary year of the first Mission of St. Timothy’s in 2021.  It is hoped that these ideas would re-connect us with one another as well as connect us to our local community.  Our plan is to contact various ministry groups this Fall to find out how God has blessed them during the Covid lockdown and how they may participate in next year's anniversary events.  Leave your questions/comments for me at   ---Kevin, Chair of Stewardship        

Prayers for people missing church due to Covid:  Has your family decided it’s too risky to attend church services?  Would you like us to pray for you while you are away from church and worshiping at home?   We invite you to submit a prayer request and (if you like) send us a photo of your family so that we can pray for you each week!  Let us know if we can share this on our Sunday Post.  With your permission, we might also print the photo of your family and place it in your “normal” pew until you return to church as a way to help us remember that we are one family in Christ (and possibly as a socially distant place-holder!)  Let us know what you think!  -- Kevin, Chair of Stewardship  

St. Timothy’s Student Awards:  St. Timothy's Outreach Committee is delighted to announce that there are 3 very worthy recipients of a student Community Service Award: Kristi Cheong, Jacob Chung, Marshall Smalling. We are very proud of you and wish you well as you continue your studies.  – Rev. Kathy, Chair of Outreach

Fellowship: Fellowship and Coffee will resume outside the church after the service on Sunday- bring your coffee and your lawn chair!    

Register for Church:  Interested in attending the Wednesday or Sunday service each week?  Or thinking of joining us for the first time in the coming week?  Please register with the office

Peace & love,
