Giving Tuesday

Posted by Webwright October 28, 2014 under Church School

#GivingTuesday is a national day of giving and is observed on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday, this year December 2nd, 2014. #GivingTuesday first launched in 2012 to encourage conspicuous compassion rather than conspicuous consumption during the holidays.

St. Timothy’s Church School will host a Food Drive during the month of November for North Raleigh Ministries and Backpack Buddies delivering the items on #GivingTuesday. Starting Nov. 2nd, please bring in non-perishable food items or look for our table set up at coffee hour to purchase items from our Sunday school children for donation. For a list of the most needed items please see the #GivingTuesday link on our website, www.StTimothysChurch.org. For questions or to volunteer please contact Sarah Culton at christianed@sttimothys.org or 919-787-7590.

About Our Nursery

Posted by Webwright under Church News

Please take advantage of our fully staffed nursery during the 9 AM and 11 AM services. The nursery is reserved for babies and toddlers ages 3 months to 3 years old. If your child is 4 years old or older, please enroll them in our Church School. If you prefer the 9 AM service, please bring your children to church with you to learn how to worship Christ. Parents must take a pager with them into church if they leave a child in the nursery.

Stewardship Campaign Update

Posted by Webwright October 19, 2014 under Stewardship

We are in our third week of the 2015 Stewardship Campaign. The theme for the 2015 Stewardship Campaign is “Turn on Your Light”. The symbol of the Olympic torch reminds us how God’s Light can be turned on within ourselves and our community by volunteering to serve on one of our numerous church organizations and by renewing our financial commitment to Saint Timothy’s Church. Keeping our commitment enables the church to carry out its mission and serves the practical purpose of literally keeping the “lights” on.

As part of our Stewardship Program, we will have a series of Stewardship Speakers at both the 9 and 11 AM services. Monica Brown will speak on October 12th, Ndidi Manuel on October 19th and Peter Bourey and Mark McKeown (our Church Wardens) on October 26th.

In the spirit of healthy Olympic competition, the whole parish has been divided in three teams: the cities of Rome, Constantinople and Alexandria. We will follow which team completes and returns the most pledge cards for four weeks, and at our Closing Ceremonies on October 26th  from 5 to 7 PM we will find out which team member wins a $500.00 Visa Gift Card. You will be able to follow which team is in the lead week by week by watching the posters in the narthex and in the parish hall.  After two weeks of competition, Constantinople is the team with the most pledge cards, and the parish has received 86 pledge cards form all the cities.

Please make every effort to attend the Closing Ceremonies. There will be Olympic Games for the children, and we’ll enjoy great international food that evening. Pledge cards and envelopes have been mailed to our homes, and they are also available in the narthex.

Blessing of Pets For Saint Francis Day

Posted by Webwright under Church Events

It has become a custom to bless the animals on or around Saint Francis Day. Saint Francis loved the natural world God created and loved all of the creatures in it. He saw nature as reflecting the beauty of its Creator and could see the loving will of God and His hand in all of nature.

Sunday, October 5th is the Sunday closest to Saint Francis Day, and as such we will have out Annual Blessing of Pets at 3PM on that day. If you have pets of any size or shape, please bring them to the front doors of the Church, and we will pray over them and bless them. Our pets and all creatures are dear to us, and we can give thanks that God has let us enjoy them and care for them. There is ample parking at the Landmark Office Building as well as the spaces adjacent to the Church.

Feast of Saint Michael and All Angels

Posted by Webwright September 28, 2014 under Worship and Prayer

Due honor and thanksgiving are given on this day for the ministry of the angels who watch over us and guard us and guide us by delivering God’s messages to us and carrying our messages to God. That is reason enough for the solemn celebration we keep this day, but we can also thank God for giving us a religion that is personified in our Blessed Saint Michael the Archangel. He shows us that Christianity is a strong and powerful religion that holds and sheds God’s grace for strength to fight against all the forces of sin and evil. We give thanksgiving that Satan is defeated and no amount of wickedness or evil can overcome the loving and healing power of God’s grace.
