Ash Wednesday Services February 13

Ash Wednesday services will be observed at noon and 7:30 pm on Feb. 13th. Join the congregation in this moving service as we make a beginning in the season of Lent, opening ourselves to reconciliation and preparing for Easter.

Youth Group:

Except on special weekends, our Junior High Youth Group meets every Sunday evening at 5:00, with Senior High following at 7:00. They enjoy a variety of games, fellowship, and Bible discussions. Youth Sunday School takes place at 10:00 am each week. No matter what your background or church experience, you are welcome here! All meetings take place downstairs in our beautiful new D-Zone.

MUSIC

Every Sunday at the 10:00 am service our worship is supported by fabulous music from our choir and organist. Carefully-chosen hymns and anthems bring out the meanings of the Scriptures and help us to “pray twice” as we sing.

You are invited to join either the Choir or our Glory Bells handbell group. Expert instruction and great comradeship will be provided, and no previous experience is necessary. Rehearsals are downstairs off the parish hall—Glory Bells on Mondays at 7:00 pm, Choir on Thursday evenings at 6:30.

Men’s Brotherhood
Brotherhood of St. Andrew is a ministry of men within the Anglican Communion whose three disciplines are Prayer, Study, and Service. We meet every other Tuesday morning from 6:30 to 8:00 in the parish hall, after which many of us go out to breakfast. All men are welcome to join us.

At each meeting we read and discuss the Scripture lessons for the forthcoming Sunday, using a study guide. Discussions are lively, with some humor thrown in for good measure. We end each meeting with prayer for the needs of the community and serve in a variety of ways through the year.

Adult Forum
This Adult Forum continues a series on the future of the Episcopal Church each Sunday this month at 9:00 am. Beginning January 6, programs will return to a discussion of how we express our faith in today’s world. Join scholar Dennis Haugh and other leaders at this series of programs, which are held downstairs in our Library.

During the following weeks we will look at Holy Humor, the Anglican Rosaries, praying the Anglican Rosaries, and a 3 part series on the Passion Narratives.

Worship

Sunday Worship: We take delight in worship every Sunday morning at 7:45 and 10:00. Our services come from the Book of Common Prayer, resting on that tradition in a relaxed manner. A variety of preachers opens up the Word each week, with attention to its meaning in our lives. The early service includes some hymn singing accompanied by organ, and our Choir leads the singing at 10:00. Childcare and Sunday School are offered every Sunday at 10:00, downstairs off the parish hall. Coffee Hour follows each worship service—please come and see!

D'Zone Youth Center

D'Zone: Our beautiful new D-Zone is open to all Junior and Senior High School students on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:30 to 5:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to come hang out, have a snack, get help with homework, and generally enjoy a friendly crowd. And don’t miss Taco Tuesdays, each week from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Check out the D'Zone vidio at www.drennenomeliayouthcenter.net.

Food Donations -
We collect food year-round for distribution by area food banks. It’s so easy when you’re shopping to pick up a few extra cans, boxes or bags of non-perishable food. You can place donations in the basket in the narthex on Sunday mornings or during weekday business hours. Share your abundance and make a difference for struggling families!

The Freedom to be Faithful

It’s interesting that in the Gospels Jesus talked about money far more often than prayer. Do you suppose that made people as uncomfortable then as it would today? Money has never been an easy subject to discuss.

During this year’s Lent Series, participants will explore their own questions and our collective issues about the power and meaning of money in our lives. As we examine one of the taboo subjects of our culture, what can we learn about ourselves and the spiritual foundations of our community?

Presenters Karin Sugarman, Daniel Bennett, and Rev. Michael will share their stories, open up biblical teachings, and invite conversation aimed at helping us gain a sense of freedom with the gifts we’ve been given. Join us to:
1. Take the judgment out of our feelings about discussing money.
2. Discover how biblical narratives can help us to understand our relationship to money.
3. Learn how wrestling with personal finances can increase our faith and peacefulness.
4. Try on the concept of putting God in charge of our budgets.
5. Learn how to be better stewards of our money by discovering our own paths to God’s guidance.

On February 13 we’ll celebrate Ash Wednesday services at noon and 7:30 pm. The next Wednesday evening the Lent Series will begin. Each week, following a celebration of Eucharist at 5:30 pm, we’ll gather downstairs at 6:00 for a soup supper provided by one of our ministry groups. The program will start at 6:45 and continue until 8:00, when we’ll end the evening with Compline. You’re invited to come when you can and leave when you must.

Below is a list of the program subjects and presenters. We hope that everyone will consider taking part in these evenings—feel free to invite your friends and neighbors. If you need childcare, contact the church office in advance.

Feb. 20: Karin Sugarman—“Following a Faithful Discipline” Karin describes how she and Paul learned how to develop fiscal discipline so that they can not only live within their means but feel free to make decisions according to God’s call.

Feb. 27: Daniel Bennett—“Developing a Faithful Legacy Part I” In part 1 Daniel explores biblical wisdom about money and how giving money away immeasurably enriches our lives: connecting us spiritually and practically to our highest values.

March 6: Daniel Bennett—“Developing a Faithful Legacy Part II” In part 2 Daniel discusses the Bible's prescription for immortality through the legacy we leave behind, and strategies for carrying our best intentions forward beyond the span of our lives.

March 13: Rev. Michael—“Faithful to God’s Call” Michael recounts the experience he and Marsha had of falling off a “fiscal cliff” into overwhelming personal debt and their long, slow journey back to the surface.

March 20: Rev. Michael—“Jubilee: The Year of the Lord’s Favor” Through the biblical image of Jubilee, Michael explores the possibility that the whole community can share in celebrating their freedom to be faithful.

Children's Ministries
Children are not the future of the church, but vital present members. Their open hearts and exuberance remind adults that “whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.” (Mark 10:15) The children of St. Timothy’s are loved by members of all ages and are always welcome in worship.

The children meet downstairs each Sunday at 10:00--ask any of the adults in the classrooms to help you find your place.

Children’s Ministry Coordinator Margaret Utter is always ready to welcome new families into the program—you can contact her at meutter@earthlink.net.

“Were you there?” will be the focus of Kathy Hendricks’ program on Saturday, March 9 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. She’ll take us to the foot of the Cross on Good Friday, hearing the story from the points of view of the participants. After an imaginative conversation among those characters, we’ll be invited to consider where we fit into that scene. Kathy’s presentations will be complemented by simple Lenten chants, and the afternoon will conclude with a contemplative Eucharist at 4:15. There’s no charge for this program--everyone will be welcome, whatever your background.

Stations of the Cross
On Sunday, March 10 at 5:00 pm, we’ll have a chance to “turn our faces to Jerusalem” and follow the footsteps of Jesus to the Cross. Using a beautiful meditation written by Jeff Spahr and accompanied by the music of Joyce Culwell and friends, our hearts will be opened to a deeper appreciation of the offering of Jesus’ life. People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to take part in this Lenten devotion.
