On Saturday of God’s Work Our Hands several of our members volunteered at the Human Solutions Women’s Shelter. During this time of service they discovered a need: dishes, silverware, and twin sheets and blankets. These items frequently go missing as women move out of the shelter so women are currently eating off of plastic lids and whatever else they can scrounge up.
Betty Caramella’s Funeral will be at Willamette National Cemetery on November 9 th at 2:00pm. Please go to the main office at the cemetery for the location of the gravesite. We will have a celebration of life gathering at the church on November 9th from 3:00—6:00pm in the basement.
New prayer beads are available. If you would like a set or to learn how to use prayer beads, please contact Pastor Jen or the church office.
We have several bags full of homeless care items ready for you to give to people in need on the street. Keep them in your car to give out as you see a need.
On All Saints Sunday we remember the members of St. Timothy that have died in the past year. We remember the promise made and fulfilled that God would remember them and that Jesus would bring them home into the arms of our loving God. All Saints Sunday is also a day to remember all our loved ones and the promise of resurrection made and kept in their lives too. You are invited to bring a picture of your loved ones that have passed away and lay them at the steps of the chancel (the stage).

Catechumenate refers to a person who is studying the foundations of faith. This class will be your chance to study your Catechism again, delve deeply into God’s Word, and other topics of interest. There will be some teaching from Pastor Jen but also lots of discussion and sharing our own insights and wondering together “What does this mean?” The next class will be on November 4th after worship. We will meet in the church basement following coffee hour.
