We are excited to announce that the Rector Search is officially underway. The position has been posted by our Diocese and can now be seen by Episcopal clergy across the country who are seeking a Rector position. Our Parish Profile has also been posted on our website. This was a group effort, from taking the survey and participating in the discovery session to taking photos and video to drafting, reviewing, editing, and formatting!! Many, many thanks to EVERYONE that contributed to the Profile!
The Search Committee will now begin accepting and reviewing resumes. During this period, we ask that everyone respect our need for confidentiality. The members of the Search Committee are not allowed to discuss any aspect of the review process until we present three to five candidates to the vestry for final interviews. We ask for your continued prayers for clarity to discern who the Lord has called as our next Rector.
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. ~ Jeremiah 29:11

Bill Shreve and Mary Ann Plano are leading a Bible study on Thursday nights from February 2 through March 2 at 7:15pm in the Guild Room at St. Tim’s. This class uses the Kaleidoscope Bible Study technique to take an in-depth look at the Gospel reading for the week. You don’t need to be an expert for this type of study. There is no pre-reading and no homework. Just come as you are. There is no long term commitment, and each weekly study stands on its own.
The Episcopal Church in Almaden will be a daytime warming center for the 15 medically fragile, homeless women. Our warming center will operate 7 days per week from 7am until 7pm…so we will need help from our brothers and sisters in other churches for staffing. There are two-hour shifts for volunteers throughout each 12-hour day. The main task of the volunteer is to be present. Having conversations, doing puzzles, working on projects and sitting down to a meal with guests are also opportunities to do something that makes a difference in the lives of some individuals. Sign up online or on our website (sign up is on the right sidebar.) Contact Bonnie McPherson for more information or questions.
2017 has arrived and we are welcoming new sign-ups for flower dedications. This is a great way to honor birthdays, anniversaries, memorials, etc. while supporting our Altar Guild. Please sign up on the chart located on the inside of our front doors. You will be contacted for what you would like the dedication to read. We are increasing the suggested donation due to the rising cost of flowers. Please know that this is a DONATION so any amount will be welcomed. More than one person may sign up for any particular week.
