Preschool News

The preschool hosted a Welcome Day last week!  The teachers enjoyed getting to know the children and their adults, and the families enjoyed seeing the preschool and play yards!

A huge ‘shout out’ to all those who pitched in to get room 10 ready for the first day of preschool. Another fine example of what we can do when we come together!

Ongoing Ministries

 Amazon Smile – Supporting St. Timothy’s

Amazon Smile will donate 0.5% of your shopping cart to St. Timothy’s.  Just go to  The first time you use it, you’ll be prompted to choose a charity (pick St. Timothy’s as your charity).  Every time you shop using, your selected charity will get $1 out of every $200 you spend.




A special opportunity: The Episcopal Church in Almaden

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.

Sign-ups for Flower Dedications

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.
