Kaleidoscope Bible Study Thursday Evenings

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.


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.


Search Committee Update

Rector Search

Do you have any airline miles you are willing to donate? The Rector Search committee will soon be scheduling in-person interviews with Rector candidates around the country. In order to cut down on costs, we would like to know if any of our fellow parishioners might have miles they are willing to gift.

If so, please contact Jen Shumway to work out the details. Your donations are greatly appreciated!

 

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.

Thank you for your interest in becoming the next Rector of St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Mountain View.  There are lots of things to discover about St. Timothy’s on our website and in our Parish Profile.  We invite you to explore both!

We are no longer accepting applications for our new Rector position. The Search Committee is still hard at work and continues to be grateful for the prayers and support from the congregation as you not only respect our need to keep our work confidential, but also as you continue to have open minds and faithful hearts on this journey to discern God’s plan for us.
