From Pastor Dinger:
I have been trying to get to know you over the past few months, but there are several hundred of you and just one of me. I want to get connected with you and so help us all get connected to each other. So, we have come up with a plan to help me learn your names and faces a little faster. We will have a raffle over the next month for those that submit a picture of themselves. You don’t have to get dressed up, or use a fancy camera. A cellphone picture will be great. At the end of May we will have a drawing for all those who have submitted a picture for a $100 Walmart gift card . My goal is that everyone will submit a picture and so have a chance at winning, but even more help us get connected to each other.
Please submit all photos to office@timothystl.org along with your full name and a preferred name that you use.
