Note from Mark
I wanted to take a moment to thank the congregation for the wonderful support I received during and in the recovery of my back surgery. It was a blessing to have so many notes, in person visits, meals and prayers with the special people of Timothy. I will be starting the physical therapy phase next week, but the surgery was successful (praise God!) and the relief has been a very welcome addition to my daily routines. Thank you all for your prayers and support!
Sunday, September 23
12:15 pm in the Gymnasium (pizza and salad available)
The purpose of this meeting is to receive a recommendation from the Call Committee to extend a call to one of the four candidates with whom the Committee conducted follow-up interviews: Steve Miller (St. Andrew, Silver
Springs, MD), Eric Longman (St. Paul’s, Jackson, MO), Andrew Dinger (Holy Trinity, Somerset, NJ), and Sean McCoy (Shepherd of the Hills, Skiatook, OK). Two other candidates that were interviewed in the first round have indicated that this is not an appropriate time for them to consider a call.
The Committee will release the names it will be recommending as soon as possible, electronically via Constant Comment and the Timothy website (timothystl.org), and in the September 16 Newsletter.
begins on September 26! Mark your calendars! Hope to see many new faces! MARANATHA is on hold as we lost our director and our guitarist is in Germany for a year. We are currently working to find a director for both groups!
