Christmas Food Drive
St. Timothy's is again partnering with The Food Basket to provide a special Christmas food box. St. Timothy's has committed to provide 140 each of:
  • 4lb bags of sugar
  • Cans of fruit pie filling (any fruit)
Please place these items in the big red buckets in the hallway any time, or at the organ recital. We need this by December 6.

Thank you for helping our neighbors celebrate our Lord's birth with an enjoyable meal!
The St. Timothy's Angel Tree
The Angel Tree program is a national organization that allows parents in prison to strengthen their connection with their children by providing gifts with a personal message from the parent. Each child receives a toy gift, a clothing gift, and an age appropriate religious book. No gift should exceed $20.00

The “tree” will be in the narthex starting Sunday, November 22. A donor selects an angel, purchases the gift, wraps it, attaches the top part of the angel to the package, and brings it to the church. The gifts are delivered the week before Christmas.

The wrapped gifts should be returned no later than December 13. Donations of money for books can be put in the stocking on the tree or given to Nancy Carter. Checks should be written to St. Timothy’s with a notation of “for Angel Tree”.
