A Note from our Rector

Dear Beloved of God,

I give thanks for every one of you and the blessing you are to me and our St.Timothy's family. As we head into the week of the Thanksgiving holidays, you may consider pausing to reflect on the ways you have experienced God's presence this past year. Then notice how you feel in your heart. Sometimes we don't even realize God was present in a situation until we look back. Consider giving thanks for God's goodness as experienced through other people.

Whether you plan to gather with family or friends, are alone, or with folks at St. Timothy's 9:30 am Morning Prayer on Thanksgiving Day, I pray you may know the joy of gratitude and see others through eyes of grace. May you experience God's love for you and those you love and the world this day. In Jesus Name, Amen.

With Gratitude,

(root word meaning Grace)

Pastor Robin+

Rooted in Abundance

In-Gathering Appreciation and Pledging Status

Thank all of you who attended the In-Gathering Celebration. I hope you enjoyed the fellowship and food. Also, I thank all of you who were not present, but have pledged. I believe that the stewardship of (caring for) God's creation including our world, God's children (ourselves, our families, and others), and the church is an essential part of our expression of our love for God. I hope that filling out your pledge card gave you an opportunity to reflect on this. 

Part of the responsibility of St. Timothy's leadership's team is to keep you informed regarding our financial condition and plans. The Finance Committee has just started drafting the 2024 budget. Pledges make up the major portion of our income side of the budget. To date we have received 44 pledge cards for $306,786. Of this $276,966 has been designated for operations and $29,820 for capital replacement. Operations pledges go into the budget, capital is a separate fund. We are several pledges and about $37,100 below our anticipations for the operating fund based on last year's pledges and contributions. If you have not submitted your pledge card yet, please prayerfully consider doing so soon. If you have something going on that will prevent you from pledging, please know that is ok. Pastor Robin is available to meet with you pastorally.

St. Timothy's Angle Tree Program

  • Begins: Sunday, November 26
  • Deadline: December 15

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 $25.00


Each October the church receives a list of children who live in the Clute-Lake Jackson area codes. The caregivers are contacted for sizes and gift suggestions. These gift ideas are written on the paper angels placed on the Angel Tree. The “tree” will be in the narthex starting Sunday, November 26. 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.


Your participation is needed and we will be happy to deliver “Angels” to you and pick up gifts if you are unable to get to the church. Call or text Nancy Carter at 979-285-4831.


The wrapped gifts should be returned no later than December 15. 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”.
