Note from Our Rector

When I first arrived at St. Timothy's in January 2022, I asked God for a word of encouragement for you. God gave me Psalm 1:3. You are mighty oaks of righteousness bearing fruit in and out of season.

I did a painting at the time to depict the word God had given me. Not fine art. None-the-less, I did hear God asking questions as I painted, how we will nurture the next generations? How will we teach them about drawing deeply from the streams of living water? It starts with sharing the abundance of what we have been blessed with - our faith, hope and love, our gifts and talents and our amazing facilities.

I see you doing this St. Timothy's! Way to go! We are sharing our space with more and more groups to be a blessing to them. Let's keep going. The thing is it takes alot to maintain what we have to be able to share it. During Co-vid a few faithful folk, kept things going so you and I can now enjoy the fruit of their labor. They need a break.

Now is the time for everyone to pitch in and do something to help us grow into the community we are to become. Just like any well-functioning family everyone owns a chore.

The easy excuses are I'm too busy or I'm not really good at anything, or I prefer to just come to church, don't hold up any longer. We each have been called by God to love God with all our heart, mind. body and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

I am challenging you this Fall to love God by serving him through the church (his bride) in caring for each other, the building and beyond. I am asking you to engage in your faith, to not just be passive. Only in this way will you and St. Timothy's begin to grow to be all we can be to glorify God. This is our work. In the next 5 weeks we will be exploring different ways you can Be love as you are loved and share of your abundance.

Let's Be the Church - Blessing others as we have been blessed!

For His Sake,

Pastor Robin+

P.S. I am back, I am well, I am rebuilding my strength and I am excited about serving alongside you, learning from the Mighty Oaks of St. Timothy's and rooting deeper in God's word. If you wish to know more of the details about my being out on short term disability. There is a letter to the vestry posted on the bulletin board outside the church office, or you can ask me.

Welcome Fall Gathering

Back to Church and Growing in Prayer and Bible Study

This Fall, I invite you to "begin anew" if you've gotten out of the holy habit of worship in community. Come and join us for Sunday morning worship at 8:30 or 10:30. We will have Christian education between services for adults, and time for kids during the first part of the service.

September's challenge:

Pray daily the Prayer of Jabez and notice what begins to happen in your life. Bruce Wilkerson says it is ok to ask God to bless you with all that he has for you and your family. God wants to give us more than we could hope or imagine. We just have to trust His blessings are what is best for us.

The prayer is a simple one:

"And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, 'Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain. ' So, God granted him what he requested." 1 Chronicles 4:9-10

September 17th after church: Youth Gathering for Pizza Making & Devotional

October, we will be focusing on Being a Blessing to Others as we are deeply rooted in God.

Early October: we will have several opportunities to come together as the family of God for a meal and fellowship at different member's homes.

Saturday, October 7th: Join us for a field trip to Trinity Episcopal Church in Galveston. The St. John Bibles - Illuminated scripture with be on display, as well as,an opportunity to hear from one of the original illuminating artists. These are just a few highlights of what is to come this Fall. So, come and join in the joy of being connected to God's family and invite your friends.

Fall Formation of Faith

Sunday's in September: In the parish hall by the windows: Pastor Robin will lead a discussion about forgiveness as it is being presented in our Sunday readings.

Living the loving lifestyle of Luke 10 could just bring about a great revolution of love that could result in revival of the Church and a great spiritual awakening and harvest in our nation and beyond.

Pick up the workbook in the office or ask Gary, Colinda, Gigi, Tony, Angela or Pastor Robin how it is impacting their living their faith daily and bringing joy. Bring any questions you may have.

We are gearing up to share this with you in a variety of ways to help you engage your faith in simple ways as you go about your daily activities. Whether you are very shy or extraverted, you can do these four easy steps in the best way for you.

Stay tuned.

The question is, how do we love God with all our hearts and love our neighbors as ourselves? The Luke - 10 Training answers this question and will prepare participants to live out their faith in small ways everyday as they go about their daily lives - We are Blessed to BE a blessing. Come learn simple ways of how to pass on God's blessing and build up the Kingdom of Heaven.

Timothy's Troop

Students in grades 1-5 are invited to have a lesson with Jane Power during the 10:30 service.

Come to the back of the church - students will return for Eucharist with their families.


Part of Being a Ambassador of Love, is giving of our time through volunteering. Whether it is just pitching in where you see help is needed or joining a ministry team, you are needed. There are no by-standers here. Join in something as it is part of being a part of the body of Christ. You will discover you find joy in serving which enriches the rest of your life. Below are just a few ways you can join in worshipping God through the giving of your time and talent.
Serving On the Vestry or Board of St. Timothy's Is An Honor

October 29th St. Timothy's Members will Vote In New Leaders for the Vestry.

You can nominate yourself or someone else by contacting Gary Jones. Forms are located in the Narthex as well as the link below.


Today's vestry is not what it used to be! We enjoy fellowship, grow spiritually and focus on strategic initiatives for furthering God's mission in and through St. Timothy's. Each year we covenant how we want to work together with respect, care, joy and confidentiality. We no longer sit through reports of what has been done. Those are posted on Base Camp.

We read the reports before coming to the monthly meeting, the 4th Tuesday 6:30 - 8 p.m. That way we can approve or amend them quickly all together and move on to the important work of building relationships and holy habits like Jesus and His disciples did. We listen for how the Holy Spirit is at work in and about St. Timothy's and look at how we might join in. We focus on strategic initiatives.

If you have a desire to grow spiritually and share your gifts of communications, strategic planning, hospitality, volunteer coordinating, among others, please talk with Gary Jones or Pastor Robin. Those on vestry this year can tell you more about their experience as well. I give thanks for each of them and the gifts they bring to contribute to the life of the church. Note: you can nominate someone by filling out the form below or you can nominate yourself.

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.

Those in Need of Self-Compassion or Compassion for Others

Did you know practicing self- compassion has proven health benefits. On her TEDx talk on self-esteem versus self-compassion, Dr. Kristin Neff with University of Texas, shares how self-esteem is based on comparison. However, self-compassion grows not only health for self but care and compassion for others. Research has shown it to reduce stress and the negative health effects of stress, anxiety, blood pressure and more. More information can be found at
or TEDx: The Space Between Self Esteem and Self Compassion.

I highly recommend you listen to the meditations she has from 6-20 minutes long on this site.
