We will be weeding, trimming bushes, picking up sticks and doing some mulching.  Please  bring your garden tools and come to the church at 8:30am on Saturday, October 20th.

This is a great way to get to know other members of the parish you may not know well while working side by side.  Bring your kids, they can help and contribute and feel a part of the clean-up.

St Timothy Key Holder Responsibility

Security can be an issue at St Timothy's if doors are left unlocked.  If you are unlocking a door when you come into the facility, please lock the door behind you and do not leave the door unlocked.

If you are coming in for an event and you are the person in charge, you may leave the door for your part of the building unlocked until the event is finished then please lock the doors you unlocked.  Examples include:  choir practice, ARM, The Hall, Altar Guild or other scheduled events.  Remember, the person in charge of the event is responsible for locking up or assigning someone to lock up at the end of the event.

If you are here and leave for a few minutes, like for lunch or running an errand, then lock the door when you leave.
Youth and Family Minister Search

We are seeking full-time minister to lead our youth and small-group ministries as well as to provide support for our children's Sunday School programs.  This unordained position reports to the Rector and will oversee a group of lay teachers, parent volunteers and other lay leaders. Visit  www.stimothy.org/youthandfamily  for more information.

Get Connected: Ministry Scheduler

St. Timothy's uses a software package named Ministry Scheduler Pro to manage our volunteers and ministry schedules. This makes it easy to check your ministry commitments, let us know when you are unavailable, and get reminders when you are scheduled to serve. If you have an  iOS  or  Android  device, you can use the MSP mobile app. Or, connect over your browser to https://secure.rotundasoftware.com/l/web-terminal/login/stimothylj .

If you have checked everything but you aren't getting any emails from MSP, try checking your Junk folder. Some email systems incorrectly mark the scheduler as SPAM.
