Preparation for and Enjoyment of the Bishop’s visit

Saturday, October 21st., found several members of St. Timothy’s busy beautifying the area around the church and parish hall. Armed with an array of gardening tools, we attacked the vines overgrowing the bushes around the church buildings, pruned bushes, pulled weeds and dead headed roses. The result is gratifying, but we know from past experience, that repeat performances will be an ongoing requirement!  So, if you were not able to join us on the 21st., don’t fret, there will be plenty of opportunity in the future! The next...

Catch-up, Looking Back and Forward.

On September 16, approximately one hundred families were given assistance with the distribution of supplies to those devastated by Hurricane Harvey. A number of people worked very hard to make this possible. Our special thanks to Patty Gaspard who, although having storm damage in her own home, was the prime mover in this enterprise. We thank all those in the local area who gave supplies and a big thank you to Patty’s sister who traveled from Atlanta with a truck load of needed items. Of those who spent many hours sorting the gently used...

SUNDAY SERVICES and DISTRIBUTION of ITEMS FOR FLOOD VICTIMS

Posted by on Sep 15, 2017 in News | 0 comments

Most members of St. Timothy’s came through Harvey’s torrential downpours unscathed, but not all. We also have family members or neighbors who suffered loss. The Sunday following the end of the rains, we met for a combined service at which we shared our experiences, gave thanksgiving for mercies received and prayed for those less fortunate. We continued with the Eucharist at which Father Singh officiated. The priest scheduled to be with us this coming Sunday, September 17th., has had to cancel. So, we will again have a combined...

A Property Update – St. Timothy’s Trees.

A Property Update – St. Timothy’s Trees.

The Episcopal Diocese of Texas, of which we at St. Timothy’s are a part, owns the entire block of land where our church is located. This is a mixed blessing for church members. While allowing plenty of space for outdoor activities, its upkeep is prohibitive in terms of dollars and volunteer time and sweat! The large undeveloped area was originally graced with many trees, but time and nature have resulted in numerous empty spaces. Hurricane Ike alone, in September 2008, destroyed or severely damaged more than sixty, necessitating their...
