DARKNESS TO LIGHT-STEWARDS OF CHILDREN TRAINING
For any adult who plans on working with our children during VBS, Sunday’s Cool, in the nursery, as a missionary to Casa Bernabé, or in any other capacity, it is our policy to require child abuse awareness and prevention training and a background check. We have a FREE group training opportunity this month! On Wednesday, May 23 from 6:30-8:30 PM we have a D2L-Stewards of Children facilitator coming to St. Timothy for a session! Once complete, participants will be certified for 3 years. Please sign up on the bulletin insert or call the church office or use the link above if you would like to participate. If you can’t make this session you may take the course on line at your convenience for a $10 fee (D2L.org).


VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Shipwrecked Vacation Bible School 2018 is the week of June 11-15. As we rev up for the big event we are recruiting for our teaching team and decorating team. There are so many ways to be involved! If you are interested in volunteering in this fantastic church-wide event, please contact Vicki Morris. You may conveniently register your child for VBS or to volunteer on our website. Look for the VBS link on our homepage.
 


ABC – ADULT BIBLE CLASS

This is an ongoing adult Bible study for which no registration is required.



SUNDAY’S COOL
Meets each Sunday during a portion of the 11:00 worship service.
Children ages 4 through elementary school leave the worship service after the Children’s Moment and return during the song after the sermon. Story, crafts, music, and games are used to bring our current sermon series alive for our children.  (Note: No class on Easter morning.)

 

MEET & GREET with PASTOR

SECOND SATURDAY Men’s Group
Men of all ages are invited to Second Saturday on May 12. On the second Saturday of each month the men gather for breakfast at 8:30, Bible study at 9:00, and for a great time of brotherly fellowship. If you would like to come it would be helpful if you would register on Sundays or with the link above so we can plan breakfast.


 
Teen Girls' SECOND SATURDAY
High school girls age 13-18 get together the second Saturday of each month. Times vary. If you are new to the group and want to be linked to the updates, please contact the church office.


FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT
May 19 at 5:30PM. Plan to join us for DO YOU BELIEVE?, a movie whose title poses a compelling question to each of us. This movie is rated PG-13.  Please read the review on www. pluggedin.com as you decide whether or not this movie is appropriate for the children in your family.

GOLDEN PEOPLE DINING OUT
Folks 50 and over will meet
Thursday, April 26 at 5PM at O'Charley's, 2150 Northwoods Blvd. Please register on the Sunday bulletin insert or with the registration link above.


GOLDEN PEOPLE SPRING DAY TRIP
On April 24th the Golden People (folks 50 and over) will go on their spring day trip to the Pearl Fryar Topiary Garden, 145 Broad Acres Road in Bishopville. Pearl’s internationally recognized garden contains over 300 individual plants and few are spared from his skilled trimming. His extraordinary topiary is complemented by his “junk art” sculptures placed throughout the garden. See the brochure on the community bulletin board or go to pearlfryer.com to find out more. Gather at St Timothy to carpool, with departure at 8:00 a.m., and arrival at 10:00 a.m.  This is a walking tour.  Donations may be made to the gardens. Lunch will be at Harry and Harry Two, which is on Route 15, just outside the entrance to Broad Acres Road. Participants should be returning to the church no later than 3:00 p.m.


GOLDEN GIRLS
The Golden Girls include all women in the congregation 50 and older and we welcome everyone who wants to come.  During the year the new Barbecue Dinner and the annual Easter Breakfast are our biggest ventures.  We hold these events to raise money for our benevolence fund. This fund is used to help members of our church family when they are in difficult times and need a little help with their bills. We don't always meet every month because we join the Golden People group for monthly dinners. Typically we meet on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 4PM.  Our meetings aren’t all planning though. We have a lot of fun in our fellowship together! 



BLAST  (Book Lovers At St. Timothy)
May’s selection is The Boys on the Boat by Daniel James Brown. Hosted by Jenny Tuggle, the book club will meet May 25, at 7PM, location to be announced.

LUNCH FELLOWSHIP GROUP
Mondays at 11:30 at the Wendy's on Redbank Rd.  Everyone is welcome for a casual lunch and Christian fellowship.
