This Week at St. Timothy’s
For the Week Beginning November 8th, 2009


Veteran’s Day Prayer

Dear Lord,

Today we honor our veterans,worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country. We pray that you will bless them, Lord,for their unselfish service in the continual struggle to reserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country’s heritage, for all of us.  Bless them abundantly for the hardships they faced, for the sacrifices they made for their many different contributions to
America’s victories over tyranny and oppression.  We respect them, we thank them, we honor them, we are proud of them, and we pray that you will watch over these special people and bless them with peace and happiness. In Jesus’ name we pray; Amen.

Have a Blessed Week,

Jozetta, Richlyn Ophelia & Stacy 


ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2009 we will have only one service at 9 a.m. for the Commissioning of our newly licensed LEV/LEM/s.  Please come out en masse to support these men and women who have offered themselves to serve God and serve God’s people especially those who are unable to be in church on Sundays. 


VESTRY MEETING

 

The 2010 Budget will be presented at the Vestry meeting on Saturday, November 14, 2009.  Parishioners who are interested in a more in depth explanation of the Budget are invited to attend the Vestry meeting.  This effort is in response the recommendation that parishioners have an opportunity to get more information about the budget and to reduce the amount of time spent on this matter at the Annual Meeting.

THE 2009 VESTRY NOMINATING COMMITTEE began its work to ensure an acceptable slate of candidates is presented to the members of St. Timothy's Church at the December 13, Annual Parish Meeting. Six Vestry positions, to include the Junior Warden, will be filled. The vacancies include the Youth Representative who will be selected by the Youth Group. The slate will be presented for approval of the Vestry at the November 14, Vestry meeting. Once biographical information is obtained, the slate will be shared with ALL parishioners. Desiree DeFlorimonte & Harry Johnson, Co-chairpersons

VESTRY ELECTION ABSENTEE BALLOTS are available to members who will be unable to attend the Annual Meeting due to illness, handicapped or the necessity to travel out of town for business or family emergency. If you need to cast an absentee ballot, please contact Ruby Quartey-Taylor no later than Sunday, November 22, 2009. Thank you.
