Groups at St. Timothy
Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA)
Open to all women at Saint Timothy, WELCA sponsors many events throughout the year including an Epiphany Dinner, Valentine “Care Packages” to our college students and those in the military, an on-going Prayer Circle, as well as many social service projects.
WELCA also has three circles:
- Miriam Circle meets on the first Wednesday of the month at noon. In addition to fellowship, they enjoy lively Bible studies.
- Social Issues Circle meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM. They discuss how our faith impacts important social issues of our world.
- Bookworms meet on the second Saturday of the month at 9:30 AM at Border’s Books at Wayne Towne Center. A discussion and understanding of current books is their passion.
Youth are not only the future of the church, they are vital participants in the faith community today! At St. Timothy’s, youth play an active role in worship, music, learning, service and fellowship. Currently there are two Youth Ministry groups at St. Timothy, the Middle School Youth Group and the High School Youth Group.
Each group meets separately about once a month for food, fun, fellowship, and faith discovery. Trips and servant events are scheduled throughout the year. An overnight retreat is generally included in program planning.
Several activities are held with the combined groups providing for greater fellowship and more fun!
Monday Morning Crew
The Monday Morning Crew is a group of retired men who volunteer their time to do many and various jobs around the church. They do tasks such as carpentry, painting, plumbing, electrical, masonry, cutting grass, etc. They also arrange tables and chairs for many events which take place in Fellowship Hall. If the job is too large or beyond their capabilities they may have to contract to have the work done by an outside firm, In which case they supervise the activities. They volunteer their time for 3 hours every Monday morning.
There is also a Monday morning gardening group of men and women who volunteer their time to maintain the gardens and grounds at the church.
