St. Timothy Bluebirds is an educational, social, service, and spiritual group for members and friends over age 50 who join together once a month for a weekday outing or event. Bluebirds provides monthly opportunities for building friendships through fellowship, food and local activities to include tours, theater, lunch and dinner outings, and more! The group meets the second Tuesday of each month. Membership is open to all.
The St. Timothy Community Garden was established to provide fresh produce for non-profit organizations that distribute food to those in need. You don’t have to have a green thumb to be a part of this ministry, just a desire to help. Contact Ron Morgenstern to find out more.
When life is turned upside down, the St. Timothy Dinner Angels bring a little relief and warm comfort to our members. Whether someone has returned home from the hospital, a family has lost a loved one, or a member is experiencing a serious illness or has special needs, the Dinner Angels are ready to help with a meal for the entire household.
Members from St. Timothy participate in the Sumner County Habitat for Humanity’s builds to help build a home for a qualified candidate from Sumner County. From time to time, members also assist with special critical repair projects for seniors or veterans in the community.
The Knit One, Pray Too group meets once a month on the second Thursday of the month at 6 pm. All who are interested in spending time together knitting and crocheting for a good cause (chemo hats, prayer shawls, stroller blankets, hats and scarves for the homeless) are invited to join. Feel free to bring a knitting or crochet project to work on! If you are interested in learning, several people can assist with that – we will have yarn and knitting needles/crochet hooks for you, along with easy patterns for hats and prayer shawls. Please join our Facebook Group if you are interested.
Throughout the year, members and visitors can place food donations of canned goods and non-perishable items for the Hendersonville Samaritan Association and other area food pantries and non-profits in the basket provided in the narthex.
Quilters meet the second Saturday of each month to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. These quilts are distributed around the world to those in need. Whether used to stay warm; carry babies, food, or goods for sale; or as a room divider, quilts let the people receiving them know they are loved.
The Men of St. Timothy (MOST) meet regularly on the fourth Saturday of the month to discuss ways they can serve the church and community. Whether it’s building shelves, moving furniture, hanging banners or cooking Easter Breakfast, MOST brings helping hands to all areas of St. Timothy.
From time to time, the Outreach Committee and the St. Timothy Congregation collect donations of individual snack items to create Sacks of Kindness for area organizations.
