Festive Rock Music Worship is every Sunday in December at 7 p.m. in St. Timothy’s Church. Our seven-member live house band ROCKS with inspiring Advent and Christmas songs. It includes the Advent Service of Light with lots and lots of candles. On Dec. 15th we’re having a TESTIMONIAL by Karen Caldwell , special music with Chloe Shubley and a PARTY to follow with hot apple cider and cookies. Bring a friend!
You are not alone. These one-night sessions provide practical tools for participants, including a personal Holiday Survival Guide to take home. Both workshops are free as these programs are supported financially by the Chebucto Community Health Board and The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia. Anyone may attend, regardless of any church connection.
"Surviving the Holidays - DivorceCare" isTuesday, Dec. 3rd, 7 p.m. in St. Timothy’s Hall. "Surviving the Holidays - GriefShare" isThursday, Dec. 5th, 7 p.m. in Prospect Road Community Center.
Every year we take part in a local shoebox Christmas gift program. The Missions to Seafarers initiative is for the 2000+ sailors who visit the Port of Halifax during the holiday season. Many of them come from developing countries, like the Philippines, and earn little in wages. Our Parish sends shoeboxes filled with goodies - mittens, pens,toothpaste, soap, shampoo, hard candy, etc. - for the men (and a few women sailors) who visit our shore.
Don’t have time to shop? Send a gift cards – International calling cards are a fabulous way to help seafarers stay in touch with their families back home. Empty boxes with instructions will be available starting Nov. 17 at the back of St. Timothy’s Church. Return deadline is December 15th. Linda & Wayne Joyce are coordinators. Got questions? Call 852-4951.
Heartfelt thanks to all those who donate to our community Christmas Dinner program for local families in need.
Last year we helped 28 families with holiday dinner thanks to the generosity of many people. Christmas hampers, including a full turkey dinner, extra groceries and a few gifts, are organized by a team at St. Timothy's. This Prospect Road outreach is supported by Churches, Lions Club, local schools, daycare centers, community groups and private citizens.
How does it work? Those requesting help call the Parish Office (852-4580). Those wanting to donate food, cash, gifts, etc., may also call the Parish Office. (All names and information are kept confidential.) Coordinator, Helen Murphy, organizes the lists and names, matching up requests to those who are donating.
Donation sign-up lists are posted at the back of the church. Leftover grocery items and money help families throughout the winter. Deadline for donations: December 15, 2012. Families in need, call the Parish Office - 852-4580. Privacy is assured. Coordinator is Helen Murphy.
