Season of Renewal

Pastor Rachael will be away on sabbatical during July, August, and September. She will be reflecting, studying, traveling, spending time with her family, and “lingering in the beauty, joy, hope, promise and grace of life in relationship with God and each other”. During this time, we have planned a series of celebrations and events that will provide the congregation with our own glimpse of the sabbatical experience – and embrace a Season of Renewal within our community.

We are extremely grateful for the kindness of the Lilly Endowment Clergy Renewal Program, which has awarded St. Timothy’s a generous grant that will cover many of Pastor and the congregation’s sabbatical costs. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
