Youth Group

posted Oct 1, 2015, 12:38 PM by Saint Timothy's   [ updated Jan 3, 2017, 12:52 PM ]

Youth group has started for this year! Please read below for a message from Sydney Caron, the youth leader. If you have any questions or would like to speak with Sydney about youth group, please contact the church  office to request her contact information. 

WELCOME MESSAGE
Our first Monday night Youth Group meeting was an introduction to what a typical night at Youth would be like. We began our night with a time of socializing, allowing an opportunity for youth to meet and greet one another. Next, we prepared for prayer by taking a 10 minute personal quiet time to listen to a worship song, pray, and rest. Then, we came together in a prayer circle, each taking turns to pray as we contributed with a response to one of the following statements: God You Are..., God I am thankful for..., God I give you..., God please be with..., and God I need... After our group prayer we discussed the importance of "Prayer Partners".  This will be a weekly activity that will provide an opportunity to pray with and for another person, and to be prayed for, weekly as we meet at Youth Group and also as our prayer partner comes to mind throughout the week. Following our time of partnered prayer we broke into groups and brainstormed discussion topics that will be explored and discussed during a weekly activity called "Table Talk" where groups of Youth will discuss a topic and share their experiences, opinions, and ideas. Next, the Youth will usually  participate in a time of listening and learning about the theme for the month. This will occur through the use of videos, books, and presentations. Following this the Youth will break into discussion groups that will be led by our leaders Lynne, Graham, Curtis, Josiah, Brittany, Dez, & Aiden. In these groups Youth will have an opportunity to further discuss the presentation, video or speaker, creating an interactive learning experience. A physical activity will follow. Snack and a time of fellowship will end the night. Youth Group ends at 9:00pm. Most Youth nights will follow this structure.

We are very excited to welcome new Youth Members! We are also welcoming and appreciating new Youth Leaders this year. Without the dedication, time, and energy of these leaders Youth Group would not be possible.

YOUTH GROUP THEME
This year the Youth will learn about the Five Marks of Mission. Throughout the year we will participate in faith building activities, mission work, and volunteer service. This year we will also hear from groups, speakers, and ministries that work in mission. Youth will be encouraged to recognize and explore their own spiritual gifts, passions, and identity in Christ as they work to find a personal way to proclaim the gospel, encourage others, transform unjust structures, respond to human need, and safeguard creation.

Church Survey

posted May 5, 2015, 1:31 PM by Saint Timothy's   [ updated Jan 3, 2017, 12:51 PM ]

St. Timothy's has been invited to use the services of “HolyCow! Consulting” to help us plan our future. The first step is to conduct a congregational assessment to provide a clear picture of who we are as a church and what directions are most important for our future. We are using the Church Assessment Tool (CAT) to help us to collect and understand the range of views that exist at St. Timothy’s and the possibilities, willingness, capacity and energy for moving our ministry into the future. This will provide key indicators of our congregational health along with areas of challenge and potential growth.

As the outcomes of this survey will be used to make plans for our future we need as much participation as possible to ensure no one group is overrepresented or underrepresented. Please make sure your voice (and those of your household) are included by having each individual complete their own survey.

The survey period is from May 5, 2015 to June 21, 2015. The will take about 10-20 minutes to complete so please set aside enough time to answer all the questions as the entire survey must be completed in one in one session. All survey responses are strictly anonymous. 

You can complete the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/StTimothyACEdmonton

Note: If you would prefer to take the assessment using a paper copy, the attached PDF can be printed, completed and dropped off at the church. Or, you can get a printed copy from  the office, or from a sidesperson on Sunday morning.

Thank you for your willingness to be a part of this congregational assessment and for helping to build St. Timothy’s future. Along with prayer and further conversations, this survey will help us see where God is calling us.

Please join us at St. Timothy's (8420 - 145 Street NW) on Sunday, March 29, 2015 at 2:00 pm for an afternoon of music (from classical to folk to contemporary) featuring vocalists Leigh Walbaum and Emily Ropchan, and pianist Jung-Suk Ryu. Concert admission is by donation with all proceeds going to support the choral scholar program. 

Leigh Walbaum has been a choral scholar and member of the choir for 3 years. She completed her Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Alberta in 2014 under the direction of Canadian mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Turnbull and internationally renowned collaborative pianist and vocal coach Shannon Hiebert. Leigh has also traveled around the globe to study music and participate in various productions. Most recently she had the opportunity to travel to Austria in the summer of 2014 to study at the Franz Schubert Institute.

Emily Ropchan has been a choral scholar and member of the choir for 2 years. Beginning at an early age Emily demonstrated a love of music and has been studying music in many forms since then. In addition to voice, Emily studies piano and has played the trumpet in the school band. 

Jung-Suk Ryu is the accompanist at St. Timothy’s Anglican Church. He completed the practical requirements for the Associateship Diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music at the age of 13, and received the full diploma in 2001. He was the principal conductor of the Ottawa Symphonic Ensemble from 2008 to 2011, a 60-member professional-amateur classical orchestra, and has been a guest conductor for choral groups such as Coro Vivo Ottawa and the Cantata Singers of Ottawa. In his “spare time,” he is the Director, Public Affairs, for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), lobbying government on matters impacting Canadians who live with blindness or partial sight.
