Advent and Christmas

Worship opportunities & other special events at Timothy to help you celebrate Advent and Christmas.

Advent

Join us for Midweek Advent worship on Wednesdays at 5pm and 7pm (December 2, 9, and 16).


The 5pm service will be livestreamed, and available for viewing on our YouTube channel anytime afterwards.


We will not be hosting meals between the services, in order to keep with social distancing guidelines. 


Our theme for the Advent season is the Jessie Tree: Promises and Fulfillment in Christ. We belong to God’s family through Jesus. This Advent, we'll consider His great story anew. The Jesse Tree is filled with symbols telling the story of Jesus from creation to His second coming. Jesus is the Seed of Jesse’s tree. He is the Root of Jesse’s tree. He is the Life of Jesse’s tree. And He is the Firstfruit of Jesse’s tree. Join us as we explore God’s promises and salvation plan using these symbols of Jesus’ victory from Creation to the Cross.

Advent Photo-A-Day

In 2020, Advent begins on Sunday, November 29. Join the Advent Photo-a-Day project and share your pictures as part of Timothy's unique take on the traditional Advent Calendar.


Participants are encouraged to share one photo each day that illustrates a word drawn from the daily lectionary readings or other seasonal resources. Share your photos on Instagram or Facebook, using the hashtags #TimothySTL and #TimothyAdvent2020


NOTE: Only photos shared publicly will show up in hashtag search results!

Christmas Eve & Christmas Day

A note about our Christmas Eve Worship Services: All services will be exactly the same, with the same special music, candlelight, and other things that make our gathering together on this holy night so special.


We hope this will help our church members, as well as any guests and visitors, feel comfortable attending in person if that's what they desire. You won't miss out on the candlelight if you come to the 5pm service! You don't need to come to all three services to hear special music or a different message you'd miss otherwise.


We want those gathering for worship to feel comfortable and safe; we also want to care for our musicians and the many others who put so much effort into these special services. Please join us, in person or online!
