That may look like building water wells in Kenya, it may look like bringing a meal to an ill neighbor, or it may even look like where you currently work. We each have a mission: we all have been sent. Our goal is to partner with you so you can discover your “sentness.” Below are most, but not necessarily all, of the missional fields where the congregation of St. Timothy UMC are being sent. The Missions committee meets the first Thursday of every month, and all are invited to attend. For more information on these mission fields, or if you have questions or ideas, contact Rev. Sam Hubbard at shubbard@sttimothyumc.org.
