In October of 2015, the Lowcountry Home of Hope opened its doors at 821 Central Avenue, Summerville, SC. It is a non-profit organization with the mission to provide safe shelter, food, support services, and an avenue to self-sufficiency for homeless men in our community.
St. Timothy’s church has played a consistent and supportive role since January 2016 to those experiencing temporary displacement in our community. The Lord is clear throughout scripture that how we care for the least and the lost, has eternal implications. We pray that 2017 sees the opening of a women and children’s shelter, Hope’s House.
If anyone is poor among your fellow Israelites in any of the towns of the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward them. Rather, be openhanded and freely lend them whatever they need.
St.Timothy’s is thankful for Luke and Jen Deman, who (with their son, Oscar) left us at the end of the summer to begin classes at the Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. We pray for their safety and health while they are apart from us, and that their time in Seminary will be blessed.
The expenses the Demans incur while going through Seminary are not subsidized by the diocese or by the church. St.Timothy’s has set up a fund on our online giving site for our members, friends, and supporters to make contributions to assist them during this exciting time.
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
The Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy (CCC) provides comfort and counseling for employees and families of first responders, as well as the public in the greater Charleston area.
St.Timothy’s supports the CCC with a yearly donation. Find out more about the CCC at http://coastalcrisischaplain.org/.
My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
