Commons Opens, New Summer Service Schedule At St. Timothy's Episcopal

Thursday, June 12, 2014

The new Outdoor Commons at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, 630 Mississippi Ave., Signal Mountain, is ready for use.

Phase 1 of the project has been completed. The hill has been terraced into multiple level areas to make sitting easy and safe. The first outdoor service will be Sunday at 9:15 a.m. This service is an informal, family-centered Rite II Eucharist, where all are invited to dress casually for summer weather and bring beach blankets or lawn chairs for sitting. The new terraces also provide some seating, so a stadium chair would also work.

The service is held outdoors weather permitting. If it rains 12 hours before the service or rain is threatened, the service is held in the nave.

Phase 2 of the project will include the construction of a permanent mountain stone altar, an access ramp and possibly an outdoor sound system.

The 8 a.m. Rite I Eucharist will continue to be offered in the chapel and the chapel will become the location of the 10:30 a.m. Rite II Eucharist for six weeks beginning Sunday. This is a full, Episcopal service with music tailored for a smaller space and congregation. The 10:30 a.m. service will return to the nave on July 27 for the combined service and remain in that space for the rest of the summer.

The summer worship service is as follows:
June 15, 22, 29, July 6, 13, 20: 8 a.m., Rite I, chapel; 9:15 a.m., Rite III, Commons; 10:30 a.m., Rite II, chapel

The City Failed To Watch The Chattanooga History Museum Dollars - And Response

The tell tale signs of the History Museum's folly have been evident for years. When I was a former member of City Council I interviewed Dr. Daryl Black, Ph.D. to determine if I should argue for or against the annual funding of his organization. His interview, the multi-year history of administrative non-performance (despite consistent repetitive funding), and a review of the organizational ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Greenholtz: A No-Brainer

I am going to make this as simple as I possibly can. There are three fine lawyers now running for Criminal Court Judge and anywhere you go there will be people who like and admire Tom Greenholtz, Boyd Patterson and Mike Little. But when we select a judge, it should never be based on popularity. That’s why Gov. Haslam picked Greenholtz over both Little and Patterson this summer to ... (click for more)
