Dr. Millie Beane was the Director of Music at Carter Church for many years and retired from the position in 2017.  However, this spring the SPRC invited Millie to return to the church for an interim year as the church transitions to a new pastor and moves from online worship to in-person worship. Millie directs the Chancel Choir, whose singers participate in worship every Sunday from September through June, and the Joyful Ringers, who play for Sunday worship approximately once per month.  As a choral conductor, Millie conducted concerts by the Interfaith Choir in Needham numerous times; she also directed the Seminary Singers of Boston University School of Theology for twelve years.  In addition, Millie served as a public school administrator for the Needham Public Schools, retiring in 2006.   Millie and her husband Earl live in Linden Ponds, an independent living retirement community in Hingham.  Earl sings bass in the Chancel Choir.  Millie and Earl's daughter Ruthie and her husband Reggie have twin girls, Cece and Jackie, now nine and in fourth grade.

Greetings! I am Tim, I go by he/him pronouns, I am a husband to Danielle and a father to four: Melody (2) and our newborn Lilybelle (1.5 weeks at the time of this bio), and my two oldest from a previous marriage: Elijah (6) and Silas (5). When not working or with family, you will most often find me playing an instrument, reading a book from one of my favorite authors, or playing video games with friends.

I started following Christ in 3rd grade through Isaiah 54:10 which proclaimed God’s love no matter how big things would get. Over the next 24 years, my faith and walk with God have seen many ups and downs, but through it, all God has made a few things clear: His love and forgiveness transcends all understanding and truly has the power to do miraculous and impossible things in our lives both personally and collectively. The example of Jesus’ mission and commission to believers pushes against the grain of our culture, comfort, and expectations, and God will do things in His timing and not mine (though if I am patient and wait on Him, what He has in store is exactly what is needed and far better than I could have imagined or planned).

In 2015 I graduated from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary with a Master's in Divinity. I have served in a variety of ministry roles and positions since high school, though the most recent positions as a pastor for youth and children, and hospitality were the ones that spoke the most to me in seeing God’s work in people in the church and in community. After a couple of years away from the ministry, I am excited to see what God has in store for us in this coming season together!
