Mr. Snuffleupagus is a full-bodied Muppet character who lives with his family in a cave just off of Sesame Street. Snuffleupagus is his species as well as his last name.

His full name is Aloysius Snuffleupagus, although his friends call him Snuffy. He is eternally 4 and a half years old,[1] and celebrates his birthday on August 19. Snuffy's best friend is Big Bird, whom he affectionately calls "Bird." His favorite foods are cabbage and spaghetti. In the fifth season premiere, he revealed that he also drinks sassafras tea. He has a little sister named Alice and a friend named Rosalyn.

Mr. Snuffleupagus first appeared on Sesame Street in episode 0276, the third season premiere. When he first appeared, many of the adults assumed that he was Big Bird's imaginary friend, due to a series of coincidences and near-miss encounters that continually kept Snuffleupaguses and humans apart. Big Bird would often try to find ways for Snuffy to meet the adults, but something would always cause Snuffy to leave before the humans could see him. 

Pastor Timothy Amos Funk was born and raised in the Chambersburg area and accepted Christ at a revival service at his home church, St. John’s United Methodist Church, when he was ten years old. His father pastored the church. About 3 years later, Pastor Tim received the call to ministry. At age 18 he answered the calling, and attend Messiah College (class of ’83) and Wesley Theological Seminary (Class of ’88) to prepare for the future God laid out for him. Since then, he has served UM Churches in Potomac, Maryland, Catawissa, Felton, Carlisle and Red Lion, PA. His ordination as an Elder took place in 1990. His wife, Sharon and him have been married for 38 years and have two grown children, a daughter, Rebekkah, and a son, Jesse. Pastor Tim enjoys auto racing (drag racing, sprints and NASCAR) and walking the Gettysburg Battlefield. and most of all, he loves to fish, especially for smallmouth bass in Canada and the Susquehanna River from his kayak or my boat. Pastor Tim is looking forward to hearing the stories of how God has been at work in your life and to help you discover the next steps the Lord has for Fawn Grove UMC.
