All are Welcome!

St Timothy's belongs to the Diocese of East Carolina, the Episcopal Church, and the greater world wide Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church embraces a diverse people united by the common recognition of "Scripture, Tradition, and Reason" as authoritative in all that we say and do. We are a church that encourages ongoing study, individual and communal, and open discussion. We don't expect everyone to agree but we do expect mutual respect for one another as we journey to become one in spirit. In our baptismal convenient we promise to "respect the dignity of every human being." Our source of liturgy, sacramental rites, prayers, and theology is found in "The Book of Common Prayer."

Our church offers two traditional Rite II Episcopal worship services with celebration of Holy Eucharist (Communion) each Sunday. Our 8:00 am service is without music and offers a small group atmosphere. At the 10:15 am service, music is added with the organ, Chancel Choir, and Worship Ensemble. A reading of Bible scripture from the Old Testament, New Testament, and Gospel are read at each service. A sung Compline service is offered on Sunday evenings at 8:00 pm.

With each season of the year liturgy styles change and special additional services may be offered. The seasonal changes are most visibly noted in our altar hangings and banners. Lay members participate in the Sunday services in a variety of ways. Our nursery is staffed with two full-time caregivers during the 10:15 am service for children, ages four and under. Parents may choose to have their children come into the service for Holy Communion. Following both Sunday morning services is the opportunity for light refreshments and conversation.

Our Diocesan Bishop is Rt. Rev. Rob Skirving and the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal church is the Most Reverend Michael Curry.
