Saint Timothy’s Episcopal Church is a traditional, welcoming, and scripture based place of worship that leads to salvation through the celebration of the sacraments, service, fellowship, and outreach.
Our strengths are our adherence to basic Biblical Christianity, our faithfulness to the Anglican tradition, our diverse congregation, and our support of a fine Parochial School.
Saint Timothy’s is located in the North Hills area of Raleigh, NC. Holy Communion is celebrated at 9 AM and 11 AM on Sundays.
Please mark your calendars for the Opening Ceremony of our Stewardship Campaign on Sunday, September 28th. We are putting lots of plans in place and will present all of the exciting details later. For now, please know that if you have volunteered to be a Team Captain, then you may attend a Team Captain’s Meeting on Sunday, September 14th after the 9 AM service or on Sunday, September 21st after the 11 AM service. We’re looking forward to an inspiring, uplifting and very successful Stewardship Campaign this fall!
The Pastoral Care Committee will meet on Thursday, August 21st in the parlor at 3 PM. All members of the church are welcome to join us.
The honor paid to Saint Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, goes back to the earliest days of the Church. Two Gospels tell of the manner of Christ’s birth, and the familiar Christmas story testifies to the Church’s conviction that He was born of a virgin. Mary was the person closest to Jesus in His most impressionable years, and the words of the Magnificat, as well as her humble acceptance of the divine will, bear more than an accidental resemblance to the Lord’s Prayer and the Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount.
Later devotion has claimed many things for Saint Mary which cannot be proved from Holy Scripture. What we can believe is that one who stood in so intimate a relationship with the incarnate Son of God on earth must have the place of highest honor in the eternal life of God. A paraphrase of an ancient Greek hymn expresses this belief in very familiar words: O higher than the cherubim, more glorious than the seraphim, lead their praises, alleluia. (Lesser Feasts and Fasts, p. 294)
