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 PM on Sundays.
Our first night to dine out at PDQ (People Dedicated to Quality) was such a success that the people at PDQ would like us to host another evening. Please plan to take yourself and your family or friends to dine out at PDQ for the evening on Thursday, January 2nd any time between 4 and 10 PM. The restaurant will give Saint Timothy’s 10 percent of the proceeds from the sales between those hours. The more people who come, the more Saint Timothy’s will benefit. PDQ is located at 6305 Falls of the Neuse in Sutton Square Shopping Center.
PDQ restaurants offer fast-paced service in a casual dining atmosphere. Their menu includes fresh chicken and turkey accompanied by their made-in-house sides of hand-cut fries, homemade blueberry coleslaw, and freshly sliced apples with toffee dip. You can visit their website at eatpdq.com.
On Sunday, December 22nd, after the 11 AM service, we will need many hands to hang the greens, set up the Christmas Creche, put lights on the tree and do everything else we need to do to be ready for Christmas Eve and welcome in Our Lord at the First Mass of Christmas. The more hands we have from the “little elves”, the faster the work will go, and the better it will look. This year we really need to use our time well as the Choir begins their rehearsal for the Christmas masses at 2 PM that afternoon. In the words of John Heyward, Many hands make light work. If we can count on you to help, please place your name on the poster outside the Parish Office. Thank you!
We have parishioners who would very much like to attend Sunday services but need rides to and from the Church. If you live on or near Litchford Road, Sandy Forks Road or Saint Mary’s Street and would like to volunteer to offer a ride to a fellow parishioner, please see Father James.
Our Youth Group decorated the Angel Tree for the Parish in November. If you adopted an Angel for Christmas, please purchase the items listed on the tag for the child in need. The monetary amount should be around $50.00, and families are welcome to join together to purchase the items. Bring the unwrapped gifts and Angel Tag to the Parish gift wrapping party which will be held at 5:30 PM on Sunday, December 8th. If you took an Angel that did not have a specific child but was a request for stocking stuffers, just bring those items to the Church on December 8th, and the Youth Group will put them in Christmas gift bags for each child. There will be soup, hot chocolate and desserts. If you have any questions regarding the Angel Tree or your Angel Tag, or if you would like to make a monetary donation, please contact Jeanette Lewis at 919-781-0735.
If you didn’t get a chance to adopt an Angel from the Angel Tree, we were contacted about one more who can be adopted. If you are willing to adopt this Angel, please call Jeanette Lewis at 919-781-0735.
Our Church School presents a Christmas Pageant every year during the Family Service at 5:30 PM on Christmas Eve. This is a long standing tradition for our children, and we hope that everyone will be able to take part. The cast will be ages Pre-K through 4th grade with reading parts for Middle and High School students. If you will be here Christmas Eve and have children who would like to participate, please contact Susan Patton at 919-274-2222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Adult Bible Study will not meet on Wednesday, November 27th but will resume on Wednesday, December 4th at 7 PM in the Parlor. Clarence Bunting will continue to lead our study of The Gospel According to Saint Luke. Please bring your Bible and join us.
The Parish Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, December 8th following a sung service at 10 AM. NOTICE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE SERVICE ON THAT DAY AND IT’S AT 10 AM.

Please help us help those who want to stay warm this winter. Warmth For Wake collects, splits and delivers firewood to families in need for winter heating. Our Men’s Fellowship members, with the assistance of Tom Sturtevant, volunteer one Saturday per month helping with this worthy cause. You do not need to be a member of the Men’s Fellowship to lend a hand. The place to go is 7044 Wildlife Trail (off Carpenter Pond Rd.) in Raleigh from 8:30 AM until noon. Tom provides coffee and doughnut holes when you arrive. Please wear work gloves, goggles, etc. for working with firewood and wood splitters. Bring a pickup truck and/or trailer if you have one to help with hauling the firewood. We can help on the following Saturdays: December 7th, January 4th, February 1st and March 1st.
