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.
The Parish Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, December 7th following a sung service at 10 AM. NOTICE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE SERVICE ON THAT DAY AND IT’S AT 10 AM.
To vote at the Annual Meeting, one must be an adult (at least 16 years old) confirmed Communicant. The two major items of business at the meeting are to elect the Vestry and to accept the reports from the organizations in the Parish. Reports should be no more than one double-spaced typewritten page; we want to have copies of all of the reports available before the meeting. All Parish organizations should submit a report, including the Altar Guild, Church School, Choir, Layreaders, Acolytes, Youth Group, Pastoral Care Committee, North Raleigh Ministries, The Daughters of the King, Ushers, Men’s Fellowship and St. Timothy’s School.
Kevin Bodiford, Bob Elsea, Mike Lewis, Ed Watson and Father James will represent Saint Timothy’s on Friday, November 21st and Saturday, November 22nd at the Annual Diocesan Convention. They will vote at the legislative sessions, hear speakers from around the Diocese and other Anglican provinces and hear reports from the organizations around the Diocese. We thank them taking time from their work and family lives to represent Saint Timothy’s in this way. Please remember them in your prayers.
After an entertaining movie night, we will begin our study of The First Letter of John on Wednesday, November 19th. Clarence Bunting will begin the study with an introduction of the epistle. Please bring your Bibles and join us at 6:30 PM in the parlor.
The Youth Group will meet on Sunday, November 16th at 4 PM in the parlor. All 6th-12th graders are welcome to an evening of fun and fellowship with a discussion topic and planning for upcoming Christmas events. Snacks will be provided.
#GivingTuesday is a national day of giving and is observed on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving and Black Friday, this year December 2nd, 2014. #GivingTuesday first launched in 2012 to encourage conspicuous compassion rather than conspicuous consumption during the holidays.
St. Timothy’s Church School will host a Food Drive during the month of November for North Raleigh Ministries and Backpack Buddies delivering the items on #GivingTuesday. Starting Nov. 2nd, please bring in non-perishable food items or look for our table set up at coffee hour to purchase items from our Sunday school children for donation. For a list of the most needed items please click on the red #GivingTuesday graphic below. For questions or to volunteer please contact Sarah Culton at email@example.com or 919-787-7590.

We are off to a great start with our “Turn on Your Light” campaign. We have received 144 pledge cards and are on our way to our goal of over 225 pledges. To follow up with the remaining parishioners, young and old, who have yet to pledge, we are mailing a pledge card and return envelope On Monday, November 10th. On Thursday, November 13th, beginning at 6 PM, some members of the Vestry and Father James will attempt to call everyone for whom we have yet to receive a pledge. It is important for the welfare of Saint Timothy’s that everyone makes a pledge and honors it. We will be able to reach out to more people in many new ways, and our programs will be enhance, but only if we all complete and return pledge cards can we keep Saint Timothy’s light shining.
Adult Bible Study has completed its most recent study of “The Gospel According to Saint Luke”. On Wednesday, November 12th at 6:30 PM, we will have one of our Movie Nights where we will enjoy a movie, snacks and drinks. The movie will be Heaven is for Real. One advertising outlet describes the movie this way, “Heaven is for Real is the true story of a four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who experienced heaven during emergency surgery. He talks about looking down to see a doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe, but soon the evidence was very clear.” Come bring a friend and enjoy one of our movies grounded in the Christina Faith.
The churches up and down Six Forks Road will gather at 7 PM on Tuesday, November 25th at Saint Mark’s Methodist Church, 4801 Six Forks Road for our Community Thanksgiving Service. We will have a combined choir from the churches, sing hymns of praise for all God gives to us, hear the Work of God preached and enjoy the fellowship of the faithful from our neighboring churches.
There will be a meeting of the Newcomers Committee on Sunday, November 16th at 10 AM. All who are volunteering to greet on Sunday mornings and others interested in this ministry are invited to attend. Please bring your ideas, successes, areas of improvement and other suggestions to this meeting. We will meet in the Science Lab of the Kindergarten building (the building on the left as you exit the kitchen) and will plan to dismiss by 10:50 AM so that you can meet your other Sunday obligations. Thanks you for your involvement and support of this important ministry at Saint Timothy’s.
The Closing Ceremonies for the 2015 Stewardship Campaign were held on Sunday, October 26th from 5 to 7 PM. Parishioners enjoyed an international dinner of lasagna, chicken curry, Greek salad and a variety of desserts. Team Constantinople was the team with the most gold medals for turning in their pledge cards. Congratulations to Father Jonathan Mason for winning the $500 Visa gift card! Thank you to everyone who returned a pledge card and to the Team Captains who volunteered to make phone calls and remind parishioners to turn in their pledge.
If you have not turned in your pledge card, it is not too late to do so. Pledge cards are located in the narthex. You can also contact Debbie in the parish office at 919-787-7590, and a pledge card will be mailed to you. Please renew your commitment to our church and “Turn On Your Light”.
