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.
Is there a building appraiser in the parish who could give an estimate of the Church and the Parish Hall? We are trying to get an estimate of the replacement cost of these buildings for our property insurance. If an appraiser is willing to give this estimate please speak with Peter Bourey, our Senior Warden or Ed Watson, our Junior Warden.
Join us to celebrate The Feast of St. Paul the Apostle with Holy Communion on Monday, Jan 26th at 12 noon.
Our Church School is having a Teacher’s Meeting, Sunday, Feb 15th at 10am in the Science Lab. We are in need of volunteers to teach church school, specifically our High School Students. If the spirit is calling you to share God’s word with our children please inquire by phone, e-mail, or on Sunday mornings. We have many opportunities from Nursery Backups on up to High School. Make a difference in a child’s life, right here at St. Timothy’s.
Thank you to Clarence Bunting for continuing to lead the Bible Study on Wednesday evenings. This week the group will study The First Epistle General of Saint John. The group is just beginning Chapter 3 in which Saint John describes obedience in action and love in action. The study is the type of study that persons can join at any point so bring your Bible and a friend of yours this Wednesday evening.
The Daughters of The King will host another Between-the-Services Breakfast on February 1st. It will be held in the parish hall between 10:05 and 10:45 in hopes that parishioners from both services will be able to join us. People who worship at eleven o’clock should arrive earlier than usual so they can get some of the goodies and folks from the nine o’clock service don’t need to hurry away – just come on over and join us. The theme of the breakfast will be a Valentine’s theme. All are welcome to join us.

There is an opportunity to give flowers for a particular Sunday all through 2015 (outside of Advent and Lent) by printing your name on a Sunday on the poster outside the parish office. Parishioners have given flowers for the Altar in honor of a family member, friend or loved one, in thanksgiving for a loved one’s life or an event that is especially significant, or in memory of a loved one on the anniversary of his/her death. The flowers symbolize the new life we have in Jesus Christ and come from God’s creation, so they are a great offereing and a gift that the whole parish may enjoy. The cost of the altar flowers is $90.00.
Father James would like to meet with all the students and the parents of students who are interested in Saint Michael’s Conference. He is holding two meetings on two different Sundays to accommodate more parents. Please attend the 12:30 PM meeting on Sunday, February 1st. If you are a member of Saint Timothy’s and are at least 14 years old and will be going to ninth grade in the fall of 2015, or if you are between the ages of 14 and 21, you should be attending this week-long conference. Please attend either of these meetings and find out why so many of our young people have described the Conference as “a life-changing experience”.
The Daughters of the King will hold their regularly scheduled monthly meeting on Monday, January 12th at 7 PM in the parlor. Catherine Wall, who is the president of The Bethesda Chapter of The Daughters of the King at The Church of the Good Shepherd, will be the guest speaker. She will bring two other ladies from that chapter with her to give us some insight into what they are doing in their service work for The Order. Ir promises to be an exciting evening where we are introduced to other Daughters in the Raleigh area.
