Pastors' Message

Thanks for taking the time to look at who we are and what we have to offer.

St. Timothy’s is a congregation committed to faithfully preaching and teaching the Word of God and actively supporting each of its members in their faith.

We provide a variety of activities and opportunities for your involvement and support.

Throughout the year, the specifics of these web pages will change. You'll find information about our shared life together as a community of faith. But one thing will never change, and that is the love God has for you in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Feel free to take a look at what we offer and to contact us if there is anything we can do to support you in your relationship with God..

Church Council

Consisting of members elected by the congregation, the Church Council is the decision-making body of the church.

Comprised of several Leadership Teams, the Council meets the first Tuesday of each month to effect policies, approve reports and consider the total church program.

The Council also prepares the budget for the congregation's action, and considers other major items for referral to the Annual Congregational Meeting.


Our Identity
"St. Timothy's Lutheran Church is a community of faith, created by God in Christ Jesus, empowered by the Holy Spirit, called and sent to bear witness to God's creative, saving and life giving activity in the world."

Our History
The congregation began in 1961. Click here for a pictorial journey from the earliest days of St. Timothy's to the present.   In February 2011, St. Timothy's became a congregation of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). For an overview of the Affiliation process that led to that membership, click here. For a video introducing the NALC, click here.

Our Beliefs
We believe and confess one Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
We believe the Bible to be the revealed and inspired Word of God, and the authoritative source of our proclamation, faith, and life.

Our Mission
To remain faithful to the Great Commission ("Go and make disciples," Matt 28:19-20) and the Great Commandment ("Love one another," Matt 2:37-40) of our Lord Jesus, in order that His purposes be carried through us. 

Our Vision
On June 3, 2007, the congregation of St Timothy Lutheran Church voted to adopt a "2020 Vision." The double meaning of the title is deliberate: the vision is for the next 13 years, up to the year 2020; and it is the clearest picture the congregational leadership has at present of how God is leading us to grow in the years ahead. The vision statement reads as follows:

  We are a connected family of believers
         worshiping God
         growing in faith
         committed to serving
   with a mission of bringing new believers to Jesus Christ
