Things to Know:

1. Worship Services
We offer a variety of services at St. Timothy's which appeal to the varied interests of our congregation. Communion is usually on the first and third weekends each month at all services. 
We practice open communion at St. Timothy’s. The Lord’s Table is open to all who believe that in the bread and the wine our Lord Jesus is present with us, sins are forgiven, faith is renewed, and the Holy Spirit is at work to draw us closer to God. If this is your confession, we invite you to respond to the invitation to our Lord’s table, confessing your sin, trusting that He is present in the Sacrament, and believing that to receive Him is to receive God’s forgiveness in your life. Grape juice is also offered as an alternative to wine.  If you desire grape juice instead of wine, please indicate this to the server by raising your index finger.

Sunday at 8:15 am - Traditional
First service on Sunday is traditional. If you enjoy all the old hymns and standard liturgy, then this is the service for you. It is followed by a coffee and treat social.

Sunday at 9:45 am - Blended
The second service is what we call a blended service. Elements of the traditional service are combined with the atmosphere of the contemporary service.

Sunday at 11:15 am - Contemporary
The late service is a contemporary service led by the worship team. All music sung and performed reflects the most recent trends evidenced across America.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me ... for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these" (Mark 10:14).   At St. Timothy's we seek to follow Jesus' hospitality toward children and encourage their participation in our worship services. We are also intentional about creating an atmosphere in which every person is able to experience a meaningful time of worship. Nursery care is provided for children ages four and younger.
