St. Tim's offers six different worship services. We commonly use Rite Two from the Book of Common Prayer, with additional prayers from Enriching Our Worship. Liturgical offerings are varied to provide an experience of the depth and breadth of Episcopal liturgy.
We welcome guests to our worship by offering an easy-to-use bulletin for each service. Also, you may observe people sitting, standing or kneeling at different times during the service - you are welcome to participate in any way that feels comfortable to you.
All services are conducted in the sanctuary to the right when you walk through the main doors.
Sunday 10:45 a.m. Holy Communion
For those desirous of Traditional Episcopal Liturgy, our 10:45 sung Celebration of the Holy Eucharist is right for you. The Choir of St. Timothy, soloists, and a variety of instrumentalists lend their talents with seasonal music throughout the Church Year.
"I love the music." Mary, 15 year member
"I'd describe it as warm, welcoming, inclusive, joyous." Karen, 12 year member

If you are looking for a no-fuss, meaningful worship service with a brief but inspiring message, communion for all, and nice guitar music, why not try this?

Children, including infants and toddlers, are welcome to join us, or to go to our professionally licensed and staffed nursery.

Children and Worship
St. Tim's welcomes children to worship. Some families with infants and toddlers have their children stay in the sanctuary throughout the worship service, while others use the nursery for all or part of the worship service.
Professionally Staffed Nursery
On Sunday, from 7:45 a.m. to 12:30 .pm., we have a Nursery staffed with professional, licensed child-care workers from TLC for Kids. We maintain the same care-givers 95% of all Sundays so that they may develop a relationship with your child. Special arrangements are made for Holy Days and distinctive events.
Worship Bags have been prepared for children Pre-K to Grade 3 to use during Worship Services. This “Worship Bag” has been created as an option for small hands to keep busy during the long seated portion of our service. There are various activities in each bag so please just take one per family. At the end of the service, take the “Sunday Paper” home with you so that you may talk about it with your child.
At the heart of our mission and ministry is the Sacrament of Baptism. To arrange for a Baptism, call the Rector and all necessary planning and preparation will begin. St. Timothy's generally celebrates this sacrament at a Holy Communion service, with full community participation.
To be organized well in advance of the day, the Pastor, Staff, and Wedding Coordinator will gladly provide all necessary information and facilitate the preparation. Membership at St. Timothy's is encouraged. Contact the Pastor to begin the process.
Funerals, Memorial Services, Columbarium Interments
Please let St. Timothy's know if a death occurs in your family. The Pastor and the Pastoral Care Team will provide support, counsel, and assist in the planning of a service.
