The focus of our life together is our worship, and our worship empowers us for our service in the world. Episcopal worship is rich in symbolism and tradition while maintaining its relevance to this time, place, and culture.
Worship at St. Timothy’s is vibrant and Spirit-filled. It also reflects our belief that there are many ways to worship, pray, express our faith, and connect with God within the framework of the Book of Common Prayer.
All services are celebrations of Holy Communion, and each has a distinctive style. We invite you to experience all of them.
Sunday morning services
We have two Sunday morning services – 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
- 8:30 a.m. Service: A quiet and contemplative service with a touch of music
- 9:15 a.m. Coffee hour: Time for all to socialize and have a light snack and beverage
- 10:00 a.m. Service: A blend of traditional and contemporary music and liturgy
- 11:10 a.m. Education time: Fun, educational classes for all. Ends by 11:45 a.m.
Sunday Evening Worship (a trial service)
First Sunday of the Month starting at 5 p.m. (October 6, November 3, December 1; this is a trial service for 3 months)
The service will last approximately 45 minutes with Darita (our Music Ministry Associate) picking and playing contemporary music. The whole service will be projected (but there might still be music with notes on paper for those who know how to sing). This service helps families create a deeper community with more youth fellowship and events. It is open to everyone, but middle and senior high youth will get priority on serving in worship. There are some great serving opportunities for younger ones too, like Gospel procession, bringing up bread, and ushering. There will be food after worship! It will be a complete worship experience for all ages.
Childcare is provided for the 10:00 a.m. service for children three years old and younger in the Nursery Room in the Parish Hall (first door on the right as you enter the front doors) on Sunday mornings from 9:45 a.m. to 11:45 p.m.
Wednesday morning service
10:30 a.m. – A quiet celebration of Holy Communion. A healing service is offered on the first Wednesday of each month.
Combined Community Services
Several times during the year, Saint Timothy’s offers a single, combined Community Service in lieu of our regular three worship services. The Community Services are at 10:00 a.m. On these Sundays, the Good News Hour and Adult Formation may or may not be held at 9:30 a.m.

First Wednesday evening of each month – “Taize”(on hiatus)
7:00 p.m. — A Taize service is offered on the first Wednesday of each month. This contemplative Christian prayer service includes simple, repetitive song and chant, meditative scripture readings, and periods of spacious silence in a setting of soft candlelight that invites deep communion with God.
This ecumenical form of Christian prayer originated about 60 years ago in a small, monastic village named Taize, located in Southeastern France, and continues there today, drawing Christians from all over the world. It has quickly spread to churches worldwide. Taize is on hiatus until further notice.
