- from the Baptismal Covenant
Jesus called his disciples to give, forgive, teach, and heal in his name.
We are empowered by the Spirit to bless everyone we meet, practicing generosity and compassion, and proclaiming the Good News of God in Christ with hopeful words and selfless actions.
When we incorporate the practice of blessing others into our lives, we are putting our love into action by becoming the Good News for others. Through service, we can share our stories of blessing and invite others to join us on Christ's Way of Love.
At St. Timothy's, we have three organized ways to serve:
"And now Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do," one of the lines from our post-Communion prayer, indicates that we are not to simply worship in the Church, but to go outside its walls and strive to bring the reconciliation of Christ to all people. Find out more about how St. Timothy's spreads God's love in the world outside our community on our Outreach Ministries page.
We are also called to care for one another. In the church, we refer to this type of care as "pastoral," derived from the Biblical references to the Christian community as a flock of sheep, with Christ as the shepherd. At St. Timothy's, we are dedicated to supporting each other through prayer and other outreach ministries.
Our Pastoral Care Team regularly reaches out to each member of the parish, and our Card Care Team stays in touch with the elderly and sick among us.
If you have a pastoral issue and need to speak with a priest, please contact the church office.
Our corporate worship services require participation from a broad range of lay persons - from the Altar Guild's preparation for the service, to the Choir's contributions to music, to readers and acolytes. Our Sunday Servants pages gives details on each group and how they play a part in our weekly worship services.
