History of St. Timothy’s
St. Timothy’s was founded as a mission of the Diocese of Ohio. The new mission was indebted to St. Paul’s, Maumee for most of its original members choosing Saint Timothy as its patron and name. Saint Timothy was a young associate of Saint Paul.
The members began worshiping in March of 1962 at the First Presbyterian Church in Perrysburg. They continued meeting there until March 1,1964, when the congregation moved to the newly constructed church.
St. Timothy’s experienced remarkable growth. By 1969, the congregation attained financial self-sufficiency and was granted parish status by diocesan convention in 1970. In the summer of 1970, St. Timothy’s completed the Rectory used for clergy residence. Since then, St. Timothy’s has undergone two major expansions in 1985 and 1995.
St. Timothy’s is located on several wooded acres. It’s New England-like architecture features a large brick wall which surrounds the tree-filled courtyard. The courtyard has hosted receptions, worship services, fellowship, and outreach activities.
