Membership Classes

How do you join St. Timothy’s ?

What is membership? What needs to happen to “join” our Church? The short answer is you just need to show up! Everyone is welcome join us for worship on Sunday mornings or at any of our church activities. Membership in the Church means being part of a community that is drawn ever more deeply into relationship with God through Jesus Christ. For those who are interested in making a formal commitment of membership to the Episcopal Church, and St. Timothy’s in particular,  please feel free to contact our office or Fr. Jeff and we’d be happy to talk to you more about it.

Candidates take a six-session exploration of the Christian faith  and are confirmed, received or reaffirmed by the bishop making public reaffirmation of the faith.  Each session includes a primary subject exploration and an optional 45-minute “enrichment opportunity.”  Below is a past class:

Class 1: 2:30 – 5:00 PM – The Daily Prayers of the Church/Daily Office
(Enrichment: Story of the Episcopal Church, Jamestown to Revolution)
