COFFEE HOUR AT ST. TIMOTHY’S
If you like Coffee and Pastry, Coffee Hour is the place you will want to be after worship. We meet in Craine Hall for a variety of pastries, regular and decaf coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Coffee Hour is a good place to linger over your favorite beverage and pastry, meet new people and catch up with your friends. It is widely rumored that we Episcopalians love our coffee, so please join us. It is a great start to your week.
Bible Study: for a faith community committed to knowing the Word of God more fully. Though the Bible was written between 2000 and 4000 years ago, its message is vital today. Sometimes, however, passages need to be viewed in their context or from a broader view of many related scriptures. A facilitator helps bring historical background and relevant scriptures to the passages being studied. This background generally precedes an interactive discussion of interpretations, applications and relevance to our faith community. This knowledge leads to both deeper faith and the ability to mold our lives more closely to Jesus. All are welcome. Join anytime.
Several times throughout the year, St. Timothy’s hosts discussion series that focus on a particular book, theme, or religious season. Past series themes/topics have included:
- Theology and Spirituality in Popular Film
- A Hidden Wholeness by Parker Palmer
- Agape Meals
- Art explorations
- Original Blessing by Matthew Fox
- The Language of God by Francis S. Collins
Meetings are informal and held at St. Timothy’s on Wednesday nights from 6 – 8pm. All are welcome to attend the discussion series, whether you are a long-time member of the church or a new attendee who may still have questions and doubts on your spiritual journey. The discussion group is a safe space for attendees to explore their faith, share their experiences, and educate themselves on new or different ways of thinking in a safe, loving, and non-judgmental atmosphere. If you have questions or would like more details, please email Kelly Nickson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Women’s Guild is a group of women committed to deepening our relationships, providing meaningful experiences for parishioners to grow together, and planning fund-raising opportunities. Recent events include Sunday meals at City Barbeque in Greenwood and planning a Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser. All women are welcome to join us at any time.

UNION OF BLACK EPISCOPALIANS/UBE
The Union of Black Episcopalians (UBE) stands in the continuing tradition of more than 200 years of Black leadership in the Episcopal Church, beginning with the establishment of St. Thomas Episcopal Church by Absalom Jones in 1794. The mission of the UBE is to unify the diverse cultures, concerns and gifts of Black Episcopalians by providing preparation and encouragement for living the Baptismal Covenant and fully participating in the mission and governance of The Episcopal Church. Members of this diocese, including members of St. Timothy’s, are in the process of establishing a chapter for this diocese.
