One of the primary goals of St. Timothy's is to provide a worship environment which encourages a sense of the Lord's presence. We seek to provide opportunities for the expression of this sacred worship through a variety of means. The celebration of the Holy Eucharist, Wednesday evening study groups and special seminars, and mid-week services are but some of these opportunities.


ACOLYTES:

Acolytes are those involved with the ministry of assisting the priest at the Altar of God. Both adults and young persons who are interested in this ministry may begin receiving training to assist at the altar as early as the 3rd or 4th grade. They serve as torch bearers or crucifiers

 

ALTAR GUILD:

The beauty and majesty of the altar is enhanced by the diligent effort of the Altar Guild. The members of the guild ensure that the altar is prepared and the sanctuary is in order before and after each worship service. They iron the linens and supervise the decoration and appointment of the church. It is their responsibility to also prepare the church for any special services held throughout the year. 

Rachael Nyonpon reading a passage from the New TestamentLAY-READERS/LECTORS:

Our worship is a blend of talents and voices, Lay-readers/Lectors assist the priest in proclaiming God's Word to his people. Each week they read the Old Testament and New Testament lessons and lead the congregation in a response psalm. On occasion they will assist the priest in the reading of the Holy Gospel when a more dramatized reading is preferred. The reading of the Passion on Palm Sunday is the most appropriate time of the year for such a reading.

CHALICE ADMINISTRATORS:

 Lay Eucharistic Ministers (or "CAs) are licensed by the Bishop to
 administer the consecrated elements of the Eucharist.  Lay Eucharistic
 Ministers may be licensed to administer the consecrated bread and wine
 at any celebration of the Eucharist in the absence of a sufficient number
 of  priests and or deacons to assist the celebrant.  This ministry is
 understood to be an extraordinary ministry, and is not to take the place
 of the ministry of priests and deacons concerning the administration of
 the Eucharist.  Historically, specially licensed lay readers administered
 the chalice at the Eucharist and were know as "chalice bearers."
 These
 commissioned lay persons serve each week at the 9:00 am service and
 at any additional services as needed.

LAY EUCHARISTIC VISITORS:
 
These persons have a very unique ministry among our family. They assist the priest by taking the sacrament of Holy Communion directly from our congregational worship to those who are sick or home bound. This is a ministry of uniting the Body of Christ together, both those present at worship and those of our extended family. LEVs assigned for any particular week will try to visit any parishioner who has requested a visit. 
 

USHERS:

Each week a dedicated group of people ensures that everyone receives a warm welcome and assistance in seating for our worship. They also see to it that each person has a bulletin that lists the readings, music, and the Order of Service. These people then assist in collecting the offering and directing people to the altar rail for communion.  Some are taller than others . . .
 


Birthday & Anniversary Blessings:

Every Sunday, those celebrating birthdays and anniversaries are invited to come forward and receive a blessing.

 

 

 

 

 

Prayers of the People:

Each Sunday, one of our members reads prayers and the congregation responds.  These prayers span a wide range of needs for people, problems, and issues.
