They devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching.
St. Timothy’s in five years is settled in with its new rector, relieved search and transitions are over. Vibrant and challenging sermons are preached on a regular basis, sermons that inspire reflection, discussion and service within and outside St. Tim’s. Regularly offered Bible study classes encourage self and community rededication to God and worship of God. Likewise, the community meets on a regular basis to discuss and share community concerns, blessings and challenges. No topic is off limits. There is discussion of St. Tim’s offering its parish life as a paradigm of worship, study and service to the diocese and wider Church. Individual and group spiritual direction experiences enrich Covenant Group life
Many members of St. Timothy’s point to Bible study as one of their most transformative faith experiences. We are a Biblically-literate congregation that includes parishioners who have taken a 2-year Bethel teacher training course. Many of those teachers have taught 40-week classes on the Old and New Testaments called “The Book.” But it has been a while since we have been able to recapture that excitement and commitment to scriptural study. We are seeking a leader who will challenge us to a greater understanding of the power of God’s Word both in sermons and in classes. We are ready and longing to hear messages of importance and relevance that challenge our faith and inspire us to mission.
