St. Timothy’s Church is in the heart of Wilson, North Carolina, the seat of Wilson County. St. Timothy’s is a welcoming, liturgical, prayer-centered church; a family church, where fellowship, outreach, hospitality, and service define our activities.
As a worshipping community since 1856, we have welcomed several local groups of believers, most notably the Greek Orthodox community and our two sister congregations, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and La Iglesia de La Guadalupana.
Our members seek to know God’s love and to extend the kindness and generosity of Christ to those around us. We wish to be builders of community. Through service to others, we will continue to nurture our personal bonds and to strengthen our connection with God and the world around us.
We are committed to our spiritual development as individuals and to the vibrancy of the parish. As we adopt new leadership, we hope to inspire and educate our youth through meaningful discussion, play, and music more effectively. We strive to engage parishioners of all ages and backgrounds so that together we may experience the supportive and healing love of God in Christ. We celebrate our history, and we are ready, with God’s help, our Rector’s guidance, and your leadership in forming young Christians to step into the future.
