Discussions have begun on what it looks like to resume meeting together in person. The staff and I have been discussing the requirements from the Anglican Diocese of South Carolina. The Wardens and Vestry will meet this week as well. We don't have a lot of information yet, and nothing has been decided, but I did want to put the requirements from the Diocese in front of you so that you could begin to process what this will look like along with the Vestry and staff.

These are the requirements from the Bishop's office:

Communion in one kind (bread only), received in the handMasks required inside buildings. Those leading worship (celebrant, lay readers, musicians and singers) may remove their masks to exercise their specific roles if adequate distance from parishioners makes this safe.Minimum 6 foot distance between family un…

Good evening, everybody. Here are the links to tonight's worship services:

Thanks for everybody that contributed to the reading, the music, and the prayers. I really do appreciate all the work that goes into helping pull these videos together every week.

Also, as I mention in tonight's introduction to worship, the Bishop has begun to grant permission for congregations to begin meeting again starting next week. This is certainly a complex issue, and there are still a lot of questions surrounding what it will look like to be able to come together for worship while keeping everybody safe. Rates of infection are still increasing in South Carolina, and that is projected to continue as restrictions begin to fall away.

The Vestry and Staff are currently reviewing the guidelines set by the Bishop for resuming public worship. I would ask that you be in pr…

Food Distribution Saturday

This Saturday we were able to provide meat, produce, and groceries to 33 families in need. This is in addition to the medicine, school supplies, and other support we've been able to provide in the past month to those that have contacted the church. I want to thank all the volunteers that came out - we had to turn away volunteers for a second month in a row to maintain safe social distancing! I am so proud to continue working with you all to proclaim the Good News, not just in word but in deed as well.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you …

Wednesday Night Bible Study

I hope you'll be able to join us tonight for Bible Study. We've been studying Lament, specifically how Lament (expressions of grief) give us a vocabulary to populate our own prayers.  Tonight we'll begin a small study in the book of Ecclesiastes. We begin at 6:30. Email me directly if you'd like a link to join us via Zoom.

Family Worship Service

I'm excited to announce that St. Timothy's has added a family prayer service for those who might want to worship with younger children. This has been an offering of love from the Hamilton family, and I couldn't be more grateful for all the work they've put into making this come together.



We hope to be able to offer this every week as we continue to ride out the pandemic. If you'd be willing to help by offering a prayer, lesson, or song for the service, please reach out to me at Luke@St-Timothys.org
