It may come as a surprise for some to learn that though there are large Episcopal Cathedrals in urban centers around the country, as well as very small mission churches, St. Timothy’s is within the definition of an average Episcopal Church in terms of size. Founded as a mission church in 1974 and granted parish status in 1980, St. Timothy’s has a substantial presence as a community of faith in Calhoun and Gordon County.
Worship services are every Sunday at 11:00 AM.
What we Do
Like all Episcopal Churches St. Timothy’s is Christ and Eucharistically centered. Episcopalians do not find their identity in a set of beliefs or “confessions” that must be acknowledged in order to be accepted. Rather we find our common ground in the Eucharist (Holy Communion). We gather as a faith community to worship together, pray together, commune together, learn together, and grow together in our personal as well as shared spiritual journey. We embrace the theology that says all Christians are called into a life where we strive to understand what it might mean to live a life wherein we love like Jesus loved.
Our worship is grounded in the Book of Common Prayer – the vast majority of which comes directly from the Bible. We find our identity in coming together for worship where we acknowledge the reality of God, the primacy of Jesus as our guide and teacher, and our desire to live lives that are pleasing to God.
Whether you are a life-long Episcopalian or new to the Episcopal Church, we would welcome you into our community of faith; a community of persons on the journey of becoming the persons God calls us to be. We hope to see you soon.
To emulate Christ and to be a loving and caring family to the community and to ourselves.
Our historic building is located about three blocks from the Gordon County Court House, just off Wall Street or US Highway 41 in downtown Calhoun.
In addition to street parking, there is a parking lot behind the church.
