St. Titus’ is a warm, welcoming community of folks who strive to follow Jesus. Founded in 1885, we are proud of our roots as a historically Black congregation. Today we are just as proud to be a diverse community where absolutely everyone is welcome. We invite you to explore this website to learn more about us. And, when we’re able to gather in person again, we hope you will visit, either for a worship service or for one of our other activities. We’d love to have you join us on the journey.
Grace and peace to you,
St. Titus’ is a diverse and growing community committed to walking with Christ by serving others, pursuing justice and welcoming all.
God dreams for St.Titus’ to be sacred ground where all of God’s children experience the unconditional love of Jesus. In faithful response, we will offer Spirit-filled worship where people from diverse backgrounds encounter God. As an intergenerational community, we will deepen our faith through sharing scripture, Christian tradition and our own experience. We will be open and authentic with one another, and respond to the needs of our neighbors with compassion and creativity. Our passion for God’s justice and peace will compel us to become agents for social, political, and economic transformation. St. Titus’ will be Beloved Community.
In response to the rising numbers of COVID cases, The Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina has suspended all in-person worship. All worship services are now online. See our service times below. If you have questions or concerns please contact St. Titus’ rector, the Rev. Stephanie Yancy, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of St. Titus’ observance of Black History Month, fabric artist Colleen Hintz will offer a presentation on the secret code quilts created to give visual messages to slaves escaping to freedom via the Underground Railroad. The quilt blocks allowed for communication among slaves even as the slave owners forbid it. Ms. Hintz will tell us about the message contained in each block, using her own beautifully handmade quilt blocks. The presentation will be on Sunday, February 21 at 3:00 p.m. Click here to view the presentation: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86001954552

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over– like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?
Racism, deeply embedded in the psyche of America, has been allowed to exist for far too long in our country. For over 400 years, People of Color have been subjected to systemic and systematic deprivation of basic human rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence—life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
When a king has good counselors, his reign is peaceful.
