Serve Our Community
He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice,
and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? —Micah 6:8
Serving our community through social ministry at St. Timothy encompasses a variety of service and outreach ministries, often in partnership with our neighboring community. Throughout the year, St. Timothy participates in serving and supporting a number of local partners In Our Community (listed below). In addition, St. Timothy serves our community by hosting/offering along with our partners, programs and ministries Here at St. Timothy (listed below). All programs are open to the community.
In Our Community
St. Timothy hosts three mobile blood drives a year to help maintain a safe, stable blood supply, as patients rely on our blood donations for life-saving blood products (accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, those battling cancer, etc.)
Bridge Communities serves homeless families in DuPage County with mentoring, housing, and supportive services. During the 2-year program we partner up with this organization by paying the rent and having our mentor team meet with the family once a week to mentor them and help them transition to self-sufficiency.
CROP Hunger Walk
Our church participates in a Naperville Area walk by raising funds to help neighbors near and far get the meals they need for today and sustainable food security for tomorrow.
Feed The Need!
People of S. Timothy join forces to raise funds and volunteer at Feed the Need! Illinois mobile pack. One weekend in February we help pack over 1 million life-saving meals, which are shipped by Feed My Starving Children to FMSC partners in over 70 countries, delivering critical nutrition to God’s most vulnerable children.
Hesed House is the second-largest homeless shelter in the state of Illinois, and the largest shelter outside of the city of Chicago. Their mission is to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless and give people the chance to hope again. We support this ministry by serving at the shelter every 2 months by providing food and other needed items.
LSSI Giving Tree
During the Holiday season we partner up with Lutheran Social Services of Illinois and bring joy to children in foster care by purchasing Christmas gifts from their wish lists.
Mill Street Cares
Mill Street Cares helps families in need at Mill Street Elementary school, our neighbor across the street. Our members provide food items to feed children breakfast and lunch (the meals that children normally receive at school when it’s in session) during Christmas break or whenever it is needed.
Northern Illinois Food Bank Mobile Pantry
We host a mobile food pantry to distribute perishable and non-perishable food directly to hungry neighbors.
Shawls created by the loving hands of our members have personal prayers of love, hopefulness, peace and comfort for you or someone you love that are in need of comfort and healing. Prayer Shawls are available for you to pick up in our church office.
St. Timothy partners up with RefugeeOne organization which creates opportunities for refugees fleeing war, terror and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance. Our dedicated mentor team helps refugees to adjust to life in the U.S.
Sleep Out Saturday
Alongside many residents in DuPage County, we spend one cold Saturday night in November inside tents and boxes. This raises awareness about family homelessness and funds for Bridge Communities’ Transitional Housing Program.
