Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened,
Timothy's Ministry first began in December 2002 as God's answer to my prayer after I cried out to God on my knees the day before my son Tim's birthday (Tim passed away the year before). I remember saying, "Help me, God, if only I could have had the simple joy of baking Tim a cake, what I would have given." Click on "Stories" in the top navigation bar to read how it all began.
SUNDAY POTLUCK LUNCHES
SUNDAY POTLUCK SCHEDULE
LOVING AND HELPING PEOPLE STRUGGLING WITH HOMELESSNESS THROUGH THE COMPASSION AND LOVE OF CHRIST SINCE 2004
Please consider joining us, bringing food, serving, and getting to know one another...We Are Family!
Our Sunday Potluck Luncheons and Worship Services in Palatine are cancelled until we receive approval from the CDC that we will be able to gather in large groups again.
We have continued to provide for all of our Timothy's Ministry friends at our Tim's House location in Chicago each week and continue to adapt according to the ever-changing recommendations from the CDC. Each week we have been giving away bags of food and gift cards as well as a hot take-home meal. The week of March 19 - 20, we allowed people to sit inside along the perimeter of the room without tables and spacing chairs 10 feet apart with no more than 10 people in the room, and we were able to pray together and talk. Each following week we will distribute food bags and hot take-home meals in the parking lot of Tim's House without congregating although perhaps being able to talk while standing 10 feet apart. Thank you to everyone who has continued to support our friends who are the most vulnerable especially during this time.
THANKING GOD FOR 16 YEARS OF TIMOTHY'S MINISTRY!!
Since February 2004 Timothy's Ministry has been dedicated to reaching out with love and compassion to people struggling with homelessness. We gather together for biweekly potluck luncheons as a family in Arlington Heights where caring volunteers who come from many different Churches and faith backgrounds join together with our guests to offer friendship, food, clothing, Bible studies, and more. We also gather every Thursday and Friday at Tim's House in Chicago. We thank God for orchestrating this ministry and for bringing us together as one family in His love.
FINANCIAL DONATIONS CAN GIVE OUR FRIENDS THE POSSIBILITY OF STEPPING OUT OF HOMELESSNESS, RELIEVE SUFFERING, AND IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE.
