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 WORSHIP & LUNCH AT TIM'S HOUSE
DONATIONS - PLEASE HELP US TO HELP OUR FRIENDS WHO STRUGGLE WITH HOMELESSNESS
Timothy's Ministry is a Christian non-for profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. Your gift will be used to help us purchase quality food, coffee, and supplies needed to serve delicious, all-you-can-eat, home-cooked hot meals 2 - 3 times each week at Tim's House (serving approximately 7,000 meals including take-home meals each year). Additionally we offer financial assistance for housing and other needs, transportation (providing 2000+ ventra cards each year), clothing, blankets, warm coats, and so much more. Timothy's Ministry is a family and Tim's House is a warm place for people to gather and enjoy fellowship, delicious home-cooked food, receive clothing (including sleeping bags, backpacks, blankets, and a variety of clothing items), and also enjoy a time of opening the Bible and praying together. We love celebrating birthdays each week with cake and candles and singing!
Since the beginning of 2021, we have helped individuals step out of homelessness into housing, helped others maintain their housing by assisting with money toward rent, helped with medical expenses, and also paid for emergency housing (a hotel) for several individuals when the temperature became extremely cold...and we hope and pray to continue to help in this way always. Your donation makes it possible for us to continue to love people and be a family for those who are often alone in this world. People tell us this is a place where they experience peace and where they feel real hope and love, sometimes for the first time...and that could only come from God! Thank you!
