Community Resources

Here at St. Timothy's, we seek to serve the community in whatever ways we can. Our primary way of doing this is through our faith-based childcare center which, in addition to focusing on physical, emotional, and intellectual development, joins the church in the mission of inspiring faith and passion through connections so that we can nurture and fulfill out community and our world. When it comes to futher needs, we contribute through other forms of support where we can, directing individuals to organzations that can help and holding periodic collections for those organizations. Please find a few of these below and reach out to us where other needs may arise.
