Service Projects

 Going beyond the four walls of the church is important to us and keeps us healthy in our giving and our outlook.  At St. Tim's we've been very active.  For example:  
   Each year, we adopt a number of families at Thanksgiving and provide them with the fixins’ for a nice Thanksgiving day dinner. 
   We've saved the lives of 100 children through our special collection to raise funds for malaria nets.
   We've collected hats, mittens, scarves and gloves for Kaden's Kloset,  collected items for the Humane Society, adopted two families through the Salvation Army for Christmas, gathered personal care kit items for LSIowa-Bremwood, packed and shipped personal care kits for Lutheran World Relief, and we collect school supplies annually to be shared at Hudson Schools.
   We use God’s Global Barnyard boxes during Lent to raise money for world hunger.
   We also work monthly at the NE Iowa foodbank, host a regular monthly foodbank collection and support the work of the Foods Resource Bank, a local program with a global reach.
   The annual "God's Work. Our Hands" projects see St. Timothy giving to the local community and to the larger church.
   Our children and youth have made placemats for area events, and we've struck up a relationship with our friends at Harmony House.
   We've worked with the Lutheran Student Center to help stock their food pantry.
    Yes, we're active here! Service to others is part of our DNA at St. Tim's.
