Reaching Out In Love

Join us as we work for social justice and to aid those in need

Souper Bowl Sunday is an annual event to raise funds for our Food Closet

St. Timothys Food Closet

Our food closet is open on the third Friday of each month, from 1-4 P.M.  Requests for assistance must be made ahead of time by contacting the church office.

Most of our food supply is purchased through the NE Iowa Food Bank, with supplemental items being purchased elsewhere.

We welcome donations of food, funding, non-food items (such as cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, pet food) and your time. There is a drop-box for your donations in the entry area outside the sanctuary.

NON DISCRIMINATION STATEMENT – This institution is an equal opportunity provider.  Learn more here.

Adopt-A-Family Gifts are wrapped and ready for delivery

Partners In Education

St. Timothys is a partner with the Dr. Walter Cunningham School for Excellence in Waterloo. This school is located in an area of need. Ongoing ministry opportunities include: mentoring students, collecting Hy-Vee grocery store receipts, helping with trick-or-treat activities, supporting their Annual Carnival by donating sweets to the Cake Walk, and donating hats and mittens for the students in the winter.

Christmas Adopt-A-Family and Mitten Tree projects

Each December, we gather up gifts and basic clothing needs for families and children.  Gifts are purchased and wrapped, usually for 3 to 5 families.  Mittens, scarves, hats, underwear, and socks are collected for our Mitten Tree – to be given to children at our Partner school.

Community Meals

Every Tuesday, a free meal is served in Scott Hall at First United Methodist Church in Cedar Falls.

St. Timothys participates with other metro churches in donating the food and serving the meal. We take our turn the third Tuesday of every other month.

St. Timothys had a pit stop for walkers in 2023


The CROP Walk is a Church World Service project.

Each year in October, walkers from St. Timothys join those from other churches to raise funds to alleviate hunger and its causes worldwide.

Usually a portion of the proceeds are used for local agencies; with the rest going to worldwide needs.

Cedar Valley Pridefest

Cedar Valley Pridefest is an annual two-day event that highlights the diverse gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender community of Eastern Iowa in a positive and informative manner in an effort to promote acceptance, understanding and equality. 

It’s usually held in late August, on West 4th Street in Waterloo. 

Members of St. Timothys gather at our booth there to greet and welcome festival attendees.
