Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Luke 18:15-17
God has charged us with teaching the children about Jesus and his ministry. Outreach to the neighborhood children is on going through Sunday School and Vacation Bible Day Camp. Sunday School is run every week during the 2:00 pm service. Vacation Bible Day Camp is a full week of teaching and songs. Sunday School Children participate in the Family Service.
Welcome to all children and youth. Join St. Timothy’s Sunday School and St. Timothy’s Youth Church (Stych) when they meet during the year.
St. Timothy’s Sunday School meet every Sunday during the Worship Service to explore the Bible and the message of salvation. Ages 3 to 12. Led by members of St. Timothy’s. There is a nursery for parents with smaller children.

The Children and Youth Ministry relies heavily on parent volunteers to ensure the success of our programs. We seek adult volunteers who are eager to connect with students and help them grow in knowledge and love of Christ. Adults serve as chaperones for special events, and they also serve behind-the-scenes in such roles as hospitality and administration.
Our policy requires one adult chaperone for every 5 students present at any event. Thus, we need parents who are willing to provide guidance and ensure a safe environment. If you are the parent of a young person and would like to know how you can be more involved in the Children’s Ministry at Saint Timothy’s, volunteer to help with teaching, or if you would simply like to know about the principles that your child will be taught at a youth meeting, please contact the Rector, Dan Endresen.
