Timothy's Cupboard

  To schedule an appointment for assistance, or to volunteer, contact Timothy's Cupboard at 770.591.5515

In October 1991, Timothy Lutheran Church opened Timothy's Cupboard, a food ministry to help less fortunate families living in Cherokee County.

The food bank is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. by appointment only.

Ordinarily we do not know the people who come to our cupboard for help (Christ said, "if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?"). Nor do we know the impact we have on their life beyond a handout ("who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think," ). But we do have the opportunity to share God's grace with all ("love one another as I have loved you" ).

This little ministry has grown over the years. We are known to area schools, churches, agencies (government and charitable) throughout the county and of our desire to minister aid through our food bank. Small grants, cash gifts and food drives from outside the church boundaries have provided support, thus supplementing our ministry and enabling us to reach more and further.

Every member of Timothy is a part of this ministry, rejoicing in the opportunities to share God's gifts with others and more importantly His Word!

(Gifts of money are always appreciated and enable us to buy direct from the Atlanta Community Food Bank at a Considerable savings.)
 

 For a appointment for assistance, or to volunteer, contact Timothy's Cupboard at 770.591.5515.
