ELCA Youth Gathering 2024
Every three years, thousands of high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gather for a week of faith formation and fellowship known as the ELCA Youth Gathering. Through inspiring speakers, conversations with partners, Bible study and being immersed in the host city, young people will be inspired, challenged and called to live out their faith in their daily lives. Additionally, young people will have opportunities to explore their vocation and discern where they are being called into this world. In July 2024, the ELCA Youth Gathering, MYLE, the tAble and the Young Adult Gathering will center on the theme of "Created to Be," which comes from Psalm 139.  Watch this video to find out more! 
Adult Faith Formation
The Adult Faith Formation has begun a study from Augsburg Fortress called “Heaven on Earth: Studies in Matthew.” The collection of studies from this Together in Faith Series uses a 4-pronged approach to explore scripture from a historical context, a literary context, a Lutheran context and a devotional context. All are welcome!
Luther’s Small Catechism
Join Pastor Jennifer as she leads a class during Faith Formation time in Founders Hall: Luther’s Small Catechism — It’s Not Just for Confirmation!  All interested adults are invited to join us at 9:30 AM, as we wind our way through Luther’s elegant theology to better understand our faith and how it is grounded in God’s work in Christ.
St. Timothy Men’s Group
NOTE: Currently on hiatus. Every Tuesday we have the opportunity to check in and say “hi." No pressure to speak on a particular topic or read a certain lesson, just an hour a week to mentally get out and talk about our weeks activities, concerns, aspirations, joy, etc. Please contact Thomas Aben ([email protected]) for more information and to receive the Zoom link. 
Cradle Roll
When a child aged 1 month to 3 years is welcomed to St. Timothy through baptism or joins St. Timothy from another church, they are enrolled in the Cradle Roll.  The Cradle Roll uses the Splash! program published by Augsburg-Fortress, an education and nurturing program for parents. The Splash! packs cover three age ranges: 1-12 months, 13-24 months, and 25-36 months.  Each month parents will receive a mailing with age-appropriate faith-filled play, worship, meals, and prayer  activities for parents and their children, including helpful parental guidance. We encourage parents to be their child's first Faith Formation teachers as they begin their lifelong faith journey.

The adult faith formation class will meet via Zoom and in person in Founders Hall (hybrid format) at 9:15 am on Sundays. The theme for Spring 2022 is "The Wired Word - a Scripture-based curriculum as current as this week's news! For more information, please contact Jen Yamin via e-mail or by phone (615-512-7806).
