St. Tim's Coffeehouse is a six concert series founded in 2016. Annually we hold three concerts in the Fall (September - November), and in the the Spring (February - April). We present acoustic Americana/folk music. Our concerts were held in the sanctuary of St. Timothy's Lutheran Church in Skokie, Illinois. After March 15, 2020, we stopped presenting on-site concerts due to COVID-19 and the State of Illinois mandate. Currently we produce concerts on Zoom and/or You Tube to bring  music to your living rooms.

Our history: by 2016, a number of local folk venues had closed on the North Shore. At the same time, St. Timothy's Lutheran Church wanted to create a community outreach program. This prompted Paul Luke, a church member to enlist high school friend, Sandy Wong. Together, this concert series was created. We are an all volunteer organization. 

We strive to curate upcoming artists along with national and international musicians. The venue debuted with the legendary, Michael Peter Smith (2016). This was followed by many favorite local, national, and international musicians including Grammy winner, Howard Levy. Other artists presented have been: Eddie Holstein (with a surprise appearance by Bonnie Koloc), Bryan Bowers, Kerry Patrick Clark, Al Day with Bob Long, Mark Dvorak, Gina Forsyth, Joe Jencks, Eric Lambert,  Joel Mabus, Buddy Mondlock with Mike Lindauer, Lee Murdoch, Heather Pierson Trio, Small Potatoes, Claudia Schmidt with Sally Rogers, Sons of the Never Wrong, Spyten Duyvil, James Lee Stanley, and The Yellow-Bellied Sapsuckers.
