Following our baptismal covenant to “seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves,” the Mission & Outreach Committee is charged with discerning the parish’s call in the community and providing members of St. Luke’s the opportunity to contribute their time, talent, and treasure outside the church parish.
Service opportunities have included:
Embracing the Journey: End-of-Life Resource Fair
- Installing fire alarms in low-income households with the American Red Cross
- Building homes with Habitat for Humanity
- Preparing and serving meals at St. Vincent de Paul Homeless Shelter
- Stocking food pantry shelves for Hope Ministries
- Completing minor home repairs for elderly, disabled, and low-income people with Mid City Redevelopment Alliance
- Filling detergent bags for Volunteers of America laundry center
- Making and distributing Blessing Bags for the homeless
Designed for seniors and their children or other potential caregivers, this fair at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church promises an in-depth discovery of the many decisions to be made for end-of-life care. For more information, contact Becky Williams.
Throughout the season of Lent, St. Luke's parishioners- adults and children- save money in cardboard Mite Boxes. Full of spare change and dollars, the boxes are then collected on Easter Sunday and offered to local families in need.
Through partnerships with Volunteers of America and St. Vincent de Paul, seasonal outreach includes our Thanksgiving Dinner and Christmas Angel projects. We are also a church partner of Southeast Ministries.
