The scriptures tell us that mission is the activity of a loving, caring God who desires that all people have life and have it abundantly (John 10:10). Furthermore, mission is a natural aspect of any Christian lifestyle and needs to be incorporated into the ongoing life of every congregation.
Our primary calling at St. Luke is to help feed the hungry and work for justice for our neighbors.
Hope Food Pantry
St. Luke takes a collection for the Food Pantry every Sunday. We encourage all who attend our services to bring non-perishable food items for our collection. Those who wish to contribute money for others to buy the food may do so by including their contribution with the offering and marking it "Food Pantry." The following items are always needed: baby food, diapers, formula and canned or packaged food not needing refrigeration.
To serve at the Hope Food Pantry during their weekday distribution, please click here for more information.
We are already preparing for our 2018 Mission to Guatemala! This annual trip has been life-changing for our participants, and we hope you'll mark your calendar for summer 2018 (exact date coming soon...)
We anticipate bringing a team of 20-25 people to provide much-needed health care (medical and dental), education and construction work to the indigenous Maya.
