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.
This May, please consider donating $15 for us to purchase a fan for one of our older adult neighbors in Austin. It's going to be a hot summer, and a fan can truly save a life for someone who can't afford to run their air-conditioner!
Guatemala Mission Trip!
Join us for our third annual trip to Guatemala this July 7-15, 2018 to partner with Project Salud y Paz and the indigenous Maya people to provide much-needed medical and dental care.

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.
