Support our Back-to-School Supply Drive this July
We're getting a jump-start on buying school supplies for students at Mathews Elementary and families at the Hope Food Pantry. If you are interested in supporting this effort, please bring backpacks, notebooks, pens/pencils, crayons and glue to donate on a Sunday morning. You can also write a check to St. Luke UMC and note: school supply drive and we will purchase them for you!
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 preparing to depart for our July 15-23, 2017 Mission to Guatemala!
This year we are taking 19 people, including a doctor, dentist and paramedic.
If you are interested in supporting the trip with a financial offering, please contact Pastor Jay at firstname.lastname@example.org.
