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.
School Supply Drive!
Many families in the Austin area do not have the resources to purchase the supplies needed as their children head back to school. Let's ensure they're ready with everything need to achieve a great school year! Bring crayons, glue, rulers, pens/pencils, paper, erasers, binders... really anything you find in the Back to School section at your nearest store!
Our medical/dental mission team just got back from Guatemala. It was an amazing trip:
288 rotten teeth pulled.
200+ patients treated.
30+ hours of construction completed.
So... let's go again for the fourth time this 2019!
We're planning a January construction trip and a June/July medical/dental mission. For more information, email Jay at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome to join us!
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.
Additional ministries include:
Comfort kits for the homeless - ongoing: Please pick-up a kit after worship to give to our brothers and sisters you see on Austin streets.
