Lydia Patterson Institute is a United Methodist school in El Paso, TX, that enables students from Juarez, Mexico to receive a first-class high school education and then go to college. For more than 100 years, Lydia Patterson Institute – or “La Lydia” as it is commonly known to its friends – has been dedicated to building bridges between two countries, two cities, and two cultures. As the only United Methodist institution on the border, it is committed to forming bilingual and bicultural leaders for the church and society. St. Luke’s supports these students and their unique hunger and determination for success. They transform from young children, many of whom do not speak English when they arrive, to successful bilingual college graduates with a profession. Through the partnership with The United Methodist Church, 95 percent of La Lydia’s graduating seniors attend a college or university. It is through the miracle of education that lives are being changed daily at Lydia Patterson Institute.

- Sequoyah Middle School Mentoring Program
As a family of faith, we believe the world can be changed by caring for others. Every Wednesday during the school year, a team of mentors meets with a group of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Sequoyah Middle School in Edmond to learn skills necessary to succeed in the classroom and in life. The group eats snacks, laughs through a few games, and learns to think critically about how to accomplish daily responsibilities. Sometimes the students just need someone to listen to them. Time is spent working on assignments and growing; not only in knowledge, but also in their ability to succeed in a variety of circumstances.
We always need volunteers to help with our Middle School Mentoring Program weekly on Wednesdays from 2:50-4:00 p.m.

- Mission Rancho Village
Mission Rancho Village is a new after-school ministry of St. Luke’s. We have developed a mission to serve the compelling needs of Rancho Village Elementary, 1401 S. Johnston Drive, an Oklahoma City Public Schools District school located two blocks from St. Luke’s Asbury. This is a program to develop a partnership between the church, the school, and the larger community. It is a holistic approach to ministering to the children by developing resources for the needs in their lives, in their school, and in their families.
Help a student reach their full reading potential. Volunteers read one day a week, Monday – Thursday from 9 - 9:30 a.m.
This program helps students with basic math skills. It is Tuesdays from 2 - 2:30 p.m.

- Studio 222 View Mission Page
Studio 222 is an after-school program that helps children develop a strong, healthy self-esteem and resilience against at-risk behaviors. This mission invites professional artists from the OKC area to provide a positive environment in which children can gain confidence and be inspired to express themselves through art.
Studio 222 began in 2004, focusing on middle school youth of Taft Middle School. In 2010, a high school program was added to help students through mentoring, internships, college preparation, and life skills.
The program runs Monday through Thursday during the school year. The students are fed a meal upon arrival – sometimes the only meal they have all day. They are given a brief lesson or activity on leadership. Monday through Wednesday, professional artists from our community are hired to teach the students everything from photography to painting to computer animation to the culinary arts. Thursdays are spent on field trips, movies, community service, games, and more.
Donations to Studio 222 go completely to support its programming. While Studio 222 is facilitated by St. Luke’s United Methodist Church through use of buses, facilities, utilities, and missional offerings – 100 percent of the programming costs of Studio 222 are raised through individual donations, corporate donations, fundraisers, and grants.
Drivers are a crucial part of Studio 222 success, as most students would not be able to attend without this accommodation. Driving the van does not require a special license. Drivers are needed to pick up students from 3:30 - 4:15 p.m. and/or drive students home from 6 - 7:15 p.m.
The students are fed each day they come to Studio 222. We rely on donations for the desserts and drinks. Desserts can be packaged or homemade. We prefer powdered drink mixes such as Gatorade, lemonade, or Kool-aide versus individually packaged drinks.
Volunteers are vital to the success of Studio 222. Assisting in the classroom is about building relationships, connecting with the students and helping maintain order in the class. You help us create an environment of comfort, encouragement, and warmth.
Mentors are needed to help students that have graduated from Studio 222 navigate life by providing advice, support, and guidance.
Support Network volunteers are willing to provide discounted services and teaching assistance in all areas of life.
Studio 222 is a ministry of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. Your support will directly benefit the children through the purchase of art supplies, food, artist support, and other program needs. Support for the program is provided also through St. Luke’s budget, designated contributions, grants, and fundraisers. Donations to Studio 222 are tax-deductible, and St. Luke’s will provide a statement to all donors at the end of the year.
