Downtown Campus Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers make ministry possible. Find out ways you can volunteer your time and talents for the family of faith within the walls of the church.
Find Your Place to Serve
Volunteers make everything at the church– Sunday morning and weekday activities– possible. You can choose to be a greeter, welcoming event volunteer, or note writer on the Hospitality Team or donate your musical talents on our Worship Team or in our Cantate and Bell Choir. There are truly so many ways you can get involved.
Volunteer positions are available to fit any schedule. There are roles for Sunday mornings, weekdays and special events throughout the year. You can choose to volunteer weekly, monthly, or as needed. Appropriate training and guidance will be provided, so please be encouraged to try something new!
Additional information is provided below. If you would like general information about a volunteer opportunity or have a new idea about a way to help, please fill out the form below and someone will be in contact with you.
All you need is an active mind and body, ready to play and have fun with our children. You do not need to be a biblical scholar. You simply need to love God and have a desire to help children grow in their faith. All activities in the Children’s Ministry build a faith foundation for every child that will last a lifetime. Lessons and crafts are prepared ahead of time for each group, so you are not responsible for coming up with a lesson or the supplies.

The Care Ministry provides care, concern, prayer, and support for families and individuals at various stages, places, and circumstances of life. We share in sorrow and in life’s celebrations, emotionally and physically as one body of Christ. This ministry consists of clergy and trained laity in the St. Luke’s Family of Faith. We extend this care through cards of encouragement, hospital and home visits, phone calls, and email.
Congregational Care Team
This ministry cares for the congregation during all of the seasons of life. The Care Team sends cards, makes phone calls, and visits people who are celebrating, grieving, or struggling. The Pastoral Team is continuously assessing the needs of our congregation. They review prayer requests and make assignments to the Congregational Care Team. Each week the assignments are distributed to our trained laity, who then provide care for those in need. This allows St. Luke’s to provide constant support to the congregation during any circumstance. Volunteer training and team assignments take place in January each year.
This ministry is designed to keep the St. Luke’s members who are confined to their homes, assisted living centers, and nursing homes connected to their family of faith. This ministry provides companionship to some of the members who would love to visit with someone from their church. @HOME volunteers are assigned to a confined member and visit them on a monthly basis. After a visitation, they report back on how their @HOME member is doing.
Intercessory Prayer Team
Each week when a prayer request is submitted in worship, online, via the app, or by phone, it is added to the prayer list. The Intercessory Prayer Team receives this list and dedicates time every day to pray for the needs of the St. Luke’s family of faith.
This ministry is designed to keep the St. Luke’s members who aren’t able to attend worship on a regular basis connected to their family of faith. Notecard Writers send these members a card each month and on special occasions.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
This group creates prayer shawls by knitting or crocheting while praying for the recipient. These beautiful shawls are given to those in the congregation who are ill or grieving. Our prayer is that the shawl will wrap the receiver in warmth, comfort, prayers, and hugs – so they can feel all the love that surrounds them.
