St. Luke’s is committed to be the hands and feet of Christ in our local community. We offer a variety of opportunities to serve.
Current Volunteer Opportunities
Due to Coronavirus closures and limitations, many of our regular volunteering programming has been suspended for the time being. Please visit the “I can help” page for information about current volunteer opportunities during this time.
St. Luke’s is committed to the arts and has many events throughout the year; from concerts at each campus to musicals in the Poteet Theatre.
Event Volunteers Volunteers are needed at every arts event; from serving as greeters and ushers to box office and concession stand help, there are a number of ways that you and your family can serve together in the arts.
Prop Crew Each show that is performed needs special props to help tell the story. The Poteet Theatre has a vast inventory of props, but a team of volunteers works to pull these props together for each show.
Set Crew Volunteers are needed to help create the set for each play or musical in the Poteet Theatre. If you are proficient in woodworking, or a good painter, your skills can be used in this ministry area.
Tech Crew A musical is not complete without sound and lighting. Volunteers are needed for each event, so if you have a passion for lighting or sound engineering, we have a place for you. Training is provided.

El Sistema Oklahoma provides free after-school instrumental music education and social support to over 200 children in 3rd through 12th grade in Oklahoma City Public Schools. El Sistema Oklahoma meets during the school year at First Presbyterian Church (1001 NW 25th St, OKC) and volunteers are needed Monday – Friday between 2 – 6 p.m.
Volunteers set their own, flexible schedules. Come every day or only one day a week. Volunteer for the entire time or only an hour. Every bit of time spent is valuable to the children. You do not need any musical experience to serve, as there are many other tasks that are critical. Most successful volunteers serve on a regular schedule, as this helps you learn the program and develop relationships with the children, faculty and other volunteers.
Current volunteer needs include: snack server, program greeter, and station aide. Volunteers consent to a background check prior to serving on site with the children.

Addiction affects nearly every family in some way. Complex and arduous, the journey to recovery is often a long one. The church is called to be a safe place to start the conversation about recovery with individuals and families in need. Faith Partners Ministry is a link between the family of faith and recovery resources in the community.
Volunteers begin as a resource for information but may eventually check in with a specific family, showing them care and love as they face the difficulties of addiction. This volunteer opportunity is for anyone who has a heart for caring for people through hard times in life and can help provide insight into good resources in the community.
All Faith Partners volunteers make a difference through promoting the ministry, recruiting new volunteers, and praying for the ministry and those involved with it. You do not need to be an expert to volunteer.
Support Team Members This group acts as a resource link to groups and organizations in the community that help address recovery needs. When someone who needs help is looking for guidance, the team member offers expertise by pointing them in the right direction.
Recovery Advocates Volunteers become more involved in the faith journey of those the Faith Partner Team are caring for, by calling or mailing cards to check in on people after their referral(s). Also encouraging them to continue in their faith journey with worship, and reminding them that they are accepted and welcome at St. Luke’s.
