Serve Locally

St. Luke's is passionate about Sharing God's Love throughout the world, starting with our own backyard. Explore ways to serve the OKC metro with your family of faith below.

Arts at St. Luke's

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 After-School Program

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.

Pet Ministry

Anyone of any age, who has a heart for animals, is welcome to be part of the St. Luke’s Pet Ministry. This group invites animal lovers to take part in sharing, growing and serving together as we experience the remarkably unique and spiritual relationships that we share with the animals who provide us with comfort and companionship.

Pet Ministry Volunteer
Volunteers help with fun projects like the Pet Blessing, or helping with other community missions for animals in need and writing notes to members of the family of faith who are welcoming a new pet or saying goodbye to a beloved best friend. This opportunity is great for people who love animals.

Paws Prayer Team
Volunteers pray primarily for pets when they are sick, or for owners when there is a time of need. This prayer team is available to adults and children.

Studio 222 After-School Program

Studio 222 is an after-school program that helps students in 6th through 8th grade by developing 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 takes place during the school year at the Downtown Campus, Monday – Thursdays.

Volunteers consent to a background check prior to serving on site with the children.

Classroom Volunteers
Assisting in the classroom at Studio 222 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. Volunteers can serve once a week or every day: Monday – Thursdays
from 4 – 6 p.m.

The students are offered a meal 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-Aid instead of individually-packaged drinks.

Student Transportation
Drivers are a crucial part of Studio 222 success, as most students would not be able to attend without a ride. Driving the church van does not require a special license, however, drivers do have to pass an online safety class for insurance purposes. Volunteers pick up students from school between 3:30 – 4:15 p.m. and/or drive students to their home from 6 – 7:15 p.m.

Studio 222 Mentors
Mentors are needed to help students who have graduated from the Studio 222 program and are now in high school or college. Mentors help students navigate life by providing advice, support, and guidance.

Faith Partners Addiction Ministry

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.
