The Food Outreach Ministry is continuing to provide and deliver a family food offering that includes produce to various locations throughout the Metro. The program has been a tremendous success! So much so, we are getting creative to sustain it for the long term. This is only possible because of your wonderful support.
The Mobile Market is a volunteer-centered program that enables St. Luke’s to distribute fresh fruits and vegetables, a family meal for 4 – 6 people and other kitchen staples to individuals and families throughout the metro area. It’s a simple way to help our community!

St. Luke’s is looking for people of all ages who like to write notes and letters for a new “pen pal program” to help connect members of different generations in our family of faith. Children (parents are welcome to help with this), youth, and adults can sign up .
You will be assigned a “pen pal” and can start writing notes back and forth to each other, praying for each other, and connecting with each other. If you are interested in connecting, you can sign up below and then you will be assigned a pen pal.
This is a great way for members of different generations in our family of faith to be connected to each other during this time, pray for each other, and for kids to learn the importance of writing letters to others as a way to share God’s love.
