Missions & Outreach

The people of St. Luke's are committed to serving others because we believe that it is Jesus himself who calls us to serve.  We partner with several different community and church organizations as they work to share Gods love in tangible, life-giving ways.  You will meet St. Luke's members volunteering and giving of their time and talents, in order to build up our community and make an impact in our world today - sharing hope, grace, love, and the transformative power of the Gospel. 

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
— Matthew 28:19,20

Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone. When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
— Luke 4:14-19
