Reaching out locally
School Supplies & Uniforms
Each fall at the beginning of the school year, Saint Luke's parishioners gather school supplies and contribute funds for the purchase of school uniforms for children in our community who may not otherwise be able to attend school without these supplies. Pencils, notebooks, crayons, rulers, and numerous other supplies are collected each Sunday in the narthex of the church. Donated funds are used to purchase vouchers from a local uniform store. If you would like to become a part of this ministry, call the church office at 731-424-0556.
Community Kitchen (Soup Kitchen)
The community kitchen serves food to an average of 165 hungry people per day. Saint Luke's volunteers at the Community Kitchen twice a year. We invite you to bring food for this important program on the second Sunday of each month.
RIFA passes out nearly 200 sacks of food per month to families in need. Saint Luke's provides food for this important program. We invite you to bring food on the second Sunday of each month.
RIFA sends food home each weekend for almost 300 needy children, who would not otherwise eat over the weekend, through the snack-back-pack program. Saint Luke's provides food for this important program. We invite you to bring food on the second Sunday of each month.
Saint Luke's invites you to remember the needy when you are filling your shopping cart and bring your items to the church on the second Sunday of each month and place them on the table outside the Library or in the red wagons in the Narthex or the Commons. For more information, please contact the parish office at 731-424-0556.
Each year at Christmas, our congregation provides Christmas gifts for families currently being served by the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse. The Empty Pew outreach committee coordinates the effort placing paper angels on our Chrismas Tree in the Commons which list the needs and wishes of those children and families who are often dislocated from their families, in dire financial straits and suffering in many ways from the effects of abuse. www.carlperkinscenter.org
