Operation Deep Freeze CALLING ALL COOKS!
St. Luke’s is sponsoring two weeks (February 14 -20 & February 21 -27) to cook for approximately 25 people when the temperature goes below freezing.

The Salvation Army opens its doors for dinner and provides sleeping arrangement for those normally sleeping outside. The meals are simple (i.e. sloppy joes, coleslaw, baked beans, chips, and dessert). Food is prepared at the Salvation Army. You can create your own menu that you would like to serve. We need a minimum of 4 people per evening. The Outreach Commission will reimburse you for the food you prepare.

Don’t miss out on this fun evening working side by side with your parish family! If you see this as a project you would like to be involved in and comfortable doing during the pandemic,
then call: Mary Hallford at 602-796-1177.
Order of St. Luke Healing Community will meet online on Saturday February 6 at 10 a.m.

All are welcome to join for prayer and fellowship.

*In case it is needed, the password for the meeting is: Order*

The St. Luke's Team for the Prescott Community Cupboard Food Bank
needs your help!

“The Cupboard” was started in 1973, with St Luke’s as one of the seven founding member churches. Since 1973, the Cupboard has been providing groceries to families in need out of their location in downtown Prescott on Goodwin Street.

The number of people coming to the Cupboard for assistance has increased since the COVID-19 crisis. The St. Luke’s Team is in need of more “packers“ (people who work in pairs to bag up the groceries and assist in handing them out to families). It is very rewarding work and one more way to show our solidarity with those who have been most affected by this crisis. Packers are asked to work one afternoon for 3 hours every seven weeks (less, if we have more volunteers😊). 

If you would like to be part of the St Luke’s Team, or would just like more information, email Gayle Gregory at azgayler@gmail.com.
St. Luke's Food Pantry
St. Luke's Food Pantry continues to serve the community
each Friday, 9 a.m. to noon. The drop-off food drive continues
each Thursday, 2 to 4 p.m. at the south entrance.

Number of people served on February 5, 2021: 83 individuals

Special Food Pantry Needs:
