ONGOING
 
Saint Luke Food Pantry - The clients of Saint Luke Food Pantry include families and single individuals.  All suffer from food insecurity and turn to Saint Luke Food Pantry and other food providers to help with nutritional needs.  In a recent sermon, Mother Virginia challenged us not to shy away from opportunities to respond to others as followers of Jesus.  Selecting nutritious staples for others as we grocery shop is one of those opportunities.  As we shop, we can also offer a kind greeting to those who assist us, making the experience a "twofer."  Your Social Ministries Team thanks you.
