OUR MISSIONS

As a community of concerned Christians reaching out to and caring for all God's children, St. Luke is very involved in mission and community ministries. We are focused on support of, and advocating for the poor, oppressed and disadvantaged.  In “normal” times most of our volunteer opportunities are focused around our support of the homeless population.  During the Covid-19 pandemic the church is closed so we are serving breakfast and dinner to the homeless during the week.  In addition, we are volunteering to deliver meals to the homeless at a hotel in Naperville the 3rd Thursday of each month.  If you are interested in volunteering for the breakfast/dinners, please click here to sign up.  If you are interested in delivering meals the 3rd Thursday of each month, please contact Vida Winans at vidajue@gmail.com.
