Therefore said he unto them:
The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest.
~ Luke 10:2
Compassionate Outreach has historically been an important part of St. Luke's mission. It was here that Lincolnton's first soup kitchen was started in 1975 by our member E. E. Suttle, and Bill Lee. Before the homeless shelter was built, there was nowhere for homeless people to sleep. Our members petitioned the City Council to allow them to stay in St. Luke's House; other churches provided food and volunteers. Members have been delivering meals for Christian Ministry for countless years. We have a long history of working to help LCAS (Lincoln County Animal Shelter) and HATS (the non profit Helping Animals to Survive) which works in tandem with the shelter.
Characteristically, such acts of kindness and charity are rarely publicized.
Get involved! The best way to experience the mission of the church is to volunteer for the Outreach Committee. You do not have to be a member of St. Luke's, or even attend worship services if you feel called to serve.
