DSC 0218 DSC 0215 DSC 0213 DSC 0245

St. Luke's members have many talents to share and we have a variety of ways to be involved. Please contact the Parish Office to become part of any of these ministries or to share ideas on creating new ones.

Outreach

Meals on Wheels
What a great outreach ministry this is to the elderly in our Ada community! St. Luke’s sends volunteers to drive and deliver meals once every three months for one week. 

Internal Ministries

Layreader
In our worship, these ministers read from the Scriptures and pray the prayer forms that address the needs of our community and the world. There are usually two layreaders for each service and all layreaders rotate on a schedule. Anyone who is confirmed in the church is eligible for being a layreader.

Usher
This ministry involves welcoming those who attend services, giving out service bulletins, providing some leadership in directing people toward the altar for Holy Communion and in taking the financial collection at the appropriate time.

Chalice Bearer
Those persons who administer the chalice of wine during Holy Communion. This role is open to anyone who has been confirmed in the church.

Acolytes
One of our youth ministries, acolytes are members ages 7 and up who serve at the altar on Sundays and assist the priest in various ways. There is no upper age limit for this ministry and adults are welcome to serve as acolytes.

Choir
We believe in making a joyful noise unto the Lord. Join us on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm in the parish hall for practice. If you have an instrument and talent to add, we welcome you as well.

Sunday School (Christian Formation) Teacher
We invite you to participate in this very important ministry for our youth or our adults. A fairly good grasp of the Bible and an understanding of how the Episcopal Church understands the Bible and its interpretation are important. If you enjoy teaching and interacting with youth, this is a growing ministry at St. Luke's.

Prayer Chain
The prayer chain is for those who volunteer to pray for members of our church daily, as well as for special requests in times of need.

St. Margaret's Guild

This once-a-month gathering of the women of the Church meets on the first Tuesday at 3:00 pm for a time of study, fellowship, and a luncheon to follow. St. Margaret’s members offer a significant amount of outreach with their financial support of several ministries.

Pastoral Care
We have a group of devoted care-givers in our congregation who visit our members, send cards, and look for all sorts of ways to provide care for the congregation and newcomers.

Vestry
The Vestry is that body of people within the church that provide spiritual leadership and govern the financial decisions of the parish. Vestry members are elected at our annual meeting and serve for two-year terms.

Guild of San Juan Valdez
This essential ministry entails brewing coffee and providing some baked goodie for those who come back for coffee following the Sunday service.

Youth Group
We have a wonderful youth group program and facility for youth 6 years of age and older. They meet regularly every other Sunday afternoon. For exact date and time please call the office.

Dinner for 6+2
This is a monthly gathering of St. Luke's members who wish to get to know each other a little better. They meet in each others' home for a potluck dinner and great fellowship. Please call the parish office if you're interested in joining a group.

Hospitality/Events
We have a group of people who do the real hands on work of putting together events at the parish---Italian dinners, pancake suppers, Chili Cookoffs, Fish Frys, Cinco de Mayo celebrations, or Summer concerts, we do a little bit of everything.
