Serving Our Neighbors, Transforming Society

We are sent out to do God’s work in the world. We are transformed by radical welcome, by the stories of our faith, and by the real presence of God - and that transformation means that not only our lives, but also our communities and our world must look different. When we work for justice, we enact God’s love in public. When we work for justice, we conspire with God in the work of ever re-creating, sustaining, and redeeming all of creation.

Justice work at St. Luke’s takes many forms. We engage directly with our neighbors in need as volunteers with service providers. We attend city council meetings and partner with grassroots community organizations. And we march through the streets in public witness to God’s love in the face of injustice.
