Faith that Shows

“For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.” - Galatians 5:6 (The Message)

The St. Luke’s community of believers expresses its faith in love by supporting organizations that change lives. In obedience, we respond to God and His Word to make disciples of all nations. (Matthew 28:19). In humility, we live out our faith in the context of our lives as Christians. We link local and global communities through a Mission of the Month program and worldwide partnerships.

Global Partnerships

There are times when words need to be accompanied by real, practical love.  Jesus showed us love in the most practical way one can imagine, by giving His own life. During mission trips throughout the years, members of St. Luke’s love the people of Honduras and Latvia with a selfless, Christlike love. Teams of servants change lives by spending time in God’s Word and putting love into practice.

Children of Love Foundation (Foundacion Ninos de Amor)

Boys in Honduras

St. Luke's partners with the Children of Love Foundation, [http://www.childrenoflove.org/] a children's home in La Paz, Honduras. The Foundation works to provide faith, hope and guidance for all children.  For several years, members have served the children and their community through construction projects, providing shoes and medical supplies, and teaching them the Good News of Jesus Christ in their own language.

The Lutheran Church in Sloka

Latvia, a Baltic state, shares a border with Russia and is across the Baltic Sea from Scandinavia. Historically a Lutheran nation, 46 years of communist rule brought about a decline of the church in that land. Encouraging and building up our brothers and sisters in Christ in Latvia to create a vision and move forward takes on many shapes and forms. In the past, teams from St. Luke’s have provided English As A Second Language camps to foster connections within their community. Members have traveled with the Sloka church’s choir, performing concerts to reach out with music into the surrounding countryside. Young members of their church received training in a workshop to inspire and develop leaders.
