Stephen Ministers Are There to CareAre you, or someone you know, going through a difficult time—emotionally, spiritually, or relationally? The Stephen Ministry here at St. Luke is a ministry devoted to helping anyone who is lonely, experiencing a crisis, or simply stressed by everyday life. No one should ever have to suffer alone. Our Stephen Ministers are trained caregivers, ready to listen, care for and encourage you, pray with and for you, and provide confidential one-to-one Christian care to help you through whatever it is that you are facing. To find out more, talk with Paul White, Nancy Lendman, Connie White or the Pastor, or simply call the church and ask about this ministry!
This care is entirely confidential—no one knows the identity of a care receiver except for his or her Stephen Minister and the pastor or Stephen Leader who paired the two together. The care receivers featured here stepped forward willingly to share their stories. Click to see their stories
Family Promise is a faith-based ministry designed to meet the immediate needs of Memphis-area families who find themselves homeless. St Luke partners with Family Promise to provide overnight facility use, meals and transportation to these families 3 weeks out of the year. How you can help
In cooperation with Grace St. Luke Episcopal Church in midtown,, St. Luke serves over 1200 homeless guests in a given year. More Than a Meal provides a hot meal and, in addition, provides the dignity of table service, fellowship, and a break from the invisibility that many of the guests live. How you can help:
Volunteers may serve in food preparation or as servers in the kitchen or dining room.
What are Little Free Libraries? Little Free Libraries are hand-crafted structures filled with constantly changing collections of books donated and shared by people of all ages and backgrounds. Most Little Free Libraries are placed in front yards, parks, gardens and easily accessible locations. The Libraries are built to withstand weather of all kinds and hold 20-100 books. Some Libraries are located in coffee shops, in or near restaurants and community centers. St Luke is privileged to have two of these "Take a Book, Leave a Book” libraries placed on our grounds. Spread the word among your neighbors and friends, and spread the joy of reading. There are books for all ages and intrests...just drive or walk by and pick up (or drop off) a book to enjoy... No charge and no late fees involved!
