At St. Luke JOY Church, we partner with various missions organizations that are serving our community, as well as the world around us! We desire to serve both the physical and spiritual needs of our community and world -- and to see the Gospel proclaimed in word and deed!
Local missions supported by St. Luke JOY include the following:
Rachel House - A pregnancy resource center (with a location across the street from our church) providing services and assistance for pregnant women and their babies.
InAsMuch Ministries – A food pantry located in Liberty that serves all of Clay County. It is uniquely a choice pantry meaning the client is able to choose approximately 25 items they desire from a reasonably extensive selection. Also, In As Much is authorized to dispense government commodities.
Salvation Army Team Table – St. Luke provides workers and funds for a soup kitchen on 9th Street in the center city.
Northland Shepherd's Center– This is an extensive ministry to seniors in the northland. Members of St. Luke JOY were actively involved in the formation of this organization and continue to participate in leadership and as volunteers.
St. Luke JOY also partners with a number of international missions ministries and has supported missionaries serving with a variety of organizations including Wycliffe Bible Translators, CRU, All God's Children and World Outreach (the missions agency of the EPC).
Outreach to the Community -Joy Community Garden. If you are a gardener looking for a garden you can rent a bed for $25.00. This fee is to help cover the cost of water for the season. Contact Jen Reyes or Brenda Hunnicutt with questions. Also you may contact our church office for more information.
