We offer ways for parishioners to engage in our community as a way to live into the promise in our Baptismal Covenant, "to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves." (Book of Common Prayer, p. 304) The Mission & Outreach Committee's community engagement team is integral to this effort.  We are adding new volunteer opportunities on a regular basis as COVID-restrictions lessen. Please check back to see what's new. Contact Rev. Serena here if you have any questions.

The Branch of Nashville

We offer regular volunteer opportunities to pack food boxes for distribution at The Branch of Nashville, a faith-based food distribution and language resource center in Antioch. There are also opportunities to welcome, register, and deliver food boxes to guests of The Branch. In addition to volunteering through St. Bs, you may volunteer directly through The Branch's website. https://www.thebranchofnashville.org/

We offer regular volunteer opportunities to welcome and care for guests at Shower Up, a mobile shower site for persons experiencing homelessness.  In addition to volunteering through St. B's, you may also volunteer directly on Shower Up's website: https://www.showerup.org/

St. Luke's Pantry

We provide items for the St. Luke's Pantry each month. St Luke's Community House creates a community where children, families, and seniors from different backgrounds can easily access the resources needed to live fulfilling lives.

June Items: Canned meats, cereals, PB&J, and tissues. Please leave collections for St. Luke's food pantry in the cabinet beside the doors to the gym.

Thistle Farms Graduation

Thistle Farm's Graduation, formerly called Magdalene Graduation, is held each May, with a parade down the back street behind Thistle Farms and graduation on the back balcony of the cafe. St. B's creates the gift baskets for the graduates each year.  Thank you all for your contributions for our May 2021 graduation. Check back for more information in May 2022.
