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.

Thistle Farms Graduation

Thistle Farm's Graduation, formerly called Magdalene Graduation, will be held on Saturday, May 22, 2021, with a parade down the back street behind Thistle Farms and graduation on the back balcony of the cafe. St. B's will be creating the gift baskets for the graduates again this year.

We are excited to help celebrate 10 women! Sign-up to donate items and gift cards or help with assembling the baskets here.

Monetary donations can be made by check to the church office or online through Breeze. Please mark both as "Thistle Farms Graduation." 

Items can be left in the donation bins in the Parish Hall lobby, Sunday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. If the doors are locked, ring the bell.

If you own a convertible and would like to drive one of the graduates in the parade on Graduation Day (May 22), please email Beth Heimburger.

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.
