OUTREACH/MISSIONS

Free Hug Events

Because sometimes all you need is a hug, from time to time we offer free hugs at events such as Farmer's Markets and Light the Night in our neighborhood.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

St. Luke's has had a Prayer Shawl Ministry for the past 6 years. The purpose is to present a tangible token of our love and prayers to individuals who are sick, grieving or otherwise in need of comfort. Dozens of shawls have been given to parish and family members over the past 6 years. Shawls are hand-knit or crocheted by a dedicated crew of parishioners, then blessed on the altar of St. Luke's before being given away.

Mitten Tree

Each year the ECW sponsors the Mitten Tree at St. Luke's. This tree is displayed outside the sanctuary for a month to be decorated with mittens, hats, scarves and gloves donated by members of the parish. These donations are then gathered up and given to an organization or agency to distribute to needy children in the Des Moines area.  Visit the Events & Schedule Page for upcoming dates.
