Sack Lunch Program
SACK LUNCH PROGRAM St. Luke’s is one of a number of churches in Racine which participate in the Sack Lunch Program. The Program provides 70 brown-bag lunches every Saturday for anyone needing lunch.
Typically, St. Luke’s is responsible for 5-6 Saturdays per year. On our
designated Saturday, volunteers meet at First United Methodist
Church, 745 Main Street, at 10:30 a.m. to make the lunches, after
which they are distributed at 12 noon to the public. Volunteers provide
the ingredients needed. The Program is organized by St. Luke’s St.
Monica’s Guild, and anyone in the church who is interested in helping is
welcome to join us. Leave a message for Tricia Frost if you have any

St. Vincent de Paul Meal

St. Luke's Episcopal Church has supported this important outreach program for many years.On our designated dates -- four per year -- we provide a hot meal for 50-75 guests.Our parishioners support this program by preparing about eight to nine casseroles, donating cash so that we can purchase salad, fruit, and bread to complete the meal.About eight parishioners volunteer their time at the site to serve and clean up after the meal.This outreach event is appreciated by the people who attend and gives the volunteers a heart-warming feeling. Stan Timm, Kathie Thompson and Judy Greenquist are the coordinators.

St. Monica's Guild
St. Monica’s Guild has been a fixture at St. Luke’s since 1940. At that time, there were other womens’ guilds but we are the only one that survived. In those early days, the primary responsibilities were: holding fundraisers to support the building fund, doing some of the cleaning at the church, and being on nursery duty on Sunday mornings.
Today we are a smaller group, composed of longtime and newer members, and our primary activities are: holding an annual bake sale fundraiser at the West Racine Farmers Market in the Fall; making sack lunches for the Sack Lunch Program 5-6 times a year; giving financial support to the Haiti Project through educational scholarships for students, and selling Haitian coffee; helping with funeral arrangements at the church when needed; and contributing to the needs of the church.
Proceeds from the Bake Sale go to support the church and the Haiti Project. The Guild operates more informally than in the past and we have no dues. We meet regularly at the Red Onion downtown for lunch to discuss business and for socialization. New members are very welcome! Contact is Tricia Frost if you have any questions.
On Sunday Morning:
Children Christian Education
St. Luke's new Sunday School program for toddlers through Confirmation-age youngsters begins October 20. Each week following the Processional, we'll gather for a prayer and a snack that Jesus might have eaten as a boy. We'll begin this year's program by learning parables from the gospel of St. Luke through play, songs, signing, and praying. We will return to worship each week in time to Pass the Peace and experience the Eucharist.
We are always happy to welcome children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and neighbors! leave a message for Leah Nakamura with questions. Help us fill our classes youngsters who will learn about God's amazing love for them.
