MissionsFive youth and four adults of the church went to Kentucky as

Summer 2012 - Kingdom Assignment Community Garden
A harvest of fresh tomatoes, cabbage, peppers and okra was delivered recently to the Baldwin Center in Pontiac by members of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Rochester Hills. This is a first time project for the church and, with funds provided by a Kingdom Challenge Grant, parishioners prepared the ground, planted vegetables, and tended the plants. Finally they made weekly trips to Baldwin Center with the harvested vegetables.
St. Luke's supports Little Dresses for Africa
Good news travels fast. Maxine McClure with the Interchurch Women in Rochester, learned about a project called Little Dresses For Africa. She shared with her membership, who talked with their churches, who chatted with friends, and a few short months later over 100 women are sewing for the children of the world. St. Luke’s United Methodist Women in Rochester Hills have completed over 150 dresses and are still going strong.
On a mission trip to Malawi in 2006, Rachel O’Neill saw children with no clothing and little hope of having any in the near future. Her heart was touched and, upon her return, Little Dresses for Africa was born. Simple little dresses are fashioned out of pillowcases, using no zippers or buttons. In various designs and colors, the dresses fit comfortably and are easy to wash. Today Rachel ships little dresses and shorts all over the world. During the recent disaster in Haiti, thousands of these garments were warmly received.
The message from St. Luke’s United Methodist Church and all of the ladies who are stitching these garments is, “WE’RE CHANGING LIVES ONE LITTLE DRESS AT A TIME …”
April 28, 2012 - 20 volunteers from St. Luke’s participated again this year in a Rebuilding Together Oakland County home repair event.
