As we strive to be a church that is Making God's Love Known, we want to honor Jesus's life by serving our community in various ways. Please email either Rev. Guthrie at pastor@st-lukesumc.com or Maresi Brown at familyministries@st-lukesumc.com with any questions about these ministries.



St. Luke's is a praying community! Our phone and email prayer chains are quite active in making urgent needs known to our praying congregation. If you have a prayer request, please click here to submit it. 

Food Pantry


One of the hardest things in a struggling economy is to make tough financial choices - rent or food? We understand that challenge and so in partnership with Feeding America Tampa Bay and other organizations, the St. Luke's UMC Food Pantry has fed tens of thousands of people in its lifetime. Simply bring your photo I.D. to the Pantry on Mondays between 5:00-6:00pm, and receive an assortment of fruits & vegetables, meats, dry and pantry goods for you and your family. 

Feeding The Hungry


St. Luke's also commits to bringing a hot meal to serve the people coming to the St. Vincent DePaul Society (384 15th Street N) twice monthly. If you would like to serve on either the cooking team or the serving team, contact the church office here.

Recovery Groups

St. Luke's is host to three groups - Alcoholics Anonymous, which meets at 7:30pm on Mondays and 7pm on Thursdays; Al-Anon, meeting at 10:30am on Wednesdays; Al-Anon, meeting at 11:30am on Thursdays; and ACA at 7:30pm on Fridays.

Children and Youth Ministry


Children & Youth gatherings have been on hold during the pandemic but will be hitting the restart button in January 2022! Stay tuned for more information or email Maresi Brown by clicking here.


Mens & Womens Groups


Our United Methodist Men's group is active in our Feeding the Hungry ministry and also meet for breakfast on the first Saturday of each month at 7:30am for breakfast and devotions. They also frequently gather for Bible Study on Saturdays at 8:30am. 
The United Methodist Women are dedicated to missions and supporting the work of many service organizations in the local and worldwide community. They gather for fellowship and study monthly on the 2nd Tuesday, and have other special meeting times - see our calendar of events for more information!
