Drive It Forward (Car Ministry)

Posted on April 12, 2021 at 9:10 am in .


Transportation is a HUGE barrier to stability for families experiencing poverty. St. Luke’s Car Ministry is a new group committed to helping families donate used vehicles to those in need, and to set up maintenance days for oil changes. 

Saturday, January 30 was the first quarterly oil change day on St. Luke’s campus. We had a dozen volunteer mechanics do oil changes, top off fluids and do minor systems checks for 17 families on this gorgeous Saturday morning. One of the main barriers to stability is transportation and regular maintenance is a great start. Restoring Hope and Circles families as well as congregation members who lost their jobs due to COVID were invited to participate in our pilot program.

Our next Oil Change Event will be
Saturday, April 24.

There are several ways that you can help with this event,
to help “Drive it Forward“.
