St. Cloud Cares

St. Luke & St. Peter’s partners with churches in our area to provide weekend meal sacks every week of the school year to children in local schools. This year St. Cloud cares, with it’s partner churches, provided food for over 400 students in St. Cloud. Of these students, most receive one quality meal a day and that is at school. On weekends or holidays many of these children suffer from hunger and do not get a good meal. Through the collaborative efforts of churches, St .Cloud cares provides food for the the entire weekend for theses students.

Our fifth year of operation coming up in August of 2016. So keep on the look out for our current food needs and keep collecting those plastic grocery sacks (clean and in good condition) and drop them off in the barrel in the narthex of the church or at the door of the pantry in the parish hall. We use 800 sacks or so each week doubling the strength of the Carepacks that will go to elementary school children in the St. Cloud area. If you want to send a donation, make the check to “St. Cloud Cares” and drop it in the offering plate, or mail it to the church office at 2745 Canoe Creek Rd, 34772. All donations are tax deductible and go to buy food items for the packages.

Feeding His People Tuesday night Community dinners

Every Tuesday night at 6pm volunteers from our church family provide a community dinner for anyone in need of a free meal. We began this ministry in February of 2014 as a part of an alliance of churches in St. Cloud that wanted to see a free church sponsored meal every night of the week in St. Cloud for our needy individuals and families. Each Tuesday night we provide a hot meal, personal care items, a brief time of worship, conversations which lead to relationships, and invite local ministries to be present that may be able to do more to help our community guests.

Blessing St. Cloud Free community meals can be found each night of the week at the following churches in St. Cloud:

Community Hope Center Satellite center at a Place for Grace Ministry

St. Luke & St. Peter’s church has partnered with other churches in St. cloud to bring a case manager from the Community Hope Center in Kissimmee, FL every Tuesday to A Place for Grace ministry in St. Cloud, 1209 Florida Ave., St. Cloud, FL 34769.

The Community Hope Center is a Homeless Outreach Program supported by Community Presbyterian Church of Celebration and partners within Osceola County. The Community Hope Center’s mission is to provide assistance to all those in need in our community. We will secure a “no wrong door” policy and be committed to providing resources or referrals for those who are actively searching for assistance and who are willing to forge a path towards self-sufficiency.

The Community Hope Center is a program-based project that will impact the low-income, poverty level, families and individuals living in and around Osceola County, Florida. The primary emphasis will be to those living homeless or in motels and hotels along Osceola County’s 192 Corridor. This program will be used to restore dignity and self-sufficiency to those in need in our community through a holistic approach to case management, funds assistance, and life skills. The program is intended to provide gap services to clients that other agencies are not currently providing. The intent of the organization is to be a collaborative effort between local churches, social services agencies, Osceola County, the city governments and community businesses.

Opportunities for a Tuesday appointment with the Community Hope Center’s case manger in St. Cloud are made by appointment only. Contacting our church office and speaking with Fr. Rob to make an appointment.
