An Update from Saint Luke’s member Daryl Moore:
The Saint Luke’s food ministry initiative with Dodd-Sterling United Methodist Church is going strong! It is an amazing story that includes:
– a community of people in Dodd-Sterling’s neighborhood who have been given a life line through the food distributed to them by Dodd-Sterling every other Tuesday
– a partnership with Urban Recipe as the source of food
– participation by Saint Luke’s both in volunteering to help with the food pick-up and distribution and in providing financial donations to cover the cost of the food
We are truly privileged to be part of this ministry, and we are blessed to have a strong relationship with our friends at Dodd-Sterling. That relationship has only deepened over the months as the number of families Dodd-Sterling has served through this ministry has grown from around 25 way back in April to an average of around 125 families. Following the “breakfast” meeting with Dodd-Sterling on April 25, there have been 12 distribution events starting on May 5 and continuing through October 6. And, on October 3rd, members from both churches and Jeremy Lewis from Urban Recipe joined together through ZOOM for another “breakfast” event. Really it was a time to celebrate the good work of this partnership!
Miraculous might be a good word to describe this difference-making ministry!

- Name: Carol Waller
- Occupation: Kindergarten Teacher at Saint Luke’s Little Saints Preschool & Kindergarten
- What inspired or led you to do what you are doing? My mother, father and both grandmothers were all teachers. I have wonderful memories of after school times spent in the school buildings with my parents as they had meetings or worked on lesson plans. I would often “play school” as a child. I never really considered any other profession. I taught for 14 years at the elementary level before staying home with my own children for a few years. The past 4 years I have spent at SLLS in the 12-24 month class, Move and Learn teacher and in the 4 Day 3s class. I was excited to have the opportunity to move back to the elementary level this year.
- What is the best thing about your job and/or what brings you satisfaction in your work and/ or what motivates you to keep doing what you are doing? Definitely the children. I have one little boy that shouts, “I love you” everyday as he gets in his car. That makes all of the mask wearing, sanitizing, and distancing worth it to be in face-to-face school. I also couldn’t ask for a better team of co-workers. We are led by the amazing Carol Perry. She builds us all up and creates such a positive and happy work place.
- What’s one thing you wish people knew about your job? All of the teachers at SLLS are there because we love it, but people probably already know that.
- Describe a typical day for you.
A typical day involves getting the room sanitized, followed by welcoming the children with a smile. Our kindergarten is a four-hour school day. We get all of the subjects in during that time, as well as recess and lunch. It’s a busy day, but most days we all leave with a smile and know that we accomplished many great things with some pretty amazing kids.
