United Methodist Women
A community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole persons through Jesus Christ; to develop a creative, supportive fellowship; and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the church.
Seven circles meet on a monthly basis for programs on topics of personal growth, spiritual enrichment and missions. They also come together for unit meetings and participate in UMW Activities. A woman can be a member of one of our circles or she can be an at-large member and attend any number of circles or no circle and participate in UMW Activities.

The Food Pantry is a free service provided by St. Luke United Methodist Church. It is held once a month on the last Thursday of each month. Families in need are given a grocery sack full of canned goods, cereal, meat and other items which have been either donated to the food pantry or purchased from donated funds. The Sarah Circle also provides a baked meal or a large container of homemade soup for each family.
We serve 140-175 families. We average 30 new families a month.This service is accomplished through the use of volunteers. It takes many hours to obtain the food, distribute it and restock the shelves. Please click here for more information on how you can get involved.
St. Luke is proud to be a partnered church with Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC) along with 30 other Christian Churches in Sheboygan County. The mission of Love INC is to mobilize local Christian Churches to transform lives and communities through relationship in the Name of Christ. Formed in 2013, Love INC operates a Clearinghouse to respond to neighbors-in-need with resources from local church ministries and the community. The Clearinghouse is a phone ministry staffed with trained Volunteers from across Sheboygan County, representing all denominations.
Love in the Name of Christ is a proven model, with 157 affiliates operating across the country offering those in need a hand-up, as others in our community resource network offer a hand-out – both important. Love INC offers an opportunity for neighbors-in-need to break the cycle of hopelessness – connecting them with caring individuals who will model our Christian beliefs through all interactions.
With the help of Love INC Partner Churches, Volunteers in the office and Clearinghouse, on the Board, and other individual acts of service, the Body of Christ demonstrates love for all our neighbors in need!
Second Thursday of each month, Church Parlor
The purpose of this free meal is to provide food, friendship and companionship to the hungry, needy, lonely and the elderly. All are welcome. The meal consists of anything from hearty soup and sandwiches to a complete Thanksgiving dinner. We serve between 60-120 plates of food each month.
Besides the service it gives to the people we feed, it has also given the volunteers incredible satisfaction and happiness to be able to provide this meal. Everything is done by volunteers. We need volunteers to help plan the meals, prepare the food, set up, serve, wash dishes and clean up. We need many helping hands of various ages and professions to accomplish this meal.

Good News Jail and Prison Ministry
Chaplain Rick Cawthon retired from the Air Force in October 1994. He retired with 17 years of service to enter into full-time ministry. Rick received a B.A. Degree in Christian Education from Berean University in Springfield, Missouri. He served as an Associate Pastor and as a Senior Pastor in churches before becoming a full-time Good News Jail & Prison Ministry Chaplain in April 2004.
Rick and his wife, Kim, moved to Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where Rick is serving as the first Good News Chaplain in eastern Wisconsin. Rick has received a mandate from God, to preach the good news of the Gospel to those who are in prisons or jails. God has used tragedies from Rick’s and Kim’s lives and turned them into a passion to reach lost souls for Christ. The scripture that has fueled this passion is Hebrews 13:3a, “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” (NIV)
