In the beginning of September, St. Luke’s gave a 40K grant to Redeeming Life Outreach Ministry in Sanford, FL and Orange County Academy in Bithlo, FL.  Whenever we end our fiscal year with a surplus we like to give 10% to other organizations as a tithe.  A big thank you to these two organizations for the good work you’re doing in Central Florida!


“Let’s show our love by deeds and truth rather than words or speech.” – 1 John 3:18  Redeeming Life Outreach Ministries (RLOM) operates by this verse.  Motivated by God’s grace, RLOM is a maternity home that seeks to reach out with the love of Christ to support single expectant and postpartum mothers. They’re a pro-life ministry that supports the mothers that come to them and their choice to place their baby for adoption or parent.  They do this by providing a safe and stable home.  The women have opportunities for growth in their relationship with their Savior, as well as career, parenting, and life skills education.


Dinner and devotions together are one of the favorite parts of the residents’ day at Redeeming Life Outreach Ministries.
