Jackson St. Luke plans to take ministry to street


A variety of activities will be available Oct. 18 at the second annual “A Day on Duling” festival sponsored by St. Luke United Methodist Church in Jackson.

The event will take place on the church grounds in the street out front. Activities for children include face painting, a space jump, sno-cones, City of Jackson Fire Department pumper truck and Smokehouse.

Also outside will be a shrimp boil under a tent, along with hot dogs and burgers cooked on the grill. Jackson Friends of Animals will be there with some of their friends. Jazzing everything up will be music by Cruz Duo.

Activities inside include a silent auction, white elephant sale, gently used book sale, gourmet baked goods and frozen food items. Booths include black and white photographer and polymer clay artist Emily Kamber, yard art by Patti Igoe and purses and jewelry by Christie Pollard of The Traveling Boutique.

The Thrift Shop will be open in the parking lot in back of the church, located at 621 Duling Ave. in the Fondren area. Proceeds will be shared by St. Luke’s and the Methodist Children’s Home.
