Looking for Your “God Story”! • This summer’s Summer Makeover sermon series, “Pardon The Interruption”, will run through August 8. We are focusing on the times in Jesus’ ministry when he was interrupted by folks, how that led to amazing things happening in their lives, and how we often meet Jesus in the interruptions of our lives. We are hoping to involve persons from the congregation in each service throughout the summer. Would you be willing to share a story (on video or live) about how God has interrupted your life and made amazing things happen for you? Take a look at the following scriptures and see if your story relates to or is inspired by any of them. Let Mariann Reinke or Pastor Mark know if you would be willing to share your story. The stories we will be focusing on are: Mark 5: 21-43; John 4:7-26; Mark 2:1-12; Luke 19:1-9; Mark 10:13-16; Mark 10:46-52; and Mark 6:31-44.
You Can Help the Homeless • Our brothers and sisters living on the edge of society are often forgotten when the weather warms up. A team from St. Luke serves breakfast at Nathaniel Mission each fourth Sunday. We also distribute donations of toiletries and clothing that are collected at the Connection Center. Hotel toiletries and razors, shaving cream, deodorant, sun block, and toothpaste are always welcome. Consider going through your closet and donating a t-shirt, jeans, shorts, underwear, socks, a pair of shoes. The bulk of the mission guests are men, but there is a need for casual women’s clothing. The need is ongoing. Thank you for your faithful support.
