Donations Needed for Guatemala Mission Trip •
Will You Help? • On Tuesday, June 13, there will be an afternoon of service and learning at the Kentucky Annual Conference. One of the opportunities to serve will be putting together health kits for the United Methodist Committee On Relief (UMCOR). The goal is 2000 kits! Churches throughout Kentucky are invited to donate various items to fill the kits. Those in the Lexington District are asked to bring large and sturdy combs, not pocket sized combs. There will be a box in the Connection Center to collect the combs. Thanks for your help!
Photos Needed for Father’s Day Memorial • On Father’s Day, June 18, we will be having a special memorial recognition during our morning services to remember the fathers in and of our congregation who have passed away over the course of the last year. If you would like to participate in this, please send us a photo of your father, along with his name, your name (if you wish), and the date of his birth and death. Email this to email@example.com by Monday, June 12.
Father’s Day Women’s Ensemble • Calling all gals who had a father, or think their husband is a great dad, and would like to honor him by singing in a women’s ensemble on June 18, Father’s Day! Contact Mariann Reinke for rehearsal schedule (email: firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 419-494-3335), or show up to rehearsal on Wednesday June 7 and 14 from 7-8:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This would be a wonderful opportunity to invite a friend who loves to sing!
Worship Music Sunday • On June 11 we are going to highlight the music ministry during the morning worship services. We want to have a time when we sing some of your favorite hymns and praise songs. We are looking for two or three persons from each of the three services who will share with us their favorite hymn/worship song and a brief word (2 or 3 minutes) about why that hymn/song speaks to you so powerfully. If you would be willing, please let Mariann Reinke, Will Solomon, Mark Walz or Mark Girard know ASAP.

Media Servants Needed • We are looking for a few people to run the computer (for the projection system) and the sound board approximately one Sunday per month. If you can’t make the commitment but would be willing to be a last-second substitute, we still need you! Training will be provided. If you would like to volunteer, or have questions, please contact: Mariann Reinke, director of worship, by email at email@example.com or call 419-494-3335.
Looking for Your “God Story”! • This summer’s Summer Makeover sermon series (Pardon The Interruption) will begin on June 18 and will run through August 8. We will be 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.
United Methodist Women • The United Methodist Women will meet on Tuesday, June 13 at 6 pm in the Fellowship Hall. Our speaker will be Douglas Wain from YouthAlert. He will talk to us about violence and bullying, prevention and training. Please consider inviting a friend to join you, especially other women from St Luke who might appreciate knowing more about this important topic of our times. Please come join us for fellowship and refreshments.
