The July Newsletter is Here!
The July newsletter is now available in print in the Connection and Welcome Centers or in full-color online at www.stlukeumc.org/newsletter.
The Mountain Mission Truck is Coming! • The Mountain Mission is in great need of summer clothing and swimsuits for men, women, and children, dishes, pots and pans, small appliances, other household items, tall kitchen bags, paper towels, 33 gallon garbage bags, toilet paper, latex gloves, Febreeze air fresheners, rubber bands, and safety pins. Please drop off donated items inside the stairwell storage space in the Connection Center (just past the Connection Center on the left) before July 31. Thank you so much for responding!
New Sunday School Meeting • There will be a meeting July 9 at 9:45 a.m. to discuss the upcoming new Sunday School which is targeted to individuals in their 20s and 30s. We welcome individuals of all stages of life: single, married, with or without children. On that day we will cast vision and discuss our plans. The class itself will start on August 6. We will meet in Room 110 in the Life Center. For more information contact Julie Duff (859-619-8151), Michelle Arnold, or Wes and Heidi Wilcox. Hope to see you there!
Looking for Your “God Story”! • During this summer’s sermon series, “Pardon The Interruption,” we are looking for persons to share a personal story (on video or live) about how God has interrupted your life and made amazing things happen. We are still looking for someone to share a personal story on video for July 16 (friendship and/or healing, Luke 5:17-39) and July 23 (God provides, Mark 6:31-44) Let Mariann Reinke or Pastor Mark know if you would be willing to share your story.
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, or a pair of shoes. The bulk of the mission guests are men, but there is a need for casual women’s clothing as well. Thank you for your faithful support as this is an ongoing need.
St. Luke Softball Team to be Revived
