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.
Clean Grocery Bags Needed for God’s Pantry • The pantry is in need of clean, used plastic grocery bags. If you have some that you can donate, please bring them and place them in the blue barrels or they can be dropped off at the pantry.
Collecting Donations for Kids’ Cafe • Kids’ Cafe is collecting used but like-new condition matchbox cars to use as rewards for children participating in Homework/Reading/Math activities this fall. If you have some to donate, please contact Sue Lord, 797-1586, email@example.com.
St. Luke University • All incoming freshmen, and any college students at St. Luke are invited to our College Ministry Fall Kick-Off on August 12th. We will be taking a day trip to the Red River Gorge for a hike and then will come back to Lexington for a cook-out at the church at 5:30. Please come to the cook out even if you are not interested in hiking with us! Contact John Duff at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
