Blue Barrel Sunday
Next week is the Sunday that we all try to fill the Blue Barrels with donations for our God’s Pantry Food Bank. Take home a Blue Barrel Bag today and bring it back next week filled with miscellaneous canned veggies (we do not need corn or green beans). On vacation or out of town next week? You can drop off your contributions any time by leaving at the Blue Barrels by door 3 or at the pantry.
Support St. Luke Through Your Kroger Purchases
St. Luke receives FREE MONEY from Kroger as part of Kroger’s Community Rewards program! Every time you shop at Kroger and swipe your Kroger Plus card, the church earns money! It does NOT take away any of your gas points or increase the price you pay for any items, but you must sign up! Since we began participation in the program in 2014, St. Luke has received $23,109.99 FREE MONEY! The more people we have participating, the bigger our community rewards check! Just go to Kroger.com/CommunityRewards, sign in to your Kroger account (or create one if you need to), click “I’m a Customer,” click “Enroll,” type in “St. Luke UMC,” and click “Enroll.” If you need assistance, don’t have a computer, or just don’t want to deal with it, Dawn will do it for you! We make it so easy to participate! Simply fill out a “Kroger Community Rewards” form, available at the Welcome and Connection Centers.
