The November newsletter is now available in the Connection Center, the Welcome Center, and on our website at stlukeumc.org
The staff has been overwhelmed by the kindness shown by the church family during this Staff Appreciation Month. We have been fed lunch on three successive Tuesdays, received countless cards, notes and letters, and many gift cards and other thoughtful gifts. We have truly felt appreciated and we are deeply grateful for everything that has been done. Thanks particularly to the Staff Parish Relations Team for leading in this month of celebration. You have made us feel loved, special and affirmed.

Help Us Update Our Prayer List
We love praying for people, but we would also like to keep the prayer list updated. Help us keep an updated prayer list by contacting the church office if you have a relative or friend in need of healing. Persons on the prayer lists will be automatically rotated out after one month unless the church has been notified otherwise.
