UMW Tea Party and Fashion Show this Saturday!

The St. Luke United Methodist Women cordially invite you to “Tea for a Cause” this Saturday, May 18 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Luke. Lunch and tea will be served and all proceeds for this fundraiser will benefit the scholarship program at Aldersgate Camp this summer. Donations are accepted!


Next Week is Blue Barrel Sunday!
Pick up a Blue Bag today and bring it back next week filled with varieties of canned and prepackaged fruit for our God’s Pantry.  Items can include applesauce, peaches, pears, pineapple, mandarin oranges, and fruit cocktail.  Fruit can be expensive so individual size containers work fine and multiuse packs are great.


Young Adult Red’s Game

St. Luke’s young adult and college groups are going to watch the Red’s play baseball on May 16th.  The game starts at 6:40 PM in Cincinnati so we plan to meet around 4:40 at church to carpool up to the game.  If you haven’t been involved in the past with our group this is a great event to jump in and get to know everyone! If you are interested please contact John Duff at jduff@stlukeumc.org.


Help Needed This Tuesday Afternoon

Tuesday, May 14, is the last Kids’ Cafe of the school year. We need extra hands to provide a brief pizza celebration in Fellowship Hall for the children and their families at 5:00. If you can help us anytime within the 4:00-6:00 time frame, please contact Sue Lord, 797-1586, suzannehlord@gmail.com.


Retirement Celebration for Pastor Mark

On Friday, May 31, at 6 pm, in the Life Center, we will celebrate Pastor Mark Girard’s retirement from the ministry after 38 years of dedicated service! What an accomplishment and a well-deserved send-off for Mark, Karen, and their family. We want to take this opportunity to thank Mark for his years of dedicated service not only to St Luke UMC but also all the churches he has served so faithfully during his time in the Methodist tradition. The SPRC is planning a fried chicken, green beans (Mark’s favorite), and mac & cheese menu supplemented by side dishes, salads or desserts from those who will be able to attend. We are also planning some time to share our favorite stories and memories of Mark and his impact on our lives. What we are asking everyone to do, even if you cannot attend this event, is to write cards, notes, letters of appreciation, etc. and drop them off in Venus’s office or put in the SPRC mail box. Love gifts are also welcome and should be given to one of the staff or SPRC members.

In order to help us plan, please RSVP the number in your family that will be attending, please mark your attendance on the sheet in the Connection Center or email mwalz@stlukeumc.org to let us know you will be there.
