Contemporary Service at 10:35am
As we continue to foster a spirit of excellent worship here at St. Luke, we are going to move the 10:45 Contemporary service in the Fellowship Hall from 10:45 to 10:35 for Advent and for the foreseeable future. This is so we will be able to have Brian come in and physically preach at both this service as well as the two traditional Sanctuary services.
Updates to the St. Luke Line Newsletter
In order to communicate more effectively and to best utilize our resources at St. Luke, beginning in January 2020 we will convert the monthly newsletter to a seasonal newsletter. We will have seven newsletters a year. The first one will be released January 24 and will cover content through March. The following newsletters in 2020 will be in April for Easter/Lent, May/June, July/August, September, October/November, and December/Advent.
Kentucky United Methodist Children’s Home Fifth Sunday Offering
Our children’s homes need us more than ever before in the fight to save our children and families from the devastation from Kentucky’s Opioid Epidemic: The Facts– 1) The number child abuse victims removed from their homes in Kentucky is 3Xs higher than the national average. 2) The number of confirmed cases of child abuse/neglect in Kentucky has increased by 94% in the last four years. 3) Our Methodist Children’s Homes served over 800 children last year and are on track to serve more this year. Our Methodist Children’s Homes are asking us to make a renewed commitment to 1) pray for the children and 2) to generously support the Fifth Sunday Offerings. Please prayerfully consider a special gift for this 5th Sunday Offering.
