Yoga is Back! • Classes are Fridays at 9:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary lobby. You will need to bring your own yoga mat or large towel or any straps, blocks, or pillows you might need. Contact Carrie Rogers at email@example.com for more information.
Blue Barrel Sunday
This Sunday is Blue Barrel Sunday, the Sunday in which we bring in canned goods for our pantry and put them into the blue barrels. Please bring your Blue Barrel Bags filled with a variety of canned soups! On vacation or out of town? You can drop off your contributions any time by leaving at the Blue Barrels by door 3 or at the pantry.
Looking for Food Rescue Volunteers
A few weeks of experience has shown that it would be very helpful to have our own St. Luke Food Rescue volunteers to do the Tuesday and Thursday pick-ups from the Bryan Station Road Kroger’s. Pick up would need to be by 10 a.m. with food delivery to St. Luke around 11 a.m. Brief training would be provided. Several folks could share this task. For more information contact Karen Hinkle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lexington Legends Game for Young Adults

Guatemala Mission Trip Leaves next Sunday- We Need Your Help!
St. Luke is sending a team to Guatemala June 23-July 1 and we still need some arts and crafts supplies and financial donations. You can purchase a “share” in the mission trip for $20 in the Connection Center that will officially make you a part of the mission team. You will receive updates and be invited to a special dinner or lunch after the trip so we can tell you all about it. The supplies we are looking for are: kids scissors, crayons, embellishments, markets, Elmer’s glue bottles, and multi-colored construction paper. Please drop these donations in the bin at the table in front of the Café.
Volunteer in Worship this Summer
It’s summer, the kids are out of school, and the choir is on summer break! St. Luke has a tradition for members and friends to share their talents by providing Offertory music during the summer months. We are seeking talented persons of all ages to fill in the blanks on the sign-up list posted on the wall by the Connection Center for Sundays running through August 18. Please sign up or call Mariann with the dates you are available (firstname.lastname@example.org/419-494-3335). You will be contacted with further details.
