Save the Date – New Women’s Bible Study
All women are welcome to join us in this seven-week study on “First Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree” by Melissa Spoelstra beginning in September. Participants are asked to purchase their own books for a price of $10. To purchase a book or if you need to have a book supplied for you, please contact Francie Sewell at email@example.com. This study will be on Wednesdays beginning September 7 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
This Sunday we will bring our gifts of shoes and clothing to worship service and place them on the altar. They will be distributed Sunday afternoon to students in St. Luke outreach programs. If you will not be in worship Sunday, be sure you bring your gifts early and leave them with a volunteer or staff member so they can be secured.
Pizza With The Pastor – This Wednesday
We have had a great time celebrating the 40th Anniversary of St. Luke United Methodist Church this year, with still several events yet to go. In 40 years, St. Luke has grown to be a great church. The St. Luke family is a rich and diverse group of committed followers of Christ. Pastor Mark wants to hear your hopes and dreams and ideas for the ministry of the church. That will be the purpose behind “Pizza With The Pastor”. Pastor Mark will bring the pizza and you bring your hopes, dreams, and ideas, and we will share together. These will not be “gripe” sessions but rather times of Holy Conversation around how we can make a strong church even stronger. Our first “Pizza With The Pastor” will be this Wednesday, August 10 at 6:00 P.M. in the Life Center Café. We are hoping that we will make this a monthly gathering and that each month we will focus on a different area of the ministry of the church that is on the “front burner.” This first time we will be having conversation around worship at St. Luke. We know that many of you have some great ideas concerning how to make worship even better and we would love to hear those as we move forward. So come, let’s share a pizza and have a great conversation about worship at St. Luke this Wednesday, August 10 at 6:00 P.M.
