We want to take time in worship on next Sunday to recognize/honor our graduates. If you have loved ones who are graduating at high school equivalent or above, please notify the church office by tomorrow morning. We would like to have a picture of each graduate that we can display on the screen during worship and the full details of their graduation to include in the bulletin.
Alms Fund Resumes Program
St. Luke’s Alms Fund is now taking applications from people in need. Applications will be accepted from non-church members in the 40517 zip code area between Tates Creek and Richmond Roads. Priority is given to those living closest to the church. In addition church members may recommend other individuals living in the Lexington area who do not live in this zip code area. The St. Luke member’s name must be written on the application form. No application forms will be accepted by fax or email. Persons seeking assistance must come in person to the church to receive and turn in the necessary forms, as well as meet with committee members. The Alms committee is always looking for church members who are interested in serving in this very special ministry!
Retirement and Appreciation Dinner for Paul Bramel
We would like to invite the St. Luke family to attend an Appreciation and Retirement Dinner for Paul Bramel on Friday, June 3 to thank him for his years of service and dedication to St. Luke. It is truly a joy to honor him. It will be held in the St. Luke Gymnasium starting at 6:00 pm. We will provide fried chicken and ask all those who attend to bring a side dish, salad, dessert, etc. We would also like to be able to present him a gift card for a trip of his choice. If you would like to contribute, please bring your gift to Mark Walz or leave it in the basket that will be placed at the Connection Center. Hope to see you there to give Paul a wonderful retirement celebration!
New Sunday Morning Study
The Genesis Class will begin a 6 week video and discussion series using Philip Yancey’s book, Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? The series will begin Sunday, May 22nd. Yancey will help us explore and experience the very heartbeat – the most fundamental, challenging, perplexing, and deeply rewarding aspect – of our relationship with God: prayer. Yancey says, “Prayer is the act of seeing reality from God’s point of view.” Join us in Room 126 at 9:45 am for this engaging study!
Don’t miss out on the celebration! Get your St. Luke 40th anniversary commemorative items! T-shirts, stainless steel coffee tumblers, and insulated water tumblers, all with a special 40th anniversary logo, are now available in the Connection Center. Get yours today!
Three Guys Praying
Every Tuesday night for the past 20 years, three St. Luke men, plus other prayer warriors, have met to pray for specific needs and concerns. Would you like someone praying for your concern? Simply send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome to gather for prayer in the chapel (Room 2) off Fellowship Hall Tuesday nights 6:00–7:00 pm.
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.
