Following recent tradition, Stewardship Sunday will include youth led worship and the preparation of a stone soup. This is the day that pledge cards will be distributed together with the 2014 budget. There will be a single service at 10:00am on the 24th, followed by a meeting and soup. There will be plenty to talk about.I ask that the cards be returned the following week, the first Sunday of Advent at both services.

Each year St. Luke’s provides the elementary schools with food baskets for their needy students. This year we will do 10 baskets. A list is posted on the office door with the items needed and the amount. Monetary donations will allow us to purchase items that have not been donated and helps reduce duplications. We will be happy to accept “green” donations and do the shopping for you. All contributions are needed by Nov. 21st. Please be as generous as you can.
Baskets will be assembled on Sunday, November 24th, following Stone Soup.
On Sunday, October 13th Bishop Howard held Confirmation Services for Diana Kosti, Brian Turnan, Cameron Simpson, Bishop Howard, Sarah Beth Lee, Melissa Lee, John Taylor, and Abbey Taylor.
Attention Children,Youth, and Parents
Sunday, November 24 will be youth Sunday at St. Luke’s, with our children and youth taking over many liturgical duties. There will be only one service at 10:00 a.m. The children and youth will present a program at the time nor- mally set aside for the sermon, as well as assuming the responsibility for reading scripture lessons, singing, and serving as ushers. We will also be making “Stone Soup” for the congregation to enjoy after the service. More details will be forth coming regarding the stone soup.
Building up the Body of Christ, the Church, only happens when we invest and plant seeds for the future. Please pray for God to in- spire volunteers for this purpose. Sunday School will begin as the Spirit moves our volunteers, Please see Fr. George if you have questions or are interest in serving.
