MEN’S NIGHT OUT
: The forth Tuesday in each month. The grill will be hot and ready to cook. Bring your own steak, chicken, or fish and your favorite refreshment. We will provide the salad, a few snacks, paper products, cups, etc. Each of us is asked to contribute a few bucks to the kitty to cover expenses. .

The monthly gatherings of the St Luke’s men were meant to be light, friendly and free from any heavy agenda. The evenings were meant to have a simple format; there would be prayer, a treasurers report, news from members and a discussion about what we might do with our money because each member was asked to toss in a few bucks to the kitty.
After three full years of meeting each month it can be reported that the men are still on track with their original format. On the 4thTuesday of each month at 6pm, we experience friendly smiles, light conversation, gentle kidding and an all around pleasant atmosphere around the BBQ grill. The BBQ grill, shared with other groups at church was our first purchase. Then we sponsored a team to com-pete in the Holy Smoke BBQ Throw Down at Camp Weed. They won a ribbon and another one this year! The men have cooked for shrove Tuesday, Deacon Phyllis’ class, Grace Mission in Tallahassee and for our own youth. Recently the men spon-sored a hole in the name of St Luke’s for the Camp Weed Open Golf Tourney and contributed gifts to our graduating seniors. There were contributions made to help with Thanksgiving baskets in the past and more.
There is something very special about these dinners each month. Sharing the same fire and the same table is an ancient gesture of trust, hospitality and openness. Much can be accomplished in such an environment and as you can see much has been done. What are our plans for the future? To keep our original format of simplicity and to help where we can. Wait, there is one more goal…to remember who is bringing the salad next time?!
