PARISH-WIDE ADVENT POTLUCK SUPPER All households of St. Luke are invited to a potluck supper taking place on Sunday at 5:30 PM. Come and socialize with your church family as preparation for upcoming Christmas holidays. See the decoration of the Jesse tree and hear the beautiful strains of children’s voices singing Advent carols. Find St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, reminding us of the simplicity of the heart. Please sign up for this event by marking the dish that you plan to bring to the potluck on the chart for this located in the west hall.

"GOOD GIFTS" Don't know what to give Aunt Elsie this Christmas, or your grandparents, or a best friend? How about a school teacher? "Good Gifts" is an alternate giving program that grows the church, fights hunger and transforms lives. Browse the catalog and select from more than 50 gift-giving options. Choose the gifts that mean the most to you or choose gifts in honor of friends or loves ones. I'm sure your grandparents would appreciate a goat given in their name that helps sustain a family's livelihood while providing great nutrition for children who are growing. Stop by the display located in the west hall and make your selection.
