GETTING TO KNOW YOU: Our congregation is the heart and soul of St. Luke’s. Our Name Tag Program, thanks to the generosity of Steve Patterson, has played a big part in bringing our community even closer together. There is a sign up sheet for St. Luke’s name tags on the Hoie Hall foyer table. To all new parishioners, to those of you who may have misplaced your tags and even for those who may want a ‘spare’ to keep in the car — please sign up and an order will be placed in the near future. Get Your Name Tags. Wear Your Name Tags.
FACE IT: It’s a lot easier to remember people’s names if you have an image of what they look like. That’s why we are asking all parishioners to submit a digital photo of themselves to Tara Brinka at firstname.lastname@example.org for the 2020 Directory. Another option is to give a favorite photo to us — and we will scan and return it. Thirdly, if you do not have a flattering portrait, see Lys Marigold (10 o’clocker) or email: LAMarigold@aol.com who will iphoto you until you are pleased.
St. Luke’s is forming a Young Adults ministry group! If you would like to be involved, or just be placed on the email list, please contact Caroline Udelhofen at email@example.com.
Bible Study has resumed. The first of the two-volume work called Luke-Acts, the Gospel according to Luke is the third and longest of the four canonical gospels. During our time together, we will study this gospel as literature, history and theology. Meetings will be in the Vestry Room after the 10am service. For more information, contact Mother Leandra at firstname.lastname@example.org or 631.329.0990 x18. (Note that Bible study will resume on Jan. 30, 2019.)

East Hampton Food Pantry—Now is a chance to show our thankfulness to God in our generosity towards others for the Thanksgiving season! Please focus your donations on food for the Holiday—sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, carrots, beans, dinner rolls—any and all veggies and trimmings you can think of. Frozen chickens or turkeys can be dropped off directly to the food pantry Mondays through Thursdays. You can leave everything else in the bin in our hallway on Sunday, or drop them off at the office during the week.

If you would like to volunteer to prepare supper, join in holiday caroling, be an Inn Keeper or help with laundry: please text or e-mail Gaby Wessberg at 631-655-2135 or email@example.com.

It’s time to fill out and send in your pledge cards for 2018! Please join us in supporting our church.
Your commitment to the financial stability of St. Luke’s allows us to not only continue to “live our mission” but also to expand that mission. As the events in our world become more challenging, our work of sharing God’s message of peace and love has become even more important. St. Luke’s means many things to many different parishioners: an oasis of spiritual sustenance, an anchor when we find ourselves adrift in a culture of confusion, and a source of strength where we can be reminded and renewed by the power of God’s love. Think about what St. Luke’s means to you. And in the spirit of thanksgiving, join us in supporting the 2018 campaign by making your stewardship pledge.
St. Luke's Altar Guild, St. Luke's Fellowship Committee, and the Outreach Committee are all looking for new members and event volunteers. If you are able to lend your time and talents to any of these committees, please contact Charles Riggi at email@example.com for the Altar Guild; Janie Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Fellowship Committee; and Holly Whitmore at email@example.com for Outreach.
The Mercer School of Theology in Garden City has published its latest catalogue of courses. It is available in church and on the Hoie Hall table.

LAUNDRY LOVE PROGRAM IN AMAGANSETT Laundry is a basic need, because clean clothes and clean bedding give a sense of dignity and comfort. In Amagansett, the cost of laundry for a family of four is over $25 weekly. Your donations will help families and individuals in need to ease their family budget. Volunteers to help Fr. Gerardo are welcome. Checks can be made to St. Thomas Chapel, writing “Discretionary Fund” in the memo line. You can ask Fr. Gerardo for more details at 818-572-7082 or email@example.com
Living Legacy Society For those interested in providing for the welfare and future of our Church, St. Luke’s has a simple bequest program to help you help our Church by designating St. Luke’s a beneficiary in your will, trust or estate with this sample language that may be given to your attorney: “I give, devise and bequeath to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (insert amount, percentage of estate, nature of gift, or remainder of estate) to be used at the discretion of the Rector and the Vestry (or for a designated purpose).” Those who choose to notify the Church that they have done so, will be gratefully recognized for their commitment as members of the Living Legacy Society.
