Stewardship Reminder: 

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.


Prayer List—We will be editing the prayer list on the first Sunday of each month. If you would like to place a name on the list, or ask us not to remove one, please call or email the office this week.


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 chazriggi@optonline.net for the Altar Guild; Janie Miller at miller7janie@gmail.com for the Fellowship Committee; and Holly Whitmore at htwanew@yahoo.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.

 

Brown Bag Lunch program continues. Lunches are prepared and delivered to unemployed day laborers three times a week. We make sandwiches on Thursdays at 9AM in St. Luke’s kitchen for distribution on Fridays and Saturdays.  If you are able to help, please join us on Thursdays or contact Holly Whitmore at 267-7852 or Father Gerardo at (818) 572-7082 or at padregerardoromo@gmail.com. 

 

St. Luke’s needs additional greeters for the 8am and 10am services on Sundays. There is a signup sheet for the 8am service on the table outside Hoie Hall. Anyone who might be interested in volunteering for the 10am service should contact Sandy Conklin at 631-324-5387. Your help would be greatly appreciated!

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 padregerardoromo@gmail.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.
