SUNDAY NIGHT LIVE
Join us on Sunday evenings, October 7, November 11, and December 2, at 6:12PM in the Fellowship Hall for our new Praise Worship Service of Holy Communion. This service will have the same elements of our regular Sunday Morning worship experience, only it will use a different style of music, and will include visual and/or interactive elements in the sermon. Come check it out! It’s a different kind of worship service at a different kind of time.
RELAY FOR LIFE
St. Luke’s Relay for Life group is baking pies for Thanksgiving. They will have homemade apple pies and pumpkin pies for $15. Pecan pies will be $20. You may order and prepay for them through November 4. Order forms will be in the Narthex or the Church Office. Pickup will be on November 18 in the Fellowship Hall from 10AM-12:30PM. All funds go to help fight cancer. Please make checks payable to the American Cancer Society.
THANKSGIVING BASKET PROJECT
St. Luke’s partners every year in November with other churches providing a turkey dinner for families living in Dorchester County that may be less fortunate or need a little help in providing a meal for their family get-together to give thanks to the Lord. This year, we welcome Murray United Methodist Church along with Summerville Presbyterian, Good Shepherd Episcopal, and Summerville Baptist Church to help in this program. Summerville Baptist Church will host the event. Last year we delivered 360 Thanksgiving baskets. We are hoping to provide for 375 to 400 families. The baskets will cost around $35.00 each. We appreciate your donations to help us help others this Thanksgiving.
Remember to wear red for worship on Sunday, October 28, when we will celebrate a Festival Worship Service of Holy Communion for Reformation Sunday! Also, later that evening, the annual Community Reformation Service will be held at 5PM at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church.
Put on your Halloween Costume and bring your friends to St. Luke’s for our Annual Trunk-or-Treat on Friday, October 26, at 5:30PM.
LITTLE FOOD PANTRY
Are you interested in helping the hungry people in our community? Consider picking up some food to add to St. Luke’s Little Food Pantry on our front lawn. Things such as soup, applesauce, small pop-top cans of fruit, tuna pouches, and Vienna sausage, along with peanut butter and crackers are good things to put in the box.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
This year, Operation Christmas Child is celebrating 25 years of sending God’s love to young children around the world. Shoeboxes full of small gifts were sent to over 115 million children in 114 countries in 2017. St. Luke’s sent 217 boxes. We hope to fill at least 250 shoeboxes in 2018. A simple shoebox filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies tangibly demonstrates God’s love to a child in need. Please place your items in the box provided in the Narthex.
