SUMMER OF SERVICE
This June, St. Luke’s invites you to take part in our Summer of Service. There will be outreach opportunities throughout the summer months in which you may take part. The kickoff for our summer service projects will include the distribution of Random Act of Kindness Cards to all in attendance on Sunday, June 3. Pick up these cards and help us take them out along with our own acts of kindness to show the love of Christ to others in the community.
The Summer is just around the corner, and St. Luke’s is once again excited to offer Lutheroad Day Camp on July 30-Aug 3 for kids who have completed Kindergarten through 5th Grade. Registration forms are available in the Narthex, and space is limited to 40 children, so secure your spot today.
SUMMER FOOD DRIVE
As a part of our summer of service, St. Luke’s is holding a Food Drive at Mr. K’s Piggly Wiggly on Saturday, August 11 and Saturday, August 18, from 10AM-2PM. Volunteers may sign up to help us collect canned goods at Mr. K’s. All donations we collect will benefit the Lowcountry Food Bank.
BACK TO SCHOOL BLESSING
Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 19, when St. Luke’s will have our annual Back to School Blessing at both worship services. All students, teachers, and school personnel will be invited to bring a school bag, keys, jersey, or other school-related item to be blessed as we head into a new year of studies.
MEET OUR NEW MISSIONARIES
St. Luke’s has a long history of supporting missionaries through the Global ELCA. This year, we are proud to announce that we are supporting a missionary couple named Curtis and Katie Kline, who are serving in Colombia, which is one of South Carolina’s Companion Synods abroad. Katie and Curtis will be visiting St. Luke’s on Thursday, July 5, at 6PM to tell us about their work in Colombia. Come out to meet them and hear of how our support dollars are used to spread the Good News of Christ in Colombia. To find more about Katie and Curtis, check out their blog 8000 Feet And Counting.
YOUTH TACO AND KARYOKE NIGHT
On Sunday, July 22, the youth at St. Luke’s are hosting a Taco and Karyoke night at 6PM in the Fellowship Hall. All donations will go to help Beloved, which is a Synodically Authorized Worshiping Community for parents and children with disabilities in Columbia, SC.
Anyone who wants to sing in the choir, learn a little about music, or satisfy that question, “I wonder what it would be like to sing…” is invited to join us on Saturday, July 28, for a Choir Workshop from 9AM-12PM. St. Luke’s new Director of Music Ministries, Chad Martin, will introduce basic vocal technique and begin working on many of the anthems we will sing in the Fall. No experience needed. Please call the church office by Wednesday, July 25, if you are interested in singing with us.
