DECEMBER DINNER CHURCH
Join St. Luke’s for worship and a meal on Sunday, December 1, at 5:12PM in the Fellowship Hall. Please note on the back of your connection card how many people will attend with you. If you are able to provide food in portions that will feed 20 people, please sign up on the lists in the Narthex. This month’s meal will include chicken casserole, salad, rolls, and desserts.
FAITH, FRIENDSHIP, AND FUN
All K-4th Graders are invited to St. Luke’s on Thursday, December 14, from 5:30-7PM in our Fellowship Hall as we learn a Bible Story and enjoy a meal together. Afterwards, we will split into 3 rotation groups to complete our activities.
All Middle and High School Youth and their friends are invited to St. Luke’s First Annual Turkey Bowl on Sunday, November 24, from 4:30-6:30PM. Fantastic prizes will be given for bowling feats! We are on the hunt for 2 whole frozen turkeys, 2 frozen chickens, and 1 Cornish game hen.
Grab your ugly Christmas Sweater and join us for our second annual ARK Dash 5K and 1 Mile Nativity Scene Fun Run at St. Luke’s on Saturday, December 14, at 8:45AM. We are looking for Christmas Carolers to sing on the runners, and other Christmas Volunteers who would help take part in our Nativity Scene for the Fun Run. Register online at www.thearkofsc.org.
THANKSGIVING BASKET MINISTRY
St. Luke’s partners every year in November with other churches providing a turkey dinner for families living in Dorchester County who may be less fortunate or need a little help in providing a meal for their family get-together to give thanks to the Lord. Join us on Saturday, November 23, at 10AM to worship together at Summerville Presbyterian Church. Immediately after worship, at 11AM, we will pack Thanksgiving baskets and deliver them to families in our area. Last year, we delivered 360 Thanksgiving baskets. We are hoping to provide for 375 to 400 families. The baskets will cost around $40 each. Any donations you make are very appreciated as we go forth to shine Christ’s light in this community!
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Come to a packing party on Saturday, November 23, at 9AM in St. Luke’s Fellowship Hall. We hope to fill 300 shoeboxes for children, ages 2 – 14 and spread the love of Christ all across the world. The boxes will be delivered to the local collection site after services on Sunday, November 24. If your family is preparing a box, please bring it to church by that date. National Collection Week is November 18 – 24, so we will not be able to get boxes to the Processing Center after that date. Please join us as we will need plenty of volunteers to fill 300 boxes!
St. Luke’s Angel Tree will be placed in the sanctuary on November 24 just in time for all the After-Thanksgiving-Day sales. Organizations will pick up their gifts on Tuesday, December 17, so all gifts need to be in the sanctuary by December 15. We anticipate receiving about 100 angels from local charities – the same as last year – which means we will need as many church members as possible to take an angel. Please help us make this Christmas season a happy one for the children in our community. If you would like to help with this project, or if you have any questions, please contact the church office.
HOLIDAY BRASS CONCERT
On Friday, December 6, at 7:30PM, St. Luke’s will host the Charleston Symphony Orchestra Holiday Brass Concert. Tickets are available for purchase on the Charleston Symphony Orchestra website: charlestonsymphony.org.
