Come celebrate the ministry of
Dick Rasner, our Deacon, on July 2nd!
After a long and distinguished career here at St. Luke's, Dick has decided to return to family and friends in Cincinnati.
Throughout his time here, Dick has worked tirelessly as both Senior Warden and Deacon to fill any and all needs of the congregation and the community - and there have been many. During his tenure as a Deacon, Dick has transformed St. Elizabeth's Pantry into an important resource in the community, culminating in the pantry being designated a Jubilee Ministry.   He has touched each of our lives through his caring ministry and of course, by sharing the Gospel with us on Sundays.
Please join him on July 2nd to thank Dick for all he has done and to wish him well.
If you would like to help make this celebration special, please contact George Cooper, Senior Warden, at

Creation Care
Did you know the United Nations estimates that by 2050 there will be more refugees from climate change than from war? 
To fight climate change and reduce your carbon footprint (and your energy bills), complete a home energy audit:   (Tip provided by ) St. Lukan Marby Payson made energy efficiency a top priority when she downsized her home. She chose a condo in an energy efficient building and makes her own carbon footprint even smaller by using low energy lighting.
