Contributions received this year for Easter flowers will go toward the celebration we will have when we are gathered together for worship again.
Because of your generosity we are able to
 Keep St. Luke's Food Pantry Open

Thank you for your continued support of St. Luke's Food Pantry, both in requested grocery items and through your financial support. Your generosity has been heartwarming!

Here is a little update to keep you informed of what is going on.
This week 107 individuals received 35 food boxes through your continued generosity and support of St. Luke's Food Pantry. We extend great gratitude for your kind hearts.
Please continue to keep the needs of our community in your thoughts and prayers.
Due to Covid-19 being declared at peak across the nation this week we are asking you to NOT shop for the Pantry in order for YOU to stay safe. We will announce to you when we will be accepting food donations again!
Many of you have asked "how can I support St. Luke's
during this difficult time?"
The first thing we can all do is keep each other in our thoughts and prayer.
The second is to check on each other through phone calls, emails, text messages, etc.
Thirdly, at this time we need your financial support.
Pledges and plate offerings can be kept up to date by online giving click here for a one time or recurring donation.
You can also mail your offering, or if you just need to get out of the house,
go for a ride to St. Luke's and place your offering in the secured locked mailbox outside our parish office.
Thank you so much for supporting St. Luke's in this difficult time.
