HomeLife Event Calendar 
I am happy to compile events going on in the lives of our parishioners that they would like for other parishioners to support/attend, such as musical recitals, sporting events, business openings, craft shows, horse shows, etc.  
 
For example, if I had a booth at the Cherokee Art Festival and wanted everyone to support me, that could be something we could add to the weekly email, bulletin and/or website.  
 
Hope this explains what I am trying to do. People can send their events to me at scmbem@yahoo.com
and I can get them to you.  
 
Thanks! Shaun McEntire
   
Diaper and Wipes Drive
In honor of Mother's Day the DOK is sponsoring a parish wide diaper and wipes collection to benefit the mother's serviced by Eastern Area Community Ministries (EACM).    
 
Significant budget cuts have adversely affected EACM. Diapers and wipes are desperately needed as these items cannot be purchased with food stamps. Sizes most needed are size 4, 5, and 6. Wipes are also needed.  
 
Please leave your donations in Board Hall. Collection will continue from now until Mothers Day on May 12th.  
 
Your support is greatly appreciated! For questions contact Patti LaMontagne (502) 338-2472.

They are hardy for this climate and can be planted outside when they are finished blooming.
 
The deadline for ordering THIS Sunday, April 14, in order to get your memorial in print. Envelopes for the special memorials are located at both narthex entrance tables. The price per potted lily is $10.35.
 
Easter Music Memorials
You may make a memorial donation to the St. Luke's music program (please write Music Memorial on the memo line of your check).  
 
The deadline for placing your memorial THIS Sunday, April 14, in order to get your memorial in print though you may make a donation at any time.  
 
Envelopes for the special memorials are located at both narthex entrance tables.
 
St. Luke's Book Club 
YOU ARE INVITED to St Luke's Book Club on April 17 at 7:00. Our book selection for April is  The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri Nouwen, a Dutch-born theologian and priest, Yale and Harvard professor, and later pastor of a residential community for handicapped adults in Canada.

This tiny book relates the author's encounter with Rembrandt's "Prodigal Son", first in a poster and later the huge original oil in the Hermitage Museum in Russia. His analysis of the painting invites the reader to see  visually, intellectually, and spiritually and to follow Nouwen's own  journey to reconciliation with his faith. An approachable memoir, this is an engaging reading for Lent, a sermon gently illustrated with the inspiration of a deeply moving masterpiece of art.

MEETING INFO: Lyman House, April 17, THIRD (3rd) Wednesday monthly at 7:00 PM for 2+- hours of rousing conversations and introductions to books of almost every genre. At the end of each meeting, we discuss books for the next month's selection, so bring your suggestions with you. We invite you to join us!
 
Flowering of the Cross
Children, on Easter Day, please bring a few flowers (3 - 5) for the "Flowering of the Cross".  
 
When Fr. Michael invites you to, come forward and place your flowers onto our cross making it come "ALIVE".  
 
After the service, we will carry it outside in front of the church for the community to enjoy.
 
Decorating for Easter
The flower guild will be decorating the church on Saturday, April 20, at 9am.  
 
Everyone is invited to help. Please join us as it is a gratifying and fun time.
 
Undecorating the church
will take place on Sunday, April 28, following the 10am service.  
 
You may pick up your lilies in the parish hall at that time. Remember, they are hardy and can be planted outside.
