Sunday Breakfast
Breakfast this Sunday, August 18, will be provided by guest chef, Priscilla Bond.
   
 
Our Sunday class topic is on "The Roots of Christian Mysticism". Taught by Father Michael and Jon Siegrist, this course will last for several weeks.
 
Please plan on joining everyone in Board Hall between 8:30am and 9:45 where you will not only enjoy great food but a time for fellowship.   
   
Special Parish Meeting  
On Sunday, August 25th, we will hold a Special Parish Meeting at 10:15am.  As we do in January for our Annual Parish Meeting, our two Eucharist on Sunday morning, at 8:00 & 10:00, will be combined into one service at 9:00.  Our Saturday evening Eucharist at 5:30 will happen as scheduled. 

The first purpose of this meeting is to give you a detailed update on the Anchorage City Council meeting that's coming up on August 12th and, depending on the results of that meeting, discuss likely next steps.  Hopefully, those next steps will involve a ceremonial groundbreaking soon!   As you know, we've been asked to make several changes to the exterior of the Board Hall extension, and have modified our designs several times in order to obtain approval from the Historic Commission. 

So the second purpose of this meeting, now that we have this final design, is to share it with you.  I'd like to emphasize that the exterior changes have not impacted the interior spaces. 

You probably also have questions, which we will answer as best we can.  

Thank you.  I look forward to a fruitful and, hopefully, a joyous gathering.   --  Michael

SAVE THE DATE!! 
On Friday, September 13th at 7:00pm, the Rt. Rev. Terry Allen White, Bishop of Kentucky, will, God willing, ordain the Rev. Allison Caudill to the Sacred Order of Priests here at St. Luke's

More details will be forthcoming in the weeks to come.  Ordinations are relatively rare events in the life of a parish, and they are incredibly powerful spiritual experiences, so I hope we can all be together that night .

Lemonade on the Lawn is back! 
Meet us on the front lawn after the 10am service for refreshments and mingling.  
 
Get to know those you've never met before and talk to those you do know. It's a great time for all.

This is a FUN way to MEET and GREET others! 

 
Wednesday Evening Worship Resumes 
Our Wednesday worship will resume on August 21st at 6:00pm, and we'll be making some changes to how we've done it before. 

First, we'll start with a brief sing-along with hymns from a wide-range of sources, including many familiar favorites not in our regular Hymnal. 

Then we'll move on to Evening Prayer and Holy Communion.  In the past, this entire service was said, but we will start chanting at least one piece of this liturgy.  For those who think they can't sing, don't let this ward you away.  Trust me, you'll enjoy it more than you might think. 

Only a very small percentage of people are truly "tone-deaf," and if you can sing along with the radio, where the songs are designed to be sung by a single person instead of a crowd of people, then this sacred music, which is specifically designed to be sung by everyone, will be well within your range.  And besides, the Psalm says, "Make a joyful noise." 

Look forward to seeing you at our midweek worship soon.

Sing Along 
Let's get together for a Sing-Along on Monday, August 26th at 6:30pm in the Church. There are only so many hymns we can sing during worship every weekend.  This will give us a chance to enjoy some of our favorites that we don't get to sing very often. 

In addition to the Hymnal 1982 and Songs of Praise and Worship, we'll have a selection of several dozen pieces to choose from that aren't in either of those books.  Golden oldies you might have grown up on, especially if you were once Baptist, Methodist, etc., like "Because He Lives," "How Great Thou Art," "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms," and many, many more.  We sing about an hour, longer if we like.

Now accepting students for Fall 2019 for piano, voice or organ study.  Please contact Lisa Lewis for details at 502-593-8417 or music@stlukesanchorage.org

Feel free to share with friends and neighbors!
