This is the fourth year that we have provided gifts for these special children and youth and the response of our St. Luke's family has been wonderful! Thank you for helping us to make this an ongoing tradition, and for sharing the light of Christ's love with these special children and youth!

Altar Flower Memorials for 2019
It's time to renew your dates for 2019 altar flower memorials. Letters with order forms have gone out to the previous year's donors.

Please respond promptly since renewals are honored first. New donors are also welcome and encouraged to respond with a date!

Please call Dawn at the church office at 245-8827 so we can gather all necessary information.

Christmas Memorials
This year we will continue our tradition of decorating the church for Christmas with memorial poinsettias and large wreaths, as well as memorializing loved ones through contributions for special Christmas music. Special envelopes are available at both Narthexes specifying your gift for either poinsettia, wreath, or music. Please indicate if it is in MEMORY of or in THANKSGIVING of someone and list their names clearly.   The deadline to receive all memorials is Sunday, December 9.
Poinsettia Memorials - the cost for poinsettias is $8 per plant with the deadline for ordering is Sunday, December 9. Envelopes are at both narthexes.
Wreath Memorials - We will again be hanging large wreaths inside the church on the stone walls between the windows. The cost for each wreath is $90. We hope parishioners will help subsidize this decorating effort by donating for a wreath, or part of one, in memory of a loved one or in thanksgiving. The deadline for this memorial is Sunday, December 9. Envelopes are at both narthexes.
Music Memorials - Give to our wonderful music program as God plants in your heart. You may give throughout the year to the music program, but in order to get your memorial in print, the deadline is Sunday, December 9. Envelopes are at both narthexes.
St.Luke's Book Club 
YOU ARE INVITED to St Luke's Book Club on December 18 at 6:00. Our book selection for December is The Book Thief written by Markus Zusak. This is a wonderfully unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.  A foster girl in 1939 Nazi Germany scratches out a meager life by stealing when she encounters something she cannot resist--books, which she shares with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.  Intense, both enduring and endearing, the kind of book which can be life-changing!  If you enjoy reading you will most certainly empathize with this selection.
MEETING INFO : Lyman House, December 18, THIRD (3rd) Tuesday monthly at 6:00 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.
Christmas Hams 
Perfect for Christmas celebrating - Hickory Smoked 'Bourbon Honey Glazed' Spiral Sliced Hams, average weight is 10 lbs., $44.95.

To order: email or call the church office at 245-8827.

100% of proceeds go to Outreach needs in Kentucky.

Your order must be received by 3:00pm on Wednesday, December 19. Pick-up is at church Saturday, December 22 from 9:00am to noon.

Christmas Decorations 
The decorating of the church with poinsettias and wreaths for Christmas will be after the
Sunday 10am service, December 23.  
We request that as many of you that are willing and able, please come out and help.
