2018 Coat Donation Program 'Mega' success!
Thank you very much to the St. Luke's parish for their generosity this year. On Black Friday St. Luke's delivered 98 coats to the downtown distribution locations. This is our largest donation and perfect timing as the cold weather rolls in.  
 
All coats are given to walk-in recipients on Black Friday and the few left over are given to non-profit organizations for distribution throughout the winter.  
 
This will be recorded in the St. Luke's Brotherhood of St. Andrew Outreach report for 2018.

The Annual Anchorage Yule Log Lighting & Carol Sing
The Anchorage Garden Club is sponsoring the Yule Log Lighting and Carol Sing at Hobbs Chapel, Sunday, December 2 at 6pm with the snow/rain date Monday, December 3 at 6pm.  
 
Be sure to bring candles and guards. Be a part of a longstanding Anchorage tradition and join us for an old-fashioned, good time!
 
Angel Tree 
Holiday greetings St. Luke's family! Our parish family will again be providing Christmas gifts for ten children & youth who reside at Uspiritus. The Angel Tree has been set up in the narthex (closest to Board Hall).  Please prayerfully consider selecting one of the angels from the tree. Please have all UNWRAPPED gifts back to the church or office by Sunday, December 9.
 
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!

Advent Wreaths 
All are welcome to gather in Board Hall on
December 1 at 6:30 pm and December 2 during the 9am Faith Formation hour to festively welcome in the season of Advent by making fresh Advent wreaths.  
 
This was such a well-received event the last couple of years that we have decided to make this an annual tradition here at St. Luke's.  
 
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.
 
Christmas Hams 
Perfect for Christmas celebrating - Hickory Smoked 'Bourbon Honey Glazed' Spiral Sliced Hams, average weight is 10 lbs., $44.95.

To order: email admin@stlukesanchorage.org 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.

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 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.

Save the date to un-decorate   the church on
January 6, 2018, after the 10am service.  
 
Remember, many hands makes quick work, and more fun!   Thank you!!
