Sponsor-A-Bag is an on-going opportunity for individuals to support Stage 4 Ministry with the making and delivery of our Comfort Bags.


Sponsor-A-Bag was introduced to the community at-large in an article in the West Side Leader. (CLICK HERE to read the article)


Individuals have been invited to make a General Donation or a Sponsor-A-Bag donation through St. Luke's website. Those that chose to make a minimum donation of $35, and label it as a Sponsor-A-Bag donation, will have the opportunity to have their name included on the gift tag on the Comfort Bags.

Linda has many self-helps for your use in her studio including the stencils and stamps she used in creating her own journal pages.

The Glory Barn is located at 4780 Medina Rd. in Copley.

Bent But Not Broken


Many of you know Fr. Aaron Eime and his family as missionaries in Israel who St. Luke's has supported for many years.


You may not know that two of their chlidren, Atarah and Tirzah, have been diagnosed with scoliosis, and have been undergoing treatment for the last two years.

Recently, routine x-rays taken to examine the degree of curves and see how the Pilates and chiropractic sessions have been working. In Atarah’s case there was no change whatsoever, her scoliosis has not improved nor declined but all the hard work has only maintained her moderate curvature position. Unfortunately, in Tirzah’s case despite all the hard work of bi-weekly Pilates sessions, regular trips to the chiropractor, and a daily exercise routine, things have only gotten worse, most noticeably in the past 6 months. Something else is causing the rapid progression of Tirzah’s curves, and the diagnosis is Marfan Syndrome. 


The Eimes have initiated a Go Fund Me account, “Help get Tirzah straightened out!”, to help cover the costs of the treatment and travel to specialist in London. Tirzah is booked in to start on February 6th at the Scoliosis SOS Clinic. Aaron will accompany Michelle, Atarah, and Tirzah to London get them settled in and then return to Jerusalem


They would appreciate prayers and sharing the Go Fund Me link with anyone you think may be interested in helping their family.
