October 2nd - November 27th
Adult Formation: Feasting on the Word.  This interactive Bible study based on Sunday's scripture readings looks at the scripture from four vantage points: What is important to know, Where is God in these words, What does this mean for our lives, and What is God calling us to do?

Children's Formation: Combine classes to practice singing " I Sing a Song of the Saints of God" and La Fettucia
 (History of the Kingdom of God) in the Sanctuary. They will unroll the ribbon and discuss the time between creation, redemption, and Parousia. 
From Nancy Langlais

So many of you prayed for my son, Eddie, when he had a serious auto accident a few years ago, and I am so very grateful for all of you. 

He's beginning a new life now. He and Mary Ellen Collins will have their wedding here October 15th at 4 pm, and I want to extend a warm welcome to my St. Luke's family.

THE JOURNEY is a weekend retreat offered by Episcopal Cursillo in Arkansas that's designed to help enliven the faith of interested Christians so that they may begin to discover Jesus' will for their lives.  It focuses on how the resources of our faith strengthen and support our apostleship, and emphasizes those elements of doctrine and discipline which empower us to reach out.  The next Journey retreat is to be held October 21-23, 2016 at Camp Mitchell.   Registration deadline is October 12th. For more information, go to www.cursillo-ar.com or contact Registrar Betty Seymour at 501-319-7576 or bseymour52@gmail.com.

We will host a fall vet's dinner in the parish hall at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 27th.  Watch for the sign up in the narthex for ways that you may help with this dinner.  For more information, contact Dan Dennis.

Sing with Us

We have started learning the song "I Sing a Song of the Saints of God" in the preschool and elementary school Sunday School rooms this week. The song talks about how anyone can be a saint. Saints don't have special powers. They do amazing things, not because they are powerful, but because God is powerful, and it is God working through them who does the amazing things. We will be adding staging and costumes in the next few weeks. The children will perform before the 10:30 a.m. service Oct. 16. It's not too late to join us. We meet at 9:30 a.m. Sundays after breakfast but before classes in the basement under the parish hall.
Arkansas Youth Event

The Arkansas Youth Event (AYE) is Oct. 14-16, at Camp Mitchell. This is our fall weekend retreat open to 6th-12th grade youth from across the state.
