Alpha is here!

Starting the Wednesday after Easter, Alpha will begin again.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Click here for an invitation to Alpha that you can email to friends, post on your facebook page, send out in Instagram or just print out and pass out.
Our hope is not just to offer this to those who have not done Alpha before at the church, but to invite friends, neighbors, even relatives that live near or far away to join us as we explore questions of faith, journey on the road to discovering what it's like to have Jesus in your life or just simply to have a better understanding of God’s plans and purposes.

We need to have sign ups in by Easter Sunday in order to know that we can proceed with Alpha this spring.

Please use this as your opportunity to spread the Good News! You won’t regret it and it could possibly be the thing that saves the lives of those you love.

Blessings,
Dan
Alpha is coming beginning April 7th and running thru June 16th. 

Alpha is a place to explore the Christian faith with others. It’s a series of conversations focused on the questions of life, faith, and meaning. 

This spring’s Alpha Course will be held online via Zoom, and now is the time to be thinking of those whom you would want to invite. There are a variety of pamphlet available on the Welcome board as well as flyers for you to post on Community bulletin Boards at area establishments.
We are also looking for people who would lead discussion groups during the meeting. 

Click here to register. If you are interested or would like more information, contact Dan or Jim Fulton.  

Come join the ladies at St. Luke's in the Common Room at 7:00 p.m. every other Tuesday beginning March 30th. The Study will be " The Faithful: Heroes of the Old Testament."
For questions, contact Linda Hartman.
Borrowing from best-selling studies by Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Lisa Harper, Kelly Minter, and Jennifer Rothschild, this 5 session study explores crucial moments in the lives of 5 Old Testament figures - Esther, Gideon, Malachi, Nehemiah, and Hosea. Through their stories, discover how God uses the lives of ordinary people for His glory and the good of His people. Strengthen your faith as you walk alongside these larger-than-life figures who all chose to obey God no matter the circumstances.

The outside work has been completed to help alleviate the moisture concerns in the basement. Now, we need to scrape and seal a couple of the inside walls. We are looking for volunteers to help with that project. Please email Kathy or call the church office to find out more details.
Thank you for your help!

Blood Drive at St. Luke's
On Friday, April 30, 2021, we will roll up our sleeves and partner with the American Red Cross to hold what we expect to be the first of many blood drives. The Red Cross has over 135 years of experience providing humanitarian aid including more than 75 years of supplying blood to those in need. 
Each pint of blood we collect can help save up to three lives and will touch the lives of so many more. What a great way to pay it forward and make an impact on people in our community and across the country. We are very excited about the drive and I hope you are too. 
If you have any questions, would like to reserve a time to donate blood, or would like to volunteer, please contact Jim Fulton. There are many ways you can help, but most importantly we hope you come out to donate.

There will be a table in the cafe this Sunday so you can sign up for a time slot to donate.

Akron Pregnancy Services will be holding their annual "Walk for Life" on Saturday, May 15th at 10 a.m. There will be a Kick-off meeting on Saturday, April 10th at 10 a.m. at Akron Pregnancy Services 105 E Market St. Suite 213, Akron for anyone wanting to represent St. Luke's. Considering walking in the "Walk for Life" this year to help raise money for and to show your support for unborn children.

The Clothing Shed
All the clothes you've been stashing in the corner of your spare room can now be brought to the Clothing Shed at the back of the church parking lot. With many of the thrift stores not accepting donations or having limited hours, it's a great place to donate gently used clothing and you'll be helping those in need, too!

Please tie the clothes into a bag (do not use boxes or put clothing in the shed un-bagged) and put in the slot to keep them safe and dry.
