Sunday we welcome Liz Beal Kidd and Laura Ross, our very-soon-to-be staff for our Children, Youth and Family Ministry. They will be introduced at both services and will be hanging around with us On the Lawn after the 10 a.m. worship service. Please stop by to say hello. They begin their ministry among us on July 1.  
This Summer you are invited to hang around on Sundays after worship for refreshment - the food kind as well as the fellowship kind - and some fun. No set “program” as each Sunday will bring something new -- so plan to join us on the lawn .

Tomorrow: Welcome our new CYF staff | Tai Chi and yoga
Be sure to dress casually for church if you're going to try tai chi or yoga --and please bring a mat or towel. Thank you to Donna Church and Leslie Muscarella!
In the Hamilton Room and Garden
This is a time of community for children age 4 years old to rising 5th graders while their parents (grandparents, etc) are attending the 9 a.m. Forum. There will be crafts, stories and free play. For everyone's safety, an adult must sign in the children and pick them up at 9:45 a.m.
Wiggle Church ... in June and July, parents (or grandparents or loved ones) are welcome to head to the Hamilton Room and Garden, where the service will be broadcast, if their little ones need some wiggle room during worship. All children -- even wiggly, vocal ones - are ALWAYS welcome in worship! This is just another option for those who find it a good one.
The season starts tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. on the north soccer field 2-A at the Active Oval in Piedmont Park. If you’re playing, wear a red shirt and bring your own hydration -and family and friends to cheer us on! We will have a cooler of ice, hot dogs and chips. Please email Mignon Crawford ( ) or Keith Roberts ( ) if you are interested in playing. League rules require players to be 21, but our fans can be any age!

In June and July, we are Filling the Outreach Baskets for Midtown Assistance Center (MAC). For more than thirty years, MAC has helped the working poor during times of crisis. The food pantry at MAC is especially taxed in the summer months when children are home and not receiving breakfast and/or lunch at school. Here are the most requested items:

    Chicken noodle soup •  Peanut butter & jelly  •  Breakfast/snack bars 
Cereal  • Canned meat

A complete list of items needed to stock the pantry is online at . Please remember that people leaving MAC with groceries will most likely carry them home on foot or public transportation, so please no super-size items. There are baskets for your donations in the Narthex and the Reception Area.
God calls us each by name.
Please wear your name tag to help us call one another by name, too. If you don’t have a name tag, you may request one at the Reception Desk outside the Parish Hall. Thank you for being a part of St. Luke’s community!
