WHAT'S HAPPENING AT ST LUKE?
RETURN TO INSIDE WORSHIP
Sunday, November 1, 2020
We have set November 1 as our first day back in the building for Sunday worship. Traditional Worship will be held at 8:30 am and Contemporary Worship at 10:30 am. Both services will be in the Fellowship Hall to allow more people to worship while physically distanced. Reservations and face coverings will be required. Both services will be live streamed to allow you to worship from home.
In preparation for worship inside, we need volunteers who can help set-up chairs on Fridays. Click the button to sign up or call the church office.
FAMILY FALL FESTIVAL

We cannot wait to come together in a safe way to celebrate Fall together! Join us for a night of pumpkin carving, crafts, costumes, candy and snacks and an OUTDOOR MOVIE with your family. All are welcome and we encourage you to invite friends and register with families you want to sit with.
Tables will be spaced out to ensure physical distancing and we encourage you to bring blankets and chairs! Pumpkins, carving supplies, crafts, food and movie all provided. Wear your favorite costume and receive a special goodie bag and be entered in our costume contest!

22 spots remain, so register today!
Face coverings will be required.

CHOOSE HOPE
October Fundraiser to Support LSS Choices Domestic Violence Shelter
For victims of domestic violence, asking for help can be one of the most difficult steps to take. Fear, uncertainty, even shame can be overwhelming. But when victims do reach out for help, they Choose Hope!
You can Choose Hope by making a gift today to support LSS CHOICES and those they serve. Together, we can help break the cycle of domestic violence! Our goal is to raise more than $2,000 in the month of October to support LSS CHOICES, the only Domestic Violence Shelter in Franklin County.
Ways to donate:
  • Click on the donate button to give online directly to LSS Choices or
  • Make a check out to St. Luke Lutheran Church and add "CHOICES" in the memo line.
