Announcements

From Sunday Bulletin for July 9, 2017

No Wednesday Eucharist and Bible Study, Wednesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 19.   Both will resume on Wednesday, July 26.

Foothill Unity Center Back to School Drive: The Back to School Drive will continue through July 17. Please see the flyer in the Narthex for a list of the items requested. There are two donation boxes in the Narthex.

Volunteers needed after coffee hour for the next couple of weeks: Since we are moving forward with the abatement of Guild Hall and the parish hall basement, we are going to need a crew of people to remove all furniture, art, and other objects that we want to save for storage in Swan Hall for the duration of the renovation. The abatement work will likely not begin until after July 21, so this process could be done in small batches by volunteers in the next couple of weeks on the days that work for them. Please advise Trish at trish.gresham@verizon.net what days and hours you might be available to assist with this process. We also hope to get volunteers from the local volunteer center.

Bring your children for Biblical lessons, fun activity crafts, free time, and fellowship (and enjoy some parental downtime).

The St. Luke’s Altar Guild is looking for new members.  This loving group’s ministry is to serve God in His house by preparing the Sanctuary for worship, maintaining and caring for the sacred vessels, altar linens, and vestments, and serving the clergy and the parish of St. Luke’s.  If you would like to be a part of this rewarding ministry, please contact Jeannett Armstrong or the church office. Training will be provided for all new members.

We continue to work with Foothill Unity Center to ensure that children in need throughout the San Gabriel Valley are able to go back to school with a backpack filled with the supplies they will need to thrive. We have large bins for school supplies donations, so go to your favorite store, shop and then drop them by St. Luke’s.

“Love Thy Neighbor” Buttons, highlighting our concern for the plight of refugees of all backgrounds, are available in the church office for purchase at $3 each. Proceeds support our outreach ministries.
