Annual Fundraiser a SUCCESS

Thank you to all who came to our Luau fundraiser - it was a huge success!  A big thank you to our chefs: John Lenser, Michael Baranowski, George Livingstone, and Erich Miller.  All the many hands that helped decorate, set up, clean up, and work behind the scene.  The many donations of silent auction items, purchase of silent auction items, and cash donations were very much appreciated and will go toward the many needs of our church!


Coming in November - Pizza and Theology

A once month meetup for pizza and discussion on a given subject.  We will ask questions, give opinions, discover and grow together over theological subjects and scripture. If you would like to be involved please email Nicole so she can try to come up with a night that suits the majority’s needs. Nicole@stlukepres.org 


Women's Spirituality Group

Join Rev. Nicole for a Women’s Spirituality Group meeting on Friday mornings from 9:00-10:00am. Each week, we will gather in the conference room where Nicole will lead us with scripture or some other meaningful piece of writing as a jumping off point followed by a time of meditation.  It is through practice we deepen out faith. The “what we do, see, feel” matters.. The “how we listen, look, and communicate” becomes the stuff life and faith is made of.


Bible Study, Wednesday's from 9:30-10:30am

Welcome back! We are meeting again every Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30am for a look at the following Sunday’s scripture up close. Email Nicole to be added to her weekly Bible study email.  Nicole@stlukepres.org
