Annual Fundraiser, October 1st

Put on your Aloha Shirt. Get ready to Hula! The Annual St. Luke Fundraiser Dinner is going Hawaiian this year with a Gourmet Luau. The event will be held in the Bayview Room. You were mailed a letter and sign up form last week. They can be picked in the church office if you need a copy. Please contact John Lenser (john@lenser.com) or Carolee Mech (caroleemech@comcast.net) for information. This is a great opportunity for excellent food, good conversation, and warm fellowship. Introduce your friends to St. Luke by inviting them to be your guests at the dinner!

Strategic Planning Committee Meetings


We have a final meeting coming up on August 20th. Many of you have graciously agreed to serve on a committee. The hope is that we can all meet for an hour and a half after worship and brainstorm about individual visions and goals as it pertains to our larger mission of the church.



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

On break for the summer.  We will resume late summer and ALL are welcome! We meet every Wednesday or every other or once a month 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


Women's Association

Regular monthly meetings are now held the second Thursday (new day) of the month September through June. For more information please call Jean McKechnie at 415-454-4449 email jeanmck@prodigy.net OR the church office at 415-454-2705 office@stlukepres.org.
