Blessing of the Animals

Please join us on Saturday, October 3rd from 12 to 2pm on the beautiful St. Luke grounds for a Blessing of the Animals.  We invite you to bring your pet (or a picture of your pet) to receive a blessing.  There will be two blessings including some fun music, one at 12:30pm and one at 1:30pm.  Food and soft drinks will be available.

This event highlights our Deacons Ministry for September and October, Jessica's Haven.  Jessica's Haven is a local non-profit whose "mission is to be a small dog rescue that offers vocational and social opportunities to individuals with disabilities – we prefer saying people with different abilities. Our rescue dogs benefit from being socialized, bathed, walked, played with and love all the attention received from our program’s participants. Our growth potential is staggering- with your help!"  

You may make donations to Jessica's Haven and learn more information about their special and important program at this event.


Welcome Gift for First-time Visitors!

The deacons have a welcome gift for all first-time visitors to St. Luke - a St. Luke coffee cup engraved with our logo and website address.  These cute cups filled with goodies will be passed out at the Sunday worship services!

If you would like your own St. Luke coffee cup - they are for sale at $10 for one or $15 for 2.  They make excellent gifts too!  Ask a deacon how you can be a proud owner!

Deacons Serve BVIM Monthly Luncheon

As part of the Deacons ministry, the Deacons have been highlighting the Blind and Visually Impaired of Marin during the months of May and June.  On Saturday, June 13th, they provided and served lunch for BVIM's monthly meeting.  

Since the early 1980's, BVIM has been providing support services to the blind and visually impaired.  Currently they have six support groups throughout the County as well as art classes (with the aid of the Marin Society of Arts), Talking Book Clubs, outings and a monthly luncheon meeting with entertainment. 

Our Thoughts and Prayers for the Christian Family

Dear St Luke members and friends,

It is with great sadness that I share the news of Laura Christian’s death this morning (June 18, 2015). I heard directly from Dan the following; "Laura was surrounded by her family, friends, love, laughter, prayers, tears and gratitude. She is free from pain and was sleeping peacefully when she went to be with God.”

Please continue to hold Dan and his family in your heart, in the depths of prayer, that bonds us to the love and comfort that exceeds all understanding given to us in Christ Jesus.

Yours in Christ,


Donations may be made in the name of Laura Marquez Christian to:
