Parish Life Ministries at St. Luke’s
Singles on the Go
St. Luke's Singles on the Go is a fun, informal group for those 55 and over. We meet every Tuesday morning at 9:30 at the coffee shop in Sprouts Market (Lemay and Drake) and once a month (usually the third Tuesday) we go out to dinner at a local restaurant at 5:30 pm. Please RSVP to Gail McKenzie. Come join us - we always have a very good time!
St. Luke's seasonal ministry of kickball is about to begin its third year of activity. Every summer, a group of us form a summer kickball team (known as "Saved by the Ball") to play in a local league for 6-8 weeks. This ministry focuses on fellowship and friendship building, as well as weekly BBQ after each game. This is a casual, non-competitive and inter-generational team. If you are interested in being on the team, coming to games to cheer us on, or want to sponsor a player, contact Cai Seymour. He is the captain for the Summer 2019 team.
There are so many things to take care of when someone dies that we have formed a Funeral Guild here at St. Luke’s to take one item off of your list. We are a hospitality team prepared to plan and provide a reception at the church following the service so you can spend time sharing stories and fond memories with friends and family. We are looking for volunteers to donate food on short notice and/or help with setup, serving and cleanup. If you want to be part of this ministry, please contact the Funeral Guild coordinator, Debbie Vessey (970-493-8351).
Pastoral Care Meal Providers
The arrival of a new baby. Loss of a loved one. Financial difficulty. Illness. Hospitalization. These are just a few of the situations that bring out a family’s need for assistance with meal preparation. In these times, we as friends, neighbors, and community members are given the holy opportunity to extend a hand in loving assistance. When we plan or participate in a meal provider program, we can help alleviate the worry about cost, time, and energy of meal preparation for those in need. If you are interested in being on the meal provider list, please contact Cindy Hohl 970-699-0069.
Christmas Cookie Ministry
Once a year we remember all the members and friends of St. Luke’s who are in nursing homes, assisted living, rehabilitation centers or home-based locations by delivering Christmas Cookies to them. Names are placed on the Christmas Cookie Tree in the Narthex and parishioners select who they will take cookies to, prepare them and deliver them. The best part, in addition to the cookies, is the visiting that takes place, the making connections and sharing stories. This year 28 individuals/couples receive a Christmas Cookie visit. Thank you to all who gave of your time and love. Contact: Cindy Hohl firstname.lastname@example.org
The St. Luke’s Quilt Group makes a baby or lap size quilt for every person who is baptized at St. Luke’s. We meet once a month. We gave out 4 baptism quilts in 2018 and we donated 4 quilts to the silent auction for the organ fundraiser. New quilters are always welcome, and we will help those wishing to learn. Contact: Tammie Gregori, 223-2113. .
