SAINT LUKE’S RECTOR SEARCH
Saint Luke’s is deeply immersed in the exciting process of finding our next Rector. We have completed the Discernment phase, when the Parish considered who we are and what God calls us to become. Now it is time for Recruitment! The Transition page on our website shares the process for application along with information about our Saint Luke’s community. Please take a look and consider if this is where you might be called to lead, grow and serve.
Lisa Baird and Craig Jones are the Co-Chairs of the Recruitment Committee. They can be contacted with any questions or leads on potential candidates. Email Lisa and Craig at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall happenings at Saint Luke’s
Sunday, November 17th
Pathways at 9AM
Last year, The Vestry boldly approved the borrowing of The Saint John’s Bible – Gospel and Acts. It has been exactly one year since the enormous red book arrived at Saint Luke’s. The mission of the Bible is “to ignite the spiritual imagination of people around the world of all faith journeys.” Have you personally had a chance to experience the Bible and feel some of its spark? It’s not too late.
Join us at Pathways on 11/17 as the lead docents discuss the year’s highlights and dare to think about the future.

Christmas Pageant Sign Ups
The annual Christmas Pageant on December 22nd tells the Christmas story with the full complement of angels, shepherds, and sheep. We are looking for children actors and young adults to help supervise this special production! All parts will be selected using a lottery system. You may complete a form following the 10:00 AM service on 11/17. Just stop by the Children’s Ministries board located in the Cloisters entrance of the Parish Hall building (a.k.a. Education Building).
Sunday, November 24th
On this Sunday the youth of our congregation will lead us in all aspects of worship. Youth Sunday is
important because it showcases the youth of the parish in leadership roles and it gives youth a unique opportunity to experience the liturgy they have grown up with in a new light.
Our Stewardship Campaign is Underway!
During this Annual Pledge Appeal we are asking for your financial commitment for 2020. The Church budget operates on the calendar year and we need your contribution so that we can plan for the next year. Please take the time to make a thoughtful, prayerful decision to support Saint Luke’s. Gratitude is at the heart of the stewardship mission, and the recognition of our many blessings is the foundation of the 2020 Stewardship Campaign.
Thank you for all you give.
