New This Week
FOOD DISTRIBUTION
The next El Buen Pastor Food Distribution is the Saturday, April 3rd from 7:30-1:00 at 1852 Liberty St.  Bring your mask, light work gloves, folding knife or box cutter if you have one, and a hat or hair covering.  Anyone 16 or older is welcome to join at any point in the morning.

STAFF TIME OFF
Whew!  St. Luke’s hard-working staff will be taking off the week after Easter.  Please expect staff to return phone calls and e-mails on April 12 and 13.  
If you have a pastoral need next week, please contact Jim Craven or Susan Bennett.  For other emergencies, contact Senior Warden Eileen Morgan.  

IN PERSON EASTER WORSHIP UPDATES
For our Easter Morning worship, St. Luke’s will set up chairs on the Great Lawn.  You will not need to bring a lawn chair.  

And Big News: We will try a little bit of congregational singing on Easter!  Pods will be spaced 10 feet apart, and we’ll always have our masks on.  We will sing 2 verses of a hymn early in our service and again at the end. 
 
If you would like to attend 6:30am in-person Easter worship, sign up here. Later time slots are all full.

How Can I Help?
JOIN A BOARD
At last week’s Coffee Hour, we talked about how using your voice on city and county boards can greatly impact our neighbors for good.  To volunteer for a city board, find out more here.  To volunteer for a county board, find out more here.  To find out more about what it’s like being on one of these boards, talk to Bobbie Hendrix.

BECOME A WORSHIP LEADER
St. Luke’s has a small and faithful group of people helping to lead our online worship, and we’re looking to expand this group.  If you are able to use Zoom, can meet on Thursday afternoons, and would be willing to be a worship reader, please contact Helen.
How about music?  Even if you haven’t been in our choir before, we would love to have you as part of our virtual choir or to offer a solo or instrumental piece.  These you record at home on your own time.  If you’re willing and able, please contact Kaye.  

EL BUEN PASTOR FOOD DISTRIBUTION
St. Luke’s members and friends (16 years and older) are encouraged to help with the monthly food distribution out of El Buen Pastor.  Distributions are normally from 7:30-12:30 (come all or just part of the time) on the 1st Saturday of the month.  For more info, please contact Peter Jacobi who is a regular St. Luke’s participant. 

LASAGNA LOVE
If you are able to make a casserole for a local household that could use some help, or if you would be blessed by having a casserole made for you, check out Lasagna Love.  Click here to find out more.

KEEP CLERGY IN THE LOOP
Please make sure to keep the clergy in the loop if there are any needs or concerns you have or you know about.  You can e-mail Helen at any time.  

REMEMBER, Your clergy will not send you e-mail or texts messages asking for gift cards or financial help.
