|JUNE HYMN SING|
One and all are invited to our June Hymn Sing. Sing a lot, sing a little, or just listen in. Wednesday, June 30th from 7:00-8:15. Please arrive between 6:45-7:00 to get checked in and settled. More information and sign up here.
|BELATED DEACON DAN SENDING|
Deacon Dan Laird retired from St. Luke’s about a year ago. At that time, we held a virtual Coffee Hour in his honor, but we were not able to give him a sending pray.
A year later, Dan will join us for our 9:30 in person service on June 6th for his belated sending prayer.
You can sign up for June in-person worship here. Each month we plan to experiment with different practices as we move towards more full re-gathering. For June we will offer in-person services on June 6 and 20. We will not sing in June worship services as we get used to being indoors or being unmasked outdoors. Both services will include a sermon at the end of the service.
Our 8:30 service will be outdoors behind the Gray Building with chairs provided. Masks will be optional for those who have been vaccinated (required for those who aren’t vaccinate).
Our 9:30 service will be indoors, Masks Required, in our main sanctuary, with socially distanced pods of chairs. Please make sure to keep socially distanced while entering and exiting.
As is our new norm, please stay at home if you are sick, have any symptoms, or may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
HELP NEEDED JUNE 20
Hospitality Coordinator Carol Joyner will be on vacation June 20th. We are in need of 1-3 people to help with set-up and take-down for our 8:30 service that day. If you are able and willing, please contact Helen by June 14.
EL BUEN PASTOR FOOD DISTRIBUTION TOMORROW

|How Can I Help?|
|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.
|DISCERNING VISION TEAM MEETING|
The St. Luke’s Discerning Vision Team met for the first time last week. We spent the first half of the meeting getting to know one another. We then tried a guided imagery prayer experience where we encountered our “future self” at the St. Luke’s of the future. We shared what we noticed with one another, and we hold onto that vision of what St. Luke’s could become. Helen then shared a list of different ways to pray and to read the Bible, and each participant committed to deeper prayer and/or Bible study between now and early 2022.
Later this month, we hope to have our first Listening Session to hear more about what St. Luke’s was like between 1956-1974. Stay tuned for more info!
