New This Week
Deck the Nave
St. Luke’s needs your help after the 9:30 a.m. service on December 19! 
Many hands make light work.  Immediately after worship, please stay and lend a hand as we decorate the nave for Christmas.

Thank You for Sharing Your Christmas

Welcome Interim Rector
We announced via email on Saturday 12/11/21 and in worship on Sunday 12/12/21 that the Vestry has called the Rev. Rhonda Lee as our Interim Rector effective January 1, 2022.  She will lead our worship on Sunday, January 2nd (which is the 2nd Sunday of Christmas).  Please join us in person or online that day to welcome Rhonda Lee as our Interim Rector and to celebrate a New Year together at St. Luke’s.  (Rhonda’s greeting letter is posted on our Facebook page if you missed the email.)
Announcements
We Need a Home for Afghan refugees.
As you may know, St. Luke’s, St. Titus, and St. Joseph’s are together sponsoring an Afghan refugee family. We need a two- or preferably 3-bedroom home or apartment to rent. We hope to stay in the range of $1500 per month and find a place that is close to public transportation. If you know of such a place or can recommend people who can help us, please call Bill Gutknecht.

CONTACT UPDATES
Up-to date contact information can be found online at ACS, or the ChurchLife App for your phone or tablet.  Contact Kathy if you have any problems logging onto ACS.  You can also ask Kathy to send you a paper directory if needed.
