THE ST. LUKE SERVICE MINISTRY needs your help, helping others. “NEEDED” The Sojourner Truth Ministry is in need of coffee supplies (coffee, sugar, powdered creamer, coffee urns) to help supply the need to the local community meetings, that are hosted on a regular basis at Sojourner. The St. Luke Service Ministry will put out a coffee pot and coffee cup during our coffee hours. Just put in loose change (or bills). The money will be collected and delivered to Sojourner to buy these supplies. Buy one: for Sojourner Truth! Get one Free: for yourself at coffee hour! Help them to help others!

WILLIAMSPORT CHAMBER CHOIR & ORCHESTRA present Letters Home a Tribute to Veterans, today at 4:00PM at St. Luke Church.

HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS — During Coffee Hour on 11/17, you are invited to stop by the carpeted area of Bell Hall to offer a written word of hope for the coming Christmas season. The St. Luke Ministry for Outreach is joining in with Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services’ outreach to detained migrant families via Christmas cards. All materials as well as brief sample messages in English and Spanish will be provided. Consider taking a moment to write out a card or two (or ten!).

MARK YOUR CALENDAR A special congregational meeting has been scheduled for Sunday, November 24, 2019, after the 10:30AM Worship service. The sole purpose of this meeting is to discuss and vote on the sale of a small portion of land, 4,372 square feet, belonging to St. Luke Church. This land is located across Freedom Road. The sale of this small parcel of land will not include the ancillary parking area.

BREAKFAST AND BIBLE We meet this month at Susan Horn’s home on Friday, November 15, 9:30AM. Enjoy a delicious breakfast followed by the November Bible study in the Gather magazine. You may pick up a copy outside the church office, or in the west hall. If you can’t make breakfast, you are most welcome to join us at 11:00AM for the study. All women are invited as we listen to God’s word and each others’ stories as they relate to the lesson.

LUNCH WITH PASTOR This November we will be enjoying lunch at one of our favorite restaurants in Williamsport, Le Jeune Chef, 1 College Ave., Williamsport. The date is Wednesday, November 20, at 12:00 noon. Come and enjoy fellowship with Pastor Jeff and fellow congregants. No reservations required.

THE SHAWL MINISTRY meeting date has changed to Tuesday, November 19th from 9:00AM-12noon. All are welcome! No Dec. meeting.

CAN YOU HELP? One of the easiest and most satisfying roles to fill in the life of St. Luke Church is to serve as a flower deliverer. After the 10:30AM service, the altar flowers are delivered, along with a copy of the bulletin and a special greeting card, to members who are shut-ins, are in the hospital or rehab, in mourning over the loss of a loved one, or maybe celebrating a milestone birthday. If you can help with this vital ministry, please let the office know or contact Nancy McCarty at<> . Please put Flower Delivery in the subject line and thanks for considering helping with this vital ministry.
