CHRISTMAS-AT-SEA It is once again time to think about filling satchels for the Seafarer’s for Christmas 2020. At this time, we are asking you to purchase (at a sale price we hope) sweat shirts, t-shirts, and socks. Sizes needed are: sweat shirts–hooded or not–M, L or XL; t-shirts–M, L or XL; 3 pairs of socks–thermal or white gym; sweat shirts and t-shirts should be dark colors. They can be plain or have logos for sports teams, race car drivers or cartoons. NO Christmas or military. There is a display at the back of the nave where you can pick up a sheet of information and a Christmas card to sign. Please bring your items in over the next few Sundays and put them in the box under the table. If this is not a good time for you to shop, you can bring your items in to the office any time up to November 1, 2020. Thank You, Service Ministry

PROJECT LINUS SUSQUEHANNA VALLEY CHAPTER is a 100% volunteer nonprofit organization who provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need, though the gifts of bright, new, handmade washable blankets, quilts and afghans. In our area, these blankets are distributed to UMPC Williamsport, Muncy Valley, Jersey Shore and Lock Haven Hospitals. In addition, we deliver to Wise Options for Women, Family Promise, Warrior Run School District, Daniel’s closet, Social Services, police and fire departments. In 2018, 800 blankets were distributed in our area, in 2019 that number increased to over 900. The need continues to grow as the weather turns colder and children are forced to sleep in their coats because the family can’t afford heat. With the aid of volunteers, I am establishing a Williamsport Community Make a Blanket day here at St. Luke on May 2, 2020. The local chapter in Lewisburg hosts one every year, but many from our area can’t attend. This way our community can help. We are collecting materials for quilts, hand-tied fleece blankets, knitted and crocheted blankets. Items we need: NEW Cotton children’s fabric; Batting; New Flat bedsheets; Minimum 2 yards of fleece (this makes one blanket) Take an already assembled kit of yarn to make granny squares or knit a blanket. If you have any questions, please contact Dawn Nau 503-686-4968.

2020 OFFERING ENVELOPES will be available for pick up in the back of the nave. Please note, your envelope number may have changed, so please look for your name, not your envelope number. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
