A Thank You Note from Bishop Larry Benfield


"To my friends at St. Luke's,

I truly appreciate the hospitality during my recent visit to the parish. The lunch you prepared was great, and it was a treat to have several confirmations.
I also appreciate very much the donation to my discretionary fund. I can assure you that the money will be used for much-needed assistance.

Faithfully yours,
+Larry"

Summer Bible study of women of the Bible
 
  Spend the summer with us studying what women first said in the Bible, their historical background, and the significance of their words starting with the Genesis stories. You will be surprised who speaks the most. We are using the book, Bible Women, written by an Episcopal priest, Lindsay Freeman. Step into God's sacred circle of grandmothers, warriors, and prophets, and you will not come out the same. For questions email Chris Schaefer glschaefer@sbcglobal.net  or Joanna Seibert joannaseibert@me.com. Men as well as women of the church are welcome. Note meeting place change to Parish Hall.
