All Saints Sunday

November 1st is All Saints Sunday. You can submit your names to be included on the prayer list by filling out an insert included in the church bulletin or by clicking on the link HERE and sending the email to the church office. 

This Sunday evening at 6:30pm St. Luke's will offer Choral Evensong for All Saints'.  Evening Prayer, and in particularly Evening Prayer with choir ("Evensong") is one of the hallmark liturgies of the Anglican Tradition.  Not only is Evensong a celebration of the Communion of Saints, it is also an exercise of our religious heritage as members of the Anglican Communion.  Music for this year's Choral Evensong for All Saints includes works by Victoria, Peeters, Tallis, and Daley.  Preces and Responses by Ian Quinn, Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in C, C.V. Stanford.
BLISS Is Chris

On October 29, Trinity Cathedral is hosting an event, BLISS. It is a silent/live auction based on Joseph Campbell's instruction to follow or bliss. Thus, the items donated are the bliss gifts of Trinity's parishioners of the activities, places, talents that touch their
bliss. This event is in honor of Trinity's Interim Dean and his wife, Chris and Julie Keller.
All proceeds will go to the Julie and Chris Keller Fund at Trinity Cathedral. BLISS will begin at 6:30pm. All food and drink provided. Tickets are $35, and may be purchased online at www.trinitylittlerock.org/events/bliss. Please come join us! Thank you!

St. Luke's is taking a trip to England in June 2016 and we hope you come! Be watching for more information and specific dates. If you are interested, please contact the church office.

On Friday, October 30, the St. Luke's Festival of the Senses will host the popular NPR broadcast Tales From the South.  Food trucks will be at St. Luke's to provide dinner and drinks from 5pm, and the show starts at 7pm -- "What happens in church..." Join us for some good eatin' and good old fashioned Southern storytellin' as we gather to hear tales that sound strikingly familiar: some sad, some happy, some uplifting, and some just plain ol' whack-a-doodle! Come hear our own John Bangert relive some stories from St. Luke's past, and hear Jason Pennington tell some of his own anecdotes. 

Tickets must be purchased online in advance.  Seating is plentiful, but ultimately limited, so be sure to purchase your tickets soon!  Tickets are available at the
 link:  www.tales103015.eventbrite.com.

The stewardship campaign this year will include the opportunity for you to become more acquainted with the budget of the church and its needs. We have scheduled some cottage meetings in the next few weeks. These are meetings for only a few people (8 to 10) at a parishioner's house. They will be short sessions to inform you about the programs, budget process, and needs of the church. We encourage you to attend one of the meetings. They are open to all members and might be especially beneficial to newer members.  If you have an interest in attending one of the meetings please contact the church office. STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE

Outreach Opportunities 

Donations for Homeless Shelter: We will continue to collect toiletries (e.g., toothpaste, shampoo, soap, hand cream, hand sanitizer, etc.) for area homeless shelters.  A small BLUE top bin is available in the narthex for you to bring things you would like to donate to help our area homeless shelters with.  For more information on this project, contact Tommie Williams. 

ST. FRANCIS HOUSE is seeking help from area churches to provide children (ages infant to age 12) with Christmas presents of either toys or clothing or both.  Perhaps you or your family might want to help one child or several children, or perhaps your organization might be interested in helping with a gift for one child or gifts for several children.  Presents may be wrapped or unwrapped, but if they are wrapped, please place a tag on the outside of the gift stating the age of the child for the gift.  At this time, we are just trying to find out if any of you are interested in helping with this so that we can respond to St. Francis House with the number of children that St. Luke's parishioners are willing to help.  If enough folks are interested in helping with this, we will provide you with the location and date for drop off of the toys and clothing in the future.  If you are interested in helping with this or want additional information, please contact Jeannie Fry or Deacon Joanna by no later than Sunday, November 8th.
