St. Luke's Summer Monster Food Drive and Can Sculpture Contest

This summer in May and June bring cans and boxes of food for Food Pantries in North Little Rock and St. Francis House and put in the green bucket in the narthex. At our Vacation Bible School closing on July 1 at St. Luke's there will be a can sculpture contest for our youth making sculptures from the can and box goods. Bring food every week and sign up with Joanna joannaseibert@me.com to be a participant or judge in the can sculpture contest. We will also need help being with the children on July 1 as they make their sculptures as well as help delivering the food to the pantries. Again, contact Joanna if you can help with this fun summer project.

Pocket Change for Building and Grounds Projects

Do you have change in your pockets or change purse?  Do you think it is only a small amount and doesn't matter?  Just image, if everyone donates and combines this pocket change, the total will continue to grow and needed projects will be funded and completed.  A designated glass water bottle will be placed in the Narthex, remember, no amount of change is too small. Thank you from the Building and Grounds Committee.
