The Ceruti String Quartet (the faculty string quartet of the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music at the University of Memphis and the October 2017 resident chamber ensemble of IRIS Orchestra) will be presenting a benefit concert in the sanctuary of St. Luke Lutheran Church on Saturday, November 11 at 3pm in the St. Luke Sanctuary.
The program will be a continuation of the group's journey through all of the Beethoven String Quartets and will be the 3rd in the series performed at St. Luke. This concert will feature his upbeat and folk music inspired Op. 59 No. 1 "Razumovsky," as well as the Op. 132 featuring the sublime "Heiliger Dankgesang." The concert is free, but we ask that you please bring canned goods or a love donation to benefit the food pantry. Please join us for an afternoon of fun & fellowship!

Trunk-or-Treat is a fun, safe, and friendly environment where kids can walk around the church parking lot and trick or treat as they go from trunk to trunk. We will have games, food, music, prizes, and of course lots and lots of CANDY!
The games and activities will begin at 4 pm while the adults decorate their cars. Trick or treating will begin at 4:30 (Don't forget to bring your candy to hand out!) and food will be served afterward. All games, food, and activities will be outside so please dress appropriately for the weather.
Trunk-R-Treat is for all ages so bring the whole family and don't forget to invite your friends and neighbors. We can't wait to see all of your amazing costumes!
Please consider bringing any of the following items to St. Luke this Sunday, Oct. 8. Tim, Marta & Gabi Flohr will take them to the GPAC to be flown to Puerto Rico early next week.
Thank you for your generosity!
LifeBlood will be at St. Luke on Sunday, Oct. 1 from 9am - 1pm in the CFC.
As the service schedule has changed, please note the slightly later start time.
Lifeblood is the Memphis region's only non-profit volunteer blood center, dedicated to meeting the needs of patients, healthcare facilities, medical professionals and the community at large. Every year Lifeblood supplies more than 100,000 units of blood and blood products for local patient transfusion.
Because Memphis is the eighth largest medical center in the United States and hosts the second busiest trauma center in the nation, the need for blood is constant. Unfortunately, over one-third of our blood supply is currently being imported from other volunteer blood centers throughout the country.
The donation process only takes about 1 hour and takes place entirely at St. Luke. Each donation of whole blood can help as many as 3 recipients - all of them our neighbors.
Please sign up prior to Oct. 1 using the Lifeblood portal at clublifeblood.org. You can also complete your health questionnaire prior to Oct. 1 using the portal; this will help ensure fast and efficient donations.
Please contact Jon Klein, the St. Luke Lifeblood Coordinator, with any questions. Thanks in advance!
