Highlights of current and past St. Luke activities
Join us on October 27th for our annual Trunk-R-Treat celebration. Trunk-R-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!
Each year we celebrate the many ministries at St Luke with our own version of the Mid-South Fair! The rides will be in our imagination and if someone wants to set up Dunking for Apples please do! Each of our ministries will have a display in the narthex on Sunday October 20 to explain what their ministry is and invite new members to join. Please plan to attend!
Sign up to build Sept. 28 and Oct. 19, 7:30am-1pm (see the link in This Week). The house location is Cedar Heights Build Site, 1919 Carver Avenue, Memphis, TN 38114.

The Thursday Women's Bible Study group will start back up September 12th studying the book,
