Making Spirits Bright-
Advent is upon us and this year we’re going to throw a big Christmas Party at St. Luke’s on December 20th. We will serve a home-cooked meal and present each guest with a backpack filled with goodies. Here’s what we need from you: 120 wallets, 120 hats, 120 pairs of gloves, 120 pairs of socks, 120 angels (coin, pin, ornament). But most of all, money which can be used to purchase backpacks, subway cards and bus passes. We need all donations by December 16th please. Thank you!!
The Women’s Day and Night Circles will meet on Tuesday, December 2nd at 7:00 pm at Kitty Cannon’s, 160 Azalea Garden Way. Parking is limited so you may want to carpool from the church.
