This Week At St. Luke’s

Family Promise Arrives — June 18-25

The second quarter of the year is here and our next dates to host are set. Families will be here at St. Luke’s June 18-25. There are currently three families in the program, a total of four adults and three children (aged 18 months, 2, and 9). Sign up for volunteers will continue for the next three weeks. Thanks to everyone who has already volunteered to serve! There will be many opportunities to host — by preparing meals, visiting with families in the evenings, or staying overnight. Stop by Metcalf Hall after the 10:30 service to choose your slot. If you have questions, or would like to learn more about the program, or want to sign up early, please contact Jen Peterson at jenrpet1971@gmail.com or 918-397-7779.

Children’s Sunday School Classes Resume in Mid-August

Children Sunday School will not meet during the summer months. We will resume our regular 9:15am Sunday School Classes when area schools begin again in mid-August. Please watch future issues of The Steeple newsletter and the Sunday Bulletins for more details. In the meantime, have a safe & happy summer! We hope to see you on Sundays at the Eucharist and Children’s Chapel (during the 10:30 am Eucharist), and don’t forget VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is July 10-14!

Clergy Forum – Now in Session

Sundays, 9:15 am in Metcalf Hall. Formerly known as the Rector’s Forum, the class between the two Sunday services will be led by the Deacons for the next few months. We will be discussing the National Church for the next three weeks (May 21, 28, June 4). Please come at 9:15 and enjoy a lively discussion.


Site Visit to Top Rector Candidates

Another important step is now underway in the search for our new rector.  Members of the Search Committee are about to begin making site visits to the churches of the top rector candidates. Read about the latest developments at Search Committee Update.
