Rally Day and God’s Work, Our Hands

Join us for the kickoff for the new Sunday School year on Sunday, September 9! We will be gathering after worship to get an overview about our upcoming Sunday School Curriculum.

Following the Sunday School introduction, members will be participating in service projects for the 2018 God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday. We will be collecting items for the Culpeper Food Closet and delivering gift baskets to our shut-in members. Please join us for this special day of Christian Education and service!

Warming Shelter Volunteers

St. Luke Members pitched in for a week for the Emergency Homeless Shelter in Culpeper.  They provided overnight chaperones, cooked dinner, set out breakfast, and even stayed longer to keep the shelter all day during the storm!

The Warming Shelter is organized by the Culpeper Co. Ministerial Association.  So far they have served 80 individuals in our community this year for at least one night of accommodation.  They are operated entirely by volunteers, donations, and the generosity of those in our community.

Warming Shelter at St Luke

The Warming Shelter at St Luke Lutheran Church has returned to their regular schedule from 5:30 pm until 7 am.  This is a nightly emergency shelter organized by the Culpeper County Ministerial Association.  The church is located at 1200 Old Rixeyville Road- please come to the rear door labeled “Social Hall”.  

There is a pickup at the bus station behind St Stephen Episcopal Church at 5pm each day. For questions please call the church at (540) 812-4950 or 540 825 8358 or visit http://www.stlukesculpeper.org

Pets, alcohol, weapons and any other illegal substances are not allowed in the shelter.  Dinner is provided at 6:30pm and breakfast is provided at 6:30am.  The shelter is entirely staffed and funded by volunteers from the churches of Culpeper.  Thanks be to God!

Breakfast for the Homeless in DC

This past weekend 17 St. Lukers traveled to Washington DC to serve breakfast to those in need.  We served 138 meals, plus seconds!  This project is organized by Community Family Life Services and is held at First Trinity Lutheran Church in DC.

Pastor Kate Costa “bailed out”

Pastor Kate was “bailed out” by generous members of St Luke this afternoon for $1700!  These funds go to the Omega Partnership, a day shelter and mentoring program in Culpeper.  You can still contribute to our goal of reaching $2000 by going to www.omegapartnership.org or giving on Sunday to Pr. Kate.  Every dollar you give will be matched by an anonymous donor from our congregation.

St Luke’s Families help at CFLC

13 members of St Luke went to Caroline Furnace Lutheran Camp this past weekend to lend a hand!  They moved rocks, cleared out streambeds, took down an old bridge and rebuilt a new one.

Here they are, busy ‘serving God and loving all people’!

Give more this year…

This year, instead of one more trip to the mall, take a trip to the ELCA’s global barnyard.  They offer “good gifts”- donations for others that benefit those most in need all over the world.  They also have beautiful cards so that you can honor a loved one with a gift that they will treasure forever.
