Pentecost Picnic May 19, 2013

The Youth Group, with the help of the parents, held a delicious picnic following the worship service. The pulled pork BBQ was donated by Shawn’s Smokehouse and the chicken was donated by The Culpeper Cattle Company. The free will offering collected will help pay expenses for Synod Assembly and other youth trips. Due to chilly weather we held our picnic in the Fellowship Hall and still were able to enjoy an indoor game of corn hole.

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.

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.

Happy 1st Anniversary of Ordination, Pastor Kate!

St. Luke had a surprise cake and coffee reception for Pastor Kate for her 1st Anniversary of Ordination this past Sunday. It was also a good opportunity to welcome Pastor Kate and Jon back from their Continuing Education trip to Israel.

We also got wonderful pictures of some of our St. Luke’s kids and youth! Check out that joy!
