Announcements

Baptism
Baptized into God's Family this Sunday afternoon is Elizabeth Jane Spear. Are you interested in being baptized or having a child baptized? If so, contact the office to set up a meeting with Pastor Luke. We will send you a one-page sheet to help with your planning.

Habitat Build
It is time to get out your gloves and favorite hammer and join us on Saturday mornings starting, October 16th at 7:30am at 697 W 19th St, Tempe (one block north of Broadway, midway between Mill & Priest). We also have a mid-week build on our house for those that are interested, and whose schedule allows. You can help at whatever skill level you have.  For additional information, please contact Steve Cramer or call the church office.

Save the Date ~ October 23rd/24th
We’re celebrating our 60th anniversary this year! Our kickoff celebration weekend will be October 23rd-24th. We’re planning a bunk bed build with Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a Produce on Wheels event, an Oktoberfest lunch, and an open house for our Family Promise remodel. This is the same weekend as the City of Mesa’s “Love Your City” weekend, and we’re partnering with the city’s volunteer coordinator to help with our projects! We’ll share more with you as the weekend approaches, but for now, please add both Saturday and Sunday morning to your calendar!

IMMERSE Campaign
Our 4-week IMMERSE Bible reading discussion groups start this weekend! Our entire church will be working through the books of Matthew, Mark, and John as well as the letters of Peter, James, and John. To join a discussion group, grab the flyer in the info center with the list of groups and their meeting locations.

Pastor’s Breakfast
Do you want to know more about our church? Starting Sunday, October 17th at 9:30am, we’ll have three breakfasts (and then a lunch on November 7th) for those who are interested in learning more about St. Luke’s. The three breakfasts and lunch will all be in our Oasis building, and each week we’ll talk about a different aspect of our church. They’re a great way to get to know Pastor Luke and make new friends. Our nursery and Sunday School classes are available for newborns and children. Please RSVP by emailing the church office  or sign up at the Information Center.

Reformation Service
Sunday, October 17th at 3:00pm, the Circuit Reformation Service –“From Wittenberg, to Tempe, to the World” – will be hosted by Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church (1337 W. 11th Street, Tempe). The Service will also serve as a 60th anniversary celebration for Beautiful Savior. Come celebrate over 60 years of ministry in the East Valley as we honor our Lutheran Heritage and Faith.

Handbells
Rehearsals are held on Monday @ 7:00pm. Now’s the time to give handbells a try! As we begin a new season, we would love to teach you the beginning skills of ringing! Last year we rang with four ringers.  We definitely would like to double that number! Please prayerfully consider joining us on Monday evenings.  It’s a wonderful small group that rings, prays, and supports each other in their weekly lives!  Email Kim Cramer for more information!

Stephen Ministry
Are You Going through a Difficult Time? A Stephen Minister can help. Stephen Ministers are members of St. Luke’s who receive special training to provide one-to-one Christian Care. They will listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support to people going through a crisis or difficult time.  To learn how you can receive a Stephen Minster’s confidential care, or how to become a Stephen Minister, please email Paul Hoffmann or call the church office.

International Mission Opportunities
If you are interested in opportunities of sharing God's amazing love with an international reach, there are two organizations that need your help: ASU's Campus Mission Coalition (Lutheran Outreach to foreign students) and Lutheran Social Services of the Southwest Refugee Resettlement Program. If you (or maybe your small group) would like more info on volunteering to prepare meals (recipes provide), become a “Friendship Family”, be a co-sponsor, mentor, or “First Friend”, please contact Pastor Luke  or MJ Cornelius.
 
St. Luke’s App
We created our app to create one simple place to get all of the information and resources you need at St. Luke’s. In our app you can watch our worship services, check-in to worship, see the bulletin, submit a prayer request, donate, read the Bible, sign up to volunteer, and subscribe to our Podcast. To download the app, go to www.stlukemesa.com/app.

Hearing-Assistance System
We have a new hearing-assistance system that works with an app or a belt pack to aid people in hearing our services. Ask about it in the sound booth.

Altar Flowers
Today's bouquet has been placed in the Worship Center to the glory of God by Mo Scheer in memory of her mother, Wilma.  Celebrating a special occasion? Honoring a loved one? Say it with flowers. Sign up to provide flowers for the altar.  Please email or call the church office (480.969.4414) with the name and occasion. Cost $30.
