For April 18th

Produce on Wheels (PowWow)
St. Luke will be hosting another PowWow (Produce on Wheels Without Waste) distribution event in our parking lot Saturday, May 1st from 7am –10am. Volunteers are needed and you can sign up on our Sign-Up Genius page or by emailing MJ Cornelius. Make sure and spread the word to your neighbors and friends that they can get 70 lbs. of fresh, nutritious produce for just $12!

APP Help
With all of the new technology at St. Luke’s, it can be overwhelming. We’d like to help! After the service, see Kathleen Hoffmann in the info center to get help downloading and using the St. Luke’s app.

Communion
As the weather heats up, we’ll be discontinuing drive-through communion. To receive communion privately post-service or midweek, sign-up in the lobby or e-mail office@stlukemesa.com.

Hospitality Volunteers Needed
We’d like to begin offering coffee & doughnuts in the courtyard again, but we need volunteers who can set up, serve, and clean up the refreshments. Setup starts at 7:15am, cleanup starts at 9:30am. Contact Kim Cramer for more information.

Parenting Our Parents (POP)
Are you dealing with a loved one that has health challenges?  How can I help my loved one deal with these concerns? Meet Jennifer Tonna, RN.  She will be educating us on how best to cope.  These issues are not easy. Everyone is welcome.  Next meeting is this Sunday, April 18th @ 11:45 in the Fellowship Room.

Drive-Through Communion
We are offering drive-through communion this Sunday, April 18th from 9:30am–10:00am in the back section of our parking lot.

Family Promise Volunteer Opportunity
Family Promise is looking for a volunteer to help at their St. Luke campus office. This is a flexible opportunity to embrace our great neighbor! If you would like some additional information, please reach out to MJ Cornelius. Also, if you think you may have a friend or family member that might be interested, please pass along this information/opportunity.

Changes for Back Indoors
We’re back indoors, but some things are still different. Yellow stickers are in the pews to aid in optional social distancing. Check-in can be done in the app or at the lobby iPad. Giving can be done online or with the offering boxes located near each set of sanctuary exit doors.  Other changes will be coming soon!

60th Anniversary
We’re celebrating our 60th anniversary this year!  As part of the celebration, we're developing long-term campus plans and have started a 60th Fund to take the initial steps of campus improvements.  Contact our facilities director, Kathleen Hoffmann, for more information.

CarePortal Delivery Team – Volunteers Needed!
We are in need of additional CarePortal delivery team members. CarePortal is a national organization that connects churches with families in crisis through State agencies. St. Luke partners with CarePortal and when we can meet the need of a local family, we send 2-3 volunteers to deliver the requested items. This can be a very meaningful opportunity to connect with a family who needs to feel the unconditional love of Jesus. Each delivery typically only takes a few minutes, but can mean the world to someone in need. We need both men and women on our teams and don’t often do more than a couple deliveries each month. Please reach out to MJ Cornelius for more information or to be added to the delivery team roster.

Altar Flowers
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 with the name and occasion. Cost $30.

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.

25th Anniversary
Hosanna Lutheran Church will celebrate the 25th anniversary of service by John Snyder as their Director of Music on May 2nd. Expressions of congratulations and appreciation to Mr. John Snyder can be mailed to Hosanna Lutheran Church, 9601 E. Brown Road, Mesa, AZ 85207.
