8/30: Parish Picnic at 11:30am
Join us in Genesisland for our end-of-summer annual picnic, right after the 10:00 a.m. bilingual Eucharist! Enjoy tacos, drinks, shade, music, games, Karaoke Cakewalk (which must be seen to be believed), and a DUNK TANK to cool off your favorite clergy, staff, or vestry member. As in the past, we ask for a donation of $5 per individual and $10 per family. Send an email to Kevin kpi333@aol.com if you have questions and would like to volunteer to help that day. See you at the picnic!

9/1: Sermon Writing Class at 7pm
Have you ever wondered how sermons come into being? Gary is going to lead a “sermon writing workshop” (or perhaps better: Group Sermon Preparation) with a kick.  We aren’t going to theorize.  We aren’t going to practice.  We are going to do the first step in writing a sermon together, and the first step is always reading the lessons for the upcoming Sunday.  Essentially it’s Bible study with a kick. So on four Tuesday evenings in September and October: September 1 and 8, and September 29 and October 6 (that’s two sets of two weeks, and no one need attend more than one), Gary will welcome all-comers who would like to do what starts in Bible study and ends with discussing what message(s) we want to convey the following Sunday. Check the September People for the lesson plans. Join us in the Guild Room at 7pm!

9/2: Healthy Cooking Classes at 6pm
Join us for the 5 Wednesdays in September as Steve Trapasso and Erica Nieves from Seeds of Hope make their triumphant return to St. Luke’s Parish Hall Kitchen for another round of Healthy Cooking Classes! It’s a great way to develop healthy cooking skills, taste yummy food, and learn to invest in a healthier lifestyle. Come join in, it’s free!

9/8: Sermon Writing Class at 7pm
This is the second class of the series that Gary is going to lead. We aren’t going to theorize.  On four Tuesday evenings in September and October: September 1 and 8, and September 29 and October 6 (that’s two sets of two weeks, and no one need attend more than one), Gary will welcome all-comers who would like to do what starts in Bible study and ends with discussing what message(s) we want to convey the following Sunday. Check the September People for the lesson plans. Join us in the Guild Room at 7pm!

9/15: Oremus Prayer Workshop: Anglican Prayer Beads at 7pm
Please join us for a hands-on workshop to learn about the Anglican rosary – its history, symbolism and structure – and to make one of your own. We will close the class with a compline rosary using our newly blessed prayer beads. Easily mastered, the Anglican rosary offers virtually endless variation for our prayers. Email Arlene at arthompson222@gmail.com for further clarification before the class. Join us in the Guild Room at 7pm.
