- Christmas Flower Fund
- Each year we decorate the sanctuary with poinsettias for Christmas Eve worship. Sponsoring a plant is a way to honor or remember a loved one. After expenses, funds received for Christmas Flowers this year will be donated to Lutheran World Relief to assist in recovery from Typhoon Hayian.
You can DOWNLOAD A FORM and return it,with your check attached, made payable to St. Luke and marked for the Christmas Flower Fund. All information must be in the church office by Monday, December 16, in order to be included in the bulletins for the Christmas Eve Services.
ALL of the funds we’ll send to LWR in this appeal go straight to relief. Unlike other organizations; the benevolence giving that we send to the ELCA covers LWR’s administrative expenses.
