Ushers, Oblation Bearers, Acolytes
We need to shore up our liturgy servant ranks! Adult ushers greet members
and visitors, gather the people’s offering and direct the flow
at Holy Communion. Oblation bearers (individual or families) bring the
gifts of bread and wine to the altar during the Offertory Procession.
And acolytes (generally 4th/5th grade and up) assist the priest at the
altar. Interested? Speak with Suzanne Schick, Devin Smith or Father
Celebrating Ministry with Children and
Not Your Grandma's Board Games
Third Friday of each month 7-10pm
people of the parish and their friends

If you have
a really awesome board game you'd like to share, bring it along.
If you don't, come anyway, you're sure to enjoy playing the
games others bring!
Every Child a Sacred Trust
At Saint Luke’s,
Every Child is a Sacred Trust. This is true whether we are thinking
of our babies and toddlers at home and here in the Nursery, the children
of our Sunday Church School or the members of our Teen/Young Adult Group.
Our care and joy also extends to others through the parish hosting the
Angels in the Garden Childcare Center, our welcoming area youth into
the Gingerbread Players, and other ongoing commitments to the wellbeing
of young people—such as support for Camp DeWolfe, volunteer efforts
with Saint Andrew’s Teen Shelter, and our relationship with Notre
Dame de l’Annonciation School in Haiti.
•Our Nursery for infants and toddlers on the lower
level of the parish hall is staffed during the 10:30 am liturgy.

Saint Luke's and Greater Forest Hills
activity of Saint Luke’s Church, in support of children and families
throughout the Forest Hills Community, is demonstrated through our partnership
with two important programs: Angels in the Gardens Childcare Center
and Thinking Cap After- School Program. The fall term for both programs
begins on Tuesday, September 6th. This is the sixth year of our relationship
with the childcare center and Year Two of our partnership with Thinking
Cap. Through these two programs, Saint Luke’s offers families
with pre-school and elementary school-aged children needed care and
support services. Please keep the children, teachers, staffs and families
in your prayers.
