Night Watch Sign Up ... at the Reception Desk for this annual prayer vigil that begins after the Maundy Thursday liturgy and ends at 11:30 a.m. on Good Friday. Keeping watch during this night is an ancient spiritual practice of the church in which teams of people come for one hour to pray and reflect on the events of Holy Week, in anticipation of Easter. We provide space in the Wilmer Chapel, as well as prayers and other material for reflection. We ask folks to come in teams of two and to sign up for the hours they will cover.

Tea and soft drinks will be provided. Loaves and Fishes is a social gathering for St Luke’s adults to be in community the last Sunday evening of each month.

Weekly Bible Study ... resumes Wednesday, April 11 at 11 a.m. in the Parkins Room. During Easter we’re studying the book of Ruth, an idealized story of what life would look like if God’s people treated each other with His loving-kindness—insiders and outsiders alike. A key understanding in Ruth is that God uses these acts of the loving-kindness of people to demonstrate that which God gives to all, whether they realize it or not. All are welcome!

Good Samaritan Care Team ... St. Luke’s has begun providing services through Good Samaritan, our new lay pastoral care ministry, for any parishioner in need. Good Samaritan is a lay-led pastoral care team of lay members providing short-term care to parishioners, such as errands to a doctor or grocery store, meal delivery, light housework, etc. This ministry’s leader, Jeanne Daniels, will work with The Rev. Horace Griffin, associate for Pastoral Care, and coordinate schedules with volunteers each week. Each Sunday there will be a Good Samaritan volunteer in the Reception Area documenting requests for pastoral care needs for that week. Requests can be made following the 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services in the Reception Area, by contacting Jeanne Daniels (firstname.lastname@example.org | 404-895-5959) or by filling out a Good Samaritan form on the St. Luke’s homepage (stlukesatlanta.org).
