St. Luke Vacation Bible School this summer June 4-8
Come join us for St. Luke Vacation Bible School this summer June 4 through June 8th 9am-12pm! You’ll join Daniel, who is torn from his home and forced into the king’s service, on a faith-filled adventure. You’ll explore exotic sights and smells in a Babylonian bazaar! Through this exciting VBS, you’ll find that you’re not much different from Daniel and his friends, who kept their faith in a faithless culture.

Religious Education Enrollment
Registration is now open for Religious Education classes at St. Luke’s. To enroll your students, click here: https://campscui.active.com/orgs/StLuketheEvangelist and complete the registration information. One of the questions you will see asks if you would be willing to be a catechist this year. Please prayerfully consider this opportunity – it takes many great volunteers to make our program a success, and we could definitely use your help at all grade levels, whether or not you have a student in RE. (As an added bonus, enrollment fees are waived for any children of our catechists). Contact Pete Haack at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, and look forward to a great year!
