In John 3:16 we hear “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life”. The remarkable love God has for us is something we should share every day with family, friends and even those with whom you disagree.

The youth again have shown us this love for the less fortunate by their efforts in coordinating the “Diaper Bowl”. As you have already heard over 1800 diapers were made available to the Sunnyvale Community Services. Because of their efforts, Witness Team’s financial support each month, and the many volunteers from the congregation St. Luke is being honored on April 4th at a “Major Donor-Volunteer Celebration” given by Community Services.

I have to make a correction from my statement last month in which I stated that Joyce Masterson was working with the gardener to see what it would cost to set up a drip system for the Memorial Garden. It should have stated the Meditation Garden. This project has been tabled for the time being.

The architect, Denise, Maggie, Mark, PB and Amy met to discuss ways to improve the bathrooms in Kurtz Hall which is sorely needed. This is just in the beginning stages so we will keep you advised as the program develops.

Kutz Hall is still in the need of painting. Let’s hope for warm weather the next work day so we can accomplish this task.

Two additional “Handicap” parking spots have been made available next to Kurtz Hall from a request by members of the congregation. We now have five in this parking lot. Hopefully you have given prayerful thought to joining one of the small groups in “The 40 Days of Prayer”.

This is an opportunity to strengthen your prayer life and possibly make new friends. The program is being offered at many different times so it may be possible

to find one that meets your schedule. May the Lord continue to bless you and St. Luke.
