Hello from your Council President

Many people participated during the Christmas season with music, decorating, planning or attendance. The inspiring Advent messages paved the way for the joyful Christmas Eve services. Pastor Bob and Pastor Gary, we appreciate your continual devotion and dedication in doing the Lord’s work. Our thanks to everyone who joined in celebrating the birth of the Christ child.

What a pleasure it has been to have Erin Cassidy at our preschool for seven and a half years. Erin was a teacher for several years before becoming the ACP Director and she has actively encouraged preschool parents to join our St. Luke family. We will certainly miss Erin when she and her family move to Reno where she will be the director of another Christian preschool. Erin, we wish you and your family God’s blessings.

Sue Hutchins and the Stewardship Team will present the proposed 2019 budget to the Council at their January meeting. The recommended budget will then be presented to the congregation for approval at the Congregational Meeting on January 27. The Vision Committee will also give an update from their recent survey. You are all part of this process so please plan to attend this important meeting.

Feel free to contact me or any Council member with any suggestions or questions you may have, and please continue to keep the work

Mary Hendrickson
St. Luke Council President
