Outreach of the Month Our March Outreach of the Month is Habitat for Humanity of Hamilton County. St. Luke’s has made a commitment to take on the expense of a home for the Davis family. You still have a chance to leave your mark on their home. We have the OSB boards in the West Passage that will be used to build their home -- leave your handprint or a written message. You may also make a donation and place it in the offering (payable to St. Luke’s with “Habitat” on the memo line) or at www.stlukesumc.com.

NEWS YOU CAN USE Easter Hospitality Easter is our highest attended worship service of the year, and as we learned at our recent Hospitality Workshop, every one of us is an ambassador for our church. Help us make our many guests feel welcome by taking some extra hospitality steps. 1) Make sure there are plenty of parking spaces available by taking the free shuttle from Springmill Elementary (8250 Springmill Rd.). Park your car at the school and get dropped off/picked up at the main doors to the church. Shuttle runs 7AM-1PM. 2) When finding seats in the Sanctuary, please make friends with the person sitting in the pew with you by decreasing your personal space and skootching a tad closer so that we can accommodate as many people as

comfortably (and safely) possible in the Sanctuary. 3) Please do not save seats for others who have not yet arrived, or set up any folding chairs on your own. Our ushers can assist you with any seating issues. 4) Know that you may also participate in the service in Robertson Chapel at 9:30 and 11:00. It will be linked via video to the Sanctuary, there will be live music, and clergy will be present. Thank you in advance for making Easter a joyful day for all who worship with us.

Holy Week Breakfast Devotions Start your day with breakfast and a brief devotion March 2529, 7:30-8:15AM in Fellowship Hall. Join Dr. Kent Millard (Mon.), Rev. David Williamson (Tues.), Dr. Marion Miller (Wed.), Dr. Carver McGriff (Thurs.) and Bishop Richard Wilke (Fri.) for a light breakfast and devotional. Suggested donation of $5/morning. Make reservations at www.stlukesumc.com or by calling the church, 846-3404.

A Taste of Passover Our Seder observance will highlight the significance of the holiday while sampling the ethnic meal. Enjoy festive programming and learn about when God “passed over” the homes of the Israelites. Tuesday, March 26, 6PM in Fellowship Hall. No charge; a freewill offering will be received. Register at www.stlukesumc.com.
