Next Wednesday, November 22, at 7 PM, you are invited to gather for worship and then stay for dessert. It’s a wonderful tradition here at St. Luke’s as well as many other congregations. You’re invited to bring a dessert to share with our fellow members following worship, but also bring a bag for our neighbors.
VEAP is our local community food shelf and resource center.
VEAP Mission: Together we create pathways to stronger, more hopeful communities through access to healthy food, housing stability, and supportive services.
and Vision: A thriving community where all are free to pursue their dreams!
St. Luke’s has a VEAP Barrel by our front entrance. Every Sunday there are items put in it by a few faithful members. Two times a year we seek to have the barrel overflowing with food and household products – On Thanksgiving Eve and March Minnesota Food Share Month.
Prayerfully consider bringing some of the following items of their most needed items:

If you cannot join us for Thanksgiving Eve, remember we collect items every week. The Sunday following is Christ the King, November 26. Let us remember Jesus parable of the King…
“The king will say to those at his right hand, “Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.” Then the righteous will answer him, “Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” – Matthew 25:34-40
