First Sunday after Epiphany: the Baptism of our Lord
This week's theme:
Jesus, the sinless Son of God, expresses solidarity with sinful humanity by submitting to the baptism of John the Baptist. In anticipation of his Transfiguration and Resurrection, Jesus' baptism reveals his unique identity as God's beloved Son. Our baptisms reveal our true identity as God's adopted sons and daughters

SAVE YOUR STUFF!
With the increase in COVID cases in our community, the annual garage sale has been postponed until (hopefully) late spring or early summer. All proceeds from this sale come from your trash becoming someone else's treasure, so please hang on to potential donations for a few more months until we can hopefully have our sale! Please contact Sharon Edmon with any questions at 225-603-0010.
JOIN OUR NEW LIVESTREAM TEAM:
We are looking for a few tech-savvy folks who would like to join our LIVESTREAM TEAM to help us with our Facebook Live and Vimeo virtual services produced using the MEVO camera. Don't worry (it's really not that hard). And, you could learn some new skills (if you don't know how to do this already). The LIVESTREAM TEAM is going to be very important, especially for our Annual Meeting when we will have live, real-time voting. Does this sound like fun? We'd love your help.
If you are interested, please email Pam, our Communications Coordinator BY CLICKING HERE.
SOCIAL MEDIA AMBASSADORS:
St. Luke's does great things and we need to let the world know about us. Our new SOCIAL MEDIA AMBASSADOR program is designed to have parishioners high school aged and up to help us spread the word. This is a great opportunity to earn service hours if you need them for school. This is also a great way for anyone to share with the world all the great things happening at St. Luke's.
To sign up and learn more about the program, send an email to Pam BY CLICKING HERE.
