Here at St. Luke’s we have decided to make each August “Sac Pac Month” and focus our outreach efforts toward supporting this wonderful program of The Caring Place. $5 feeds a child for a week; $20 feeds a child for a month. Last August we raised over $5,400, which would meet the needs of a classroom of 35 children for the school year. Thanks to your giving, 35 children did not go hungry on weekends in Bradley County last year. If you would like to contribute to the Sac Pac ministry, make your check payable to St. Luke’s noting ‘Sac Pac’ on the memo line, and place in the offering plate or bring it by the church office during the week.

Into Great Silence (2005)
Koinonia will be screening the documentary film Into Great Silence. The filmmaker follows a group of Carthusian monks at the Grande Chartreuse in the French Alps, exploring their silent religious life together over the course of a year. The film will be followed by a time of reflection, discussion, and prayer.
Bring snack to share. We will provide drinks and popcorn.
