Saturday, June 3
Ever notice that the chairs in the Great Room are looking a little rough around the edges? We’re working in house to refurbish these chairs! We’re cutting, sewing and resembling the chairs and would love your help! No sewing experience necessary. There’s just two more work days until the summer break, join us on either (or both) Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon!
Raise the Roof
Friday, May 19
On Friday, May 19 we’ll be celebrating with our congregation, and those who rent our building, at how much we’ve been able to raise for our roof! To host a table you will be asked to personally invite people to the event as well as bring one dessert to share for at least 8 people. There will be a shared dessert table for the whole group. Don’t feel any pressure to fill your table; we can plug people in as needed, but offering a personal invitation is key.
Green Thumb Day
Saturday May 20
Join us for one more Green Thumb Workday.We’ll be meeting at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning to continue beautifying our church landscape with a large focus on mulching. If you have garden tools and wheelbarrows to spare please join us for a morning of landscaping!
Wet Cement II
Sunday, May 21
We’ll be meeting as a congregation once again to discuss the vision process. Our Wet Cement session will utilize the World Cafe’ process, which is designed around clusters of four people. Each Scribe serves a different cluster of four, and the clusters will change during the 90-minute discussion. The primary role of the scribe is to help true collaborative dialogue happen and then pass on the essence of the conversation to our Vision Pathway Team. Not everyone has to be a scribe- please join us, your input if very valuable!

In His Service
In His Service (IHS) is a week-long service event where we invite youth (grades 6th-12th) to come stay with us at St. Luke-Ann Arbor and serve our community. Our largest need is chaperones and drivers for the a.m. and p.m. service projects and the midday fun event. We are also always happy to have volunteers at the church for the down time and devotional times, and if you are really brave to stay the night, that’s always a great help!
Beginning in July
Circles is a unique program that is based on the premise that developing meaningful relationships across socio-economic lines can have a dramatic impact on the effort to move families out of poverty. Knowing that relationships and connections matter, the Circles program matches a person in poverty with at least three middle or upper income partners for at least 18 months to build relationships. The goal of these relationships is to break the cycle of generational poverty by creating circles of support and connections with people who are committed to making real change in our community.
Circle Allies are members of the community who want to create a supportive, befriending relationship with a low-income individual (aka Circle Leader) or family enrolled in the program. The Circle Allies support and learn from the Circle Leader as they work together toward accomplishing the Leader’s plan.
