UPCOMING CONFERENCES TO CONSIDER
FAITH FAMILY REUNION: Being a Parent of a Prodigal - Retreat
All of us have someone in our lives who has strayed away from faith in Jesus Christ. How can we reach out not only to the prodigal but to the parents, families and friends of prodigals who struggle to know what to do? Join us for a retreat on these important issues and an introduction to a ministry opportunity tat churches everywhere can easily implement.
~Saturday, Jan. 27, 9 am - 3 pm. at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, 5125 Cascade Road SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
THEOLOGICAL CONFERENCE: TAKE HEART, TAKE ACTION
Everywhere we go, we go as a witness to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. But what does it mean to be a witness? How can my witness persuade someone to believe? How can I be a witness to people who really don’t seem to care about church or the faith? Take Heart, Take Action is a theological conference for lay-people and church workers, and the featured speakers will share practical advice and insight into our calling as witnesses of the Gospel.
DATE / TIME: Saturday, Feb. 24 from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. Our Savior Lutheran Church. 7910 East St. Joe Highway, Lansing, MI 48917.
CRAFTERS MEET EVERY OTHER WEDNESDAY

We meetevery other Wednesday, from 10 am until noon. Bring your projects and join us in conversation and artistic expression. Due to the holidays, we next meet on Jan. 10 and 24.
DIRECT YOUR DOLLARS PROGRAM
St. Luke has the opportunity to earn $1,000.00 from SpartanNash, simply by shopping at local company-owned stores, including Family Fare (Coopersville & Allendale, including gas stations), and D&W Fresh Market (Grand Haven). Through the Direct Your Dollars program, we can turn eligible receipts into cash for church projects.
It’s easy! Every time you shop at Family Fare or D&W Fresh Market, save your receipts. They will be collected in a Direct Your Dollars box, located at St. Luke. We do need original receipts to earn the donation, so please, no photocopies.
For every $150,000.00 in receipts collected, we earn $1,000.00 donation. With your support - and your receipts - we’ll be raising money to purchase items needed. Start saving those receipts and ask family and friends to do the same! We’ll collect them throughout the year.
Please direct any questions to Jane Kieft or Muriel Peacock. Thanks from the St. Luke Craft and Knitting Group.
