Worship News . . .
Our fall/winter worship schedule includes one Sunday service at 10:00 a.m.
Our Tuesday Lectionary study is taking a brief “holiday break”. There will be no more
sessions in December. We will resume on Tuesday, January 4th.
Lenten Devotional Booklet
Looking ahead to Lent ( I know, it’s still Advent), we are going to try something “new” this
year and produce our own Lenten devotional booklet. We are inviting all of our members
and friends to write a brief devotional and prayer. The dates and scripture readings are
available by clicking onto: www.timetosignup.com/stlukessisterbay. You are
invited/encouraged to sign up for at least two different dates. Please email your devotions
and prayers to me (email@example.com) no later than January 15th.
Advent Morning Prayer ~ 9:00 a.m.
Wednesday morning ~ December 1, 8, 15, & 22
Following the brief Morning Prayer service, we will adjourn to the Canterbury Room for coffee, conversation and a light breakfast. Please let me know if you would like to join us: firstname.lastname@example.org or text 414-308-3478.
Zoom Wine & Cheese
As much as COVID disrupted our lives, there were also some benefits. We discovered Zoom! For much of last winter and into the spring, we held a Zoom coffee hour following worship. Now that we have resumed in-person worship, we still want to connect with our members and friends who live elsewhere during the winter months. On the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, we will meet at 5:00 p.m (Central time) for Wine & Cheese via Zoom. The Zoom link will be posted in the E-News.
Mask requirement at worship
Given the Covid-19 cases in Door County, we are asking that anyone attending worship services at St. Luke’s wear a mask whether or not they are vaccinated. We will need to continue with this protocol until the current COVID-19 surge lessens. Thank you for understanding.
The hospital recently informed us that we are now able to visit hospitalized parishioners and friends of the parish. If you are hospitalized and would like a pastoral visit, please let me know. Also, if you wish a home visit, I am happy to call of you. Give me a call.

In his annual visit to St. Luke's Sept. 12, Bishop Matthew Gunter preached on the theme of interdependence. Creation is a web of interconnectedness which is the way God wants us to be, he said. But "this fabric of humanity, he note, is broken by violence.
We try to meet the special needs of both members and visitors through equipping our facility with a hearing loop system, an ADA restroom and a restroom with changing table, access with no stairs to both worship and fellowship space, and accessible parking.
"Our vocation is to live as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. But how can we together grow more deeply with Jesus Christ at the center of our lives, so we can bear witness to his way of love in and for the world?"
- Presiding Bishop Michael Curry

The St. Luke Book Club’s December read is The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times by Jane Goodall, Douglas Abrams, et al. We will meet on Thursday, December 2nd at noon via Zoom with moderator Susan Hoffert.
In the book, Jane focuses on her “Reasons for Hope,” which include the Human Intellect, the Resilience of Nature, the Power of Young People, and the Indomitable Human Spirit. Using stories from her remarkable life, research, and career, “The Book of Hope” explores questions like: How do we stay hopeful? How do we inspire hope in the next generation?
