HEALTH AND WELLNESS MINISTRY
The Health and Wellness Ministry continues to work in multiple ways to bring events and
information to improve the health and well-being of our St. Luke's family and the wider
The Prayer Shawl Ministry continues to meet twice monthly on the first and third Thursday from
7:00-9:00 pm in the Parish House. All are welcome to drop in and bring your hand work for
shared time working together, whether knitting, crocheting, or hand quilting shawls, lap robes,
etc. These items are then given to people who are experiencing health challenges, keeping
them warm and visually reminding them that they are prayed for and remembered. Celeste
Nichols is working on her second prayer shawl already!
There are several events in the works by the Health and Wellness Ministry for the upcoming
year. There will be a Lenten series presented during Coffee: Grounds for Discussion in
collaboration with Adult Education with several guest speakers on the topic of Holy Living/Holy
Dying (see details elsewhere in the newsletter). Dr. Jimi James will once again lead nature
lovers of all ages in a Spring Spiritual Nature Walk on April 28. This will be a wonderful time of
the year to get out, get moving, and discover God's beautiful wildflowers. Time and location will
be announced shortly. We also look forward to the annual Family Bike Ride on the first Sunday
of June, which will be June 2 this year. Again, all ages are welcome-and rewarded with possible
eagle sightings along the bike path and ice cream upon return!
The Health and Wellness Ministry continues to meet quarterly. Our next meeting will be May 19,
2019. These meetings are always after the last Sunday service of the date, for an hour meeting
in the Parish House. All are welcome to join us-and bring your friends and ideas for reaching out
to more people in the name of health.
