A Service For the Blessing of Animals
A Blessing of Animals, in many congregations, witnesses to God’s and the Church’s love, care, and concern for creation. As we recognize our mutual interdependence with God’s creatures, the Church’s witness of stewardship of creation is strengthened. St Luke’s will have a service for the Blessing of Animals on October 1 at 2:00 in the outdoor space (weather permitting), indoors in the fellowship hall if necessary. Please come and bring your animals -dogs, cats, birds, bunnies, snakes, hamsters, guinea pigs, goats, etc. We only request that you bring a means to control your pet.
Racial & LGBTQ Identity
Talking about race, faith, and sexuality isn’t always easy, but it’s needed now more than ever. King Avenue United Methodist Church is proud to welcome social justice activist and LGBT worship leader Darren Calhoun to share his personal journey to bridge the divide that exists between racial and sexual inclusivity.

For about 35 years, St. Luke’s has participated in the CROP Walk every October to raise funds for Church World Service. These funds have helped battle hunger and poverty locally and around the world.
This year’s walk is Sunday, October 8, in the afternoon. The St. Luke’s walkers will gather in the Fellowship Hall after worship to eat lunch together and then travel together to Scioto Audubon Metro Park just south of downtown where the walk takes place.
You can volunteer to walk, to drive to the park and back, to help prepare and serve the lunch and to clean up. You can donate money. You can donate food for the lunch. You can pray. If you would like to help, please contact Tom Culberson. If you wish to donate money, you can see any of the walkers.
