Safe Church Training
 
The Episcopal Church requires Safe Church Training to make our churches safe for everyone. All clergy, vestry and employees are required to take both courses every 3 years. All keyholders are required to take Tier Two training every 3 years. We are hoping to have everyone complete their training by springtime.
 
Here are the upcoming training courses. Please get signed up if you can. They offer these courses once a month. Call Maxine at the office to let her know when you have completed a course or if you have any questions.

Fall Mission Area Gatherings
 

Join fellow Episcopalians from your mission area for a time of prayer and fellowship. Canon Kelsey Schuster and representatives from ECMN Council will preview the budget that will be considered at the 2022 Convention and review other items coming before convention this year. This will be your opportunity to ask questions, consider the ways that the budget reflects our shared values as a diocese and as a mission area, and offer feedback.
 
St. Luke’s is part of the East Metro Mission Area. The Fall Mission Gathering for our area is being held online on October 15th. These gatherings are open to everyone, but will be particularly useful for lay and clergy delegates to convention. Learn more and register at www.episcopalmn.org under events.

Garden Club 

Greetings Gardeners! The gardens are looking pretty great. Thank you for all your hard work. As you well know, keeping up the gardens is an ongoing task. If you would like to help, contact Julie Hicks to set up a time and find out what needs to be done.

OR... Just stop by and take a look. I'm sure you will find some weeds to pull and things that need to be done.
