Care for Members

blood_pressureMembers of the St. Luke’s congregation carry each other in prayer and support each other in various ways. 

If you would like to help with any of these ministries, please contact:

Welcome Visitors: Deliver a warm welcome and loaf of bread to visitors who have attended our worship services. Contact Carolynn Joesten if you would like to help extend this welcome.

Greeters: Welcome visitors and members before each worship service.  Contact Cindy Lawrence by email or (847) 430-3303 if you would like to serve.

Home Visitors: are the people who regularly visit our home bound members and take communion to them. Anyone interested should contact the church office.

Flower Delivery: Iris Henderson (847) 823-1828 email develops a schedule of volunteers who deliver the altar flowers to members who are hospitalized, in nursing homes or who are confined to their homes.

The Prayer Shawl Gatherings are scheduled for 7:00 in the evening on the third Tuesday of each month except for December. Thanks to all who have provided prayer shawls. Over 490 shawls have been made and delivered.

Card Ministry: If your creative bent is making greeting cards, these cards are sent to members of the congregation who are ill, who have lost a loved one, or to let people know that our congregation is thinking about them. Anyone is invited to join the group. For more information contact Amy Burrows via email.

Blood Pressure and Donation: Nurses in the congregation are available once each month to take your blood pressure. Once each year, Life Source sets up at St. Luke’s to serve those who wish to donate blood.

At the Time of Death: Messages about deaths in the congregation and funeral arrangements are broadcast by email to those who wish to be notified and have subscribed to the distribution list.

Dinner by Member Care: While you are in the hospital, recovering from an illness or after you have a baby, the Member Care Cabinet would like to provide a dinner for your family.

  1. Fill out this Dinner Menu, or pick one up at the church office.
  2. Return it to church by scanning and emailing; bringing it to the church office or by calling the church office with your selections.
  3. All we ask is that you give us 2—3 days notice. We hope you feel better soon.
