Sunday, September 12th, 2021 WE GIVE TO THE EPWORTH WORK DAY OFFERING! Today our church will receive the Annual Epworth Work Day Offering to invest in the comprehensive care we are called by God to provide for the children at Epworth Children’s Home, our church’s ministry to God’s children. This tradition dates back decades to when Methodists were challenged to “Give a Day’s Pay” to the children at Epworth. While the emphasis has shifted a bit over the years, it is still important that we come together to provide spiritual, educational, emotional, and physical support for the children at Epworth. As you consider what God is calling you to give to support our church’s ministry to children, remember Christ’s command to let the little children come to him. He embraces them, welcomes them, loves them, and teaches them. Epworth is answering this call to let the little children come. Your generous contribution to our church’s ministry enables transformation to happen for the children who are served by Epworth. Please find information about Epworth and the Work Day Offering on the bulletin insert. Epworth does not receive apportionment dollars from the United Methodist Conference. This offering is our opportunity to support this vital ministry. Give generously by using the envelope provided for you in the bulletin. For more information about Epworth Children’s Home.
PLEASE MAKE CHECKS PAYABLE TO: ST. LUKE’S UMC with EPWORTH on the memo line. We then send one check to cover all donations.
American resourcefulness churns into a sweet cause – Epworth Ice Cream!
In the past, St Luke’s United Methodist church attendees had a sweet treat, sampling Epworth Ice Cream immediately following the services.
Epworth Ice Cream was born in Columbia South Carolina during the Great Depression. Subsidized with a surplus of peanut butter, orphanage staff relied on the government ration in countless meals. However, none became as popular as its infusion with fresh cream from the onsite dairy. Today peanut butter ice cream is the flagship flavor in a product family where 100% of profits benefit the Epworth Children’s Home, helping children and families live a better life.
South Carolinians can
- Purchase and enjoy 4 flavors available at 31 retailers and 3 restaurants throughout the mid-land area including the University of South Carolina in Columbia
- Purchase online and ship directly to you
Remember, every ounce supports Epworth Children’s Home!
