BECAUSE OUR MEMORIES MATTER
That's why on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12th 8:30 AM at Jackson's North Park St. Luke Lutheran Community is walking to join the fight to end Alzheimer's. We are holding special fundraisers to once again earn our place in the community as a force to end this devastating disease.
The funds raised through Walk to End Alzheimer's benefit the care, support, and research efforts of The Alzheimer's Association.
Monies raised help families across the country by continuing to provide and enhance programs focusing on education and support, advance critical research studies into methods of treatment, prevention and ultimately, a cure, and they speak up for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer's through public policy initiatives.
If you would like to join the St. Luke Lutheran Community team, go to http://act.alz.org/ and select REGISTER then JOIN A TEAM. Choose St. Luke Lutheran Community and follow the directions.
The next step in the walk is asking friends and family to support you! Visit http://act.alz.org/ and click DONATE. Registration & donation forms are also available at the front desk of St. Luke - North Canton.
Special thanks to Joanne Cowley for organizing our White Elephant Sale in the gift shop, candy sale and our Memory Jars. Be sure to stop in and take a look!
JOIN US IN LEADING THE WAY TO THE END OF ALZHEIMER'S!
From the Administrator:
Pastor Kennell has made the very difficult decision to retire (a second time) from St. Luke Lutheran Community North Canton effective May 28, 2013. We have been blessed spiritually by his wisdom, kind demeanor and sense of humor, but most of all by his love for the Lord. We have also been very fortunate to have worked alongside his wife, Debbie Kennell, who has spent much of her time composing our daily devotions and ensuring that Pastor Kennell was here despite her protests that he should slow down.
Please join us in a reception for Pastor Kennell following the May 28th service as well as a reception following the Sunday 2pm service on June 2nd to welcome Pastor Christopher Bartholomew. Pastor Bartholomew will conduct 2 services weekly, Sunday at 2pm and Tuesdays at 10:30am. He will also be on campus all day on Tuesday to minister to those residents and families who are in need of spiritual guidance and we are most grateful for that accommodation.
Pastor Bartholomew was gracious enough to provide a biography so that you will get to know him better and that is included below. Please join me in saying goodbye to Pastor and Debbie Kennell and in offering our best wishes for a successful future to PastorChristopher Bartholomew.
Christopher Bartholomew was born September 25, 1956, in Little Rock, Arkansas. The second oldest of six children, he grew up in Bloomington, IL and Sandusky, OH. He received the associate in arts degree from Golden Valley Lutheran College in 1978, and in 1981 received his B.A. from the University of Minnesota. He attended Princeton Theological Seminary and received his Master of Divinity degree from Luther Northwestern Theological Seminary. He in 1985 was ordained in the American Lutheran Church on June 2, 1985. As pastor he has served congregations in Peoria, IL, Brook Park, OH, and Barberton, OH. In addition, he has served several congregations as interim pastor. He is married to the Rev. Barbara Bartholomew and currently lives in Wadsworth, OH.
