 been involved in the church education program, we ask for your assistance in going through the rooms and materials. Thank you!

    The summer months bring the excitement of warm weather, vacations and extra time to enjoy creation. Most of our Luke Society ministries 
 are situated in warm climates all year long, but they also face issues such as drought, extreme heat and tropical storms. In the face of these 
 obstacles they are undeterred in their efforts to provide health to their people. It's a joy to serve alongside Chandler Christian Reformed Church
 as together we support these directors and their passion to share the Gospel. Thank you for your continued support of the Luke Society.
 July 10 - Church Council will meet.
