Hi ladies, I hope everyone had a lovely summer and is enjoying the fall season (yay for pumpkin spice lattes!) We are excited to kick-off another year of Young Women’s Bible Study at St. Luke’s with our bi-weekly discussions, some new service events in the community, and some purely social events to get to know
