Give a Christmas Gift to a Foster Kid!
St. Luke’s Lutheran Church continues its partnership with Dane County Human Services to provide Christmas gifts to foster and kinship kiddos along with teens aging out of foster care.
Due to COVID-19, we are requesting gift cards of any amount to the following:
Target, Walmart, Amazon, Kwik Trip, Walgreens, Burlington Coat Factory, Woodmans, Pick N Save, Best Buy and Visa gift cards.
Gift cards can be mailed or dropped in the mailbox by the church entrance:
St Luke’s Lutheran Church
Attention: Julie Murray
7337 Hubbard Ave.
Middleton, WI 53562
The collection is open now thru Sunday December 13, 2020. Dane County social workers will deliver the gift cards to the kids along with a Christmas card.
Many of these kiddos are struggling at a deeper level during the pandemic. Sharing the joy of Christmas can be a bright spot; you can make a difference!

Children’s Ministry Live Nativity at Drive-In Christmas Services
This year most certainly looks different, but the promise of Jesus and his coming to us as love has not changed. We are not able to safely have a Christmas Program this year, but we have the opportunity for a live nativity.
Students may sign up to be Mary, Joseph, a star, and more; and to walk up to the stable living out the story of Christmas as it is read during our drive-in services. The schedule and sign up is available here.
