Michelle Freels, Parish Administrator  stlukesnlr@gmail.com  
 
I am very excited to be working for St. Luke's as the Parish Administrator. Before coming to St. Luke's I worked for Pathfinder, Inc. as an Accountant-ICF and UofA Cooperative Extension Service as an Accounting Tech. Both of these positions were full-time and I learned a lot. However, they took me away from spending the time I wanted to with my family. My wonderful husband John of 16 years has blessed me with this opportunity to work part-time. I am happy to be in a caring place with likeminded Christians in a more supportive, accepting and loving environment. I have a heart for God and I have always felt drawn to helping others and doing His work. I feel I was lead here and I have found all the things I wanted. I am very organized, positive, and a problem solver. I enjoy reading, writing poetry, singing, playing games, working puzzles, attending Central Baptist Church - NLR and most of all spending time with family.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rees Roberts, Organist and Choir Director   rees.r95@gmail.com
It is with great joy that I’ve accepted the call to St. Luke’s as your new Organist & Choirmaster. My roots plant me firmly in Little Rock, where I grew up, and have spent most of my life. I started out life as a Southern Baptist, and discovered not just the organ, but a love of music. I’ve been taken by it ever since. I began my piano studies with Craig Chotard, and eventually transitioned to organ with him. Unbeknownst to neither Craig nor I at the time, during those grueling hour long lessons, he was fostering a devout young Episcopalian. My work as a church musician has taken me as far as Boston and Ohio, and been as near to home as just a few blocks. I look forward to this new adventure with each of you. There are lots of exciting things, both musically and spiritually, on the horizon for St. Luke’s! Lift up your hearts!

The Vestry
 
The Vestry of St. Luke’s is responsible for carrying out the mission of the church; “to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.” The Vestry operates under the Canons of the Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Arkansas. The 12 elected lay members, along with the rector, are responsible for managing the parish. Members serve three year terms, with four members elected annually at the parish meeting. Officers include the senior warden, junior warden, clerk and treasurer.  The treasurer is not an elected Vestry member. The Vestry meets monthly, excluding July/August, on the third Tuesday of the month.
 
Expectations for Vestry members include having a strong personal commitment to Jesus Christ and to carrying out his ministry in our community; being a member in good standing of he Episcopal Church; regular in prayer, worship, and attendance at Vestry meetings. Vestry members must be active in the life of the parish and willing to assume leadership. They must honor and be an up to date  pledger of record and be committed to sacrificial financial giving to the parish. Each member is called to love God first, the mission of the church, secondly and their own personal needs lastly. Ultimately, Vestry members must be open to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
