Advent Season & Christmas Eve Worship

Christmas is a special time of year for us to celebrate the coming of Christ.  In an effort to help us plan appropriately and keep everyone safe, we ask that you reserve your time for Christmas Eve worship.  There is a Generations worship in Founders’ Hall at 4:30pm, four identical worship services in the sanctuary (4:30pm, 6pm, 7:30pm, 9pm) and two identical contemporary worship services in Founders’ Hall (6pm, 7:30pm) Please sign up for Christmas Eve worship here so we can all celebrate the birth of our Savior together with our friends and family! Also check out more Advent resources on our webpage.

On Sunday, we heard how the disciples spoke to people from every nation in their own language. God created the human race and the Gospel is for people from every nation under heaven.

Sunday, May 17

It is with some sadness that we have decided to delay the start of our on campus worship. We know that you are anxious to return to live worship, so are we. After further prayer and consideration, church leadership decided more time was needed to properly prepare our staff, the facility, and cleaning procedures and protocols for in person worship

In these times of uncertainty, we also know that one thing is certain: the Lord is present. Whether we are worshipping in a building or our homes, we are all one as part of Christ’s church. So as we hold our online worship this weekend, please sing loud. Pray that these circumstances continue to bring others closer to Him. Talk with each other about where the Spirit is leading us so that we can all show His love to our neighbor.

Please join us for online worship at 8, 9:30 or 11am on Sunday. Thank you for your patience.

Subject: The Latest St. Luke’s Update

Dear Members of St. Luke’s,

In this rapidly changing health situation, it is important to remember that God’s presence and promises remain constant. As we prayerfully navigate each week, the past has much to teach us. In 1527, the plague returned to Germany. Responding to the fears that flourished among the people, Martin Luther emphasized the importance of providing care for our neighbors, the need to use common sense, and cautioned against recklessness.

It is our heart to serve as much as possible, while also keeping others from risk. This is why we will begin observing all worship online starting with tomorrow’s Lenten Worship. This is in a desire to continue to provide worship opportunities that connect us to God and to one another while also practicing social distancing to “flatten the curve”. The services will be available as followed:

We are also postponing all onsite Bible studies and classes. However we are currently working on online opportunities for our continued study of God’s Word together. Please look for emails on these updates.

As things continue to change, we will be given many new opportunities to live out the Jesus Adventure. New needs will arise for us to find creative solutions, and needs may arise in your home that will require help. Take courage, let the perfect love of God cast out fear, and stay tuned for how you can provide or receive help.

Do not dwell on anticipatory anxiety or fear. Focus on today. Remember that God will provide your daily bread. Take a walk. Read God’s Word. Connect with others in a new way.

We are still here.

God is present.

He has a path through this.

The Pastors and Leadership of St. Luke’s
