On Sunday evening, September 1, at 5:12PM, all are invited to come and participate in our Dinner Church. We will meet in the fellowship hall for a meal together. In the midst of that meal, we will sing songs. We will pray together; take communion, hear a word of Scripture and a brief homily tying the scripture verses to our everyday lives. This is the perfect worship service to invite that neighbor, friend, or family member that might have a complicated relationship or no relationship with the church. It’s a different kind of service at a different kind of time. We don’t have pews. We don’t have a steeple. We have a table, and we will set a place for you!

REED KURTZ PERFORMANCE
On Tuesday, September 10, at 7PM, Reed Kurtz, a 17 year old, well-known pianist in the Summerville and Charleston area will be performing at St. Luke’s. His impressionistic style brings out a more experimental approach to his playing while staying true to the original integrity of the composer. Reed’s program will include works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin.
The first event in the St. Luke’s Lutheran Church concert series will be on Thursday, September 12, at 7PM in the sanctuary. Mr. Chad Martin will provide organ accompaniment for one of the greatest silent films of all time, The General. With its debut in 1926, the film depicts a young, rejected soldier (Buster Keaton) during the Civil War having to risk his life to save his two great loves: his locomotive and his girl! Come experience the thrill found in silent film….the chases, the slapstick comedy, and true love. All ages are welcome.
