WEEKLY WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
St. Luke’s invites you to worship with us in a safe, socially-distanced way. We have Sanctuary Services every Sunday at 8:30AM and 11:00AM. Live-Stream Services are posted each Sunday morning at 11:00AM on our church website and Facebook page for those who wish to worship with us remotely. Sunday School runs from 9:45AM-10:45AM.
COVID 19 UPDATE
We love being able to gather together on Sundays. While there is no mask mandate at St. Luke’s, our Church Council strongly recommends mask wearing and sitting socially distanced in our pews that are marked with numbers and letters. With the current uptick in the Delta Variant in our county, we want to keep everyone safe.
FALL CONCERT AT ST. LUKE’S
Come to St. Luke’s for a unique festival service that features significant hymn writers through the ages, from the fourth century through the twentieth century, telling their own stories in the first person. This is a publication born of the church and written for the church and is intended to enhance the understanding of hymns by all generations. You will hear music from our Sanctuary and Handbell Choirs, Brass, Piano, Organ, and more! Join us for this wonderful concert on Reformation Weekend, when we celebrate how our hymnody has shaped our lives, our worship, and our relationship with the living God.
WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
Come take part in a new Women’s Bible study on Wednesday mornings at 9AM beginning October 6th in the Education Building. Pastor will lead a Bible study based on a book by Barbara J. Essex, Adjunct Instructor at the Pacific School of Religion. Together, we will explore the traditionally misunderstood or despised women of the Bible and reveal what their stories have to tell us today. Examining lives filled with betrayal, deception, rejection, jealously, and exploitation, this study looks beyond the surface to show us women of exceptional boldness, courage, and determination.
YOUTH GROUP AND CONFIRMATION CLASS
Confirmation Class will be held this Sunday, October 17th, at 3PM in the Education Building. We will learn about the Reformation. Youth Youth group begins with dinner at 4:30PM. We will eat dinner upstairs in the Education Building.At 5PM we will start our heads or tails event. The youth will be split into teams. They will compete in heads or tails games for some fun prizes. This is what we need the parent drivers for. We have some who have volunteered already, but could use one more. Please let us know if you are able. We are giving away prizes this week for the team that wins the heads or tails competition. We are also giving away a prize to the youth who brings the most friends. Invite your friends to come! It’s a great way to share the love of Jesus with them.
Come on out with us to the Dorchester Boat Club on Sunday, October 24th, at 4PM for food, fellowship, music, Martin Luther Trivia, and more as we celebrate Oktoberfest and honor the 504th Anniversary of the Reformation! Bring your own beverage along with a lawn chair. Delicious German food will be abundant, and free will donations are accepted to help us cover the cost.
