WHAT IS GOING ON AT SAINT LUKE...
Lent/Holy Week Schedule
An Ice Cream Social will take place at St. Luke on Saturday, Feb. 22, 3:30pm to 5pm: a great opportunity for St. Luke/St. Mark to get to know Pr. Emily and socialize with each other.

Starting in 2020, we will be sharing worship once a month together between St. Luke and St. Mark! This is exciting as we build on the relationships we have with each other, worship together, praise God and share the gifts we have been blessed with. Shared worship will happen on the last Sunday of the month, regardless of whether it is a fourth or fifth Sunday.
The 2020 schedule for the Sunday morning is as follows; all services are at 9:30am:
January 26th: worship @ St. Luke
February 23rd: worship @St. Mark
March 29th: worship @St. Luke
April 26th: worship @St. Mark
May 31st: worship @St. Luke
June 28th: worship @ St. Mark
July 26th: worship @ St. Luke
August 30th: worship @ St. Mark
September 27th: worship @St. Luke
October 25th: worship @St. Mark
November 29th: worship @ St. Luke
December 27th: worship @St. Mark
The focus of these services will be to learn more about our individual congregations, build and strengthen relationships, and delight in the opportunity to share in worship and fellowship together.
Important Virus Update
I lift up my eyes to the hills — from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth.” – Psalm 121
Dear Members of St. Mark and St. Luke Congregations,
In response to the Governor’s directive, we will suspend in-person worship and activities at both St. Luke and St. Mark until further notice out of a deep concern to care for and protect our neighbor. The Sunday message and readings will be emailed by Sunday morning and we will be creating new ways for us to worship together, even if we cannot be physically present with one another.
This is nothing I’ve ever had to work with before, so it is new territory for all of us. I will do my best to find the ways that we can still be church without being physically together. We will be joined in the Spirit of Christ and unified in our commitment to do all that we can to slow the spread of this virus. In this way we obey our Lord’s command to love our neighbor.
Thank you for your understanding and we will be in touch regularly with any updates. In the meantime, know that you are in my prayers – prayers of gratitude for your faithfulness, prayers for health and safety for you and your loved ones and our larger community, prayers for the protection of all those responding on the front lines of this illness, and prayers for wisdom and courage for our community and civic leaders. I offer all these prayers in the confidence and faith that is ours through Jesus the Christ, our Savior, Healer, and Lord.
