With care and concern for our community, we are suspending physical services until further notice. You can join us in virtual worship on Sundays at 9:30 am through Zoom.
If you would like more information on how to participate please email:
The Word & The Spirit Blog will be updated weekly with sermons and other resources to help you worship as you are able. We look forward to when we can open our physical doors again and welcome all to worship with us. You may enter Saint Luke as a stranger, but you will leave as a friend.
WHAT IS GOING ON AT SAINT LUKE...
Please remember that our congregations are continuing to minister to the community and world every single day. Your offerings are important and vital as we carry out God’s mission. Click on "Ways to give" at the top for payment options. We truly appreciate the financial gifts you have given. We are deeply grateful and blessed by these gifts! THANK YOU! 😊
The St. Paul Area Synod is encouraging churches in the east metro to collect/raise $50,000 worth of food between now and the end of 2020 in response to the increased need of our residents during this pandemic time.
ST. LUKE will be collecting food items and donations at church on the following Sundays from 1pm to 3pm: September 13, October 11, November 15 and December 13.
All donations will go to St. Francis Basket, our neighborhood food shelf. You may bring food or financial donations on the appointed days (we’ll wear masks and be socially distanced). Or, you may choose to give a financial donation by mailing a check to church. You also may give online through Vanco, where there now is a Food Shelf option for giving.
Here is a list of most needed items: sardines, beets, buckwheat, cabbage, sugar, meat, eggs, milk, fresh produce, dried prunes, oil, peanut butter, jelly, dish soap, shampoo/conditioner, razors/shaving cream, feminine hygiene products, body soap, baby items.
Thank you for your generosity!
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.
WELCOMING YOU HOME
