Lent is the church season that begins Ash Wednesday and continues for the 40 days leading up to Easter. This year at St. Luke’s we will be focusing on the final events during the earthly life of Jesus. On March 1st, March 15th, and March 29th, starting at 5:30 pm we will enjoy a light meal followed a brief devotional in the fellowship hall. Our goal is to enjoy fellowship, while we focus our hearts on our personal journey toward the cross. Wednesday, April 12th, we will travel to Feed My Starving Children in Eagan, MN and take part in a food pack, as a way of giving thanks to God for the meals we have enjoyed.
Join us each Sunday at 10:15 AM when we will take a look at another portion of the story of Jesus in the days leading up to his death and resurrection.
On Good Friday, we will have a reflective service at 6:00 PM in the main sanctuary.
Finally, we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with an Easter Breakfast beginning at 9:00 AM, followed by service at 10:15.

Upcoming Event!

 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:18–20 (NIV)

Advent at St. Luke’s

“The Waiting”208751207

Advent is a season when we prepare for the coming of Christmas. Everything around us should be pointing us to Christ. We have reminders everywhere. For example, the twinkling lights on a dark night are to remind us that Jesus, the Light of the World, came to a world shrouded in darkness, to rescue us from sin (John 1). Sometimes, getting all these external reminders ready in time for Christmas may distract us from getting our hearts prepared to worship the Lord Jesus Christmas.
This Advent season, we will light one candle each week as a visual reminder that the Light of the World came to us at Christmas. Please join us in worship while we prepare our hearts to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 10:15AM Sunday.
