What Lutherans Believe
Through his ministry,
death and resurrection, Christ has saved us from "sin, death, and
the power of the devil." God's gift of faith in Christ's saving
power makes that saving power effective for us. In joy and freedom,
we respond to God's grace with praise and thankful service.

You can share God’s love by providing that simple comfort: DURING SEPTEMBER Large towels, sturdy nail clippers and sturdy combs.
CONFIRMATION A meeting for the parents of confirmation-aged youth takes place after worship on Sept. 7th in the carpeted area off Bell Hall. The topic is organizing a younger-aged youth group to meet once or twice a month. We hope all parents come to plan.

BIBLE STUDY OPPORTUNITY Ever wanted a lunch break with food for thought as well as food for the body? Then try out the Thursday Bible study at St. Luke, which begins at 12 noon. We are done each session by 1 PM. You are welcome to come and study Acts in its entirety or to any single session between now and Thanksgiving. You can “prep” for the session of your choice by reading the appropriate section of the Bible listed below. Suddenly names you’ve always seen like Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, Thessalonians, and Corinthians will take on meaning. You will get to know a cast of hundreds of Biblical characters. You will discover the mission of the early Christians. Mark your calendars now.First class, Sept. 18 – Introduction
