SERMON SERIES Easter Sunday is always a glorious celebration. But it is not the end. Now that we are on the other side of the day itself, we can start looking to what is next. This Easter season (through May 16) we will focus on the Book of Acts with this question in mind: “What does the resurrection of Jesus make possible?” Join us as we explore what impact the resurrection has on things like community, forgiveness, inclusion, and more!

A CALL FOR MEMBERS OF THE EDUCATION COMMITTEE: Christian education is the foundation of adult and children’s faith. During trying times this past year, we in the St. Luke congregation and Upper Susquehanna Synod emphasized parishioner safety, but planning for next autumn’s Sunday School, first by way of Zoom meetings, would seem prudent at this time. If you are interested in guiding our church’s christian education path or have suggestions, please contact John Kelsey, Church Council liaison for Education at 570-323-0580 or at email@example.com
