UPDATE: Brrrrr....it's cold out there! Given the low temperature and addition of wind, we'll be moving this morning's service inside. No need to bring chairs, and now you'll only have to bundle up enough for a short walk from your car. We'll gather together in the cozy warmth of the Sanctuary at 11 am. Doors will open at 10:30. See you soon!
You're invited to commemorate the anniversary of the Reformation with an opportunity to worship as one church! Bring your own camp chairs and picnic blankets and get cozy (at an appropriate social distance) in the lower parking lot outside our white house as we worship as one faith community.
As history records, on Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his "95 Theses" to the Cathedral door in Whittenberg, Germany, marking the beginning of the Protestant Revolution. Martin Luther was raised Roman Catholic, and was even a Roman Catholic priest, however, he was troubled by many traditions of the Roman Catholic church. His "95 Theses" were intended to stir a "town hall" style meeting with members of the church. This act opened the door for others to debate the practices, as well, leading to the formation of the Lutheran church.
Each year, on the last Sunday of October, we take time to reflect on these events and how they shaped history. Join together October 25 at 11 am as we worship as a whole church with a SINGLE SEVICE at 11 am. Our Handbell choir has special music planned and our Worship team will lead us in some old favorites as we celebrate our Lutheran heritage!
We will offer communion during the service. Please bring your own elements or pick up a single-serve, pre-packaged wafer and wine from the check in table.
Tithes and offering will also be collected at the check-in table for this service.
There will be three ways to follow along with service if you'll be joining us in person.
We will have a screen set up to project lyrics and responses as you're familiar with seeing inside the Sanctuary. If this is your preferred way to join in service, please be sure you seat yourself in a location where you're able to view the screen clearly.
We have put together a bulletin that you may download onto your phone or print and bring with you to service. If you have friends you think would benefit from a printed copy, we encourage you to print an extra copy and bring for them as well. Click here to download.
You may also download our app and follow along from there on your mobile device. You'll find a tab labeled "Reformation" at the bottom of the app.
We will still stream service at 11 am on Facebook, YouTube, our St. Lukes website, and our app, or search St. Lukes Lutheran on your Roku TV for those of you not able to join us in person.
Please note, service will run about 1.5 hours. You may want to eat a late breakfast since this will run into lunchtime. Also, the weather forecast shows a drop in temperatures that day, so bundle up accordingly!
