St. Luke's Lutheran Church - Glorifying the Triune God Since 1980
“Jesus looked at them and said, `With man it is impossible, but not with God. For with God, all things are possible.” Mark 10:27
Today’s Scripture lessons call on us to examine where we go to find our security and contentment in life. Many people are tempted to find these needs in earthly things - in stocks and bonds, in money and possessions, in careers and even government. But Jesus reminds us today that these things do not ultimately satisfy us nor keep us secure. Worshipping money and things will eventually let us down. Only in God do we find lasting security and eternal joy! Only at the cross do we receive blessings that last forever! That’s where our true wealth is found! - in the God of grace who holds the ages in His hands!

Holy Communion will be celebrated in our worship service this morning. Because the Bible calls us to have the same understanding of the Christian faith (1 Cor. 10:1-22), to believe that Jesus’ body and blood are truly present (Mt. 26:26-28, 1 Cor. 10:16, 11:27), and to properly prepare (1 Cor. 11:27-32), we invite forward at this time those who are confirmed members of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. If you are not yet a member and would like to receive communion, we invite you to speak with the pastor about instruction and membership. We openly and joyfully would like to have you as a member and extend this invitation to you!
