St. Luke's Lutheran Church - Glorifying the Triune God Since 1980
July 25: At what point do things get so bad that God has no choice but to start over? Indeed, the book of Genesis has just such a time. Within a few generations man’s evil was so deep that despite many calls to return to God went unheeded As a result, God started over. He sent a flood to destroy the earth. The evidence of this is everywhere in the geological record for those that wish to see the truth. God’s judgment, though, came to an end with a glorious promise that no flood will ever destroy the world again. A rainbow was put in the sky to remind us of His love for the world. It’s a love that was shown in its fullness in the cross of Jesus who took all judgment upon Himself that we might have eternal life.

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!

As you came to church this morning you noticed our brand new parking lot and sidewalk. We thank God for these blessings and we are grateful to the voters of St. Luke’s through whom the Lord made this happen. We pray that these additions will be a good first impression of our church for all who attend.

The Flood of Noah was an absolute incredible event! According to St. Peter, to what does it ultimately point?
We want you to have what God has so graciously given us through His Word and Sacraments. God’s word tells us that He wants us to gather together to worship Him with prayers and praises and to encourage one another with His promises in Jesus Christ. The greatest need that we have is to know Jesus by faith as the unique Son of God Who died for us that we might be forgiven of all our sins, and rose again from the dead that we might have life eternal. By means of His word and sacraments His Holy Spirit sustains us in faith and enables us to produce good works in His sight. St. Luke’s is a congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.
