St. Luke's Lutheran Church - Glorifying the Triune God Since 1980
“He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.'” Luke16:31
16th Sunday After Pentecost: Today we are confronted again by what it means to be wealthy. The world’s definition is that you have lots of money and lots of things that can make life so enjoyable. The problem with this is that it can leads to a spiritual complacency that forfeits heaven. True wealth, according to God, is something different. It’s having faith in Jesus through whom you are justified. It’s having your name written in the Book of Life. It’s having heaven secured through our trust in the blood of Christ. This is what true wealth is - the everlasting joys of heaven given by grace through faith! It’s for this reason God creates the ministry and gives pastors and teachers to the Church—that we might have true and lasting wealth!

Holy Communion: 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!
September 25th Theology Question: We have a history question for you this morning! What event in 1817 was the motivation for Lutherans leaving Europe and coming to America?
St. Luke's Facebook page was created in January, 2013, and we currently have 145 followers. They might not walk in the doors, but they are keeping in touch in the shadows. What an opportunity to share the Good News! Our congregation is not on any other social media platform. Here's a link to our Facebook page. Gail is hoping someone will take over as administrator. It should be a member of the congregation and who is also on Facebook. Gail will help you get started. Please send her an email or call her at (720) 201 - 8743.

St. Luke’s Allen Organ is showing some signs of aging. We anticipate that it might need to be replaced in the future. By approval of the voters’ assembly, a special fund has been established to save for its replacement. If you wish to contribute to the fund over the coming months and years, please note on your check or envelope, “Organ Fund.”
Please remember these requests in your prayers this week. Thank you!
