St. Luke's Lutheran Church - Glorifying the Triune God Since 1980
“When the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all truth for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come.” John 16:13
The world is frail. It easily crumbles under the weight of its sin. We too are frail. Our bodies ache. We get tired. We groan because of sin. But is this where our focus in life should be—on all that is wrong? The answer is no! For we hear from God’s Word today that God is going to make everything new again! He is going to make a new heaven and a new earth. He’s going to glorify His saints and give them a glorified kingdom to live in! What great things are coming! What great things lie ahead! Our glorification! The glorification of the Church! This is the ultimate focus of our lives! The glory to come! Because of this, the Christian lives a different life - not focused on defeat but focused on the victories of God through Jesus Christ!

The Lord's Supper 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!
(Answers given at the end of Sunday services.)

A. An advocate or helper or counselor.
B. A judge that comes to judge you.

D. A castle that protects you.
E. A song bird that entertains you.
Our district convention will take place this year June 9th and 10th. For this convention congregations are asked to take an offering which will support an important mission. This year’s mission is the Siberian Lutheran Seminary in Novosibirsk, Russia. After years of communist rule, how beautiful it is that the Gospel is returning! If you would like to contribute, you may do so by placing an extra offering envelope into the offering plate that is designated for this mission. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS OFFERING IS TO BE IN ADDITION TO YOUR REGULAR SUNDAY OFFERINGS. Our church still needs our regular offerings to run!
May 19: Hey everyone, we are beginning to wrap up our study on Angels. Our last topic will feature Jesus’ own dealings with the devil. As we look into this area we invite everyone to come along! We’ll be meeting in the Fellowship Hall at 10:00 a.m. Hop to see you there!
In our prayers this morning we remember:
