The_Good_Life_Slide.png THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL LIFE | LENTEN 2021

Lent is the 40 days leading up to Easter. Lent begins on February 17th, which was Ash Wednesday. Throughout the Lenten season, St. Luke's is using The Good And Beautiful Life book by James Bryan Smith as a focus in our Sunday morning series. We invite you to join us on Sunday mornings or even in a small group as we go through this book each week.

WATCH SERMONS


STATIONS OF THE CROSS

We invite you to do as pilgrims for centuries have done when unable to visit Jerusalem to walk the final footsteps of Jesus on the Via Delorosa. They made this journey using the Stations of the Cross.

EASTER AT ST. LUKE'S

EASTER AT ST. LUKE'S

ST. LUKE'S IS: OPEN. WE MEAN IT.

No matter who you are or what your story is, we welcome you with unconditional love - exactly how Jesus does. Because of this, expect to see diversity at St. Luke's - in age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and life experience. We place a high value on diversity and have recently stated this through our Open Statement.

Spiritual growth is a lifelong commitment. Once you begin the journey, it’s only normal to think, “What’s next?” We would love to be a part of helping you find a spiritual path forward that works for you. Check out Starting Point – a 30-minute conversation with members of the church where you can become acquainted with St. Luke’s and learn next step possibilities designed specifically for you. Casual in nature, you are encouraged to bring any questions. After you register for the session of your choice, you’ll receive a link to join the zoom.

Palm Sunday | Sunday, March 28

Online | Traditional and Contemporary  | 9:30, 11AM, 4PM, 7PM 

Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week (the Sunday before Easter) and is celebrated as Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. As He entered the city, people cut palm branches, waved them in the air, and laid them on the ground before Jesus as He rode into the city on a donkey. The palm branches represented goodness and were symbolic of the final victory He would soon fulfill over death. We invite you to join with us in waving the palm branch from your Lent-at-home kit during this service.

Holy Thursday | Thursday, April 1

In-Person and Online | 7PM

Holy Thursday is also referred to as Maundy Thursday. Maundy Thursday is the Thursday before Easter and is celebrated in commemoration of the Last Supper. The word “maundy” is derived from the Latin word for command, and is a reference to Jesus’ commandment to the disciples to “love one another as I have loved you.” We will celebrate Holy Communion in this service, as we honor Jesus’ life and sacrifice. We invite you to join us in taking Communion at home during the service.

Good Friday | Friday, April 2

In-Person | 12PM
Online | 12PM, 7PM 

Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus and His death on the cross. The word “good” can be interpreted as “holy.” The death of Jesus led to His Resurrection and victory over sin, and leads us to the celebration of Easter. This service is traditionally a service of darkness, we invite you to darken the room in which you are watching and to set out the nails from your Lent-at-home kit.
