Community Life

St. Luke Lutheran Church Community Life
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”Matthew 18:20

The life of the St. Luke community is vibrant, moving, and ever growing

With new opportunities, one-time experiences, and short-term and long term commitments St. Luke is dedicated to being relevant in today’s world. We believe that at the heart of our call as Christians is an invitation to experience life side-by-side with each other, to support one another in times of pain and struggle, to celebrate together when moments of joy are experienced, and to simply laugh and let off steam. Throughout the year we have some regularly occurring events, as well as some special opportunities that arise from within. All are invited to be a part of the community life at St. Luke – member or non-member, friend, visitor, seeker, or one who is part of another faith community. But be warned – prepare to make some connections with others and to have an amazingly fun time!

A quick glimpse at just some of our yearly events:

St. Luke Family Fun FestivalFall Family Festival

An inter-generational alternative to Halloween with fun activities, games, a chili cook-off and “trick-or-treating” throughout the Fellowship Hall. Costumes are encouraged to be worn by children – and children at heart! Dinner is always delicious and the fellowship is paramount. This event is coordinated by the Confirmation Families in late October.

Advent Festival

This fun, family event has crafts for all ages, including wreath making, ornaments and gifts. Held on the first Sunday evening of Advent (late November/early December), a soup supper and brief prayer service helps members focus on the season of Advent and Christmas.

Congregational Picnic

The first Sunday in September is our “Kickoff Sunday” picnic on the lawn. Adults, youth and children are all invited to bring a dish and enjoy fellowship as the new autumn worship schedule begins. There are supervised lawn games for children. It’s a great day to invite a neighbor, friend or gamily member to worship.

Christmas Program

The Sunday School classes present a Christmas program for the community on the second Sunday in December. The program features readings, children’s choirs, and favorite Christmas hymns.
