Welcome to Fr. Steve & Family!
First Service/Reception & “Pounding” – Oct. 8
Fr. Stephen Hood joins St. Luke’s as our new rector on October 2 with his first Sunday with us on October 8. There’ll be a reception for Fr. Steve and his family following the 10:30 a.m. service along with a traditional “pounding.” Before your imagination runs away with you, a pounding is a friendship gesture dating back centuries to a time when congregations welcomed a new priest by providing a sack of flour, sugar or other staples for help fill up the new priest’s pantry. For our modern-day pounding, we’re asking everyone attending the reception to bring paper goods, canned items or maybe a frozen dinner or two. The reception Father Steve, his wife Tracy and their children will be hosted by members of the vestry. Read more here about Fr. Steve and his message to the St. Luke’s family.
New Women’s Prayer and Study Group – Starts Sept. 21
This new group will meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month. Our purpose will be to pray together, to study and discuss together, and to be in fellowship. Our first meeting will be on Thursday, September 21, at 10:00 in the Vestry Room. For more information, please contact Deacon Lauri.
The congregation of St. Luke’s welcomes you With Arms Wide Open!
That is our motto… and our message for you and for everyone who is seeking to grow in their relationship with God.
With a caring community of believers, an inspired clergy and a spiritually uplifting church facility, St. Luke’s provides a place to explore and deepen your experience with the Lord. The opportunities for discovery and growth are many — in quiet reflection, in joyful worship, in warm fellowship and in service to those in need within and outside the church.
