Join us for Pancakes on Shrove Tuesday!

Shrove Tuesday, Fasnacht, Marti Gras, Fat Tuesday, Carnival, Pancake Tuesday…whatever you call it, it’s coming up this Tuesday!

Grab a friend and come join us to celebrate and prepare to enter into the season of Lent.

Here are the details: Tuesday, February 9, 6-8pm at IHOP. There will be a section reserved in the front for St. Lukers- each person or family will order and pay on their own.

We’ll have:

  • Alleluia coloring sheets for the kids.
  • Mini-devotions to share at your table.
  • Marti gras beads and decorations.
  • Fun and uplifting conversation (you provide!)
  • And of course…all you can eat pancakes!

Please RSVP if you are able to stlukespastor@comcast.net so we can get a count. Come even if you can’t RSVP though!

This change in location is due to low planning time, because of a very early Lenten season and Pastor Kate’s recent leave; we hope you’ll take the risk and join us in a new spot!

Sermon for Aug. 16, 2015

12th Sunday after Pentecost

August 16, 2015

Pastor Kate Costa

Jesus Christ is the bread of life. He is our manna, come down from heaven. And this morning we hear him proclaim, “Those who eat of my flesh and drink of my blood will have eternal life.”

Do you remember the book Tuck Everlasting? I read it in elementary school, just when I was starting to realize that I wouldn’t stay young forever. I was getting ready, like our many children who gathered around the altar last week, to start a new year and move up to the middle school. I was excited about the change, but at the same time it seemed like it would be nice to stay at Greendale Elementary School forever, with the kids that I had grown up with, the playground equipment that was familiar, and no pesky new locker combinations to memorize. All the same.
