New Bible Study on Acts

will begin on Thursday, Jan. 22 at Noon.  Please join us- bagged lunches are welcome!  For preparation, please read the first chapter and the introduction to Acts in a study Bible.

The Acts of the Apostles is an action-packed account of the early church.  As you read, watch for the work of the Holy Spirit- deeds of power, fiery preaching, generous giving, and amazing prison breaks.  And, don’t be surprised if you find the Holy Spirit at work in your own life!

Happy St. Luke Day!  Today, October 18, is the commemoration of Luke, the Evangelist, for whom our congregation is named!Luke is known for being a faithful writer, physician, apostle and historian.  You can read more about this faithful servant at Wikipedia or here.

Almighty God, who inspired your servant Luke the physician to declare in the Gospel the love and healing power of your Son: Graciously continue in your church the same love and power to heal, to the praise and glory of your Name; through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.
When have you seen a “Saint Luke” moment of love or healing in our church?  Take a few moments today to call another person in our church and share!

20th Sunday after Pentecost: Oct. 14, 2012

This Sunday we will hear,  “Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, “You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”

This is a tough teaching, but one that invites us to lots of thought and conversation!  How do we live generously in our society today?
