Women's Fellowship Bible Study

posted Feb 24, 2018, 7:30 AM by St. Luke's Church

Beginning Thursday, April 5th, at 2:00pm we will be having a Bible Study together. We will be using a video series and our Bibles to explore the following…

Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves.

Failure, rejection, sickness, losing a loved one, being alone—the fears we carry are many and heavy. Fear can be a tyrant, a bully we can't hide from. It can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships, and hinder our faith.

When we're struck with fear, where do we turn? Can God really be trusted?

In five heartfelt sessions based on her book, Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves, speaker and author Trillia Newbell invites women to explore their fears and how those fears impact their relationships, self-esteem, peace of mind, and walk with God. Each session features real-life stories of women who are wrestling with fear due to tragic events, difficult circumstances, or deep anxiety about what may or may not happen. Trillia will walk through Scriptures that show God's love and strength when we are afraid and His faithfulness in times of trouble.

Whatever your fear, you will realize you are not alone, nor are you without hope. You have the One who can calm your fears, grow your faith, and give the peace your heart craves.

Pastor Michael will be facilitating this Bible/Video discussion time. Our plan is to meet on the first Thursday of April, June, August, September, and October. Bring your Bible, a notebook, a friend, and a snack to share with others. We will have coffee and water ready to go.

Thank you

Pastor's Message - March

posted Feb 24, 2018, 7:06 AM by St. Luke's Church

The great Hymn writer Fanny Crosby penned these words…

    Tell me the story of Jesus,
    Write on my heart every word;
    Tell me the story of Jesus,
    Sweetest that ever was heard. 
The story of Jesus cannot be kept quiet. From the very beginning, it had to be told. The Shepherds “spread the word” about the angels and the Christ child (Luke 2:17). As Jesus began healing people, “news about him spread all over…” (Matthew 4:24). After Jesus’ death, resurrection, and ascension, the authorities ordered the disciples to stop preaching about Him. They responded, “We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20).

It should be the same with us today. We should be telling others “the story of Jesus.” As Jesus has changed our lives we should be telling others about this change. When we do this we are fulfilling Jesus’ prediction the His followers would be His “witnesses.”

And here is the really cool thing…we do not need special techniques or training to tell other people about what Jesus has done in our lives. We just need to share what we were like, what Jesus did, and what we are like now. We might think our story is not all that great or is simple and boring. But God uses the simple things of this world to do mighty things. We never know who needs to hear what we have to say. God can bring abundant fruit from the smallest of seeds.

Tell of the cross where they nailed Him,
Writhing in anguish and pain;
Tell of the grave where they laid Him,
Tell how He liveth again.
Love in that story so tender,
Clearer than ever I see;
Stay, let me weep while you whisper,
“Love paid the ransom for me.”  (Verse 3 of “Tell Me the Story of Jesus)

(Jesus) said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Acts 1:7-8 (NIV)

We must simply tell the story of Jesus.

Pastor's Message - Feburary 2018

posted Feb 4, 2018, 1:16 PM by St. Luke's Church   [ updated Feb 4, 2018, 1:18 PM ]

It hardly seems possible but Ash Wednesday is less than three weeks away. We just got our Christmas decorations put away and here comes Lent! I am excited about walking through the Lenten season with you. This special time of preparation is an opportunity to recommit ourselves to our walk of faith with Jesus Christ. The Ash Wednesday service is a powerful reminder of what we believe and who we follow. Make plans now to be here on February 14th at 7:00pm for this special service. I am aware this is also Valentine’s Day. Without getting to “sappy” we need to remember who our first love really is – Jesus. What a great way to begin this season of remembering and sacrifice by bringing your “sweetheart” to church and worship together.

The remaining Wednesday’s of Lent we will again be having Soup Suppers together at 6:00pm followed by a service. We will be worshipping together and viewing portions of the movie “Son of God” each night. This movie
will take us on a journey with Jesus from the beginning to His resurrection. If you are not able to make it each Wednesday that is ok. You will be able to follow the movie easily when you are able to be here. I invite you to make plans now to set aside the Wednesday nights of Lent as a time to worship and learn with your church

During Lent many Christians commit to fasting, as well as giving up certain luxuries in order to "replicate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ's journey into the desert for 40 days." Many Christians also add a Lenten spiritual discipline, such as
reading a daily devotional or praying through a Lenten calendar, to help draw themselves near to God. These traditions may be something you would like to incorporate into your Lenten observance this year. If you need help with resources or ideas let me know, I will be glad to assist in any way I am able.

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14.6 (NIV). May this Lenten season be a time of getting to know THE way, THE truth, and THE life better.
In His Service,
Pastor Michael
