The Saint Luke’s commitment season will kick off on Sunday, Oct. 25! For information or to make a pledge, visit our Commitment 2021 web page.
Last month Saint Luke’s was introduced to our new PCUSA mission co-workers, Elmarie and Scott Parker, who live in Beirut and serve the people of Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. A letter, written by Scott, to the children of our church was featured in the Sept. 16 Highlights. This month, Scott has written a letter geared more to the adults in our congregation. It describes some of their work and a bit about the current situation Beirut following a massive explosion in the city on August 4, 2020.
In the coming months you will be hearing more about the Parkers and our newly developing relationship with them. In the meantime, please keep Elmarie and Scott Parker and the people and churches in Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria in your prayers. Especially remember those in Beirut during this dark, post-blast time.

Join us on on Sunday, Nov. 8, at 4 pm, for a Virtual Hymn Festival – Wholeness, Healing and Hope for Our Time. Saint Luke’s musicians and readers in a devotional and celebratory musical program featuring old and new hymns for listening and singing together.
plural noun: half-truths
- a statement that conveys only part of the truth.
Do you ever wonder about sayings like, “God helps those who help themselves.”? Or how about, “Everything happens for a reason.”? They are simple phrases. They sound Christian – like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways. Perhaps now more than ever, our faith compels us to unpack these half-truths and grow in our understanding of the truth behind them. Join us in worship over the next seven weeks as we explore them and come to a deeper understanding of who God is and who God calls us to be.
