WORSHIP What's up with worship? The sermon series “St. Luke’s Celebrates” is all about celebrating and rejoicing in the gift of new life happening all around us. Help us lift up the diverse and unique individuals within our congregation and our community. Each week we will honor a different group of people (i.e. children, women, men, students), hear some of their stories, and find ways we can connect and grow together through St. Luke’s ministries. Join us as we celebrate the gift of resurrection and what it means to be a part of this unique body of Christ!
