Connect RAGTIME: RAGTIME is not only a powerful portrait of life in turn-of-the-century America, but a relevant tale for today. Based on E.L. Doctorow's distinguished novel, the musical intertwines the stories of three extraordinary families as they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America. Performances are August 16 and 17 at 7:30 p.m. and August 18 at 4:00 p.m. in the Coleman Memorial Gymnasium. Tickets go on sale TODAY, are $10 each and will be available in the Building C Welcome Hall between worship services, online at st.lukes.org/ragtime, and in the church office during normal business hours. *Caution: This show contains difficult subject matter regarding race, gender and violence.

LIVING THE SERIES-GOING DEEPER IN OUR VALUES: “Living the Series” will be offered occasionally throughout the year as an additional component to the sermon series.

The first opportunity begins alongside our “Reflect: Values that Change the World” sermon series. We are diving into our core values (hospitality, community, discipleship, service, acceptance) and discussing how they relate to erasing prejudices, reconciliation, and advocacy. This time together will prepare our hearts for the Ragtime musical (Aug. 16-18). Join us TODAY from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the Attic.
