for this Sunday,

November 27, 2022

Isaiah 2:1-5

Psalm 122

Romans 13:8-14

Matthew 24:29-44

Sunday is the beginning of Advent!


The period of preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas and also of preparation

for the Second Coming of Christ. 

St Luke’s has two different devotionals by the Welcome Board to use

as resources during the season. 

For individual devotions, there is the Trinity School of Ministry Advent Devotional.  For family-oriented devotions, the Jesse Tree Devotional

is a great resource.

Small Groups at St. Luke's

Last chance! If you are interested in joining a small group in 2023, we need your info! 


Fill out a form either online [ CLICK HERE ] or in-person on Sunday. 

We’ll be spending the first two weeks in December sorting out the groups so we can launch them in January.


We want to offer the people at St Luke’s opportunities to connect with each other and develop genuine, vulnerable community.  It is that kind of a setting where we can know others and be known and grow more in our walk with Jesus.



Small groups would consist of roughly 8-12 people, organized based on a combination of region and availability. When possible, groups will include some diversity in age/stage of life so that members can hear from other perspectives. 


Groups would use some of their time to simply spend time together and get to know each other. The groups would also be supplied with topics or content for conversation.  This could be anything from the sermon from the prior week to texts for the upcoming Sunday, to chapters from a book (such as The Common Rule).

Women's Group

Tuesday Night Women’s Group will begin a new study on the book of Ephesians beginning Tuesday, November 29th in the Common Room. 

They will be using ‘Ephesians: A Biblical Study” by Joyce Meyers as part of the study. 

Contact Linda Hartman for more information.

Ray of Hope Update

Fall greetings from Fenny Joy - missionary to Ukrainian/Russian speakers and serving in membercare and refugee care in Krakow, Poland. 

I am so thankful that after three weeks in Poland the Lord provided a permanent place to live. It is an amazing testimony of God's goodness!  Next week I start serving with membercare and at two refugee centers. It is an exciting time! You can read all about it in my latest newsletter accessible through this link

This newsletter also contains my ministry plan and budget for 2023, as well as the various ways to give through my own missions organization, YWAM. 

Thank you for your friendship, prayers and support. I am grateful for partners like you that make it possible for me to serve the victims in this war with the love and compassion of Jesus.
