Welcome

Welcome to St. Luke Lutheran Church, Richmond, VA

on the corner of Custis Rd. and Chippenham Parkway between the Forest Avenue and Huguenot Road exits.  We invite you to join us in worship, service and love, and we look forward to welcoming you.  We are a warm and inclusive Lutheran community, with a good spread of young and old alike, and with members from diverse racial groups.  We are a growing church and understand that newcomers are simply friends and members we do not yet know.  We extend a warm welcome to everyone and invite strangers to become our friends. Our morning congregation generally varies between 80 and 120 people, and we have an active Sunday School for all ages.

INTRODUCTION

Jesus protests against human customs being given the weight of divine law, while the essence of God’s law is ignored. True uncleanness comes not from external things, but from the intentions of the human heart. Last week Jesus told us “the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” Now James says God has given us birth by the word of truth. We, having been washed in the word when we were born in the font, return to it every Sunday to ask God to create in us clean hearts.
