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 of numerous different 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 does great deeds of power and gives his disciples authority over demons. Yet none of this power is unilateral; it all must be received by faith. Jesus asks his disciples to go out without money or supplies, so that they will be dependent on how others receive them. When we are sent from the assembly to witness and to heal, we are asked to be vulnerable, to be dependent on the reception of others. The Spirit always operates in the between: between Jesus and his Abba, between Jesus and us, between you and me, between us and those to whom we are sent.
