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.

Palm SundayPalm Sunday

9:00am Sunday School for all ages
10:00am Worship with Holy Communion – procession of palms


The first and second readings and psalm are the same this Sunday every year: Christ emptying himself of divine power and protection, willingly becoming vulnerable to those who struck him and put him to death. With Christ we lament his suffering and all human suffering, but expect God’s final vindication. Mark’s passion story begins with an unnamed woman anointing his head, perhaps to proclaim him Messiah, and Jesus saying she has anointed him beforehand for burial. Mark’s Easter story will begin with women going to anoint Jesus for burial, only to find that he has been raised, God’s living Anointed One.
