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.

Someone is casting out demons in Jesus’ name who isn’t part of Jesus’ own circle, and the disciples want him stopped. They appeal to Jesus, as Joshua did to Moses about the elders who prophesied without official authorization. Like Moses, Jesus refuses to see this as a threat. Jesus welcomes good being done in his name, even when it is not under his control. The circle we form around Jesus’ word must be able to value good being done in ways we wouldn’t do it, by people we can’t keep tabs on.
