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

Matthew narrates one of Jesus’ controversial parables, in which Jesus says the reign of God is like workers who get paid the same no matter when they start. When God changes his mind about punishing Nineveh for their evil ways, Jonah is angry. Yet God is gracious and merciful, abounding in steadfast love. In baptism we receive the grace of God that is freely given to all. As Luther wrote, in the presence of God’s mercy we are all beggars.
