Welcome to St. Luke Lutheran Church, Richmond, VA
located at the corner of Custis Road and Chippenham Parkway between the Forest Hill Avenue and Huguenot Road exits. We invite you to join us in worship, service, and love, and we look forward to welcoming you at 10:00 am on Sunday morning. We are a warm and inclusive Lutheran community, and worshipers are encouraged to dress comfortably (masks optional) and participate as they are able in the liturgically based service. We are a growing church and understand that newcomers are simply friends and members we do not yet know. Hope to see you soon!
If you are not ready or able to return to in-person worship yet, we continue to offer an online option for the Worship Service “Live” on our Facebook page at 10:00am Sundays for your convenience. The whole service will be printed in the Bulletin (available on this website), and you will not need any other book. The recorded services will be available later in the day, on this website (below) and on YouTube.

Because We Can . . .
Many thanks to all who gave so generously to our Lenten Challenge to raise $5,000 for the suffering people of the Eastern European crisis centered in Ukraine and the countries to the west of it bearing the brunt of the refugee crisis. We actually raised just over $10,000, which has been sent via our partner churches in the crisis area, without any deductions, for aid in this disaster. The Lutheran (ELCA) Appeal is ongoing, and you may still give to it via our “Donate” button.
As a church, our focus is changing now to one young person in Zambia who needs our help. He is in the 8th grade at school, and we have been supporting him through a monthly sponsorship plan, to enable him to attend school, and therefore to have a future. He is not forced to go out and work to support his family because of our gifts, which not only support him, but indirectly, his family also, who are part of this community program. He is doing well, with good grades, but our giving has declined because of Covid-19. Different groups in the church used to sponsor one month ($28) each, and the groups have not been meeting through the pandemic, so our giving has faltered, but his family’s needs have not changed or come to an end. “Let us not become weary in doing good” (Gal. 6v.9) We are asking for individuals to take up the slack and pledge just one month ($28) to help Paul finish his education and be able to support his family in time, for as long as they need it. Use our “Donate” button and select the “Help Paul” tile to direct a gift. Thank you.

Sixth Sunday of Easter
Visions abound in the readings for the sixth Sunday of Easter. Paul has a vision about what to do. John has a vision of what will be. Jesus provides visions of peace that surpasses human understanding and power beyond human imagination.
