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

Can we pray the way Bartimaeus prays? People try to hush him up because by addressing Jesus as “Son of David” he is making a politically dangerous claim that Jesus is the rightful king. Could our prayers ever be heard as a threat to unjust powers-that-be? Bartimaeus won’t give up or go away quietly, but repeats his call for help more loudly. Do we ask so boldly? And are our prayers an honest answer to Jesus’ question, “What do you want me to do for you?”
