Weekly Lesson: Esther-Boldness and Strength

Mental Health Discussion in Children and Youth begins on Sunday (2/26) and continues on March 5 and March 12: This will be from 10-11 a.m. and take place in the Faith Formation Office (on the second floor of the church near the Sunday School classrooms). If there are a large amount of people that attend for the size of the room, the discussion will move next door to rooms 101-102 and the Sunday School class that meets in there will meet in the Faith Formation Office. Sign your kids into Sunday School and then head upstairs for our discussion.
March 11 from 10 am-12 pm: Work side-by-side with others from the community at A Wider Circle (https://awidercircle.org/) as we sort donations of household goods (household furniture, linens, kitchen items, toys, and professional clothing and accessories) and stock the showroom for clients of A Wider Circle. The size of our group is limited so please RSVP to Melissa no later than March 3. Proof of vaccination is required at A Wider Circle and masks are encouraged, though not currently required.
On March 19, the congregation will be creating care packages for residents in Washington Highlands, a community in Southeast D.C. that has been hard hit from the economic fallout of the pandemic. The following items are needed for the care packages (all items should be full-sized): laundry detergent (if liquid, containers need to be 64 oz or smaller), dish soap, all-purpose disinfectant cleaner, and toothpaste. Items can be placed in the blue bins in the Fireside Room and/or monetary donations for the project can be given to Congregation Service Projects line on www.saintlukegive.us. Thank you for caring.
Worship at 8:45 a.m. or 11:15 a.m. and then class is from 10-11 a.m. each Sunday. Youth meet in the Fireside Room for class while their parents are invited to attend adult faith formation classes or gather on the patio or Great Hall (depending on the weather) with other parents and people from Saint Luke.

Mask guidance varies by the health situation and is determined by the Saint Luke Covid-19 Advisory Committee. Currently, masks are strongly encouraged, though not required, inside the church building and are optional outside. Signs are posted at the entryway doors regarding masking and information is also available on the Saint Luke listserv. As always, in order to keep everyone healthy, those who are ill should stay home and use the online lessons that will be posted on this webpage each week. In addition, information about upcoming events will be posted on this page.
The youth are expected to complete nine worship notes each year. Find the link to the notes below. Send your completed notes to Pastor Z via email. See the contact us button at the bottom of the page for his email address.
Gracious God, we give you thanks that you have given us your word through the writings of the faithful. We are grateful for your people who handed down their faith from generation to generation so that we may learn from them and about them. Amen
