ST. LUKE LUTHERAN CHURCH, LCMS (129 Railroad Street) Wheaton, Kansas 66521

THE REV. TERRY L DEGIOVANNI, PASTOR

August 11 – Pentecost IX (Proper 14C) – “We don’t have money to support this embryonic life. We don’t have stamina enough to maintain this elderly life. We need abortion and assisted suicide.” But He who sends mouths also sends meat (Luke 12:24, 28). Even with limitless resources, we couldn’t preserve a single sparrow. Only God can sustain or cease life. If He invites us into the privilege of providing for somebody, He Himself will ensure neither they nor we go without.

Please take note of the quilt displayed in the front pews of the sanctuary. This quilt was made by the LWML at their Fall meeting in Manhattan, last Fall, and is being displayed at all the Lutheran churches in our Zone. At the Fall meeting here in Wheaton on September 21st, it will be decided who should become the recipient of the quilt.

The LWML is continuing to support the Crisis Center in Manhattan. The item needed for donation at this time is large/contractor size trash bags. As persons leave the crisis center, their belongings (clothing, toiletries, bedding) are put in a large bag to travel to the next living quarters. Please put your donation in the blue tub in the basement entryway.

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.
