We’re a little late to the party, the Sun Current Readers’ Choice Awards Voting has begun:
Thank you to all who have voted for St. Luke’s and those who will be voting. You can do so once per day. St. Luke’s won the award last year 2023, and many previous years. It is a wonderful recognition to have members and friends who take the time to vote.
I feel blessed to attend worship at St. Luke’s and enjoy the music of the Choir, Bells, and Jubilee. Thank you to all of our singers and musicians and especially to our Music Leadership:
Greg Anderson – Jubilee Director
Patrick Lair – Choir Director
Lori Murray – Organist and Choir Accompanist
Alanna Teragawa – Bell Director
Also a thank you to all who serve in worship. I count every person who helps worship be pleasing to God and all who attend, inside and outside of the sanctuary: Lectors, Worship Assistants, Ushers, Altar Guild, Sound-Video-Camera Techs, Greeters, Welcome Desk, Treat Providers, Hosts, Communion Assistants, Snow Shovelers, Acolytes, Office Staff, and the Prayground/Children Church Leaders.
Furthermore, to all who attend, lifting their voice in praise and prayers, welcoming one another and most importantly guests.
Thank you especially to those who remember the 2-Minute Rule. Following worship, please take the first 2 minutes to greet someone you don’t know. It makes all the difference. And you can still meet up with your friend, even better introduce them to the guest.
And for those of you online, may you do the same.
Last, but not least, may worship help you serve as you go out into the world. Hold St. Luke’s in your prayers. Share God’s love, Jesus’ peace, and the Holy Spirit’s joy with all you meet.
Take all of this one step further and invite someone to join you this Sunday or in the weeks ahead. You can tell them, “Come to the best place of worship in Bloomington that has the best choir and music program and the best Vacation Bible School. Thank you Emily Schoeller, Director of Children and Family Ministry.
“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker – Psalm 95:1-6
