COVID-19 Response UPDATED August 17, 2021

Worshiping in body and spirit...

The Service of the Holy Communion is now being offered on Sunday mornings at 10:00am outdoors in the church courtyard. Protocol for participation can be found on the main page of this site.  While during this crisis, we cannot all be together in physical community, we can gather our prayers together, and receive God's grace through the wonders of the internet. To participate online, you can join by clicking the link to ZOOM also found on the main page. If you opt to stay at home but would like to receive Holy Communion, please contact Pastor Jim at 443.402.5828 to make an appointment for visitation or use the email below.

 

If you have need for prayer, please email us at churchontheavenue@gmail.com with your prayer requests.

Activities at St. Luke's

After 18 months apart some community groups have begun to meet again in our facility for which we are grateful. As per city regulations, masks should be worn indoors at all times, and participant numbers are limited by facilitators. Most activities at this time have opted to limit participation to vaccinated persons only and we encourage those choices to be honored without dispute. The Delta variant is highly contagious and while we are committed to a spirit of radical hospitality we will uphold appropriate measures to stop the spread of COVID-19. If you are physically able to be vaccinated we strongly urge you to do so. Not only does the science demonstrate the efficacy of the vaccine, to prevent infection and minimize symptoms for those infected, it also reduces the rate of transmission and protects the vulnerable  individuals and children who cannot be vaccinated at this time. GET VACCINATED, WASH YOUR HANDS, AND WEAR A MASK!

A Word About Giving

The ministry of St. Luke’s Church on the Avenue thrives on the generosity of our community. During this time of social distancing and economic uncertainty, we recognize that financial resources may be stressed from our giving community.

As we cancel activities, and urge folks to stay home, this will inevitably have an effect on the church’s resources, and yet, like everyone, there are still bills to pay. If you have the resources available to you, please consider how you might support the church through this difficult period. We encourage all of our members, and our wider community to utilize our online giving portal to make one-time or regularly scheduled contributions. We trust in the abundance of God, and give thanks for your participation in the vibrance of this community.
