One of the jewels in St. Luke's treasure is the magnificent and much-loved Phelps Organ. Purposely built for St. Luke's in 1974 it has been a huge presence here, both physically and musically, being used over the years for both services, recitals and concerts.
Sadly, our beloved organ has aged over the years and is in need of repair. To help facilitate those repairs, St. Luke's will be hosting a silent auction in August to raise money for the organ. Co-Ordinator Marcia Piermattei is looking for donations for the auction. For a list of suggested Silent Auction items CLICK HERE

Join us on Sunday June 17 as we learn more about Haiti and the Solar Power Project from Colorado Haiti Project Director Wynn Walent.
Join us for a reception welcoming our new guest artist Jules Gillen and this very special show titled: Coming Home, My Childhood Altar
About Jules: Once upon a time there was a little girl who liked to cut and paste. She saw things in the sunshine and the shadows that other people never seemed to notice. She bounced all that wonderfulness around inside her head for a bit and out popped magical pieces of art that told her story when words couldn't.
Come meet this very special artist. All Welcome.

Sunday, March 11: "Why do Bad things happen to Good People? with Donna Visocky
As Christians we believe God has a plan for everything. Yet as humans we can experience profound grief, anger, and loss in the face of tragedy. Events may cause us to question how God could let bad things happen to good people. Why do children suffer? Why are some people homeless or ill? Why is there such inequality in the world if God is just? In this session we will explore difficult questions many ask in the face of tragedy and some interesting concepts that might shed some light on our challenges.
