With so much going on in our lives, let us remember: "We must not become tired of doing good....we should give special attention to those who are in the family of believers." 
~Galatians 6:9-10

Being a faithful member of one of the music groups here at St. Lucas is much more than just being in a choir. This is truly a ministry. If you have thought about being part of one of the choirs, or sharing your musical talents as a soloist/instrumentalist, now is the time! Contact Lana Richard today at or 314-884-6115.

John and Lana - 20 fingers - witty and ridiculous fun

It’s Fun!

It’s Fabulous!

It’s Free!

Once again staff musician, John Gross, and musical director, Lana Richard, will perform music, quips and antics in the sanctuary at 3 pm on Sunday, February 12th.

This concert will warm you up for the youth Italian Dinner that helps to support their annual Mission Trip in July.

You’ll marvel as John and Lana run their collective twenty fingers up and down keyboards, laugh at their witty as well as ridiculous dialogue and witness a whole different dimension to the serious musicians you see on Sunday morning.

So be sure to come, bring twenty of your closest friends and enjoy an hour of wholesome entertainment! Once again, it is St. Lucas United Church of Christ at it’s best!

Call the office for more info.
