How many of you have great memories of camping with family and friends when you were a child? Your journey down memory lane might take you back to the smell of the campfire, the fresh pine scent, the wonder of all that quiet and open space. You likely had deeper and more focused conversations around the campfire (or on a hiking trail), that had a positive impact on your life. For some of us this was the seed that has us hitching up the trailer and heading out on the road today!
We have an opportunity as a parish to provide such an experience for our children attending the Well/Jordan at St. Luke’s. We need your help to build our fund, so that we can provide camperships for those wishing to experience all God’s wonder at Camp Cross! Join me in making sure our youth at St. Luke’s have a chance to make memories, good friends, and grow in God’s love. Mark check donations "Camp Cross Camperships," and either drop them in the offering plate or mail them to the office. Thank you so very much!

A UPDATE LETTER FROM FR. DAVID:
March 27, 2020
Dear Friends in Christ Jesus,
Warm greetings from my home to yours! I hope and trust that you are warm, safe, and staying healthy. We are doing fine as a family, each of us working diligently, resting well, enjoying time with each other. We are sensing in a more attentive way what Jesus promised, that, “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there among them” (Matthew 18:20) – even in the everyday things we do.
So, my newsletter article is already “old news.” Just after the St. Luke’s newsletters were printed, folded and mailed on Wednesday, that same afternoon Governor Brad Little announced the “Stay at Home” order for Idaho citizens. Wednesday was also the last day of preparation before the Washington state “Stay at Home” order set in motion by Governor Jay Inslee. The next day, in keeping with these orders that extend through Holy Week and Easter, and in keeping with other church leaders of various denominations across the country, Bishop Gretchen Rehberg sent out her decision to ask every church to suspend in-person worship through the end of April (the bishop’s letter is included, below). Online worship options and resources will be offered.
DUE TO NEW CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS, PLEASE NOTE NEW OFFICE HOURS:
St. Luke's New Cross will be installed soon. Learn about the Stages of our Cross here.
