FAQ: Why Doesn't God Just Show Up and Prove that He's Real?
Pastor Steve will introduce our new sermon series: FAQ: Ask And It Will Be Given You - Answering Frequently Asked Questions.
The only basis for an eternal relationship with God is faith, not proof. Therefore, while God has proven himself to us in many ways, God has purposely designed it so that we in the end must embrace him by faith alone.

FAQ: What Good Is There In Organized Religion?
Pastor Steve continues our sermon series: FAQ: Ask And It Will Be Given You - Answering Frequently Asked Questions.
We need community to survive physically and spiritually. It is not good for us to be alone and so God created us and recreated us to live in vital relationships with others. To not be a part of a Christian Church is to be a spiritual orphan.

FAQ: What Does Jesus Say About Marriage and Divorce?
We welcome Pastor Gary Sandberg back to St. Luke as we continue our sermon series: FAQ: Ask And It Will Be Given You - Answering Frequently Asked Questions.
Jesus does not shy away from calling out people concerning divorce. But, in Mark we see the these strict comments tempered by the compassion that he shows to children. We need to encourage each other to work to keep marriages strong, including our own.

FAQ: Are Not All Religions the Same?
Pastor Steve concludes our sermon series, "FAQ: Ask And It Will Be Given You - Answering Frequently Asked Questions" by addressing the questions, "Are Not All Religions the Same?" Some of the similarities among the religions will be acknowledged as a way of pointing to the reality and omnipresence of God. Christianity will be shown to be unique among all the religions because we are saved by grace.
We encourage you to lay down whatever other “religion” you are holding unto to justify yourself and rest in God’s Amazing Grace centered in Jesus Christ.
