Luther Memorial is hosting the moving “Benediction” sculpture for 40 days, until January 26th.
According to Charlie Brouwer, Floyd County resident and sculptor, “Although religions and ways of worship can seem vastly different on the surface, they do have many similar core beliefs. One of them is a desire to have a positive impact on their communities and I hope this project helps emphasize that. Although I began the project well before the pandemic, its positive and uplifting message seems right for our times.”
Join Pastor Monica & Pastor Michelle of St Michael Lutheran for a women’s Zoom Bible study that explores the origins and history of how the Bible came to be, and what God is saying to us through Scripture. This 3-part study features contemporary Biblical scholars sharing their insights on DVD and participants receive a workbook. We begin on January 21st with “Creating,” an 8-week dive into God as Creator. If you ordered a workbook, please pick it up from the LMLC Office. If you would like to participate but did not already notify Pastor Monica, please email her (email@example.com) by January 10th so we can order your materials.
We gather as part of the Blacksburg-Radford ELCA Fellowship for Drive-In Worship Services the fourth Sunday of every month. The Drive-In service is conducted in the parking lot of St. Michael Lutheran Church, 2308 Merrimac Road, Blacksburg. Attendees must remain in their vehicles and observe social-distancing. No restrooms are available during these services. All are welcome!
All teenagers 13-17 are invited to attend the first Blacksburg-Radford ELCA Fellowship Youth Group on Sunday, Jan 31st, from 2-4pm at Luther Memorial in the covered picnic shelter, rain, snow or shine! The Fellowship clergy will fire up the fire pits so we can stay warm to share games with Vicar Alyssa, enjoy snacks and get to know each other, but mostly we want to hear your ideas about how you’d like to have fun and serve Jesus in 2021. Masks are required for this gathering and social distancing will be observed.
