From Series: “Unstuck (Encounter Contemporary)

During these five weeks, we will look together at what the Bible says about how to discern God’s direction for us, and how to move forward toward that vision. Each week we will invite you to consider some personal questions to clarify your thoughts and take some steps on your journey. This journal is a tool to help you collect your ideas during the week, and build your resolve to take some small steps to get moving. Most of the work to get unstuck is not a collective experience, so each of us will need to do our own work with God during the week to begin to move forward.

The Encounter Band

Led by Faith Ayers, the Encounter Band sets just the right tone each Sunday with their contemporary music. From popular, current Christian songs to traditional hymns with a modern twist, the band plays it all.

Experience

The comfortable venue and friendliness of the members creates a small church feel within the larger walls of St. Luke’s. Children dance in the aisles along with the music, friends enjoy coffee and donuts together, candles are lit during prayers and a joyful noise is made unto the Lord.
