A Message from our Centennial Pastor
Dr. Marvin S. Hall, Sr.

 
We greet you in the name of our Lord and Risen Savior.   This past year has been a time of adjustment in the way we lived, traveled, and worshipped.  And just when we thought we were about to round the curve on this pandemic, we began to experience a resurgence.

Greater St. Luke being a House of Worship, as well as some of our sister churches of all faiths, have one again had to shift the way worship, funerals, weddings, and other assemblies are held in order to insure the safety and well being of our church family. 

With the aggressive efforts of our national leaders, a vaccine campaign was implemented and a vast portion of our citizens received the vaccine.  We believe members of our church family have also been the recipient of the vaccine.  But we are also aware that there is a large percentage who have not taken advantage of the vaccine.

In May, we opened our church to in-person worship without the requirement for social distance seating.  Even though the mask mandate has been lifted in the state, the increase of the Delta and Lambda variants of COVID-19 have made it necessary for us to yet again return to the requirement of social distancing and wearing a mask when inside any of our facilities.

Because we care, we strongly encourage you to practice your due deligence of wearing your mask, washing your hands, and social distancing whenever and wherever possible.   The CDC has alerted us that the Delta and Lambda variants of COVID-19 is far more transmittable than the virus of 2020.

We will continue to stream live on our website and Facebook Live social media platforms, but also look forward to you joining us for in-person Sunday School, Bible Study, and Worship Celebration.  Our Bible Study will resume in September.  

We will closely monitor the numbers reported by the Regional Health Department, the mayor's office, and West Tennessee Healthcare as they impact our community.  Should we feel the risk outweighs benefit of in-person worship, we will excercise cauting and adjust accordingly.    

God bless each of you and may His Favor continue to be upon you.
