Papa’s World – Saint Lukes Lutheran Church – OIB – now our home church.

Saint Lukes Lutheran Church – Route 17 – Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

Church has been a big part of our entire married life – I converted from Catholic to Lutheran.

Sherry was born and raised in the Lutheran Church in Mt. Jewett Pa.

We have belonged to three different Lutheran churches during our almost 40 years of marriage.

And now we have found our fourth home in the Lutheran – ELCA – in Ocean Isle Beach – N.C.

The first thing we saw was the circular Stain Glassed Window over the Altar!

Our church in Sterling – Community Lutheran Church – had this same window – we felt at home.

Space – this is a larger church – members – about the same.

While we had a lot of children in Sterling – here there are hardly any.

The congregation here is older – retirees from the North.

We were sponsored by Diane and Steve – and found out he had worked in the White House –

Under three presidents!

The church offices and where we pick up our mail from the church.
The Narthex and Sanctuary – one Sunday service at 10:00 AM.
The social center – Kitchen – Bathrooms and Dining hall.

What is nice for us is that it is only four miles from our house.

And I am getting more accustomed to the later service at 10:00 am. instead of 8:15 am.

Thank you for reading Papa’s World – my next blog is on the surprise we found behind the church.

A COLUMBARIUM for members of the church!
