Thinking about visiting?
What if I screw it up? What if no one talks to me? What if everyone talks to me?
It can be hard to visit a new church. Here at St. Luke's, we do our best to really see our visitors—to recognize if you're an introvert and need space, or an extrovert and want some company. Our worship booklet will walk you through every part of the service and even give a little background behind some of the things going on. Our music is meant to be learned together, week after week, as we go along. It's led by a piano, two guitars, a bass, and sometimes even a violin or two.
We invite you to come and worship with us in whatever way brings you joy, whether that means sitting in the back and sneaking out during the last song or shaking everyone's hand at the peace and getting to know folks at coffee hour. Come as you are.
What about my kids?
The Ark, our children's ministry, happens every Sunday during service. Parents, please come downstairs to sign your children in before service.
During The Ark, we will be learning about the Bible and our faith, making good choices, and different ways of welcoming new friends. Children are sung out to their ministry towards the beginning of service and come back for communion.
For children who cannot or prefer not to be part of The Ark, we invite families to make themselves at home in our sanctuary where children are welcome to participate completely in the liturgy, including receiving communion if they want. At the entrance of the sanctuary there is a children's area where children (and adults) have the opportunity to play and work on creative projects during the service. There is also a pack-n-play for babies in need of rest. At St. Luke's, we know that children are often making joyful—and sometimes not so joyful—noises. Either way, they are always welcome during worship.
Release & Respite
Usually, our spiritual practice during Lent is to give something up. In a year when we have already given up so much, I invite us to reframe this practice. I invite us to ask ourselves, “What might I release during this time to invite respite?"
The labyrinth at St. Luke's is a place of prayer, meditation, and reflection for anyone who needs it. Come to the church and follow the signs. It is open to the public.
The First Sunday of Every Month
6:30 – 7:15 p.m.
An evening of quiet and prayerful singing together, led by piano, guitar, and cello, interspersed with poetry, scripture, and silence.
Come As You Are
St. Luke's is a community that comes together around belonging in Christ. When we see one another, we see a person God loves. A person God loves because they are living and loving the way God created them. A person God loves regardless of the ways they've fallen short.
