St. Luke's Community

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.

To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 1 Corinthians 12:7

We know that we each bring something unique, something different to this community. Sometimes those differences are obvious. Sometimes they take some time and care to discover. We hope to be a community where each people feels safe in all their difference, where each of us knows that our unique ways of being are essential to the Body of Christ.

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

We do our best to remember that each of us has suffered—or might still be suffering—in one way or another. This helps us to always hold one another with grace, patience, and compassion.


And, yes, there is joy here! The joy of really seeing one another and being seen. The joy of really supporting one another and being supported. The joy of gathering around a God who is love.

 

Don't miss a thing!
