altThank you for visiting.  Wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome here.  Many have found a spiritual home and a family of faith at St. Luke’s over the years, and if this is what you are looking for—welcome home.  If you are just passing through, or need to spend some quiet time with God—you are welcome here.  This is a place of healing, rest, and transformation as well as a community of engagement, learning, and service.  You are welcome here— Come and pray, sing, laugh, ponder, love, and serve with this community, and see what God can do.  This website has general information about the church, worship, our After School Academy, sermons, and current activities.  We hope you’ll find it useful and uplifting!  Please check back often, and contact us if you have questions that aren’t answered here or simply want to know more. We look forward to meeting you in person!

 

 

 

Comments from First-Time Visitors to St. Luke’s:

I was pleasantly surprised that the people at St. Luke’s are so down to earth and friendly.”

-“I didn’t receive a ‘hard sell’ from the pastor or parishioners—their welcome was sincere and open-ended.”

-“When we first attended we were acknowledged and gently welcomed, but not singled out, mobbed or made to feel uncomfortable.”

-“I found what I was looking for at St. Luke’s—Christians who practice what they preach, spiritual healing and growth, honest acceptance…  This church is unpretentious and focused on actions and not rhetoric.”
