St. Luke’s is generally a busy and joyful place on Sundays. It’s not just the fine singing of our choirs, and it’s not just the presence of many children. It’s not just the warm welcoming people and fellowship. It is also that the Presence of Christ is with us. We worship Christ who has died, Christ who is risen and Christ who will come again. We honor the Presence of God in Christ in our midst, for as Jesus said, wherever two or three are gathered in my Name, there am I in the midst of them.
Worship is central at St. Luke’s. On Sunday mornings it is traditional, not too formal, but focused around the liturgies and the music of the Episcopal tradition. Hymn singing is second nature! On Sunday evenings our worship is contemporary, often led by a praise band with the liturgy on a screen, sometimes a Eucharistic meal and sometimes a service of musical prayer such as Taize or Choral Evensong.
St. Luke’s is also active throughout the week with fellowship activities, meetings, community activities and formation groups. We are a people who take formation, that is, life-in-Christ, seriously. The sermons of our clergy are practical, Biblical, relevant and passionate. Our Bible studies and adult education offer opportunities to go deeper in our faith. We also understand that part of our formation is service. We are a people who serve others in need and share the love of God in Christ. Just ask someone about the 20+ homes we have built for people in Guatemala!
One of the wonders of our church is that it can be, one minute, the scene of great communal praise and the next minute, almost silent as we listen for “the still small voice” that is never far away. Our worship space makes for a great place to sing, to ponder the Scriptures, to share in the Lord’s Supper and to pray.
Come and try it for yourself and your family. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
