PARISH LIFE

St. Luke's is brimming with energy for worship, prayer, education, fellowship, service, and care. With opportunities to draw nearer to God by learning, in serving on Sunday mornings, or entering into one of our in-house ministries, you'll never find yourself without something to do!

ADULT EDUCATION

Every Sunday morning at 9:00, between worship services, the Adult Bible Study meets. Working through N.T. Wright's book about the Gospel of Mark, this group engages with good questions about scripture and context without judgment. Books are available in the church office.

CHILDREN'S EDUCATION

As the 10:00 Sunday morning service gets started, the children of St. Luke's gather in Jubilee Hall to focus on their own faith formation. Led by a wonderful team of volunteers, the children engage with scripture and form good theological questions. These questions are then brought back into the worship service and presented to the priest in front of the congregation. 

BOOK STUDIES

On occasion, St. Luke's offers a seasonal Book Study. Advent 2022 saw five sessions on Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul by John Philip Newell. Our next Book Study will take place over the summer. Stay tuned!

Worship Leadership Opportunities

ALTAR ICON

ALTAR GUILD

The Altar Guild is a group of people who tend to the altar.  Preparation before worship and cleanup afterward are the primary tasks of this group. This work is holy in itself, as much of the work is for the care of the holy sacraments of bread and wine. 

USHER ICON

USHERS

The ushers aim to make the movement of worship easy to understand. The ushers greet those who come in for worship, offering a bulletin. They direct traffic when it is time for communion and take care of cleaning up the pews after the service has ended.

ACOLYTE ICON

READERS AND ACOLYTES

 Readers ensure that the Word of God is delivered clearly to the congregation. This includes the two reading from each testament and leading the psalm. Acolytes assist the priest and deacon at the altar and lead the processionals at the beginning and end of the service.

DAUGHTERS OF THE KING

Daughters of the King is a group of women who dedicate themselves to prayer, service and evangelism. They work to make Jesus known to others as they themselves grow in faith. They meet Thursdays at 1:00pm in Onderdonk Hall. 

CARING HANDS

When it comes to receptions, pot-luck lunches, catered dinners, or any other food and hospitality-related special events, Caring Hands has it covered. This group stays connected and ready to serve however the church needs. 

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

Open time for prayer shawl knitting/crochet is the afternoon of the first Wednesday of the month from 1:00 to 3:00 in Onderdonk Hall.
Join us or create from home.
The intention of the prayer shawl ministry is to have a supply of items that have been blessed for distribution to friends and family in need of the comfort of a hand knit/crochet item. We would gladly accept donations of yarn for these projects.

PRAYER GROUP

St. Luke's prayer group meets every Monday morning at 9:00. Together, they pray for the state of the world and any specific needs, the state of the parish, and for one another in their own needs. All are welcome around the table to share in petition and thanksgiving.

Ministries

Lasagna building

Meals for the Soul

When widowed members of the congregation approached a former chef and requested that she teach them to cook for one, a new ministry began to take shape. With support from the clergy, the members began cooking and packaging single-serving meals for anyone who needs one or two plates to supplement their weekly food needs. They now serve dozens of portions for a small donation, or free.

 

Meals for the Soul meets in the parish kitchen every other Thursday at noon. See the parish calendar for those dates.
