We care about each other and our community.
We at St. Luke’s care about each other and those around us. Our clergy and parishioners work together to support each other and the surrounding community.
Our Rector and Lay Pastoral Care Committee work together to help the home-bound and people who are dealing with a life-changing event. We check in with phone calls, notes, and flower deliveries. We visit the home-bound, those in the hospital and rehabilitation centers, and those in hospice care.
Our Rector and Lay Eucharistic Ministers take communion to home-bound parishioners.
Our parishioners work together to prepare receptions for funerals when needed, provide rides to help the elderly attend church services and doctor visits, and cook and deliver meals for those who are experiencing turbulent times, whether it’s the arrival of a new baby, a health emergency, or the loss of a loved one.
We offer regular opportunities for Christian education and growth through prayer groups, religious education programs, and retreats. We have had groups small and large travel together locally and internationally to expand on their collective spiritual experiences.
Daughters of the King
The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. We have made a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as Lord of our lives. We are an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate.
Baptism is the sacrament that makes us Christians, and preparation for baptism is the beginning of our formation in Christ. At St. Luke's we believe that the whole congregation shares in these responsibilities. We welcome adults who have not been baptized and parents who seek baptism for their child. We also welcome those who wish to reaffirm their baptismal vows.
All baptized persons of any age are welcome to receive Communion at St. Luke's.
Confirmation is making a mature public affirmation of faith and is a rite of membership into the Episcopal Church. We welcome all who wish to be confirmed and have programs to provide confirmation support and education for teens and adults.
Couples contemplating marriage in the Church should notify the Rector of their plans as early as possible before the wedding. The Rector will expect to meet with them at least three times before the wedding.
If you or a member of your family are hospitalized or home-bound and would like to receive the Laying of Hands and Anointing for Healing, the Sacrament of Holy Communion, or simply a visit from the clergy, please contact us.
When a person is believed to be near death, friends or immediate family should notify our rector.
If you are interested in learning more about our ministries, please contact our Rector.
