What To Expect

Congregation-A-horz-6-19-16-049The worship of God is central to the life of St. Luke’s. Using our rich Anglican tradition, we come together to celebrate God, who through Jesus, embraces us with his loving, affirming and guiding presence. Then we leave to serve Christ in the world every day.

We find inspiration in our worship service through the ambiance of our surroundings, the power of Biblical texts and thoughtful commentary, all enhanced by the uplifting impact of more traditional melodies and verse. The congregation is actively involved throughout our services – standing to sing, kneeling for prayer and sitting for learning and mediation. You won’t find video screens or a praise band here, which most consider unnecessary, even distractive, in such a sacred setting.

The Liturgy of the Holy Eucharist guides us in our worship and prepares us for a week of thanksgiving and service. The first portion of the service is known as “The Liturgy of the Word” and includes the reading of Scripture, a sermon, The Nicene Creed and prayers. “The Liturgy of the Table” involves the celebrating our life in Jesus Christ through the sacrament of Holy Communion.

Everyone is encouraged to join the celebration at Christ’s table, whether member or visitor. Communion may be received by all baptized Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church.
