St. Luke’s is a church where compassion is more than a feeling. We are one family in Jesus, putting faith to work in love. Our clergy are available to talk and pray with you when you are experiencing grief, a difficult family situation, an illness, or when you are struggling with another challenging life event. In addition to our pastors, St. Luke’s  equips and empowers lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.  If you would like to talk to a pastor or Stephen Minister, call the main church number at 713-622-5710 and we will get you in touch with a member of our clergy.

Hospital

Seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, St. Luke’s staff ministers and lay ministers bring the love of Christ to church members, or their friends and family who are hospitalized in the Houston area. If you would like to help, or if you know or someone who would appreciate a ministerial visit, contact Laurie Kereluk, 713-402-5086

Divorce

Divorce Care is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Different topics will help you face challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. This 13-week workshop meets on Tuesdays from 6:30–8 p.m. Information, call Shelley Quillin at 713-402-5033.

Grief

Our “TLC” ministry strives to call every member of the church who has been recently discharged from the hospital or who has lost a loved one. The calls offer love, hope and support. To help or let us know someone who needs a call, contact Laurie Kereluk at 713-402-5086.

Reverend Bill Denham leads a 12-week Christian based GriefShare group on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30. This is for people who are grieving the death of a loved one.  You do not have to be a church member to attend.  A $20 donation is suggested to defray program costs.  Childcare is available with reservation.  To learn when the next group will begin, or to register, contact  Shelley Quillin at 713-402-5033.
