Come Walk With Us
Welcome to St. Luke’s!
If you are looking for a church home, St. Luke’s provides you the opportunity to participate in passionate worship, faith-forming relationships, and ministries that make a difference.
Path To Membership
First Step: Coffee with the Pastor
Are you interested in learning more about St. Luke’s United Methodist Church? Coffee with the Pastor (CWP) is a casual group gathering with Dr. Tom Pace, senior pastor at St. Luke’s. CWP is offered 10 times a year, generally on the first Sunday of the month, for an hour and a half. Dr. Pace will share stories from his personal spiritual journey and discuss the meaning of our vows of membership. View dates and Register
Second Step: Joining Sunday
After you attend Coffee with the Pastor, we welcome you to join on any Joining Sunday that follows, at the closing of the worship service of your choice. Joining Sundays are usually the second Sunday of the month.
Third Step: Discipleship Class
We invite you to connect more deeply at St. Luke’s by participating in the Inside-Out Habits small group experience. Here, you’ll be equipped in and engaged with the Five Habits that make up life at St. Luke’s, and connect with others in a powerful way. This six-week experience is led by church members, and meets once a week for an hour and a half. You will complete the experience with a renewed sense of membership at St. Luke’s that we trust will enrich your connection to Christ and the life of the church.
Fourth Step: Get Connected
Our desire is to provide you resources, guidance and support so that you will become an active member of St. Luke’s. To learn more on how to get connected, visit our Connecting Ministry.

Absolutely! Many people that join our church are from other faiths. If you have been baptized, we accept your baptism and your belief in Jesus Christ and warmly welcome you.
For adults who have not been baptized, but would like to join St. Luke's, we'd love to help you take this important step. If you confess Jesus Christ as your Savior, put your whole trust in his grace, and desire to serve Him as your Lord as part of the church, we invite you to be part of a brief ceremony of this outward sign of God's inward love for us. Although it is so affirming to all of us when adults step forward during the service to accept the gift of God's grace, if you prefer, we can arrange for your baptism with a smaller group at another time in the Chapel (contact Kelly Grimes at 713-402-5015).
We invite you to attend one of our Coffee with the Pastor gatherings to learn more about St. Luke's mission and vision. Register for an upcoming class.
Do you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and pledge your allegiance to his kingdom?
Do you profess the Christian faith as contained in the Old and New Testaments as your rule of faith and practice?
Will you, according to the grace given you, live a Christian life?
If you make these vows your solemn promise, then you are eligible to take this final vow of membership to St. Luke's United Methodist Church:
Will you be loyal to St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, and uphold it with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness?
