Welcome to St. Luke’s! Although we’re not meeting in person right now, there are so many ways you can get plugged into the life of the church. Traditional and Contemporary worship services are LiveStreamed every Sunday. There are online small groups that meet through Zoom, and there are even opportunities to serve the community for those who are able to help! For children, we have weekly at-home Sunday school lessons and music videos. Students are meeting in Zoom groups and creating their own devotionals for social media. We have also created special pages for Music to Inspire and Daily Devotionals. We hope St. Luke’s will become part of your family while we are social distancing, and we can’t wait to meet you in person!

BABIES – PRE-K
We offer caring and safe childcare for children ages 2 months – Pre-K while parents/guardians attend any of our morning worship services and/or Sunday School. Our childcare team focuses on meeting the needs of your child in a caring and loving way so even our youngest ones will be introduced to Jesus’s love through their words and actions. Each caregiver is well-trained and certified in CPR, First Aid, AED and SIDS. Our staff also participates in continuing education training in developmentally appropriate practices, child development, safety, and faith formation.
Sunday School is offered for children beginning at age 2 from 9:45 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. We desire all children to be surrounded by a faith-filled community of caring adults and friends.
K – 5TH GRADE
Care is available all morning for children 2 years old – Pre-K. Your child is also welcome to worship with you and your family during this traditional worship service.
Contemporary Worship is a family-friendly service with a special children’s message given by our Director of Children’s Ministries. Childcare is available for children ages 2 months – Pre-K.
Kindergarten – 5th Grade Sunday School from 9:45-10:45 a.m has amazing adult leaders who help children grow in their faith through Bible stories, prayer and meaningful activities that connect Bible times with their lives today.
Children’s Church is our newest worship experience for kindergartners – 3rd graders at 11:00 a.m. Through praise music, interactive prayer, Bible teaching and engaging activities, children learn more about themselves, their faith, and how we can live and love like Jesus. Our aim is to meet families where they are: during Children’s Church hour, parents may grow in their own faith by attending traditional worship, Starting Point classes or other small groups.
6TH – 12TH GRADE
For students in 6th-12th grade, Student Ministries offers a unique worship experience in their own building beginning at 9:45 a.m. We are committed to loving and serving youth and their families as they navigate the teen years and explore their faith in Christ. Learn more.
READY FOR MORE?
If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to join St. Luke’s and participate in passionate worship, faith-forming relationships and ministries that make a difference.
Step 1: Coffee with the Pastor
Coffee with the Pastor is a casual group gathering with Dr. Tom Pace, Senior Pastor at St. Luke’s. During Coffee with the Pastor, he will share his spiritual journey and invite you to examine your own. You will learn more about St. Luke’s structure and vision and discover how to be a part of the community and mission of the church. Coffee with the Pastor is offered throughout the year. Register by selecting a date below.
Step 2: Joining Service
Immediately following Coffee with the Pastor, those who are ready to join St. Luke’s in membership are invited to do so. You may be transferring from another United Methodist church, coming from another denomination, or be joining a church for the first time.
What if you are not ready to join? Membership is merely an option. Continue to visit as long as you wish.
Step 3: Starting Point
After you join the church, we encourage you to attend Starting Point, a three-week class designed to jumpstart your spiritual journey, transforming your heart, your relationships, and our city. It will feature teaching by Dr. Pace, opportunities for reflection and discussion, and practical ways to plug into the various ministries of St. Luke’s. This 3-part class is led by church members and will be offered several times throughout the year on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. For more information, please contact Rebecca Alsup.
Step 4: Get Connected
We encourage you to be faithful in your Sunday worship participation and to find at least one additional way to engage with St. Luke’s. Participation in a small group or service opportunity is a great way to begin.
