I baptize you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit. -Mark 1:8

The Sacrament of Baptism expresses God’s love and grace, which is free to all. In the baptism service, St. Luke’s vows to embrace your children and be with them in their faith walk. Parents are required to attend a one-hour Baptism Class prior to their child’s baptism. The class is offered once each month (except December), on a Sunday morning.

Topics discussed in the class are:

  • Methodist perspective on baptism
  • Practical tips and ideas for how to raise your child in the Christian faith
  • Detailed overview of the Baptismal service
  • Logistics about the day of your child’s Baptism
  • Each class also offers an opportunity to meet other parents and learn about opportunities to get involved at St. Luke’s.

To schedule your child’s baptism, or to arrange to attend the required baptism class, please contact Noralyn Carpenter at 713-402-5028.  It is best to plan as far in advance as possible.

To inquire about baptism for an adult, please contact any of our clergy.

At St. Luke’s, our focus when performing a funeral or memorial service is to use the resurrection of Jesus Christ as comfort and support while celebrating the life of the deceased. In the company of believers and through the uplifting strength of worship, family and friends can find the renewal of Christian faith, hope and love to sustain them in time of grief.

The distinction between a funeral service and a memorial service is whether the casket will be present.

  • A funeral is conducted with the casket present
  • It is not present during a memorial service

In either type of service, the emphasis is in providing an uplifting celebration of God’s power over death through scripture readings, prayer and music.

Important Note Times for services should not be set prior to confirmation of the availability of church facilities and the assignment of a minister and organist. To make arrangements or to inquire further about the services, please contact Karen Smith at 713-402-5086.
