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 Karen Smith at 713-402-5086.  It is best to plan as far in advance as possible. To inquire about baptism for an adult, please contact any of our clergy.

Memorial Services and Funerals

In the company of believers and through the strength of worship, family and friends can find the renewal of Christian faith, hope and love that will sustain them in their time of grief. The focus of memorial services and funerals at St. Luke’s is to provide an uplifting celebration of God’s power over death through scripture readings, prayer and music.

To make arrangements or for more information on planning a memorial service or funeral, please contact Karen Smith at 713-402-5086 or [email protected].

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.” – John 14:27
