How We Worship

A St. Luke’s parishioner has described us as “a traditional service in a non-traditional setting”. Participation is an essential ingredient. Many volunteer to be lesson readers, to lead the psalms, or Prayers of the People.

Our music is wide-ranging: we use four Episcopal Hymnals which draw from the black history, women’s issues and human rights along with the tried and true.

From the moment a person is greeted at the door until goodbyes are said as one leaves for home there is an effort to make one feel included. The Passing of the Peace is an exuberant visit to every member of the congregation with handshakes and hugs. Every effort is made for us to have contact with everyone attending service both able bodied and disabled. This is our time also to admire toddlers and babies, of course. We don’t sit down until we have greeted every person in the room.

In the recent past, we have had an early service that was focused on a 12-step liturgy. This program although not large did reach an important segment of our worshipping community.

St. Luke’s very diverse congregation are fond of the sense of communion that we have grown into. We aim to keep it.

*Due to Covid-19, we are currently worshiping as a community through Zoom, and striving to honor our worshiping practices through screens. To learn more, visit our ‘Get Involved’ section of our website.

 

Worship Schedule

We have launched our ‘fall program year’ at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. A program year provides more opportunities for children, youth and adults to come together as a community both in-person and virtually; as we grow together as The Body of Christ, walk in The Way of Love and build The Kingdom of God at our own doorsteps.

Sunday. 9am: Worship will be held in-person for those who do not have access to technology or who would prefer to worship in person. At this time, our worship offering is Morning Prayer. Masks are required to be worn and distance must be maintained. Upon arrival, you must sign-in. No singing will take place at this service.
Sunday. 10:15-11am: “Chapel Chat with Chris” Join us online for a virtual formation (Education & Reflection opportunity) with Rev. Chris. This series will be influenced by Rev. Chris’s work with Baptized for Life. Curious on what that means? —join us in our Virtual Chapel.
Sunday. 11:30am: Morning Prayer with Music will continue to take place in our virtual Chapel. Attached to this email, you can find a digital bulletin that you might choose to print, or to have pulled up on another device during our worship service. Please note that our new format also provides ‘slides’ to be shared on your screen where you can follow along with our service as we go.
