Community-Wide Activities

Community Engagement

St. Luke’s engages and partners with area churches and organizations for shared fellowship, outreach and worship.

Recent activities include a progressive parking lot party with local churches for which St. Luke’s hosted a petting zoo; a shared clergy letter to people across the region in the Coeur d’Alene Press; a shared clergy-led prayer service at Kootenai Health; and the shared Longest Night/Blue Christmas service.

In 2021 and 2022 we co-sponsored a documentary and discussion series with the Human Rights Education Institute and The Museum of North Idaho. In 2022, with a grant from the Idaho Community Foundation’s Project Neighborly, we were able to offer it to a wider community.


St. Luke’s holds its noonday prayer on Wednesdays at the Fort Sherman Chapel at 332 Hubbard St. in Coeur d’Alene. Following that service, members of the congregation visit the North Idaho College campus to initiate conversations and offer friendly support.

On Tuesday Evenings, St. Luke’s will offer a program called “Being With.” This is a wonderful program of open discussion and mutual discovery designed and used in the Church of England. It is a great space for people who are exploring faith, or who have needed to step away from an overly strict faith tradition and are looking for ways to rediscover their faith in fresh ways.
