Worship at St. Luke’s

Our life together begins with worship and prayer.

For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them. Matthew 18:20

Sunday services include time spent in scripture, prayer and the celebration of the Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion. Eucharist means thanksgiving, and is a central part of weekly worship, giving us the opportunity to offer our gratitude and adoration to God by participating in the commemoration of the last supper of Jesus with his disciples. (Morning prayer is said on mornings when a priest is not in residence.)

Rite I Holy Eucharist.
Sunday at 8:00 a.m.

From The Book of Common Prayer, this service is prayed with the traditional language and piety of the Elizabethan era. (Spoken)

Rite II Holy Eucharist.
Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

From The Book of Common Prayer, this service is prayed with more contemporary language and modern inclusive theology. This service includes music, hymns, and instruments for special services.

Children’s Chapel
Part of 10:00 a.m. Service

Children’s Chapel is an interactive and energetic portion of the 10:00 a.m. service designed for children and families who want to join (infant – school age), offering age-appropriate exploration of scripture, prayers, confession and contemporary children’s songs.

Our worship is in the words and traditions we share with Christians around the world and through the ages.

Together, we follow Jesus as we love God with our whole heart, soul and mind and love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-40), and restore each other and all of creation to unity with God in Christ (BCP, p. 855).

Who Is This Jesus

The Bible is of extraordinary importance to Episcopal Worship. We follow a three-year cycle lectionary, shared by all Anglicans and Episcopalians worldwide.

Here are Weekly Readings for coming weeks

If you are attending the 8:00 a.m. or the 10:00 a.m. services, come in through the door into the nave, which is up the stairs on the left when looking at the building from the street. For access without stairs, follow the ramp up the middle of the church building, where you can enter the nave from the reception area.

Our services provide many opportunities for people to participate. Learn more about serving in worship.

Our Anglican tradition recognizes sacraments as “outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace.” (The Book of Common Prayer, p. 857) Holy Baptism and the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) are the two great sacraments given by Christ to his Church.
