Finding Your Way at St. Luke’s

Sunday is traditionally when Episcopalians gather for worship.

The principal weekly worship service is the Holy Eucharist, also known as the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, or Mass. For the first-time visitor this worship may be exhilarating, and it may be confusing. Services may involve standing, sitting, kneeling, sung or spoken responses, and other participatory elements that may not always be easy to follow. Visitors will find that “regulars” to St. Luke’s services are more than happy to help. Once the service is learned, this sameness from week to week gives worship a rhythm that becomes comforting and familiar to worshipers. It is also a blessing to know that we are praying similar prayers with others around the world, and throughout the ages

If you are attending the 8:00 a.m. or the 10:00 a.m. services, come in through the door into the main nave, which is up the stairs on the left when looking at the building from the street. If unable to use stairs, please use the ramp in the center of the building which will lead you into the reception area. The nave is to the left once you are in the church and the Parish Hall is to the right. A restroom can be found just outside the Parish Hall doors, or at  the top of the stairs when you enter through the blue doors to the right, which is a more direct route to the Parish Hall.

For each service, participants are offered a bulletin that provides much of the scriptures, prayers and hymns used during the service, limiting the need to juggle prayer books and hymnals during worship. At St. Luke’s you will always find a helpful person sitting close by who is happy to help you follow the service.

St. Luke’s building is also home to Family Promise of North Idaho. To reach the offices, enter the blue doors to the right of the building (as you look at the building from the street). Take the stairs down to the offices.
