Who we are

Welcome to St. Luke's Episcopal Church.

We believe that God’s love was made visible in our world through the life Jesus lived and the things Jesus taught. We try to continue his work in our own time and place. Our Saturday evening and Sunday morning worship services and along with our outreach ministries to the community are dedicated to doing just that.

St. Luke's welcoming and accepting community built on inquiry and forgiveness. Passionate about our faith and commitment, we are diverse in our opinions and open to learning from those who may be different from us. Like Anglicans of old, we have a shared worship and ministry that holds us together.

Whether you’re looking for a church home or just curious about what St. Luke's has to offer, you’ll find that all are welcome. We hope you’ll discover that getting involved in our parish community deepens your spiritual journey and provides you with a sense of belonging among God's people. Please check out things here that interest you most, and then come see us in person.

"Passion for God, Compassion for God's people."
