Welcome from our pastor
St. Luke Presbyterian, like most churches in the 21st century, is beginning to redefine the way we worship. Our hope is to bring the relevance of the Church into people’s lives as we practice together the teachings of Christ. When one places practice before belief, lives transform but not without the need to share our experiences, our joys, and our sorrow in a community of trust and acceptance.
We hope you will visit. Come as you are, off the hiking trail or dressed to the nines. We are informal and dedicated to practicing the unconditional love and grace of God for one another.
Sunday morning is a good time to “let go and let God.” A time to breathe deeply, a time to reflect, a time to shout out loud, a time to weep, a time to laugh all while worshiping God who gives us the ability to feel all at the same time. Sunday morning is a time to find the unconditional acceptance of a loving God who embraces you just as you are. In other words, when we say “come as you are” we really mean it.
Sincerely, Rev. Nicole Trotter
Who we Are
We are people from all walks of life, backgrounds, philosophies, careers, and experiences who come together to love and worship God, and love one another as authentically and unconditionally as we are able.
We see God's love and purpose for humanity revealed in and through Jesus Christ and try to follow his Way and experience his Grace.
We love to worship in both traditional and non-traditional ways. We are relaxed but also appreciate the formality of ritual and sacrament.
Music-Most Sundays we sing traditional hymns because they are rooted in the experiences of countless men and women who come before us. We have a small but classical choir who grace us with their voices and dedication.
Acoustic Sundays-At least once a month we have an acoustic guitar service where we blend secular popular songs and modern hymns that are easy to sing.
Children in Worship and Sunday School
Children are always welcome in the sanctuary. Each worship holds a “Time for the Child in all of us.” This message is directed at children but with the full awareness that it speaks to all people at any age. Following that message, children are invited to the nursery and Sunday School. We have a one room school house led by a mature and wonderful senior who wants to be a pediatrician. There they will be taught bible stories with a focus on God’s love, the teachings of Jesus Christ and sharing God’s love in the world through their actions.
Serving the community and world around us
We care about the community and the world and strive to do what we can to let God's light and love shine from us. We look for ways to serve locally and globally. Our board of Deacons are active and committed and involve the whole congregation's participation in service.
