Frequently Asked Questions

What makes St. Luke’s unique?
St. Luke’s is a vibrant Christian community located in a fast-growing community. We offer programs for all age groups. On Sunday mornings, we have Sunday services in the Sanctuary and Christian Education for children, youth, and adults. But St. Luke’s is about much more than Sunday mornings. We have opportunities throughout the week and throughout the year for you and your family to grow in your faith through education, music, drama, mission trips, and fellowship. As a Methodist church, our theology is based on Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience. For more about who we are and what we believe, see Who We Are.

We welcome you to our Christian family, where we share life. Wherever you are in your faith journey, you are accepted and encouraged to grow spiritually.

Join us in growing together toward full humanity through living the teachings of Jesus: Love, Acceptance, Justice and Hope.

What will the service be like?
Prayer, thoughtful sermons, contemporary and traditional music, videos, and children’s messages are all elements of St. Luke’s Sunday morning services. The 8:00 service is usually the smallest; there is no children’s message, and some of the music ministries are only performed at the other services. The 9:30 service is usually the largest. Communion is usually served on the first Sunday of the month.

How long are the services?
Sunday services at St. Luke’s normally run one hour, except that the 8 AM service runs closer to 45 minutes.

What should I wear to St. Luke’s?
Casual clothes are the norm at St. Luke’s. Wear whatever you are comfortable in. Yes, people wear shorts during the summer. But people also wear suits and dresses.

Where do my kids go during the service?
We have Sunday School downstairs for children ages two years old through 6th grade during our 9:30 and 11:00 AM services. Our children’s Sunday School program, called PEAK Adventures, uses the popular “rotation” model, where the same Bible story is taught for several weeks in a row, but from different perspectives, such as Art, Cooking, Storytelling, Cinema, Games and Science. We also have Sunday School for Junior High (7th and 8th grades) and Senior High (9th through 12th grades) youth at 9:30. Nursery is available downstairs during all Sunday services for children 0 to 3 years old.

Your children are also welcome, and encouraged, to stay with you in the Sanctuary during services. Or, you may use the "Cry Room" in our church office, where your child may be more comfortable and you can view and hear the service.

Some families have their children attend Sunday School while the parents attend one of our Communitas/Community Learning Group classes at 9:30, and then attend worship services together in the Sanctuary.

What are your communion practices?
Communion is usually served on the first Sunday of each month during the Sunday morning services. Following Methodist traditions, our communion is open to everyone. A Contemplative Communion Service is held on the third Sundays in the Chapel, from 8:15-9:00am..

What do you offer those with special vision or hearing needs?
For those with special hearing needs, we have special earphones. For those with special vision needs, we have large format hymnals. Please ask an usher if you have these needs.
