Sunday Worship begins at 10:30 am in the historic church sanctuary. The church welcomes anyone who desires to be closer to God.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
~ Matthew 11:28-30
The Sycamore Street entrance is handicapped accessible.
Thursday Noon- Holy Eucharist and Healing Service is a brief but meaningful worship service in the church sanctuary led by our priest. Come pray with us and feel the healing power of our loving God.
"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak."
~ Isaiah 40:29
What is it like to worship at St. Luke's?
St. Luke's, as expressed by our mission statement, has aspects that are both traditional and modern, but in the sanctuary the traditional aspect is most evident.
When you come to worship on Sunday, you will be met at the door by ushers who will give you a bulletin with the hymns, the order of service, pages numbers for the Book of Common Prayer (BCP), the weekly readings, and congregational responses. We observe quiet before the service for silent prayer and reflection. The service begins when a bell announces the procession into the church by the pastor, acolytes, and choir. Observing these traditions helps us open our hearts and minds to the presence of God in His house. We call St. Luke's "a sacred place", and we invite you to experience it for yourself!
Open to all... no exceptions. These words of our mission statement reflect both the Great Commission: Matthew 28:16–20, and the Great Commandment: Matthew 22: 35–40 and Mark 12: 28–34.
Celebration of the Eucharist is the holiest and perhaps most beautiful part of our worship service. All who have been baptized may share in Holy Communion. If you prefer to pass up the wine, which contains alcohol, simply cross you arms and you will receive the same blessing.
Children and Infants are welcome in the worship service. We have some toys they can play with quietly in the pews. At present, we do not have a nursery, although one is being planned. Contact the church office 704-240-3332 if you have concerns about bringing little ones.
Physically challenged visitors may use handicapped parking spaces on Cedar Street. Enter at the side entrance where there are no steep steps.
Parking is all along Cedar Street (but not on Sycamore Street).
Coffee Hour follows the Sunday Service. Sometimes it's just coffee and cookies; sometimes it's a lavish brunch, but it's always a good time for folks to chat and meet newcomers. If you are visiting, don't miss Coffee Hour n the Parish House! (It's also where the restrooms are located.)
