Our congregation celebrates the Lord's Supper on the first Sunday of each month during. When we celebrate Holy Communion, we announce, "This is an open Table," meaning it does not necessary to belong to St. Luke UMC or be affiliated with the Methodist tradition, but it belongs to the Lord. All are welcome to partake because it is a means of Grace.
United Methodists understand baptism primarily as the act of God, through the church, in which a person is claimed as God's own and initiated into His family. Infants and adults are regulary baptized in all three worship services. Parents who wish to present their children for baptism are invited to call our Administrative Assistant, Michele Millet, at 477-3145, Ext. 110 to arrange a meeting with Rev. Larry Anderson or Rev. Don Abrams.
It has become a tradition at St. Luke that summers (Memorial Day through Labor Day) are casual dress. As we move into summer, we will relax a little and not be so formal in our Sunday dress - cool, casual, and comfortable (but appropriate!) is the key. You will notice that our ministers, choir members and acolytes even take a break from the formality of wearing robes during this casual time. We invite you to join us each Sunday, to casually “rest and refresh” your summer spirit!
St. Luke is known for strong programs for children and youth, but also has many ways for adults to get involved. Browse through the Ministries page to see what's going on at St. Luke.

We also send mission teams to Peru and Ecuador. Browse through the Missions page and maybe you will find a way to serve that appeals to you.
