Worship at St. Luke
8 a.m. Chapel Service – every Sunday
We offer the chapel service, a shortened version of the liturgical service. It includes Biblical readings, a sermon, and Holy Communion. This service is contemplative in atmosphere and has an intimate feel.
It is held in our chapel and usually lasts for about 1 hour.
10:30 a.m. Worship Service – every Sunday
(moves to 9:30 during Summer)
This worship follows the traditional Lutheran liturgy and offers Holy Communion every week. Organ music and the choir lead us in singing God’s praise. Occasionally special musical offerings by bell choirs, children’s choirs, or soloists are added to the service.
This service offers Children’s Praise Time. After the second Bible reading, children age 3 through grade 3 are invited to go to the chapel, where they hear about the gospel in ways geared towards their age level. They return to the sanctuary during the sharing of the peace.
Usually, this service lasts about 1-1/4 hours.
Summer Services (mid-June through Labor Day)
During summer, we offer the 8 a.m. Chapel Service and 9:30 a.m. Worship Service (note early time). The 9:30 a.m. service includes a Children’s Sermon.
No Sunday School or Children’s Praise Time are offered during the summer.
“Of the Land and Seasons” Service
Once a quarter, we celebrate a special service called “Of the Land and Seasons.” Its liturgy is set to traditional Appalachian folk tunes, and we are accompanied by a piano, mandolin, and guitar ensemble. This service highlights our connection to the land and to God’s good creation. We schedule it close to the official change of season according to the calendar. Feel free to call the church office (323-7309) to inquire about the next scheduled “Of the Land and Seasons” service.
Sunday School – every Sunday at 9:15 a.m.
(no classes during Summer)
Sunday School for all ages focuses on the Bible and its meaning for everyday life. Three adult courses are also offered throughout the learning year.
Occasional classes on the Bible, Lutheran teaching, and faith-life in today’s world are offered Wednesdays at noon and 7 p.m. Check out our calendar for classes.
An adult choir, children’s choirs, and three handbell choirs enrich our worship. Instrumental solos and ensembles are a regular feature of worship. The outstanding Carlson organ graces our music program.
