St. Luke's Church is open for in-person worship at 10:30 A.M. on Sundays. We have also begun to livestream our services via Facebook Live. Please visit our Facebook page at 10:30 to watch the service or thereafter to view the video at a later time. You may also watch it below on the website.
If you visit us on Sundays, you will see that the church has been sanitized and set up for strict social distancing. Please wear a face covering. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you. Before you enter the church, our usher will take your temperature and ask you to use hand sanitizer from the Parish Hall touchless dispenser. At our service of Holy Eucharist, communicants will receive the sacrament in one kind only -- bread, NO wine.
For more information about our protocols during the continuing pandemic, please check out the Sep/Oct 2020 issue of our New Visions newsletter here:
We want you to be safe when you visit us for worship. If you are uncomfortable or if you do not feel well, please stay home.
We continue to be particularly concerned with the wellbeing of those at highest risk – those people over 60 and/or those with underlying medical conditions. Please continue to check in with your friends and neighbors and hold all those who are vulnerable in prayer.
We will continue our Virtual Coffee Hour via Zoom on Sundays at 12:30 P.M. Please email us for credentials.

THE FIRST SUNDAY OF ADVENT
Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
--Collect of the Day, The Book of Common Prayer

A PRAYER FOR HEALING
The Almighty Lord, who is a strong tower to all who put their trust in him,
to whom all things in heaven, on earth, and under the earth bow and obey:
Be now and evermore your defense, and make you know and feel that
the only Name under heaven given for health and salvation is
the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (The Book of Common Prayer, 1979)
Join us on the Third Sunday of the month for a quiet Healing Service.
The service takes place in the Chapel following the main Sunday service.
There are no in-person healing services at St. Luke's at this time. HOWEVER...
We are leaving this notice in place even during the Coronavirus Quarantine times in hopes that we will be able to return to it when we are able to do so...If there is a need for special healing prayers, PLEASE contact us. PRAYER is the one thing we can all do collectively and effectively!
