We believe that Jesus Christ came to reveal the fullness of God's love for us, and we continue to celebrate that love through praise, sacraments, service, and community.
Our church offers a wide range of ministry opportunities. Whether you'd like to learn more, pray more, or serve more, we have a ministry for you.
Making an offering to our financial resources is an integral part of what it means to be a Christian. We have a variety ways to make it easy for your to support our church.
News & Events
Our annual healing service will take place this weekend as part of our primary worship services. This annual service is often held on or near October 18, the commemoration day of St. Luke the Physician. As a part of the worship, those who wish will be invited forward to receive anointing, laying on of hands, and a prayer of healing. Those who wish not to receive this are welcome to remain in their pews praying for healing for themselves and those they love.
