Connect to God
Serve Your World
We offer programs throughout the week including Pathways, an adult education hour at 9:00AM, on Sundays during the program year. Speakers and small groups provide opportunities to cultivate your faith through community and discussion. No matter where you are on your faith journey, Saint Luke’s meets you there.
We offer rich and engaging Church School programs for all ages. Experienced childcare is available for infants and toddlers. Registration is ongoing throughout the year.
Fall happenings at Saint Luke’s
Sunday, September 8, 2019, 11 AM
Welcome Home Sunday! The Dog Days of Summer! We will hold a single worship service outside (weather permitting) on the front lawn, process to and bless our new labyrinth, then enjoy hot dogs and ice cream. This will be a great way to praise God and launch the program year at Saint Luke’s.

The official beginning of our program year, with services at 8:00, 10:00 and 5:00 (CAYA returns), Sunday school, choir and Pathways, led that morning by Rabbi Geoffrey Mitelman, a returning favorite presenter here. Come ready to start a great and eventful year!

Our intrepid Assistant Rector, the Rev. Derek Stefanovsky will, God willing, move from being deacon to priest at Saint Luke’s with his ordination to the priesthood in the morning.
Ordination is a festive service celebrating all the ways God uses the Church to accomplish the divine mission of healing, restoration, and reconciliation in the world. The Rt. Rev. Todd Ousely, recently Bishop of Eastern Michigan, will preside.
A time certain is still being determined, but likely 10 or 11 a.m. Plan to attend!
SAINT LUKE’S ENTERS A TIME OF TRANSITION
Our Rector, David Anderson, moved onto another role on December 2nd and he will be taking up a new ministry as Chaplain of Episcopal Community Services in Philadelphia.
Change is never easy but Saint Luke’s excels in moments like this. We have a deep bench of leaders who have led the congregation through Rector transitions in the past, and who can help us use this time to strengthen and renew the mission of this parish. Your Wardens, Mark Campbell and Frank Huck, will keep the congregation apprised of the process that will bring us an Interim Priest-in-Charge, and allow us to focus on the future of Saint Luke’s and the work of searching for a new Rector.
Your Vestry will be especially available to you in the transition. If you have questions or comments, please be in touch.
