Welcome to St. Lukes Lutheran Church

What if Church was more than just a Sunday event? What if the Church was always intended to be something more than a regular activity? We believe Jesus established His Church around relationships not institutions or programs. Jesus calls us into relationship with Him and His Father through His death and resurrection and says that His disciples will be recognized by the way they love. (Jn 13:35) Not to say we aren’t an institution, we are, or that we don’t have programs, we do. But we see institution and programs as the car, and relationships as the engine.
“Institution and Programs are the car” “Relationships are the engine”
