Who are we at St. Luke’s?
We provide friendly, reflective worship following liturgies in the Episcopal tradition. We also offer opportunities for exploring different styles of worship. As a small church, everyone is especially appreciated. St. Luke’s has long functioned as a church for the entire community in times of need, comfort and celebration . Leadership around ecumenical program s and services is a St. Luke’s hallmark. We are pleased to house non profit community groups, including the Brockport Ecumenical Outreach Committee’s (BEOC) Clothing Center, an office of Rural & Migrant Ministry, Scouts, and AA. In 2000, the Episcopal Church designated St. Luke’s as a Center for Jubilee Ministry; as a Jubilee Church, we answer God’s call to mission by providing spiritual, financial, volunteer, and facility support to numerous mission programs .
What do we have to offer?
An Open and Inclusive Church
As we live and grow in faith, we are learning to embrace our differences, welcome diversity, and strive to open our hearts, minds and doors to any who seek to follow Christ.
Advocacy for Peace and Justice
“Do Justice, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly with God.” This ringing call to action is the answer given by the prophet Micah (6:8). Through prayer and involvement , St. Luke’s continues a rich heritage of empowerment and social action on behalf of peace and justice.
As we continue in our faith journey together, one of our highest priorities is offering children and youth formation programs. St. Luke’s offers special seasonal and adult formation programs.
Prayer and Wor ship
The center of our life together is prayer and worship. Two services are offered each Sunday at 8 AM and 10 AM. Children meet with teachers in class during the I 0:00 service, joining everyone for communion and “Children’s Time with the Rector”. There are many opportunities for all to become involved in preparing and worshipping together through Altar Guild, music, ushers, readers, chalicists, and acolytes.
Music – Integral to our worship, the choir enhances our spiritual experience. We are blessed with their leadership and ministry to St. Luke’s and other community groups.
In caring for each other, we provide spiritual support through our prayer chain , card ministry and weekly intercessions. Many of us, includ ing our rector, are active volunteers at local Lakeside Hospital.
We at St. Luke’s invite ways to come together to learn more about each other and strengthen our parish family ties. Various children and youth activities, Sunday coffee hour, men’s monthly breakfast , housekeeper s, seasonal meals and parties, July hot dog and book sales, newcomers’ breakfast, and women ‘s group are all ways that we share our time together.
What ministries do we share in partnerships with others?
Community Ministry: as we believe Christ is calling us to do, we seek ways to open our buildings and extend our programs and services to all, regardless of spiritual belief or religious affiliation . St. Luke’s also participates in community ecumnical programs and worship services.
Jubilee Ministry: our Baptismal Covenant calls us to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves. We give thanks for God’s blessings by giving to others through our various outreach efforts. Our Jubilee Ministries include Amnesty International, BEOC Clothing Center, Brockport Food Shelf, Crop Walk, Strong West Hospital Medical Fund, Strong West Hospital Chaplaincy, Lifetime Assistance, St. Luke’s Harvest Kitchen, North Porch, Prison Ministry, and Rural and Migrant Ministry.
Our ministries support the Millennium Development Goals, a mission priority for the Episcopal Church, comprised of eight interrelated targets for the eradication of global poverty.
