St. Luke’s is a parish within the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan.
We are a clustered parish with Christ the King in Taylor, Michigan. This means that we share a priest, share some resources (such as administrative and treasurer), but most importantly, we work and occasionally worship together. The Sunday services at St. Lukes are at 9:00 a.m. and at Christ the King at 10:30 a.m. Our priest is halftime, so services are alternated with the first and third Sundays offering service with Holy Eucharist and the second and fourth Sundays morning prayer by a lay leader. On fifth Sunday months, we alternate between St. Luke’s and Christ the King for a combined service of both congregations.
Our services are traditional in nature mostly originating from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. We are looking to adding in some more contemporary worship utilizing various resources within the Episcopal Church. Our goal is a well blended and balance of both traditional and contemporary content within our liturgies.
Our music is from the Hymnal 1982, and is very traditional in nature. Again we are looking to blend the traditional with the newer contemporary pieces that are available in other resources such as Wonder, Love, and Praise, and Lift Every Voice and Sing.
Because we are are small, we encourage everyone to share the gifts that God has given us. Perhaps your gift is music, gardening, decorating, accounting, clerical, mechanical… you are welcome to express it and share it with the community. Coming together all our gifts are a benefit to not only us, but to God’s kingdom!
We are a Believe Out Loud congregation, meaning we are recognized by the Episcopal Church as a welcome and affirming parish to the LGBTQ community. While this designation specifically mentions this population, we welcome all persons, regardless of who you are or where you’ve been, to share in our faith journey together.
Although we are a small community, we are always looking to grow – and ever looking to change, and ready for new members to our parish family. Consider checking us out to possibly be your spiritual home!
