What To Expect
We welcome anyone who steps through our door. While we take our worship seriously, we like to have fun and we are casual about what we wear, so please wear whatever clothing makes you feel comfortable. Our members will greet you and answer any questions you might have and will direct you to the Welcome Center for more information about our beliefs and ministries.
We worship corporately and conversationally, with prayers and responses, readings and liturgies that encourage participation from all. We sing the best of a wide range of musical styles, from the hymnal to the newest songs composed for congregational singing, including contemporary, folk, gospel and traditional styles. We also sing the music of the church from around the world.
Children are welcomed in worship and our service features some special children’s programming, including a Children’s Sermon and Children’s Church during the sermon. The “Prayground” at the front of the sanctuary invites young children to come any time during the service to quietly sit at tables and experience worship with age-appropriate coloring sheets. To encourage older children to listen to the sermon, children’s bulletins are available. At this time our nursery for children age 0-3 is not available, but we hope to soon offer this important ministry to our families.
St. Luke’s is located north of Grand Rapids in Plainfield Township on the NE corner of the East Beltline and Four Mile Road, across from Robinette’s.
