If your talents lead you to serve your local church:

Church Committees are always looking for enthusiastic members.

Music

If your talents are musical: 
Participating in sacred music is a wonderful way to praise God, enrich worship, and enjoy fellowship at the same time!
  • Singing with our Chancel Choir. Rehearsals are held at 11:15 a.m. after worship on Sunday.
  • Ringing with one of our Hand Bell Choirs. Rehearsals are held as needed on Sundays following worship.  Please call the church to find out more.
More details on the Worship & Music tab.

Education

If you are seeking knowledge:
  • Bible Study Classes are available for all ages. Classes are available on Sunday mornings and during the week.
  • Spirits and Spirituality Classes for adults conducted by Rev. Harbison approach timely topics through the eyes of faith. The sessions are held in local establishments where participants enjoy meaningful discussion while they enjoy dinner and a beverage in fellowship with each other.

Fellowship

If you are seeking fellowship with friends and neighbors:
  • Cookie Time Every Sunday following the 10:00 a.m. worship service is provided by one of our members serving up cookies and other treats in our “Cookie Room”. It is the perfect time to catch up with our church family and hear about what is going on in their lives.
  • Mardi Gras – Jazz in the Parking Lot and Fish Fry is an event designed to have fun and kick off the Lenten season. Director of Music, Marvin Gaspard, brings the house down with his Marvin Gaspard Trio (piano, bass, and drums) playing lively jazz dinner music while everyone enjoys shrimp and catfish dinners of Texas-sized proportions. Bring your appetite for a New Orleans-style evening.
  • Easter Egg Hunt is an event for children in the church and neighborhood. Each year on Saturday morning before Easter, the Easter Bunny visits St. Luke’s. Children (and their parents, of course) hunt for hundreds of eggs and candy treats on the grounds of St. Luke’s. Bring your children and their baskets – let no egg go unfound!
  • July Jazz Communion Worship Service and Picnic is celebrated on the first Sunday in July at our 10:00 a.m. worship service. We praise God with toe-tappin’ jazz and gospel music led by the Marvin Gaspard Trio. The service has become one of our most enjoyed and well-visited services of the year. The communion service is followed by a good, old-fashioned, all-American picnic. You won’t want to miss this!
  • Longfellow Elementary Teacher Luncheon is hosted each year as school begins. Longfellow is located directly across the street from our building. St. Luke’s celebrates these HISD teachers and their important work with the children in our community with a luncheon complete with prize drawings.
  • Thanksgiving Dinner is celebrated each year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Our St. Luke’s family sits down to a catered Thanksgiving dinner to give thanks to the Lord for the bounty He has provided. There are always lots of family and friends visiting this time of year, so the feast is even bigger and better. We would love to have you join us for this dinner of thanks.
  • Live Nativity is presented to the neighborhood each year on a Wednesday evening preceding Christmas. While church members and friends re-enact the event of Christ’s birth in a beautiful manger scene (complete with a live camel, donkey, sheep, and goats), St. Luke’s Chancel Choir sings Christmas Carols for all. There are always lots of Christmas refreshments of cookies, hot cider, and hot chocolate to take the chill off the crisp night air. Please come fellowship with your neighbors and friends at St. Luke’s for this meaningful night!
Fellowship is an important part of the ministry of St. Luke’s.
Fellowship allows us to know each other better and enrich our sense of church family.
At St. Luke’s we welcome guests and visitors with friendly and open arms.

We have many opportunities. New ones open up all the time!
