SERVING, FAITHFUL, & CARING

Our Mission

FOLLOWING JESUS . . . LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS

Our Vision

Led by the Holy Spirit, St. Luke’s is a community bringing God’s love to others through forgiveness, healing, teaching and proclaiming Jesus as Lord.

Synod is the Greek word for “walking together.” In the Missouri Synod, each congregation is independently governed and operated at the local level. At the same time, we walk together with other congregations who subscribe to the teachings of the Bible as understood in the Lutheran Confessions in the Book of Concord.
