We strive to welcome, serve, and minister to all members of our parish family, whether they've been a member for years or are visiting for the first time. If you are interested in these ministries, or have ideas about how to help, please contact us.
Eucharistic visitors take Holy Communion to those who are sick or otherwise unable to attend services. These visits include prayer and pastoral care, as well as administering the Communion. All Eucharistic visitors work in pairs and under the supervision of the parish clergy. Once a month, the visiting team meets with Fr. Brian and Deacon Bill for updates and training. If you would like to be trained for this important ministry, please contact a deacon.
AUBURN RAVINE TERRACE EVENING VESPERS MINISTRY
For more than 20 years, St. Luke’s, along with other Auburn faith communities, has been serving the residents of the retirement community Auburn Ravine Terrace by bringing Evening Vespers to many who cannot attend regular worship services. Evening Vespers is an informal service of evening prayer from our Book of Common Prayer. If you would like to help bring worship to the residents at Auburn Ravine Terrace, please contact us.
The welcoming ministry team helps the parish connect with newcomers and visitors and helps them participate in the worship and fellowship of the parish. Duties include standing in the narthex to help greet after services and accompanying people to coffee hour or other fellowship events. Welcoming team members can be scheduled to serve on Sundays at 8:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. If you would like to help with this ministry, please contact us.
COFFEE HOUR Team
After our Sunday worship services, members, visitors, and friends gather in the Parish Hall next to the church for coffee, snacks, and fellowship. Whether you are new to the parish or have been coming for years, be sure to stop by after the service.
The hospitality team purchases, prepares, and sets up coffee and other light refreshments for the 8:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. services. They also help set up for larger events such as church dinners and receptions. If you are interested in hosting coffee hour, or in providing food or beverages, please contact us.
