Welcome to St Luke's

Nestled in the heart of Bear Poplar/Mt Ulla, North Carolina, St. Luke's is dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through worship, prayer, and ministry to our community. We are here for all who…

  • Need the Bible's message and the Christian faith to come alive, make sense and make a difference in today’s world
  • Appreciate worship that engages the mind and touches the heart
  • Seek to find purpose in life and use their God given gifts
  • Yearn for lasting relationships in genuine Christian community
  • Desire balance in their fast-paced lives, a place of retreat where life slows down and is renewed

Will you come to grow, and worship, and serve with us?  We hope to see you soon!

    • A high quality super-size live audio/video is shared in the Fellowship Hall
    • Or watch LiveStream link online, an option for those of our members that are not yet comfortable worshipping indoors, as well as for others in the community, family living further away, etc. Videos archive of prior services are available on our YouTube channel (unfortunately, YouTube seems to drop/lose some of our livestream content) 

    Social distancing:  Tables and pew seating have been modified appropriately, with select pews open and others closed.  One “family” per pew, or individuals/couples on opposite ends.  Please maintain safe distance from others.

    Changes include: 

    • Vocal music by a limited choir
    • No congregational singing, which is shown to be high-risk
    •    Though feel free to hum along with the choir!
    • No passing of the peace
    • Offering boxes at entrances rather than passing an plate
    • No “children’s message” prior to scripture & sermon
    •    But expanded “children’s church” is offered instead (kids leave at first hymn, return after the sermon)
    • Many liturgical elements have been modified or moved
    • Please “whisper” the Creed and Lord’s Prayer
      You'll notice other adjustments as well.

    Many cherished experiences will be added back into our worship service, perhaps in modified forms as soon as we believe we can safely do so.
