Welcome

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!

  • Sunday Worship

    Sunday May 9 pdfs for Worship Bulletin and Announcements

    On Sunday May 29 we will begin worshipping outdoors in the grove whenever weather permits, enjoying much more freedom with our worship celebration.

    Indoor worship gathers in both the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall buildings

    • Pastor and musicians lead worship in the Sanctuary
    • A super-size live audio/video is shared in the Fellowship Hall
    • Or watch our LiveStream online.  An archive of many services is available on our YouTube channel 

    COVID precaution changes include: 

    • Face masks are required in all buildings.
    • Tables and pew seating have been modified.  Please maintain safe distance from others.
    • Vocal music by a limited choir
    • No congregational singing indoors, 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

    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.
