St. Luke's Episcopal Church, Long Beach, CA

We Welcome You to St. Luke’s!

We welcome everyone equally and enthusiastically. Whatever your religious background, age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or economic status, we welcome you. If you are responding to a deep inner yearning, a hunger to be part of a community of faith, a desire to love and be loved by God, or a call to follow Jesus, we welcome you!

If you have left behind a loving congregational family and are searching for a new spiritual home, we welcome you! If you have been wounded or abused or alienated or disturbed by judgmental religion and religious hypocrisy, we welcome you! If you have been bored out of your mind by previous encounters with bland-leading-the-bland churches, we welcome you!

 

Homecoming Sunday

At St. Luke’s, we are rolling out our fall in stages, starting Youth Group and Sunday School on Sept. 7, but bringing the choir back and officially launching the fall on Sept. 14 with Homecoming Sunday.

Homecoming Sunday is not exactly an original idea, but it’s a good one!  For St. Luke’s, it’s a combination of getting the Fall off to a good start and inviting friends and family to church, like the Open Houses we’ve had in the Spring.  In effect, we’re moving Open House to the Fall in the hopes that people don’t immediately drift away into a summer schedule.

So bring your friends, bring your loved ones, and let’s kick the fall off with joy!
