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!


Seeds of Hope Returns with ‘Healthy Cooking Classes’!

Back to Church Sunday – Sunday, September 13

September 13 will be Back to Church Sunday.  The choir will be back.  Youth Group will be back.  Sunday School will begin its fall schedule. Not that attendance has been all that bad this summer (it hasn’t).  But we look forward to gearing up for an active and fulfilling fall calendar (please read about it in this edition of The People!).
