He knows that God is here and wants to be part of what the Holy Spirit is doing in this worshiping community.
St. Luke's on the Hill is a community of faithful Christian worshipers in the Anglican tradition, with the goal of keeping time-honored values and practices; we acknowledge the impact society can have on our spiritual lives and rely on God's word, the Bible, for guidance.
We are a parish that proclaims Christ's redeeming love for humanity through our worship, prayer, and outreach. We strive to follow the teachings of Christ and recognize at all times that our words and actions can have a powerful impact on others. Our love of God manifests itself within our parish community, our neighborhoods, our cities, state and country, and our world missions.
We welcome ALL to our parish on the hill, encouraging individuals and families to join us for worship, fellowship and spiritual support.
