Welcome to St. Luke´s ~ San Lucas, our parish. We are Episcopalians, followers of a catholic tradition that is not rigid and legalistic, that emphasizes the grace and love of God for all. We invite you to get to know us through our 8:00 and 10:00 morning services every Sunday. God bless you.
Bienvenidos a San Lucas ~ St. Lukes, nuestra parroquia. Somos Episcopales, seguidores de una tradicion católica, pero no rígidamente legalista, que enfatiza la gracia y el amor de Dios para todos. Les invitamos a conocernos por medio de nuestra Misa en Español cada domingo 1:00 de la tarde. Que Dios les bendiga.
The gospels are full of meals; having meals was one of the ways Jesus made contact with people, all people. And He shared homey hospitality in so many settings–from the open air to the humble abode to the secretive upper room; shared meals are at the heart of Jesus’ ministry.
In October we formed several At Table groups to help our growing St. Luke’s family get to know each other in small, easily manageable groups. Reports indicate great success and fun had by all! Most have had three meals so far, and are getting ready to wrap up, so it’s time to throw your name into the mix—again or for the first time—and get matched with the spring groups.
At Table Groups consist of six to eight adults—or approximately 4-6 households—who meet in each home once a month for a simple meal. Church membership is not required. Each household takes a turn as host, preparing and serving the meal, “family-style.” Meeting dates and times are decided by group consensus, as are decisions about including children, alcohol, and accommodating special dietary needs, etc. A host need not necessarily bring the group to their home—if you prefer, consider hosting your group at the church, or even have a cookout at a local picnic shelter! Single-person households are welcome to team up with another as co-hosts if they prefer.
These groups have no agenda; they are not formal prayer groups or a Bible studies. The only structured element is time (the meal usually lasts 2 hours). It is a relaxed, informal gathering for food, fun, and fellowship. At Table groups do not take the place of Friday Night Live—they represent another way of getting to know your fellow parishioners.
Sign-up sheets are in the Narthex also.
