What to Expect

What time does your Sunday worship service begin?
The Morning Worship Service begins at 11:00AM every Sunday.

Can anyone attend church school at Saint Luke AME Church?
We welcome anyone to attend and participate in our Church School activities. Our doors are open to all people. Church School begins at 9:45am every Sunday in the Fellowship Hall.

What are the worship services like?
We offer vibrant, exciting worship services that appeal to all ages. Our music ministry leads the congregants into worship with a variety of musical traditions and styles from hymns and quartet music to traditional gospel and contemporary gospel music.

What should I wear?
Although, many of our members wear dressy attire on Sunday, we invite people to dress comfortably and respectably. Casual attire is acceptable. Come as you are…really!

Where should I park?
Ample parking is available in our parking area in front of the church.
What activities are available for my children?
Our church has many activities for young people through our youth and children’s ministries. The young people are actively involved in the life of the church.

Am I allowed to take Communion?
All newcomers are welcome to share in the Holy Communion Service, if you believe in the life, work, and witness of Jesus Christ.

Do you acknowledge newcomers/visitors to the church?
We acknowledge newcomers during worship and invite the members of the church to greet you during our family fellowship time. This is an exciting time during worship to meet other kind and friendly persons.

How do I become a member of St. Luke AME Church?
During each worship service, we issue an Invitation to Discipleship where we invite people in need of a church home to join us at the altar. This invitation is extended to people who are new to the AME church, people who are members of another church and wish to transfer their membership to St. Luke and to those who wish to temporarily affiliate with St. Luke while they are away from their church homes.

The pastor welcomes new members and introduces them to the congregation. New members are then asked to see a designated member of the church to whom they will give their contact information. You will also be provided information on new member classes.

You may also call the church office at (803) 353-2595 to discuss your prospective membership with the pastor.
