The holidays can be a difficult time for those who’ve experienced the loss of a loved one, a divorce or separation, loss of a job, cancer or illness that puts a question mark over the future, and a number of other human situations. Parties and festivities can be painful for many people in our congregation and community. On December 19, St. Luke’s will offer a special time of reflection, hope, and healing at our Blue Christmas Worship Service at 4:30 p.m. in the transept of the Sanctuary. Join us in this sacred space and find comfort and acceptance this season.

 

If you feel sick, or if you are in a high-risk health group, please do not visit St. Luke’s campus. Please monitor yourself closely for symptoms of COVID-19 to keep your neighbors safe.

ON-CAMPUS WORSHIP FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Is registration still required for on-campus worship?

A: As of Sunday, May 23, registration is no longer required for on-campus worship. Capacity in each worship venue will be limited and seating will be on a first-come basis.

Q: Will we be wearing masks?

A: As of July 29, 2021 masks are required inside all St. Luke’s buildings including worship venues regardless of vaccination status (over the age of 2). If you do not have a mask one will be provided for you. If it is not possible for you to wear a mask, please join us for online worship.

Q: What precautions is St. Luke’s taking to help keep worshipers safe?

A: St. Luke’s is taking the following precautions (based on guidance from the Florida Conference of the United Methodist Church and the CDC):

  • Limiting capacity – in this phase of St. Luke’s Reopening Plan, the seating capacity in the worship venues will be limited.
  • Encouraging social distancing – please keep space between you/your group and others.
  • Disinfecting and sanitizing regularly – the worship space will be disinfected regularly along with high-touch areas such as door handles; we have installed multiple hand sanitizing stations throughout our campus, please use these frequently as you pass them.
  • Promoting contactless greetings – please do not hug, touch, or get close to individuals who are not members of your household; alternative greetings include a smile, wave, nod, etc.
  • Arranging socially distant seating – once seated, we ask that you remain in that location for the duration of the service. Please do not rearrange seating areas.
  • Reducing unnecessary contact – high-touch items like Bibles, hymnals, offering envelopes, and Connection Cards have been removed from the pews and printed material will not be distributed. Please download the St. Luke’s Orlando app to access supplemental worship materials.
  • Temporarily suspending refreshments – coffee and donuts will not be available.

Q: Will we be singing in worship?

A: Those who are fully vaccinated are invited to participate in congregational singing in worship.

Q: Will we be passing the offering plate/basket?

A: We encourage you to use online giving, give via the St. Luke’s Orlando app (download it here) or contact Andrea Whisnant for help in setting up recurring giving. If you choose to give in person, offering boxes are available as you enter the Sanctuary or Founder’s Hall. We will not pass offering plates during the service.

Q: Will childcare or Sunday School be available on campus?

A: Children are always welcome in worship at St. Luke’s and families can choose to worship with children 11 and under for the entire worship service or until they are dismissed for Worship Enrichment. Families may also drop off children for a full hour of children’s programming up to 10 minutes prior to the start of worship. For the health and safety of our youngest disciples, masks will be required in Buildings A and B, and those working with children 11 and under will continue to wear masks to protect the vulnerability of children who are not yet vaccinated. Look for all-new age-appropriate lessons, events, and programs by visiting st.lukes.org/children.

Q: Will youth Sunday School be available on campus?

A: For more details and updates about Youth Ministries email St. Luke’s Youth Ministries or visit the St. Luke’s Youth webpage.
