In 2014, we renovated our sanctuary.  The new look is not only beautiful, but helps us to “rethink” church orienting our worship of God to God’s presence in community – horizontally as well as vertically. The renovations connect us with the beauty of God’s creation by calling to mind plants, land, river, and forest.

Come join us any Sunday at 10 am on the corner of Pennswood and Montgomery Ave. in Bryn Mawr.  (click “About Our Church” for more information) Our pastor is Reverend David Tatgenhorst.

We offer a children’s program called the Children’s Celebration each Sunday during the worship service. The children gather in worship each Sunday. Most Sundays the children gather at the altar for a “theme talk” with the pastor or a congregant. We introduce the theme of the morning celebration and then the children go downstairs for separate programs. We include young people in the most important events of the church, including baptisms, blessings of mission projects, blessings of people coming and going. Carolyn Harmon and Sarah Dennis lead our Children’s Celebration. Sarah teaches the class for youth. Carolyn teaches a class for children. Kiara Jewette runs a nursery for toddlers or babies.

Each Sunday’s morning celebration includes inspiring music directed by Music Minister Matthew Phillips-English.The choir rehearses at 8:30 am each Sunday music. Music ranges from contemporary Christian to classical or traditional favorites.

St. Luke is a founding member of POWER Metro, a non-partisan, multi-faith coalition working for equitable funding for education and a raise in the minimum wage in Pennsylvania.

In June we celebrated our first anniversary of the vote to become a Reconciling Congregation, officially welcoming all people, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people.

When you come to St. Luke we hope you feel the presence of the Living God in the music, in the message, and in the community in this place.
