In January 2022, Pastor Mark accepted a unique opportunity to parnter with Holden Village in Chelan, WA. With St Luke’s blessing, he and his family moved to Holden Village and will be providing pastoral services there until mid 2023. After his 19-month term is complete, he will return to St Luke’s in his full-time role as pastor.
We at St Luke’s, wholeheatedly welcome our temporary pastor: Pastor Dwight Friesen to preside until pastor Mark and family return to the fold. Welcome Pastor Dwight! To read more about his many gifts as pastor, author, educator and more, please read his biography.
We look forward to introducing you to Pastor Dwight and we pray for a wondeful journey at Holden Village for Pastor Mark and his family.
Who We Are
St. Luke’s Lutheran Church is a member church of the Northwest Washington Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We are also a Sanctuary Denomination church and welcome everyone who walks through our doors.
We have a passion for homelessness. We have found serving our community to be an experience of tremendous growth both spiritually and emotionally. We have hosted Congregations for the Homeless every February since 1993, Sophia’s Place Day Center and Shelter have resided at St. Luke’s since 2012, in 2019 we christened the brand-new complex called 30BELLEVUE – Sixty-three units of affordable housing for low income families located directly behind our church – and the list goes on.
We believe we are created and chosen by God, forgiven by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and blessed with the promise of a redeemed life. We want our House to be a refuge, our people a comfort, and to be a bright light reflecting grace back into the world.

We want to be a bright light reflecting grace back into the world.
“Did not our hearts burn within us?” (Luke 24:32)
So much of our journeys, whether just beginning or continuing or ending, are grounded in the opportunities from the chance to talk to Christ as we find him walking beside us.

Children, Youth & Family
The mission for Children, Youth and Family at St. Luke’s is to provide a means for fostering personal and spiritual growth. We do this for our youth and families by providing planned activities and events where experiences are shared intergenerationally – with an emphasis on providing the building blocks for life applications through the life of Christ.
For a complete list of our activities and special events please call us. Dedicated nusery room available for our youngest congregants.
VBS is a joyous time here at St. Luke’s! It’s high energy, vibrant and so much fun. Every year we host dozens of children and spend the week exploring new avenues to Christ-centered teachings and loving ourselves. Registration for the summer of 2022 will be available later this spring. Request more information with our coordinator: Melinda Steen at email@example.com.
Our annual retreat to Camp Lutherwood in Bellingham is a memory-maker for everyone who attends. We play games, sing songs, enjoy nature and so much more. It’s a journey to get there but when you’re there you’re truly away from it all. It’s uplifting and relaxing. Please join us!
Children ages 5 thru 12 enjoy Sunday School between our early and late services (9:45am start time). This allows children to attend regular services. We believe that children sharing service with their parents is an important aspect of their faith journey.
The PrayGround is a dedicated area in our sanctuary that is set up for children (and parents) to quietly, or sometimes not-so-quietly, color and draw and be part of the regular service. We LOVE children at St Luke’s and never frown on the ocassional noise or wiggles-attack!
