PASTOR MARK GRIFFITH PRESIDING
We receive all people as loved, image bearers of God. We’re prayerfully moving toward racial and class equity and joyfully welcome all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions; simply seeking to journey with others in their spiritual quests. Our campus is accessible (ADA compliant), and we are a Sanctuary Denomination Church in relationship with the Northwest Washington Synod of the ELCA.
HELLO! We’re Glad You’re Here.
If you’re joining us for the first time, please know that you are glad you’re here. And you’re not just welcome at St Luke’s, we look forward to discovering who we will become now that you are part of St Luke’s. Also, but completely affirmed — no matter what. If you want to know a little more about what it means to be welcomed and affirmed at St Luke’s, just check out our welcome video.
We livestream our worship gatherings via YouTube and linked to on Facebook. And of course you are welcome to worship with us on-campus in North Bellevue.
Our campus is reasonably easy to find, near the South East corner of Bellevue Way & 520, just North of the QFC. We have a Metro Bus Stop (#249) on the corner. Our address is: 3030 Bellevue Way NE, Bellevue, WA 98004
If you are driving a car, please note that parking can sometimes be challenge; this is do to our shared lot with 30Bellevue and Sophia’s Place. Please view our parking map to help as a guide.
For those with compromised ambulatory abilities, our campus is equipped with accessible restrooms, we have a drop-off location right in front of the lobby which is close to our sanctuary, and we have plenty of accessible parking.
What To Expect From Worship
Our worship gatherings usually last 60-70 minutes. There is no dress code; please wear what is comfortable for you. People of all ages are welcome in our worship gatherings.
At our core, we seek to discover and embody a way of love as seen in Jesus of Nazareth. We gather to remember who we are, to discern personal and collective faithful presence, and to rehearse practices subverting structures of divisiveness, individualism, patriarchy and consumerism.
Our worship is rooted generously within a progressive Lutheran tradition. Recently we commissioned our pastor to go on 18 month pilgrimage to a remote spiritual retreat center – Holden Village – in the Cascade Mountains, to help us deepen our connection with God’s creation. We sense that gathering in collective worship is one of the primary ways humans grow in love of God, love of stranger/neighbor/enemy, love of creation, and love of self.
We sing together, engage in conversation, talk with God, listen to scripture, experience excellent preaching and storytelling. We gather around Christ’s Communion table every Sunday and all are invited to participate… you don’t have to be a member at St Luke’s – or any church – to participate. Our bread is allergen-free and we serve both wine and non-alcoholic grape juice. Opportunities to receive prayer with someone on our care or pastoral team are available at any worship gathering.
Immediately after our worship gatherings we serve coffee and tea in our lobby… which we lovingly refer to as Cafe Connect. And during the school year we have Sunday School for kids and youth and Community Forum for adults.
