SUNDAYS

"A Word for Today" Sunday Bible Study:10 a.m. each Sunday
This summer our lectionary readings journey with the apostle Paul in the glorious letter to the Romans, and St. Matthew in his gospel account of Jesus as messiah. Each week we will focus on either the passage from Romans or Matthew, discerning with the help of the Holy Spirit how God is speaking through these passages into our lives and hearts today. All are welcome!   Click here to join via Zoom.

Sacred Ground: A Film-Based Dialogue Series on Race & Faith
Sacred Ground is a film- and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race and racism, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.  Our very own Robin Withers and Martin Japtok will be facilitating a group on Wednesday evenings starting in August. Presently this group is filled, but please let Ruth know if you would like to be on the interest list for possible future offerings of the series.
 

Who Are We?

St. Luke's North Park is a Christian community seeking justice and healing in this colorful and dynamic neighborhood of San Diego.  Our congregation began in 1923 with the arrival of All Saints' chapel building on 30th and Gunn Streets, and became known over the decades to follow for its service to others (as with the organization of the first school for children with autism in the city) and for healing (the founder of the International Order of St. Luke, John Gayner Banks, was St. Luke's first rector).  

In the past fifteen years God has led us to a new blessing: to serve as one of the primary cultural centers for South Sudanese Americans in the city, and more recently, for Congolese refugees. Worshipping with us is a joyous and memorable experience!  We also are proud to host sixteen twelve-step support meetings on campus each week and look for new ways to serve our local recovery community; and we are grateful to host Uptown Community Service Center and its good work with the unhoused persons of North Park.  We are also proud partners with RefugeeNet and the International Rescue Committee on an urban farming and commercial kitchen project.

We dream to be a place where all people can enter into uncomfortable and brave spaces with others different than themselves -- different races, ethnicities, classes, creeds, sexual orientations, and gender identities -- and find their perspectives and hearts transformed.  We follow a God who loves each of us especially for who we are and desires that every single human among us has all she or he needs to thrive in this world.  Until that day comes, we will work alongside God's powerful Spirit to do justice in this hurting world and help all people find a loving and dignified home.  We are members of the Episcopal Church, a denomination striving imperfectly and sincerely to offer this radical hospitality to all.
