About Saint Luke’s Episcopal Church




St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, as one of the oldest churches in Grants Pass, has a history of deep faith and traditional liturgy.  For over 120 years our red door has welcomed worshipers into a rich community of faith.

Our mission is : Love, Faith, Reason, Communion.

We reach out in joy and in Christ’s name to one another, to our community, and to the world.

One of the wonderful things about this church is our care for one another. Please help us continue and deepen this by letting the church office know when you are ill, hospitalized or in need of prayer. We especially want to serve you during these times.

Rector

St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, Grants Pass, joyfully announce that the Rev. Ernestein C. Flemister has accepted the call to become the 9th Rector of our parish. .Rev. Flemister is the first woman and the first African-American to be called by St. Luke’s.

She will begin her ministry with us August 22, 2018, and her first celebration of Holy Eucharist will be Sunday, August 26, 2018.

A graduate of Bexley Hall Seminary in 2007, Rev. Flemister has been Rector of St. James House of Prayer in Tampa, Florida since 2009.

We are looking forward to having Rev. Ernestein’s warm, pastoral presence among us as we thank God for the faithfulness of all involved in our discernment process.

Staff

Our wonderful Interim Rectors, Fr. Morgan Silbaugh and the Rev. Mary Piper completed their time with us in June. We can never thank them enough for the growth they nurtured during their time at St. Luke’s.

On June 23rd St. Luke’s celebrated 30 years of Ministry with our beloved Deacon Joani Bristol upon her retirement. We wish her all good things as she enters into the next step of her journey.
