For Our Visitors
You're welcome at St. Lucas!

If you are visiting this page, you probably have questions and are looking for answers in your spiritual life. We understand that it can be difficult to seek the answers to your spiritual questions and even more challenging to worship in a new church for the first time. You might be asking yourself:

  • “How can I find out more about St. Lucas?”
  • "What should I wear?"
  • "What can I expect during worship?"
  • "What about the offering?"
  • "What if my children make too much noise?"
We hope our visitor’s guide will answer some of the questions you might have before you visit our church. This guide exists to help you, our guest, as you consider visiting our congregation.
    How can I find out about St. Lucas?
  • St. Lucas Lutheran Church preaches the true Gospel found in the Bible. Every person is at a different stage in their faith life and each person struggles to understand God and His word. Our loving and caring pastors want to talk with you and help answer your faith questions. Please call our church office at 262-626-2680 to set up an appointment or email church@stlucaswels.org and a Pastor will respond to your inquiry.
    What time are our services?
  • Our Saturday worship service is at 6:00 p.m. Sundays services are at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m. from the week after Labor Day through the weekend before Memorial Day. During the summer months we conduct Saturday worship at 6:00 p.m., Sunday services at 8:00 and 9:30 a.m. and Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. in the school building. On your first visit it is best to arrive 10 minutes early.
    What should I wear to a worship service?
  • Since the Bible makes no demands about personal dress (apart from common decency and Christian humility), St. Lucas does not have a "dress code." On any given Sunday, you may see running shoes or sandals, jeans and Packer jerseys, open collars and ties. When a person dresses out of love for Jesus, the choice of dress - whether casual or more formal - is acceptable to God...and to us!
    What can I expect during worship?
  • The worship service is printed out each week in our worship folder, which you will receive from one of our ushers as you enter the sanctuary. Inside the worship folder is a brief explanation of the worship theme for that particular Sunday. All the congregation's spoken or sung "responses" can be found in the worship folder. You'll also find the Scripture lessons and the sermon information for the day.

    All our services focus on readings from God's Word - the Bible. Music and singing also play important parts of our worship. Loud or soft, in monotone or rich harmony, traditional or contemporary, all our music praises the Lord. Our worship uses traditional forms blended with contemporary songs, modern language, and life application. This "blended" style of worship brings out the best from God's Church throughout the ages, while the contemporary utilizes the best of what is being produced today. We hope you enjoy both as we worship our gracious Lord together!

    Our worship services usually include the following parts in a variety of ways:

    • The Invocation - We call on the name of the triune God as we come to worship him.
    • Admitting Sins and Receiving Forgiveness - We acknowledge that we have not been or done everything God asks. Then we are assured of forgiveness in Jesus.
    • Bible Readings - We read selections from God's Old Testament prophets, Jesus' apostles, and from Jesus himself. Our pastors also give a brief explanation of each lesson.
    • Sermon- Our pastors offer instruction and encouragement in a Christ-centered message based on one of the lessons read in the service. You can expect to hear God's guidance and grace for dealing with life's problems, as well as the promise of eternal life in heaven through the world's only Savior, Jesus Christ.
    • Response to the Word - We respond with offerings and prayers for the things he has promised to us and for strength to do what he has asked.
    • Prayers- Our worship gives us the opportunity to pray for our members, our church, our communities, our nation, and our world. Prayer requests are welcomed!  (please send any prayer request to stlucaspastor@gmail.com)
    • Parting Blessing - Before we return home for the week, we hear one last assurance of the Lord's gracious care.
    What about the offering?
  • Our Saint Lucas Family members bring offerings to God through their church. These offerings give them the opportunity not only to show love to Christ, but also to support the work of the congregation as we bring the Good News of Christ's love to more people. Since offerings are gifts of love for God, no one can dictate what an individual is to give.

    St. Lucas passes an offering plate following the sermon so that our worship may include bringing gifts to God. Many of our members use offering envelopes to keep their gifts a private matter known only to the Lord.

     

    As our guest, we do not expect you to give an offering nor do we want to pressure you into doing so. You may wish to learn more about our ministry before bringing your offerings to God through our church, but you are welcome to participate as your heart leads you to give.

    What if my children make too much noise?
  • We encourage families to worship together. It is not at all uncommon to hear children's cries during the hymns, lessons, and sermon.  On the back several pews you will find bags filled with children's activities that are Bible-based.  If, however, you feel that your little one needs some personal attention, we also have a family room just off our church entryway.
