Frequently Asked Questions

IF I AM NOT SURE ABOUT WHAT I BELIEVE, WOULD I BE WELCOME AT ST. LUKE JOY?

One of our highest priorities at St. Luke Joy is to provide a safe place for all kinds of people to search out the claims of Jesus Christ and learn what it means to be a recipient of God's grace and love! We don't always do this perfectly, but we want you to know that whoever you are, whatever your background or beliefs, you are welcome here!
