Move in Ministry

A message from Dr. Pace:


EasterattheparkOn April 8, Easter morning, St. Luke's has an extraordinary opportunity to provide a worship service for the City of Houston. Easter at the Park will celebrate the glory of the resurrection at Discovery Green in downtown Houston. A great worship service is planned for 10 a.m. with Rev. Justin Coleman preaching, the Encounter Band playing, and Youth Advocates awesome break dancing crew spicing things up.


In order to really make Easter at the Park a success, we need over 100 volunteers. We need your presence to make those who come feel welcome so that they may see Christ in your smile, your handshake, and your hospitality. WE need roadies (loading and unloading), transportation folks (big SUV owners), photographers, egg Hunt chaperones, children's craft table workers, greeters and ushers. We would love your help!


We are privileged to be the body of Christ for the City of Houston and ask you to join us and be part of Easter at the Park. Sign up at the Connection Center on Sunday mornings or simply email our volunteer coordinator, Louise McEvoy, at
