Easter Worship - 9 am on Sunday, April 9th
followed by an Easter Egg Hunt for all ages
We have discontinued Zoom broadcast of our worship service, but hope to continue Facebook Live streaming. We would love to have you join us in person, if possible, at 9 am on Sunday! Communion is celebrated most Sundays, and coffee and light refreshments are available following the worship service. In accordance with CDC guidelines, masks are optional.
What We Believe
When Lutherans talk about faith,
we are talking about the relationship God’s Holy Spirit creates with us. It’s a relationship where God’s promise of steadfast love and mercy in Jesus opens us to a life of bold trust in
God and joyful, generous service
to everyone we know and meet in daily life.
For more about what we believe,
We are located at the corner
of West Main Street and Circle Drive in the village of Sidney, NY. Although our 911 address is 139 West Main Street, the entrance to our driveway is actually on Circle Drive. Our mailing address is:
PO Box 2008, Sidney, NY 13838 Phone (607) 563-1806
St. Luke's Lutheran Church was founded in Sidney, NY, in 1953.
Our unique church building was designed by an architect inspired by the surrounding rolling hills,
and was constructed in 1966.
A community center, which serves as a fellowship hall and meeting place, was added in 2004. Over
the years, we have been served
by a diverse group of pastors, several of whom have come from non-Lutheran denominational backgrounds.
We welcome all people, based
upon the foundation of God’s grace and mercy. Inspired by God's love, we offer healing and hope for all.

The cycling cherubs have reluctantly suspended their bicycle rides until warm weather returns in the spring. To join the email list for updates on the ride schedule, please email Chris at email@example.com
Worship & Music
Traditional liturgical and less formal worship services are held at 9:00 am on Sunday mornings. From September through June our worship is often enhanced by our choir. If you are interested in joining the choir, please speak to our organist/choir director David Burch. New members are always welcome, and we hope to be able to resume choral activity soon.
Following the worship service, we often have a coffee hour to help people to get to know each other better and encourage each other in their lives of faith.
Members of St. Luke's are both
Disciples – who study and practice the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Ministers – who go out into the community to serve and care for others.
If you are interested in joining our congregation, please come to our Sunday worship or contact our secretary at (607) 563-1806.
We are stewards of God's gifts. We give freely, in love, to share His blessings.
Most people give on Sunday morning as part of regular worship. However, if you are not able to be in church or just want to give electronically, you may do so here. St. Luke's uses the services of Tithely to securely process credit card donations on-line. Receipts for such donations will be sent from Tithe.ly and charges will appear on credit card statements from "CheckingStripe.comny"
We invite you to join our mailing list and receive emails we send out with news, or special worship schedules,
