The Village UMC (formerly St. Luke South)

St. Luke “Community” United Methodist Church  Senior Pastor Tyrone Gordon had a vision. He wanted to expand the St. Luke mission of reaching out to the community by establishing a campus site in the southern sector of Dallas. After much prayer and many discussions with the North Texas Conference, Pastor Gordon was given the support to begin developing the concept. Pastor Gordon appointed Pastor Derek Jacobs to be the south campus minister for the new ministry in the tri city area of Desoto, Duncanville, Cedar Hill.

OUR HISTORY

st-luke-church-3St. Luke "Community" United Methodist Church, organized in April 1933,  in the old Duckett Hall that was a part of the great Fraizer Homes, has a long and distinquished history of community outreach and ministry. Established as  Saint Paul Mission, Rev. Nathan Pinkard  was appointed the Mission's first pastor. During  1937 St. Paul Mission became East St. Paul Methodist Church and later St. Luke Methodist Church. Church Membership grew, senior, and junior choirs were organized, and Methodist hymnals and a piano were purchased. In October 1937, Rev. Merrell T.Reed was assigned to the mission consisting of 12 members. During this decade three lots were purchased at Wahoo and Carter Avenues. Along with the worked and financial support of the church's members, a grant and loan were secured from the Board of Missions and Church Extension, and a building was erected.

On Saturday night before Palm Sunday, 1941, the church building and all its contents were destroyed by fire. On Easter Sunday, services were  held at True Vine Baptist Church.  In early 1944, construction of a new church building was begun. The cornerstone was laid in 1946.

Over the next 20 years, St. Luke continued, often struggling as churches that make a difference do. On May 17, 1965, the Rev. Dr.Timothy B.Echols interrupted his retirement to assume the pastorate. Associate Pastor, Rev. John W. Tatum, Sr. joined Dr. Echols in 1967. Under their guidance and direction, St. Luke developed an extensive community outreach program that included: cultural and educational enrichment field trips for children, interracial dialogue with youth and young adults, community Vacation Bible School, Saturday Sunday School, a preschool, legal aid clinic, halfway house that provided emergency lodging for displaced families, Boy Scouts and Blue Birds. The St. Luke Crusaders, athletic teams comprised of community youth, earned city championships in baseball, football, and basketball during the 1960's. St. Luke shared major programs in cooperation with the Dallas Inner City Parish, a United Methodist organization. Pastor Tatum served as sports team manager, youth minister and Parish Coordinator.

On July 14, 1974, St. Luke held its first services at the R.L.Thornton Freeway location. It was at this time, under the leadership of the newly appointed pastor, Rev. Zan W. Holmes, Jr., that the word "Community" was added to the church's name. This inclusion served to formalize the long-term vision and mission of the church. To move this vision forward in the new century, St. Luke purchased the former East Grand Baptist Church building to serve as the Zan W. Holmes, Jr. Community Life Center. In addition to providing space for St. Luke ministries, the Community Life Center once housed the East Grand Foundry Church of the North Texas Conference. After 28 years of service to St. Luke, Pastor Holmes retired from the pastorate. Rev. Tyrone D. Gordon by way of Wichita Kansas, was appointed as Pastor in June of 2002 and served as Senior Pastor til February of 2012. Rev. Zan W. Holmes,Jr. returned as interim Pastor until June of 2012. Senior Pastor Rev. Dr. Henry L. Masters, Sr. and S. Dianna Masters were appointed to St. Luke "Community" United Methodist Church in July 2012. In Janury of 2014, After 47 years in christian ministry, Dr. Masters announces his retirement.

July 1, 2014 Dr. Michael Bowie, Jr. begins his appointment as  the Senior Pastor of St. Luke "Community" United Methodist Church.

 

The Reverend Dr. Mike Bowie previously served on staff at Ginghamsburg Church from November 2004 to June 2008 as teaching Pastor. In his role, he shared the preaching responsibilities with Lead Pastor Mike Slaughter for 6 weekend worship celebrations. He also led a large bible study serving over 250 participants every Wednesday night. He was also responsible for providing leadership and vision to the men’s ministry. Dr. Bowie was also instrumental in founding and leading the “Loving Dayton Initiative” an urban outreach ministry in Dayton OH.

 

Dr. Mike Bowie also served for more than six years as the Senior Pastor of Love United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. Under his leadership the congregation experienced tremendous growth from 50 to over 500 in attendance. During his tenure as Pastor he also served as a church growth consultant with the General Board of Discipleship School of congregational development.


On April 18, 2010 Dr. Bowie was appointed as Lead Pastor of Stonybrook Church in Columbus OH. The mission of Stonybrook is to Love God, love others and serve the world. Dr. Mike Bowie is married to Jeannette and they have two children Lauren 17 and Trey 16. He holds a Doctorate of Ministry from United Theological Seminary specializing in church administration and congregational development.

 

 We look forward with great anticipation to future accomplishments for the Lord, as we continue "Reaching up to God and out into the Community".

 

Our Christian Roots

 

United Methodists share a common heritage with all Christians. According to our foundational statement of beliefs in The Book of Discipline, we share the following basic affirmations in common with all Christian communities:

 

Trinity

We describe God in three persons. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are commonly used to refer to the threefold nature of God. Sometimes we use other terms, such as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer.

God

We believe in one God, who created the world and all that is in it.

We believe that God is sovereign; that is, God is the ruler of the universe.

We believe that God is loving. We can experience God’s love and grace.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus was human. He lived as a man and died when he was crucified.

We believe that Jesus is divine. He is the Son of God.

We believe that God raised Jesus from the dead and that the risen Christ lives today. (Christ and messiah mean the same thing—God’s anointed.)

We believe that Jesus is our Savior. In Christ we receive abundant life and forgiveness of sins.

We believe that Jesus is our Lord and that we are called to pattern our lives after his.

 

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God with us.

We believe that the Holy Spirit comforts us when we are in need and convicts us when we stray from God.

We believe that the Holy Spirit awakens us to God’s will and empowers us to live obediently.

 

Human Beings

We believe that God created human beings in God’s image.

We believe that humans can choose to accept or reject a relationship with God.

We believe that all humans need to be in relationship with God in order to be fully human.

 

The Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today.

We believe that the mission of the church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

We believe that the church is “the communion of saints,” a community made up of all past, present, and future disciples of Christ.

We believe that the church is called to worship God and to support those who participate in its life as they grow in faith.

 

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word.

We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice.

We believe that Christians need to know and study the Old Testament and the New  Testament (the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Scriptures).

 

The Reign of God

We believe that the kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.

We believe that wherever God's will is done, the kingdom or reign of God is present. It was present in Jesus' ministry, and it is also present in our world whenever persons and communities experience reconciliation, restoration, and healing.

We believe that although the fulfillment of God's kingdom--the complete restoration of creation--is still to come.

We believe that the church is called to be both witness to the vision of what God's kingdom will be like and a participant in helping to bring it to completion.

We believe that the reign of God is both personal and social. Personally, we display the kingdom of God as our hearts and minds are transformed and we become more Christ-like. Socially, God's vision for the kingdom includes the restoration and transformation of all of creation.

 

With many other Protestants, we recognize the two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

 

Baptism

Through baptism we are joined with the church and with Christians everywhere.

Baptism is a symbol of new life and a sign of God's love and forgiveness of our sins.

Persons of any age can be baptized.

We baptize by sprinkling, immersion or pouring.

A person receives the sacrament of baptism only once in his or her life.

 

The Lord's Supper (Communion, Eucharist)

The Lord's Supper is a holy meal of bread and wine that symbolizes the body and blood of Christ.

The Lord's Supper recalls the life, death and resurrection of Jesus and celebrates the unity of all the members of God's family.

By sharing this meal, we give thanks for Christ's sacrifice and are nourished and empowered to go into the world in mission and ministry.

We practice "open Communion," welcoming all who love   Christ, repent of their sin, and seek to live in peace with one another.
