The original history of St. Luke’s was created in 1981 by the late Harry Hollingsworth, a long-time member of the parish. This history, together with two supplements extending it up through 1991, are now available in digital form through Duke University and the Religion in North Carolina project. This link takes you to a page where you may view or download the history in any of several electronic formats.
St. Luke’s Campus
St. Luke’s Church was chartered by the Diocese of North Carolina in February 1956. We moved to our present location fifteen years later. The Sanctuary was dedicated on St. Luke’s Day, October 18, 1971.
A parish house with kitchen facilities, large meeting room, and classrooms was completed in 1982. The name was changed to Johnson Hall in 1994 in honor of the dedication and service of Bob and Connie Johnson.
The former school building was actually occupied first in February 1970 by the St. Luke’s Preschool and Kindergarten, which closed in 2011. In June of 2011, the vestry of St. Luke’s renamed the school building the Elizabeth S. Gray Building ( in short, the Gray Building) in honor of Beth Gray’s innumerable contributions to the education, well-being, and education of children and her support of the mission of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The building now houses the LEAP preschool for latinx 4-year-olds on weekday morning and is used for Scouts, Sunday School classes, meeting rooms, and other ministries of the parish.
