Adult Formation

Christian formation Director, Gordy Tucker gives us another look at Middle Eastern antiquities with his presentation of “Ashkalon V” where he tells about his fifth journey to Ashkalon, Israel, and the findings at the archaeological dig he has worked at. This is a fascinating look at the area, times and archaeological significance of the site. This study is offered Sunday mornings at 9:00 am in the parish hall. Join us for a look at the life and times of Jesus through another perspective.

Tuesday Class –  Please join us for 9:30 am contemplative prayer, followed by Holy Eucharist at 10:00 with the study from 11:00-noon and a potluck lunch afterward.

Wednesday Class – The evening begins with worship at 6:00 pm, simple supper (sign up sheet on the refrigerator in the kitchen) of soup, bread and dessert from 6:30-7:00 and the study from7:00 until 8:00.

Children’s Formation

Kids are a big part of life at St. Luke’s! We begin our focus with the beautiful Nursery, professionally staffed from 9:00 to 11:30 on Sunday mornings. Children from infancy through preschool find it a delightful place to have a little visit.

Sunday’s youngsters from preschool through 4th Grade are invited to Godly Play from 10:15 to 11:15, the Church School Hour.  Godly Play takes place in the Sacred Space, St. Joseph’s Chapel. Older kids go the “the Atrium.”   It is a very kid-friendly, interactive, thoughtful, and exciting teaching experience for the little ones.  We are proud to announce that St. Luke’s is a Certified Godly Play Center, with five teachers who have been accredited through Godly Play training.  After “class,” the young ones join their parents for Eucharist in the main Church.

Grades 5-12 meet upstairs in ‘The Attic’ from 10:15-11:15. These young adults are involved in a new and exciting program co-developed by our Christian formation team, using the Godly Play template. We take the lessons in directions that can’t even be imagined yet!!

Summer camp, intergenerational activities, youth worship experiences—all these and more are part of the intentional participation and involvement of our kids. We are glad to have them making noise and wearing the place out—just like their parents did!
