Kids are a big part of life at St. Luke’s! We begin our focus with the beautiful Nursery, professionally staffed from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings year around. Children from infancy through preschool find it a delightful place to have a little visit.
Preschool aged children and older are invited to participate in our Church School on Sunday mornings from 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Mirroring the regular school year, our Church School runs September through May. Youngsters from preschool through 1st grade meet in the Sacred Space, St. Joseph’s Chapel while those in 2nd through 4th grades go the “the Atrium.” These two classes use the Godly Play approach and curriculum to help the kids explore their faith through story. It is a very 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!
