At St. Luke's, we value and nurture children. We are also committed to helping them worship God. In our worship services, they may not always understand the liturgy, but we can help them know that this is a place where they are truly loved, valued, and needed and that the Holy Spirit is present.
We hope the activities listed here will help you relax and appreciate the children. Truly the kingdom of Heaven does belong to them.
The Children and Family Ministries program at St. Luke’s also offers activities outside of Sunday school for children, youth and their families. Some of these activities include a Fall Harvest Party, Kid’s Nights, Family Night, our annual Christmas Pageant and Easter Egg Hunt, the end-of-the-year Sunday school recognition picnic and a summertime Vacation Bible School.
Sunday School at St. Luke's
St. Luke’s Sunday school has four classes that meet weekly during the school year. These classes range in age from 2 ½ years through 8th grade. In addition to Sunday school time, most classes attend monthly Children’s Chapel sessions and spend time in church worshipping with their families.
A multi-age Sunday school class is offered during the summer from mid-June through July. Our junior and senior high youth groups, coordinated by volunteer leaders, meet outside of Sunday school time once or twice a month throughout the year.
