Greetings St. Luke’s, friends and family!
"Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs." Matthew 19:14
The presence of children, youth and young adults is a crucial part of our life together at St. Luke’s. Not just because the church has a lot to offer them, but because they have so much to offer the church. The talents and perspectives of our young parishioners are a gift, and their presence makes our community whole.
"For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ." 1 Corinthians 12:12-13
The foundation of our Christian faith is the Word: we hear it in the voice of Jesus and in Holy Scripture, we share it in prayer and we encounter it in the silent language of the Holy Spirit that courses through our lives. The Word is living and true and at St. Luke’s we are creating a space where children of all ages can encounter it in all manner of ways.
Beginning September 8th (All are Welcome Sunday) we will have:
- Nursery for Children up to age 5 years
- Sunday School for children ages 6 to 12 years
- Confirmation class and volunteer opportunities for teenagers
- Youth Choir practice on Sundays after the 10am service, performing on...
- Youth Celebration Sundays, 5 times a year
For all families (of any age) we will have regular fellowship gatherings at the Rectory.
Come and see that we are faithful and dedicated to giving even the youngest persons the chance to discover themselves in faith and to wonder at the mystery that unites us all!
I look forward to seeing you!
