At St. Luke’s, education and nurture of community are top priorities.
We believe that we are called to understand our lives and our world in the context of our Christian faith. To that end, we intentionally foster an atmosphere of open inquiry and joint learning. A range of bible studies, seminars and discussions, workshops and excursions provide such opportunities for spiritual and intellectual growth. St. Luke’s also is a church family in which we greatly enjoy one another’s company. Throughout the year, events bring us together for many celebrations and events that provide the opportunity for fellowship and to connect with other members. All these studies and fellowship events are announced in the Sunday bulletin. Regular events include:
Bible Study – This daytime bible study group meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 10 AM at the church for conversation about scripture, faith, and daily living. The discussions are informal and newcomers are welcome.
Study Forums – Periodically, lectures and multi-week study series are offered, led by the pastors, lay leaders, or by outside leaders. Recent topics have included a presentation and discussion on the ‘Gospel of Judas,’ and a 4-week class on ‘The Judaism Jesus Knew.’
Interfaith Dialogue – St. Luke’s plays an active part in fostering interfaith relations in our community. Events have included joint worship services, book studies, and discussion forums on questions of theology, history, and rituals.
