Children’s full participation is welcome in all aspects of St. Luke’s life and worship. For those who would like the option, St. Luke’s provides a nursery each Sunday from 9am to noon (September – May) for infants and young children. The nursery is a large room located on the second floor of our parish hall, and is equipped with age-appropriate toys, books and a crib. Our nursery attendant leads the little children in a lesson based on the Sunday gospel. She is trained in first aid and CPR.
The Sunday forum is an adult faith formation opportunity held on select Sundays from 9:30am – 10:15am. We engage in dvd-led study and dialogue on various pertinent topics. Previous conversations have featured the thinking of biblical scholar N.T. Wright, theological commentator Phyllis Tickle, spiritual writer Richard Rohr, O.F.M, and journalist Francis Spufford. Coffee always is served.
Adult bible study gathers each Wednesday at 7pm in the Parish Library. We begin with quiet meditation and then proceed to read and explore the word of God. Our study focuses on the lectionary readings for the upcoming Sunday. Our rector David usually leads Bible study.
During Lent, we begin an hour earlier (6pm) with Stations of the Cross and a light supper, followed by conversation. During the last couple of years, we have enjoyed reflecting on John August Swanson’s artistic rendering of moments from Jesus’ life, suffering, death and resurrection.
