Adult Christian Formation

Growing spiritually through regular and meaningful personal Bible study is vital. Christianity is meant to be relational—first, between ourselves and God and, second, between ourselves and those around us. Small group Bible studies move us from being spectators in a weekly church service to active participants in a like-minded community dedicated to spiritual growth. St. Luke’s offers weekly Bible study classes at various times

St. Luke’s offers a variety of programs during the week in the form of education programs, book studies, and fellowship events. These programs are led by either St. Luke’s clergy, lay members of the congregation, or outside speakers. Since our Christian Formation opportunities during the week vary, be sure to check the events page for the current programs and times.

Contemplative Prayer

Wednesday Mornings at 7 a.m. and Mondays at noon (choose one)

Many of us at St. Luke’s are pursuing a deeper, more frequent spiritual awareness or are seeking a more mystical sensitivity for the first time.  There are many paths to heightened spiritual awareness.  We Episcopalians are well-versed in common prayer, and many of us pursue a private devotional path as well.  As telescopes and microscopes enhance different aspects of our view of the physical world, varied spiritual disciplines enable us to appreciate the spiritual world more fully.  In addition to prayer there are meditation, fasting, music, and yoga, for a few examples.

We have been meeting at the church for over three years on Wednesday at 7 am, and a second group on Monday at noon.  We begin with twenty minutes of silence followed by discussion of readings from Thomas Merton, G.K. Chesterton, Christina Rossetti, and the like.  Please contact me with any questions regarding our groups.

The Prodigal God—Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith

 Wednesdays, 10:30am Beginning March 13 - Parish Hall

Author Timothy Keller uses the parable of the prodigal son to reveal an unexpected message of hope and salvation.  Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way. Contact Loretta Russell Hoffmann for more info. lrhcog@aol.com

Spiritual Deepening & Fellowship

Sunday’s 9:15 - 10:15am - Library

Our Journey Through Lent Lent reminds us that this is the season to turn away from our worldly distractions and journey home to God. This should be a time of inner reflection, and at the end of the Lenten journey we should expect to find ourselves at a different place spiritually than when we started. The following Sunday discussions provide tools for your journey.

Join us each Sunday in the Library for thought-provoking conversation.
