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.
