Grow: “I am the vine, you are the branches” John 15:1

St. Luke’s provides opportunities for worship and spiritual growth that helps develop mature disciples of Jesus Christ. We provide opportunities for individual growth and both small and large group spiritual formation Bible studies for children, youth, and adults. These ministries will encompass the total person: body, mind, and spirit.

“Growth Groups” are places where Christians gather to study, pray, and engage in respectful, challenging conversation in order to be formed more in the image of Jesus. These are groups of various sizes and that are on-going, long-term, or short-term. They can be Bible study groups, book study groups, or utilize a DVD series for discussion. Registration is requested but not required unless specifically noted in the descriptions below

THE CREED CHURCH WIDE STUDY

What we believe about God affects how we live. This book is a beautiful contribution to a better Christianity – a Christianity that looks more like Jesus, a Christianity that is known for love again.                     – Shane Claiborne 

The word creed comes from the Latin credo which means “I believe”. So a creed is a statement of one’s beliefs, one’s theology. The Apostles Creed is one of the earliest Christian creed’s that dates back to the late 4th century. In this series we will walk through each primary article of the Apostles Creed to get us all – as a community of faith – grounded by faith in common beliefs.

 I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
