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
