We are excited to offer an exciting rotation for our 1st-5th students. Traditional Music Ministries and Children’s Ministry have joined forces to create a well-rounded afternoon full of music, lessons and snacks.
The St. Luke’s Children’s Choir is for children in 1st-5th grade. They are the lead choir for Children’s Sunday, and they take the lead in the musical at the end of the year. The repertoire for this choir includes more hymns of the faith, rounds, canons, and anthems. The children continue to sing in unison and are also introduced to singing in harmony. They expand their musical literacy through their anthems and singing/reading games.
RHYTHM & ART
Percussion, Hand chimes, Movement and More! We will switch out this activity every 6 week weeks.
SNACK & LESSON
The Children’s Ministry will provide a snack and short lesson during this time. Lesson will be connected to current sermon series.
Questions and Contact: If you have any questions regarding any of these programs, please email John R. Mason III

Theater & Tech Ministries
St. Luke’s has a robust technology ministry that supports every aspect of the church. While the tech department is primarily focused on worship, it also supports the Theater Ministry, the Youth Ministry and many other events around St. Luke’s. Each Sunday, a dedicated team of staff and volunteers work behind the scenes to make sure that the sound, lighting and video projection is working to support our worship services and enhance the worship experience. We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join the tech ministry! Some of the volunteer opportunities are listed below.
- Audio Engineer: Mix the audio for Contemporary Worship, Traditional Worship, Youth Worship or other special events on our campus (prior experience in audio engineering and digital audio consoles is required)
- Lighting Programmer/Operator: Program and operate lights for Contemporary Worship or other special events at St. Luke’s (prior lighting experience is preferred)
- Video Slide Operator: This is one of the most important visual aspects of our services! We use a piece of software called ProPresenter to run video slides that support the music and the message. No prior experience is required, we’ll train you on the software.
- Video Camera Operator: We live stream our services on Facebook and record our messages for later editing and uploading to the St. Luke’s website. Camera Operators help those that can’t be with us for worship attend St. Luke’s remotely. No previous experience required, we’ll train you on how to operate the camera.
If you’re interested in being involved with the tech ministry at St. Luke’s, please contact Steven Leonard at firstname.lastname@example.org
