 St. Luke’s invites adults of all ages, no matter where they are in their faith to journey to grow deeper.  Whether you have been a part of the church for your whole life or are still trying to figure out what church is all about, we offer opportunities to help you deepen your faith and grow your relationship with God.


Church-wide Bible Study

[dys]FUNCTIONAL Relationships – Family relationships are complicated – even in the Bible. In the book of Genesis, siblings quarrel, bicker, and jostle for blessing and spouses deceive their partners in moments of crisis. What do we with biblical figures who are far from perfect? How does God factor into these complex family dynamics? How might these stories guide how we live and lead in relationship with one another today? Learn on Mondays through our weekly lectures (available on-demand wherever you get your podcasts) and then participate in a live discussion on Wednesday nights with Dr. Ryan Bonfiglio & Rev. Dr. Ebby Arnold from the Candler School of Theology as well as some of our pastors!

Spiritual Gifts are special abilities used for spiritual purposes. Of God’s design and grace, these gifts are bestowed upon us by the Holy Spirit according to God’s purpose for our lives. We each have talents that enable us to train in different fields. However, it is in the utilization of our spiritual gifts that we fulfill God’s purpose for us–in the church, in the community, and in the world. Identifying your spiritual gifts provides insight as to what you can do to achieve the most fulfillment in service.
