Adults

 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 have classes that are selected to help your faith deepen and your relationship with God grow.

St. Luke’s offers 3 different group types:

Sermon Studies: these groups meet for the duration of a St. Luke’s sermon series to discuss the current sermons subjects and themes.  These classes are open to everyone!

Group Studies:  these groups meet to study a specific curriculum, book of the bible, or other material outside of the themes of the sermon series.  This includes classes such as Disciple, Dave Ramsay’s Financial Peace University (FPU) and Legacy Journey, and Christian Believer.

Covenant Group Studies: these groups are long term groups that choose to be together for all aspects of Christian life (worship, connect, grow, and serve).  These groups begin and end at the determination of their members. If you would like to start a covenant group, contact Pastor Jad Denmark, for more information.

Shameless

Join Pastor Jenn and the Sisters of the Soul for this book study Thursday nights in-person or on Zoom starting at 7:00 p.m. Negative messages about sex come from all corners of society: from the church, from the media, from our own families. As a result, countless people have suffered pain, guilt, and judgement. In this instant bestseller, Nadia Bolz-Webber unleashes her critical eye and her vulnerable yet hopeful soul on the harmful conversations about sex that have fed our shame.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS

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.
