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.
Church-wide Sunday Night Bible Study

This class will include a lecture style presentation by a biblical scholar followed by a question & answer / discussion session with St. Luke’s pastors and other members of the Candler Foundry team. This will kick off each week as St. Lukers will be able to preview and engage with the scriptures throughout the week prior to the Sunday Sermon. Classes are Sunday evenings starting at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom. Jump in any time!
Wednesdays on Campus – Join is in the Attic of Building C at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays for a chance to connect with other St. Lukers, watch some highlights from the Sunday Night Bible Study, and hear stories about how St. Lukers are living out their faith. Afterwards, attendees will move to their assigned rooms to continue the discussion in their Life Together groups.

A Disciple’s Path
A program that guides individuals to take the next step in discipleship and become dynamic, engaged followers of Jesus Christ. Whether you are new to Christianity or Methodism, interested in deconstructing your faith, or just want to get down to the basics, this class is for you!

Book Studies for Women:
Join Pastor Jenn and the Sisters of the Soul for this book study Thursday nights in-person or on Zoom at 7:00 p.m. starting September 30. Drawing on the best in recent scholarship and using her well honed literary expertise, Evans examines Bible stories and interpretations, wrestles through the process of doubting, imagining, and debating, and discovers the Bible is not a static work but is a living, breathing, captivating, and confounding book that is able to equip us to join God’s loving and redemptive work in the world.

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.
This assessment helps you discover and define the special abilities God has given you according to his spiritual purpose for your life.
