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.

New Classes This Month:

The Book of Longings

“The Will of God” by Leslie Weatherhead
During World War II, London was shattered by unrelenting bombs dropped by Nazi Germany. Millions of buildings were destroyed or damaged, tens of thousands of civilians were killed, and survivors were left to ask: How can this destruction be part of God’s plan? Join us for these 5 sessions facilitated by Dr. Bill Barnes! This class will meet Sundays at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom starting on April 11.

Living the Questions 2
If you have ever wished for a class where you could be totally honest about your questions and even doubts about the Christian faith tradition in which you may have grown up, this class is for you. This class will meet Sundays at 5:30 p.m. on Zoom starting April 11.

 

The Last Days of Jesus
Join us for this six-week study from the Deeper Connection Series starting Tuesday April 13. We’ll meet In-Person in Building C and follow all St. Luke’s Covid Safety Protocols.

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.

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

Understanding Your Spiritual Gifts: Revealing the Kingdom at St. Luke’s

Join us on Sunday, February 21 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.  for this session as we discuss spiritual gifts, individual styles, and upcoming opportunities to serve in our congregation and community.
