SUNDAY MORNING

SUNDAY SCHOOL

At St. Luke's, children age 2–6th grade are welcome to Sunday School to learn Bible stories and experience what it means to know God through multi-sensory experiences. We offer a sacred place for children to share their story and learn about others and experience spiritual moments to connect with God. And we have fun! Come join us.
REGISTER Online Here
We have 4 different Sunday School options and you can join in at any point during the year:

9:30am Sunday School: Preschool "Joy Trek" (ages 2-4)
Joy Trek is our 9:30am Sunday School program for children age 2-4. Children will learn a Bible story over 2-5 weeks of lessons. Each Sunday they will hear the story, do a craft, participate in music and sacred sharing moments and have something to bring home. Contact Ms. Sam for more information.

9:30am Sunday School: Elementary "PEAK Adventures" (kindergarten-4th grade)
PEAK Adventures is our 9:30am Sunday School program for children K-grade 4. Each week children will learn a Bible story in a different way through our workshop rotation model. Over 3-5 weeks, the children will learn the story through workshops such as Art, Cinema, Cooking, Games, Sciene and Storytelling. Children also will be able to participate in music and large group time as well. Contact Ms. Sharon for more information.

9:30am Sunday School: Elementary "Tweens" (5th & 6th grade)
Tweens ROCK
is our 9:30am Sunday School program for children in grades 5 & 6. This program is part of our Tween Scene Ministry and is a time to learn about the Bible and explore questions.  Contact Ms. Sharon for more information.

11:00am Sunday School: "Godly Play" (preschool-6th grade)
Godly Play is our Sunday morning program for children in preschool up to grade 6 during the 11:00am worship service. Godly Play includes a lesson told in interactive story format and learning stations and crafts for children to further their experience of the story. Contact Ms. Sam for more information.

VISITORS and those who have not registered for the year, please check in at the Superintendent Station at the bottom of the main stairs when you arrive.

HOLY LISTENING
To further our mission of caring for the spiritual lives of our children, St. Luke's is now offering the opportunity for a child to meet with a Holy Listener during 9:30am Sunday School. A Holy Listener (HL), through our recently acquired First Steps program, is a St. Luke's adult volunteer who has been trained in the First Steps methodology. This methodology is not professional counseling but is the spiritual gift of listening to a child in a special way using tools that allow them to feel God's presence and comfort. A sign will be out on those Sunday mornings to indicate that a HL is available to meet with a child who might be experiencing a crisis of any sort (divorce of parents, loss of a loved one, moving to a new school/home, illness, bullying, transition, death of a pet, family financial or health difficulties, etc.) in their life. The short meeting could be a one time event or ongoing. (Our Safe Sanctuary policy would apply to make sure all parties are meeting in a secure, safe and welcoming environment.) Parents can request that a HL meet with their child that morning through our Staff or the Superintendent and will be informed if a meeting occurs. Any information shared will be held in confidence within our Holy Listening Team.
