SLY, Jr. (St. Luke's Youth Junior) is St. Luke's United Methodist Church's 5th & 6th grade service & fun club. We meet throughout the school year - usually twice a month. See our calendar below. Usually we check in and then take part in the Youth Dinner on Sunday evenings at 5:30pm ($2 donation) in the Youth Room then move over to Goliath for an evening of faith development activities, games and fun! We also participate in service projects, lock-ins, outings and we even partner with SLY (7th-12th graders) occasionally. Join us! And bring a friend!
