Mission Statement:
In caring for the children of St. Luke's and their families, we seek to nurture and develop faithful loving lives, modeled after the Love, Acceptance, Justice, and Hope of Jesus, through relationship and learning. We strive to create sacred spaces and experiences for children to discover and share our principles of GRACE, COURAGE, WONDER & BEYOND inspired by God's love.

Why We Exist:
Because of the life and teachings of Jesus, we exist to deepen people's connections with God, show compassion for all, and reflect God's love in a way that changes lives.

Our Principles:
Grace - Because all have received God's grace, we in turn are called to extend to others respect, compassion, acceptance and love.
Courage - We take risks by welcoming different viewpoints, engaging in difficult conversations, and moving beyond comfort zones.
Wonder - Faith is a journey, not a destination. Wonder and curiosity inspire us to embrace the journey and explore the mysteries of God.
Beyond - God invites us to move beyond the self to others, beyond the norm to the new, and beyond our walls to the world.

Scriptures that Guide our Ministry

Mark 10:14: Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs."

Matthew 18:1-5 (NRSV): At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, 'Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?' He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, 'Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.

Ephesians 4:1-16 (NRSV)
