Sunday Morning Programs

Joy Trek is our 9:30am Sunday School program for PreK-Kindergarten children (age approx. 2-5) to learn a Bible story each week. Each Sunday they will hear the story, do a craft and sacred sharing moments and have something to bring home. Contact Sam Leahy for more information.

PEAK Adventures (Purposeful Experiences & Activities for Kids) is our 9:30am Sunday School program for children in grades 1-6. Each week children will learn a Bible story and do an activity such as Art, Cinema, Cooking, Games, Science and Storytelling. Children may also participate in music time as well. Contact Sharon Oliver for more information.


Holy Listening
To further our mission of caring for the spiritual lives of our children, St. Luke's offers a Holy Listener (HL), a St. Luke's adult who has been trained in the spiritual gift of listening to a child in a special way using tools that allow them to feel God's presence and comfort. It is not professional counseling but an opportunity to share God's loving presence 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 through our Staff and will be informed if a meeting occurs. Any information shared will be held in confidence within our Holy Listening Team.
