St. Luke’s Church is committed to doing its part in providing a spiritual foundation for its children.
We get wonderful age-appropriate ideas for teaching the children about God and Jesus and the Bible from the Episcopal Church School teaching series called Living the Good News.
Our mission in the classrooms is to guide the children in their understanding of who they are, why they are special, who is Christ, how they relate to Christ and how through Christ they relate to the world. We do this through a variety of methods, including Bible stories, art projects, games, and gospel readings.
Our goal is to prepare our children for the future, armed with the knowledge of Jesus’ teachings, power and love!
