Let the Children Come To Me

Sunday Morning

Sunday mornings are filled with joyful noise at Saint Luke’s. Here’s why:

8:30 Worship

Younger children will enjoy playing in our nursery, while older children will enjoy the intimate worship setting, which includes “Tell Us Our Story”. Children of all ages will find worship notebooks and kid-friendly Bibles on the tables just outside our beautiful chapel.

9:30 September – May Sunday School

Godly Play Baptism Story

 

 

 

 

Preschool Ages

Our three-year-olds, PreK students and Kindergarten students will be fascinated with Godly Play – an imaginative and hands-on series of Bible lessons. Each story is told with simple manipulative wood figures and fabrics, brilliantly scripted to encourage questions and imaginative conversations. Lessons follow the church year so children gain a sense of “how the church tells time”. Bible stories are enriched by coloring sheets, art projects, and music time.

For more information about Godly Play, please consult this link.

Elementary Grades

Children in first through fifth grades gather at 9:30 in “The Dock”, upstairs in Sheppard Hall, Room 212. We have fifteen minutes of catching up with each other and a brief time of musical praise before dividing into our class groups at 9:45.

At 9:45, our fourth and fifth graders depart for “The Lighthouse”, Room 209, where they will dive into “Connect”, a quirky video-based Bible series created especially for pre-teens. For more information about “Connect”, consult  this link.

This group also engages in lively discussions and embarks on all sorts of creative classroom endeavors.

Our first, second, and third graders remain in the Dock for the video Bible story from “Holy Moly”, our light-hearted yet thought-provoking series for younger elementary students. After the clever video version of the story, we break into smaller groups for scripture reading, discussion, and fun activities.

First Grade students go across the hall (after the video) to “The Harbor”, which is in Room 213.

Second and Third Grade children move from the viewing area to the classroom area in “The Dock”.

Parents pick up from the age-level classrooms at 10:30.

10:30 Worship

Child Care continues for younger children. We do encourage children to worship with us in the sanctuary, which is supplied with children’s worship bulletins and worship notebooks.  “Tell Us Our Story” is eagerly anticipated each week by children of all ages.

Faithful Friends – During the school year (September through May) we have a worship exploration class that begins after “Tell Us Our Story” for children in Kindergarten, First, and Second Grades. Our Faithful Friends will love the “Whirl” lesson series, which keeps them busy learning about the Bible and about worship. For more information about “Whirl”, consult this link.

This class meets upstairs in “The Harbor” (Room 213 of Sheppard Hall), and parents may pick up their Faithful Friends at the conclusion of 10:30 worship.

Child Care – Saint Luke’s provides child care for children each Sunday morning from 8:15 until 12:15. We hire screened, professional caregivers who love serving the families of our church. Nursery classrooms are all located in Sheppard Hall. We ask that parents complete an information/authorization form for each child so that we may be aware of special needs and allergies. Forms are available in sign-in notebooks and at the desk in Sheppard Hall.
