Children and Youth
We believe that learning, worshiping, teaching, and growing with children and youth of all ages is an important part of our faith life. There are opportunities for children of all ages to learn together at St. Luke’s.
St. Luke’s offers a regular Children’s Chapel ministry for families with young children during the 10:00 a.m. service. Teachers and children leave for Children’s Chapel from the Church directly after the Eucharist with their families (around 10:45 a.m.) While in chapel, children hear a Bible story, participate in activities, and pray together. Children’s Chapel ends during the first part of Coffee Hour (around 11:20) in the Parish Hall, when the children may enjoy fellowship and a snack.
St. Luke’s follows all Safe Church policies recommended by the Episcopal Church, and parents are always welcome to attend chapel with their children. If you would like to learn more about these ministries, please contact us.
Children’s Worship Space
St. Luke’s is a family-friendly parish that always welcomes children of all ages to worship during regular and special services. There is a special area for families in the last row of the church that provides a little extra room with books and toys for young ones at the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Sunday worship and during special services. It is conveniently located next to the narthex, which has glass doors and can be used as a cry room during the service.
On the first Sunday of each month, children and parents are invited to remain in the sanctuary together and listen to a brief adult homily in place of the sermon, followed by a children’s homily at the Offertory. All children and parents are welcome to come forward and participate during this time.
