Education and formation
We are always seeking to deepen our faith, theological understanding, and grasp of Scripture. At St. Luke’s, there is a learning opportunity for people of all ages and levels of interest. For more information about any of these classes or programs, please contact us.
Scripture and Theology Study Group
This weekly class is held in the Parish Hall from 9:00 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. on Sundays.
A series will usually last for about four Sundays, but drop-ins are always welcome. Topics range from introductory theology to world religions, the prayerbook, spirituality, Christian tradition, and history. Class is discussion based, and people of all backgrounds and experience are welcome.
Contemplative Practice Study Group
St. Luke’s Contemplative Practice Study Group meets weekly to deepen our spiritual practice and explore aspects of the contemplative life. Our primary focus in developing deeper insight into the spiritual life is through a daily practice of Centering Prayer. We explore the rich history, meaning and specific instructions on Centering Prayer and, at the same time, examine the wisdom reflected by various other spiritual practices. This group meets at 5:45 PM on Wednesdays, before the 7:00 PM Candlelight Centering Prayer service, and hosts occasional retreats and field trips.
No experience with meditation or Centering Prayer is required to participate in this study group! For more information about this group, please contact us.

Education for Ministry (EFM) is a four-year course in theology, Scripture, and church history. Classes are based on small-group study and practice and run on a one-year cycle, open for enrollment yearly in the fall. For more information, visit the EFM website.
