The youth and children of our church participate in all aspects of our life together. The children help light candles in the service, help bless new and departing members, and take part in the theme of every service through the Theme Talk.
Parents find support for their most important jobs through the LIFE groups of the church, from the teachers in our Children’s Celebration, and in our worship together.
We invite all members and friends of St. Luke to join one of our LIFE groups. The acronym stands for Living In Faith Everyday.
You may want to start with the New Members’ Class, which meets with the pastor. These classes are a chance to learn about the faith, get to know other members, and to explore your particular faith journey. Then continue your faith journey through one of these regular groups:
Parents’ LIFE Group: Meets the second Sunday of the month at 11:30 a.m. Childcare is provided, along with Bible study and parenting support. Coordinator: Adrienne Lucas.
Exercising Our Faith LIFE Group: Meets every first and third Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. for yoga stretching and spiritual support. Coordinator: Marilyn Arnott, (610) 291-4801.
Women’s Upper Room: Meets Tuesday mornings from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for Bible study and lunch.
College Students’ LIFE Group: Meets according to students’ schedule for dinner, Bible study, and personal support, a “home away from home.” Coordinator: Elaine McDermott, 610.337.1718
Men’s Breakfast LIFE Group: Meets for breakfast the first Sunday of every month at 8:15 AM before the morning worship. Coordinator: Jon Cumming, 610-764-1705
Sunday Bible Study: Our schedule will be announced. The study is held after the church service and includes a discussion about the themes of the morning service and prayer.
Alcoholics Anonymous: An AA group meets Wednesday evenings at 7:30 in the church parlor.
Volunteers prepare food and serve those in need at Grace Cafe at the Arch Street UMC. They, also, assist the Mary Jane Enrichment Center, where hot meals, groceries, and shelter are offered.
In support of the St. Luke property, members provide gardening and maintenance, the sound system, and preparing the Sunday Keynote (visual guidance to follow along with the Service).
If you have an idea for a new LIFE Group or volunteer ministry at St. Luke, please talk to Pastor David.
