Children & Families

A community who grows...

At. St. Luke’s we wholeheartedly encourage children to be in worship with their families. We believe children learn to worship within the community of faith; which includes all of us. We recognize that children might get the wiggles and feel the need to move about during worship; please know that is ok. To help you during these times, we have provided a “Kid’s Corner” station in the Narthex. There you will find Children’s Worship Folders, crayons, books and helpful tips.

Pre-K through 5th grade offerings

St. Luke’s Church strives to provide an atmosphere where children can feel safe, valued, loved, and be nurtured in their growing relationship with Jesus. The goal of the Children & Family Ministry Team is also to help children deepen their relationship with God, learn about the love and grace of Jesus Christ, and become active members in the church. COVID Procedures for Fall 2021: It is the Diocese of West Texas and St. Luke’s Church policy that all children 3 and up and all adults who work with children (paid or volunteer) are required to wear a facemask indoors. Posters are being posted outside each classroom door. Click here for more details.

Pre-K – 3rd Grade Godly Play Class in Room 202

Godly Play curriculum follows our liturgical calendar while highlighting stories of how God has shown His love to His people over time. Our time together typically includes a time to check in with each other, listen to a bible story followed by sharing what we all notice and wonder, then choosing work/play that help express personal connections. This respectful format is foundational to how we approach all Sunday school classes. For more information about this approach and how you can connect to the stories as a family at home, visit https://www.godlyplayfoundation.org/   

4th and 5th Journey through the Bible in Room 215

Journey with us through the whole Bible in two years in an exciting interactive class. Students will journey in a short two-year through every Book from Genesis to Revelation. Students will be challenged in amazing ways to know where to find stories, seek understanding, and most importantly, look up verses in the Bible. The Students will test their skills against each other in fun ways and most importantly against their parents in May. Come join us for the journey and see the Bible like you never imagined!
