Weekly Programming

EYC

Episcopal Youth Community, or EYC, is what we call our Sunday evening youth program. We meet at 6:00 pm and finish at 7:30 pm in Youth Commons. EYC gives us an opportunity to worship together, play together, and share a meal together! We end every EYC with an Order of Compline, which is an evening prayer that brings us all together for a time of reverence and quiet. All are welcome!

Sunday School

We offer Sunday school for Junior and Senior high from 9:30-10:15 am on Sunday mornings in Youth room A. During the Sunday School hour, we take the scripture assigned to the lectionary for that day and analyze it through an ancient form of study called Lectio Divina. This process makes us more engaged with the Eucharist and helps us to really understand what we’re listening to each Sunday morning at church.

Wednesday Night Church

Dinner is available on Wednesday night from 5:00-6:00 pm in Graham Hall. After sharing a meal together, the youth go to Youth Commons for study hall and conversation from 6:00-7:00 pm. We enjoy this time for fellowship together! All are welcome!

Life Groups

Life Groups give our youth an opportunity to dig deeper in scripture and develop a confident, independent relationship with God. Our Life Groups are available to all 7th-12th graders, and have varying meeting times. If you are interested in joining one, please email Betsy at bcobb@saint-lukes.com.

Acolytes

Here at Saint Luke’s we have a booming Acolyte program! Our teams are nicknamed after MLB teams and our Acolyte Leaders are the MVPs! Acolytes play an integral role in our Sunday worship services.  Please email bcobb@saint-lukes.com if you have any questions. *We will have an Acolyte training day on Sunday, August 18, 2019 for ALL current acolytes and acolyte leaders after the 10:30 am service. See link for current acolyte schedule below:
