Faith Formation at St. Luke’s looks a little different than it used to. In addition to our weekly worship services that are offered online, in-person, and in cars, we also have safe and socially-distant opportunities for Sunday School and Bible Study.
Faith Formation Opportunities
Sidewalk Sunday School
Children and their families at St. Luke’s are invited to join us for a once-a-month Sidewalk Sunday School in the back parking lot at 9:30AM between the services. All are asked to wear masks as we meet together for games and activities to learn God’s Word together.
St. Luke’s Youth
Middle and High School Youth gather in-person on Sundays at 3PM for various activities, including Confirmation Classes, Youth Group Games and Devotions. All wear facemasks, just like they do at school. Youth also gather on Wednesday evenings twice a month for games through Zoom.
Our Augsburg Sunday School Class meets every Sunday morning via Zoom at 11:30AM. Our Wired Word Class and Women’s Monday Bible Study continue to send out a weekly email with a lesson that all can read at home and discuss. If you’d like to be added to our Zoom Sunday School or email lists, please contact the Church Office.
St. Luke’s men’s group meets monthly at Azalea Park for Coffee and Conversation together.
The ladies at St. Luke’s meet for various weekly activities through Zoom, including trivia nights, parties, and monthly WELCA meetings.
Faith Formation At-Home
How do you live out your faith and teach it to your children? St. Luke’s has created some materials to help you grow in faith while at home during this Pandemic.
Weekly Bible Stories
Watch Dani’s weekly Bible stories to go with the readings for each Sunday:
Kitchen Table VBS
This Curriculum was developed by our Director of Faith Formation, Dani Vogel, and was crafted especially during this time of Social Distancing for families to share in the comfort of their own homes. Each set of material includes five Vacation Bible School lessons with activities to help your family connect and grow in faith.

Movie Bible Studies
Looking for a faith-based activity to do at home during Quarantine? Feeling like you can relate to characters like Rapunzel in her tower, Moana on her island, Elsa locked in her room, or Anna talking to the paintings on her wall? Dani Vogel, our Director of Faith Formation, has written some Movie Bible Studies that give you a great excuse to kick back and watch a movie together and then relate it to a Bible story. These Bible studies along with the DVD are available to check out from our church office, or if you already own the movie or are able to access/stream it from your home, and are accompanied with discussion questions. 18 different studies are available now, including Avengers, Frozen and Frozen 2, Monsters University, Indiana Jones, The Princess Bride, AntMan along with its own AntMan Quarantine Challenge, and more! Click on the link below to access the Discussion Questions.
During Quarantine, we can still help our neighbors. If you are interested in serving with us even as we are apart, you may sign up with our church office as a volunteer to help deliver groceries or needed essentials to those who are most vulnerable.
Since this is a time when so many are without work and are in need, you might also consider donating to our Little Food Pantry, which is located out on the church lawn. Click below to see a list of ideas to help fill our pantry.
Daily Prayer Gatherings
Join our South Carolina Bishop, Reverend Herman Yoos, our Bishop’s Assistant, Reverend Ginny Aebischer, and Reverend Rick Carter, SC Synod’s Director for Evangelical Mission for a few minutes of prayer, scripture and reflection every weekday at 10AM. You are invited to light a candle during these daily gatherings, and you will be offered an opportunity to share your prayer requests with them.
