STEP 2: STEPS Groups

Are you looking to connect with others at St. Luke’s and grow in your faith? One of the best ways to do that this fall is to join a STEPS Group. Steps is a 6-week small group experience that will help you see your own faith story, understand how we live out our Christian faith at St. Luke's, and find ways to grow in your faith in this church community. You discover answers to questions like: Who is Jesus? Why is my faith important? What is Biblical justice? And more! There are groups for all ages and stages of life, and there are online and in-person options.  

STEP 3: Exploring Membership

Sunday, February 13 | 12:15-2:45PM | Great Hall
Sunday, May 1 | 12:15-2:45PM | Great Hall

The Exploring Membership Class will help you learn more about the United Methodist Church and the process for formally joining St. Luke's. Here you'll learn more about who we are, our beliefs, and our mission to be an affirming community of Christians helping people find and give hope through Jesus Christ - regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, or socioeconomic background. You'll also get to hear the story of our church and discuss what it means to be a member of this local congregation through serving, growing in your faith journey, moving toward generosity, and more. The class runs from 12:15 - 2:45PM. Lunch will be served in the Great Hall. Childcare available. Please note childcare needs on the registration form.

We have dozens of ways for you to connect at St. Luke's!
