Every Child a Sacred Trust

At Saint Luke’s, Every Child is a Sacred Trust. This is true whether we are thinking of our babies and toddlers at home and here in the Nursery, the children of our Sunday Church School or the members of our Teen/Young Adult Group. Our care and joy also extends to others through the parish hosting the Angels in the Garden Childcare Center, our welcoming area youth into the Gingerbread Players, and other ongoing commitments to the wellbeing of young people—such as support for Camp DeWolfe, volunteer efforts with Saint Andrew’s Teen Shelter, and our relationship with Notre Dame de l’Annonciation School in Haiti.

•Our Nursery for infants and toddlers on the lower level of the parish hall is staffed during the 10:30 am liturgy.

Saint Luke's and Greater Forest Hills

The missional activity of Saint Luke’s Church, in support of children and families throughout the Forest Hills Community, is demonstrated through our partnership with two important programs: Angels in the Gardens Childcare Center and Thinking Cap After- School Program. The fall term for both programs begins on Tuesday, September 6th. This is the sixth year of our relationship with the childcare center and Year Two of our partnership with Thinking Cap. Through these two programs, Saint Luke’s offers families with pre-school and elementary school-aged children needed care and support services. Please keep the children, teachers, staffs and families in your prayers.
