ERD - Hurricane Response

Your contributions to Episcopal Relief and Development will help! Many of the communities in Michael and Florence’s path were impacted by Hurricane Matthew in 2016, and the recovery process from that storm continues. One of the lessons from Matthew was the devastating impact that these storms can have on particularly vulnerable communities where at-risk populations can lose not only their homes but their sources of income as well. Episcopal Relief & Development is collaborating with affected dioceses in East Carolina and North Carolina as they begin planning how to help those most in need. Together, the US Disaster team and diocesan leaders are assessing how to support these communities with critical supplies including food and clean water.

Please continue to pray for those impacted by Hurricane Florence. You can make an on-line donation to the Hurricane Relief Fund to help.

Celebrating Ministry with Children and Youth

Saint Luke's Church School UnderwayChurch School

Church School has reopened after the Summer break. All children of school age are invited for faith formation and fun as we explore Bible stories, sacraments, the seasons of the Church year, service to others, and the teachings of Christ through a variety of age appropriate activities and discussion. Class starts at 10:15 each Sunday. We have two age groups, one for younger children which meets in the classroom below the nave, while older kids gather in the Lower Parish Hall. Children are welcome to join whichever class they feel more comfortable in, as our age ranges of Pre-K through 3rd grade for the younger class, and 4th grade and up for the older group are simply suggestions. The older class follows a lectionary based curriculum, while the younger class focuses on key Old Testament stories in the Fall, moving on the the New Testament in the Spring. Kids are welcome to join the class at any point during the year, and are encouraged to attend even if it's only possible for your family to come to church sporadically, as each lesson is self-contained. For children younger than Sunday School age, the staffed nursery is available during the 10:30 service for your family to make use of in whatever way meets your needs. Please contact Emily Taylor at erwtaylor@gmail.com for more information.

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

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.
