Our congregation enjoys many opportunities for a fellowship meal followed by engaging presentations on wide-ranging topics. Programs may cover current social issues and humanitarian concerns, as well as travel, history, or the arts. The St. Luke Men’s Group meets monthly in our fellowship hall for dinner and a guest speaker. Programs have included actors portraying noted historical figures, a biographer of well-known authors, and a bee-keeper! The St. Luke Women’s Group offers both morning and evening meetings with a meal in the fellowship hall. Programs have included strategies for de-cluttering, writing one’s own personal story, and wreath-making! Our yearly Sunday Night Lenten Fellowship Event is open to the entire congregation and their guests. A delicious chef-prepared meal is followed by an educational program tied to our yearly Lenten challenge. In addition, the Stephen Ministry Forum: Lunch and Learn, held yearly in the spring, brings in guest speakers on relevant social issues.
Group Excursions and Member-hosted Fellowship
Small group excursions to musical concerts, plays, museums, and tours are a part of the fun offered to interested members and their guests. The St. Luke Book Group has been meeting for many years in individual member homes in order to discuss a chosen book or watch a film together. New book club members are always welcome!
