Shifts in Discipleship at St. Luke
We are excited to share with you that we have been dreaming big about Discipleship at St. Luke and what our future holds. Pastor Brian will be sharing much of the vision for this area in a sermon series starting this Sunday, January 5. You’ll want to be sure you attend, but if you can’t make it, listen to it online! For now, what you need to know is that we are shifting one piece of the overall Discipleship picture this February, our Wednesday night ministry.
Our St. Luke Leadership Teams have evaluated our Wednesday night ministry, and we have discovered what you probably already knew: People’s time, needs, and schedules have shifted. In recognition of this, and in order to be the best stewards possible of our resources, we are making two significant changes to Wednesday nights at St. Luke:
One is that our team has discerned that it is time to shift our focus from offering many different classes to offering fewer adult classes but with more focused areas of study. The classes we will offer are the ones we think it’s a high priority for folks at St. Luke to take, and we believe they are top-notch curricula. Our youth and children’s programming will continue as they have in the past, but this spring we will offer two adult classes.
The other change is that because we have had fewer St. Luke folks participating in our meal, we will not be offering a meal on Wednesday nights this spring. We know this decision will impact some people both with St. Luke as well as our God’s Pantry guests; trust that we will be discerning what this area of ministry might look like in the future.
Wednesday nights at St. Luke will begin on February 5 and will run up until Easter. Stay tuned for more information on our classes, and make sure you are here for the sermon series beginning on January 5. We look forward to what God has in store for us as we unashamedly pursue Jesus Christ together!
