YOUTH MINISTRY

Here at St. Luke's we have more than 25 Organizations. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when joining one of our ministry programs. We believe that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool when growing to be more like Jesus. The encouragment of others is a powerful thing.

Liturgicual Dance Group

The Episcopal Church Women is an association whose purpose is uniting the women of the
Diocese in a program of worship, study, service, gifts and fellowship, which will deepen and strengthen their own spiritual lives. All Episcopal women are members of the E.C.W.

We meet the 2nd Sunday of each month after the 7:30 am service.

Children's Chior

The Gospel Chorus was formed approximately four and a half years ago as a supplement for adults to the Junior Gospel Group. Their main purpose is to praise God within the church in Gospel and song, as well as outside the church as a missionary arm, and to be a vibrant part of the church’s ministry.

Rehearsals are held on Tuesday at 7:30 pm.

Girls' Friendly Society

This organization was formed in 1978 and is the main visitation group of St. Luke’s Primary Duty – visiting and praying with the sick and shut-ins, whether home-bound, in hospital, nursing homes or other health-related facility.

We also have an annual breakfast and bus outing, and deliver flowers and harvest baskets to the sick and shut-ins.
We welcome anyone committed and dedicated to our ideas.

We meet the 1st Thursday of each month at 7:30 pm.

Steel Band

Men-on a Mission was formed out of the Million Man March 15 years ago. Our goal and prime
mission over the years has been to raise funds for the proposed Father Walker Community Center building fund.
This organization is committed to the community and to our church. For many years we have sponsored an Oldies but Goodies night in January on the eve of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday celebration, and our Annual Gospel-Jazz concert in May. Funds raised from these events are distributed as scholarship grants. In 2010,
Men On A Mission awarded seven scholarships and have made contributions to different funds. We are appealing to Men to join us on our Mission.

We meet the 1st Monday of each month at 7:30 pm.

Sunday School

The Nursing and Allied Outreach of St. Luke’s was organized in 1979 by Mrs. Ethel Quinlan (past president). The group’s objective is to avail ourselves spiritually and physically to the needs of the church and community.

Our goals are

  • Promoting and maintaining mental and physical wellness through preventative health education.
  • Enhancing fellowship among ourselves.

 

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in our objectives. Membership is comprised of nurses and other allied field of discipline.

We meet the 2nd Sunday after the 7:30 am service.

YAM

The Parish Council was formulated years ago as the number of the organizations in the church increased, and there developed the need to organize the yearly events and to coordinate efforts. Consequently the Parish Council now constitutes representatives of the Vestry who chairs the meetings, and the
participation of heads of all the organizations who attend the meetings. They will get a sense of the annual calendar of events which they in turn share with their respective organizations, and also advise the council about concerns from the congregation.

The parish Council meets the last Thursday of every other month at 7:30 pm.
