“Learning is like breathing: it involves a taking in and processing of experience and a putting out or expression of what is learned.” - David A . Kolb
One way God intensifies His relationship with us is by immersing us in the study of His Word. At St. Luke’s, our identity flows out of activities and conversations centered in God’s Word. We offer opportunities for reflecting, action, thinking and feeling in the context of Christian learning that bring us closer to a deep, personal relationship with Christ.
These communities of learning foster the development of ongoing spiritual growth, deeper relationships and a yearning for more. The goal? To develop a deep abiding sense of God's presence and activity that shows itself in all aspects of life.
Explorations is a class especially intended for adults who are interested in exploring the meaning of faith in Jesus Christ and how they can grow in their faith at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church.
