Faith that Grows

“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.

The Story (School Cafeteria)
Leader: Jeanne Wacker 

The Story, written by Randy Frazee, is a tool to increase Biblical literacy, helping readers
understand God’s story from Genesis to Revelation and how their own stories intersect
with God’s. Consisting of 31 chapters of carefully-selected scriptures sequenced in
chronological order, The Story presents the Word of God in an engaging format, reading
like a novel. This class will be DVD based with discussions.

Christian Belief in an Age of Skepticism (Suites A&B) 
Leader: Michael Eatmon 

“Why does God allow suffering?” “How could a loving God send anyone to hell?” “Why 
isn’t Christianity more inclusive?” “How can one religion be ‘right’ and the others 
‘wrong’?” “Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God?

We live in an age of overlapping disbelief, non-belief, and unbelief. Atheists, agnostics, 
and skeptics don’t often hear satisfying answers to their most troublesome questions, 
and Christians are too often ill-prepared to provide any. 

In this course we'll look briefly not only at how one might answer these questions, but also how a Christian might do so effectively and in the life changing power of the Spirit.

Paul’s Letter to the Colossians (Suite C) 
Leader: Les Kimball

Many in our world today fail to understand the dual nature of Jesus, that He is both fully God and fully man. The philosophies of the world and the many humanistic views of life have robbed them of the joy of knowing Jesus as the Bible depicts Him and of knowing
the marvelous position believers have in Him. Come and enjoy a spirited discussion of this short, first century Epistle and gain a greater appreciation of the blessings extended to us as baptized believers in Jesus Christ.

Sacred Parenting (Media Center) 
Leader: Rhonda Betteridge 

Parenting is a school for spiritual formation—and our children are our teachers. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Gary Thomas turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us. You’ll be encouraged by stories that 
tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of raising a godly family. Grow closer to Christ and your children as you learn to: 

Freely enjoy your kids for who they are. 
Build a closer, grace-based family. 
Reduce the pressure felt for your kids to turn out perfect. 
Manage anger and negative responses towards your chi
