Youth & Family
Faith formation, leadership development, service projects, vibrant youth and family ministry – yes, Saint Luke has it and you are invited! For details and further questions, contact Youth and Family Coordinator, Liz Garifo, Director of Children’s Ministry, Melissa Groen.
The mission? To equip young people, families, and parents, to live every day as disciples of Jesus Christ. Young people and young families are the church NOW, and equal disciples of Christ. We seek to nurture them, challenge them, and help them discern God’s voice in each moment of their lives.
The care? We treat all young people as children of God who have differing gifts and styles of learning. We welcome all youth and their families who are not presently part of a faith community
