Formation for Families
Saturday, December 2, 2023, 9:30 AM
Join other St. Luke's families, volunteers, and invited guests for a morning full of robust learning, community building, and special activities for the whole family. Nursery care is available for children 0-4 years old. Parents, children and youth alike will have the option to engage in age-specific formational opportunities that will deepen and extend the application of our Sunday morning formational offerings.
Upcoming offerings for parents:
Dec. 2: "Transforming Conflict in the Family System and Beyond" Dr. Ellen Ott Marshall, Associate Professor of Christian Ethics and Conflict Transformation at Candler School of Theology, Emory University.
Saturday morning activities for children and youth are offered each session:
1. St. Luke’s Youth Portraiture Project led by Corrine Adams: Preteens and Teens explore themes of identity, perception, and belonging through portraiture. In addition to learning basic photographic skills, students will work alongside Ms. Corrine to curate a show from their own work for the St. Luke’s gallery. (Youth in grades 6-12th can sign up for this session only once during the fall Formation for Families series. Choose the "Youth Portraiture Project" option for your preferred date of attendance).
2. Bread-baking for Sunday Morning Eucharist: Children of all ages will support the St. Luke’s bread-baking team in preparing, making, and cooking the bread for Sunday morning Eucharist.
3. Chorister Rehearsal: Children and Youth Choristers will join Ms. Colleen to learn repertoire, develop skills in musicianship, and strengthen their vocal technique, all while having fun together.
4. Theater/Art Club led by Kai Price: Children and Youth foster their artistic expression and creative storytelling skills. Join Kai to learn some of the basics of acting, and collaborate with her and other students on set design and staging for this year’s Christmas Pageant.
