OVERVIEW

(For infants through to sixth grade)

For the LORD is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and his faithfulness continues to each generation.” (Psalm 100:5)

The Children’s Ministries of St. Luke's Anglican Church aims to provide a safe, clean, loving Christian environment where every child feels valuable. This involves:

  • Worship at the child’s understanding and maturity level
  • A place to come and learn, pray and fellowship together
  • A place to share with friends.

The end goal is that our children be strong in the faith, growing in the knowledge of God and abounding in love for others in order that they would grow up to be disciples who know Christ and can make him known.

Childrens ministries offers Sunday morning worship programs year round.

PROGRAMS

Junior Church

The children from grade one through six continue to explore the many facets of God’s love through the Bible stories in both the Old and New Testaments. A vibrant and musically fun way to worship God through music is provided by the music ministers that are volunteering their time to enrich the lives of our St. Luke’s children.

Little Church (ages 3 - Kindergarten)

Many activities are planned around the Bible stories that are presented each week; Bible songs with hand motions, coloring, crafts, healthy snacks, and the use of felt boards in retelling the stories. The review of animal sounds, colors, and the various types of fruit are used to thank God for his bountiful creation.

Nursery Care

Our loving staff provides our very young children a safe, interesting and developmental play experience. Available from 9:15-11:30am.

Acolytes

Young people who serve the Lord by assisting the priest at the altar.

Angel Breakfast

Held a Saturday in December from 8:30 am to 11:00 am is our annual Angel Breakfast. Angels will be among us to serve breakfast and sing about the joy they have at Christmas time. Children and their families will be escorted by angels to various stations to enjoy crafts, play time, and hear the story of the Nativity.  Each child will receive a gift bag to remember the special morning. Everyone is welcome!

Communion Class

These classes are for kids 2nd grade through 6th grade.  The class will offer an opportunity for children to understand the meaning of the Eucharist and continue to develop their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Contact Kaydi Draney at paigefern@aol.com or 818-957-2979.

St. Nicholas Day

This is a favorite tradition here at St. Luke's. St. Nicholas visits St. Luke's and the children bring a new, unwrapped toy to church to give to St. Nicholas for other children less fortunate than ourselves.  These toys will be donated to the World Impact Toy Store, which allows neighborhood families in the inner city to purchase donated toys at a minimal cost. This gives the families a sense of self worth as opposed to viewing themselves as a charity case.

Montrose Christmas Parade

The first Saturday in December. We have warrior angels carrying a banner proclaiming 'Unto you a child is born' marching ahead of a float with kids in nativity costumes.
