A Mother’s Story

By | September 25th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Leigh Williams Riley receiving his third grade Bible was the highlight of our week. The service was so special seeing our third grader walk up and receive his own personalized bible presented by Dr. Pace. It is a memory that will forever be etched in our minds. Riley enjoyed the fun Bible exploration activity the kids did at church one evening that helped to sharpen his Bible skills. We were excited that he had become somewhat familiar and comfortable with his new Bible. We didn’t realize how proficient he was until we received this wonderful note from his religion teacher at school: Mr. and [...]

A Conversation with Nick and Nathan

By | September 18th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by: Tyler Neely While I had grown up saying I was a Christian, I never actually knew Jesus or recognized that he was someone who I could have a relationship with until my senior year of high school. The first time that I learned who Jesus was, and heard that he was more than some archaic religious icon that my grandparents made me learn about, was when two of my best friends, Nick and Nathan, sat me down one night and shared their experience and faith with me. Young Life had just recently started at my school and [...]

Why I Hang Out (sort of) With the Kids

By | September 11th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Bruce Jameson A few years ago I decided to focus my efforts at St. Lukes on Student Ministries. I didn’t really have a plan, so I thought it’d be best to sit in the back of the room, listen, and watch until I figured out where my place would be. It turns out that sitting in the back of the room, listening and watching (along with going on mission trips) was the best place for me all along. Any good I can do comes from there. Now I’m an Adult Leader, a title I am proud to [...]

South Louisiana Feels the Love, St. Luke’s!

By | September 4th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

Between the 115 flood buckets, 7,674 diapers, and a team that went to Baton Rouge to muck out flooded houses, St. Luke’s lived out our Inside- Out Habit of giving ourselves away in generosity and service. While in Baton Rouge, the team had the opportunity to serve a gentleman whose house took on more than four feet of water that didn’t recede for three days. He was disabled and unable to physically take on the task of pulling out carpet and sheetrock, but he was a blessing to the team as he continually offered encouragement, warm smiles, and [...]

Finding a Beautiful Group

By | August 28th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

By Victoria Klinker About four years ago, my father Paul Gatlin was diagnosed with a brain disease called Frontal Temporal Degeneration. The lives of everyone in our family were drastically changed, but the bond of our family has only become stronger. Three years ago, my husband Matt and I were searching to find the perfect church family for our future together. Matt was raised Roman Catholic and I was a very active member of the UCC church. Together, we found St. Luke’s, and I also quickly found the United Methodist Women (UMW.) I established an instant bond with [...]

Something Very Special

By | August 21st, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

Isolation is one of the largest problems experienced by special needs families. It’s funny how it starts with you just trying to do everything you can for your child... and then, you realize you’re doing nothing for yourself and you’ve cut yourself off from others. It’s not intentional and it comes from a place of wanting to give your special needs child everything they need and not wanting to expose them to situations they can’t handle. Eventually, you don’t take vacations, you don’t attend parties, you don’t go to dinner, etc. It’s funny how innocently the isolation begins. [...]

A Toolbox for the Real World

By | August 14th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Patrick Long-Quian This summer I was provided the opportunity to work at St. Luke’s as an intern in Communications and I was incredibly excited. I learned so much working at St. Luke’s and saw many of the things that go on behind the scenes. I came to appreciate everything the church does and how it does it even more than before I started my internship. Having attended St. Luke’s since third grade this place has nurtured me and spurred spiritual growth and maturity in me. When I was a little kid, I believed what they taught me [...]

All will be well, all will be well, all manner of things shall be well

By | August 7th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Laurie Noteboom This fall marks a new stage in our family as our oldest son begins high school. As excited as he is for the change, the transition was breaking this mom out in a rash early this summer. However, a meal and an ah-ha moment reminded me all would be well. Recently we stopped at Chick-Fil-A for lunch, as we have so many times in his fourteen years. Between bites, my eye caught the little ones playing in the indoor play-scape and I started to remember all the days he had done the same thing. How many [...]

Mosaic: A Music Camp for Children

By | July 31st, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

by Faith Ayers Last week was our first Mosaic Music Camp, an outreach program of the Children’s and Fine Arts Ministries at the Gethsemane Campus. Over thirty K-5th grade children from all over the Gulfton/Sharpstown area came to this week-long program. We had no idea what to expect, but we had a hope that we could create a space where children could discover their musical abilities in a safe, fun, and loving place at a minimal cost to their families. God did that in a big way. He made a way for us to give our children a quality [...]

Dennis’ Tree

By | July 24th, 2016|All blogs, We Tell Our Stories|0 Comments

On July 14, 1984, Dennis Crosby Fowler Jr. passed away after a tragic accident at his summer job. He was only 14. Dennis’ death shook the entire community of Gethsemane UMC, now the Gethsemane Campus of St. Luke’s. Current members remember coaching his baseball team and mentoring him in the youth group. A framed picture of Dennis’ sneakers, with the phrase “Jesus is Lord” inscribed in pen on the soles, hangs in the Gethsemane education wing. It’s as if Dennis lives on at Gethsemane. His memory lives on here, like he’s still sitting in the pews on Sunday morning. [...]
