Welcome to St. Luke’s Student Ministry

For students in 6th-12th grade, our middle and high school ministries offer strategically focused Bible studies and events to meet students where they are and spur them on to know, love, and follow Jesus Christ. We are committed to loving and serving youth and their families as they navigate the teen years and explore their faith in Christ.

Middle School

Welcome 6th-8th grade students! We know middle school is viewed by many as the awkward years, but God has more planned for you than a few years of awkwardness. Your openness for life and enthusiasm for learning are two of the things we appreciate most about this age group. Each week at St. Luke’s, you will have the opportunity to connect with your peers and learn more about a life changing relationship with Jesus.

Middle School students are invited to join us each Sunday at 9:45 a.m. for a time of fun and worship through music, followed by a message and discussion. We meet in the new Student Ministries building. Our café opens at 9:30 a.m., so come early to hang out with the Student Ministry staff, volunteers, and other students.
Confirmation is a very special experience for our 6th through 8th graders. At the center of confirmation is at St. Luke’s is the idea that our faith is a journey and not simply a one time experience.  Confirmation takes place in the fall of the 6th grade year on Sundays.  Periodically during the 7th grade year and during the spring of the seventh grade year. Through this process students will develop deep and lasting relationships with other students and adults.  Our hope is that by the end of the confirmation journey the confirmations will feel a deep sense of belonging with this church community and they will be able to make an informed and conscious choice to trust in Jesus.

Small Groups take place in homes all over the city.  It is a great chance for students to build friendship, find accountability and a chance to grow deeper in their faith.  Groups start with a shared a meal before a discussion time facilitated by two dedicated adult leaders.  Most groups are divided by grade and gender. Sign up here. Contact Katie Brown for more information.

Our hope is to effectively partner with you and encourage you to be the parents God has called you to be. We have countless opportunities for people wanting to partner with Student Ministry at St. Luke’s As a volunteer, you could lead a weekly small group, travel with us to retreats and mission trips, share your gift of photography or anything in between.
