Adult Ed returns for the fall semester. Join us as we work our way through the book of Acts, the second of our patron saint’s attributed texts. A variety of guests will highlight major events, concepts, and themes in this record of the early church and help us trace its growth from a small group of believers in Jerusalem to the heart of the Roman Empire.

Was Luke Really There? The ‘We’ Sections in Acts’ by VK McCarty
Learning is a lifelong journey — an adventure of asking questions about God, the Bible, ourselves and our world.
St. Luke's encourages our members and friends on this journey and offes educational opportunities through our Adult Education program, each September through May. This includes (but is not limited to) Bible study, book study, lectures, and workshops. Our Adult Education courses offer lively and challenging discussions in a small group setting, with inspiring and stimulating guest speakers who are experts in their fields.
Recent series include an in-depth examination of the Reformation and Anglicanism, exploration of the sacred texts of Islam and the Qur'an, the Book of John, Women in the Bible, and the Psalter (Book of Psalms).
