Lenten 2019 Small Groups Series

We invite you to explore through the St. Luke’s Lenten Small Group Series. All materials provided by St. Luke’s. What you’ll be committing to:

•Weekly attendance at the group to the extent possible from March 10 – April 14
•Participation in the life of St. Luke’s (Sunday morning liturgy feeds small group reflection and vice versa)
•Meeting new people
•Having fun!


Our offerings for this season are:

Dads of Young Kids

We will be discussing the joys and challenges of fatherhood and seeking to broaden our spiritual horizons by exploring the ideas in Richard Rohr’s The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See.
When: Thursdays at 8:00 PM
Group Leaders: Nick Giacobbe, Thom Walstrum

A Lenten Lectionary: Scriptural and Otherwise 

Rooted in each week’s lectionary scripture reading and drawing from an eclectic, sometimes surprising collection of literary excerpts, this class will include both readings and some reflective writing.

When: Sundays at 9:00 AM
Group Leaders: Kat Banakis, Barbara Mahany

Making as Praying

Not all prayer is made of words. Join us as we learn that time making art can be time praying. No artistic
background required.

When: Wednesdays at 7:00PM or Tuesdays at 3:00 PM
Group Leaders: Jeannette DeFriest and Others

Young Readers and Interpreters (ongoing)

This group of older elementary and early middle readers has chosen to read Fish Girl, Dash, Bat 6 and
Charlotte’s Web among other 2019 selections. We have also engaged Biblical text through reader’s theater and other means. Equally important to the texts and conversation is the pizza.

Facilitators include Reenie Ruckdaeschel, Martha Meyer, Becky Strehlow, and many others. Please email reenieruck@yahoo.com or strehlow@comcast.net for more information.
