Faith Development

Faith is a journey.  At St. Luke we believe everyone is on a unique walk with Christ.  Sunday service is a great place to start connecting with our Lord.  To supplement and deepen that relationship, we encourage you to participate in a Faith Development opportunity.  New groups are welcome and encouraged.  Speak with Pastor Heidi if you have an idea to inspire Faith Development at St. Luke.

  • Sunday School

    Sundays, 9:30-10:45 a.m.

    Sunday School (the Learning Hour) is held from September to June between services.  For information about Sunday School curricula, please visit our Sunday School page.

  • Adult Forum

    Sundays, 9:30 - 10:45 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall


    Adult Forum is a learning opportunity for adults during the learning hour between the worships services. We meet in the Fellowship Hall.

  • Wednesday Morning Bible Study

    Wednesdays, 10:30-11:30 am


    This group gathers weekly to study the Scripture texts that are the assigned readings for the upcoming Sunday. Through study and conversation, they hope to learn more about God’s Word and its application to their lives as well as to support and encourage one another. It is a lively discussion and is open to all.

  • Confirmation

    Confirmation is a tradition in the Lutheran Church.  Beginning in 6th grade, young members who wish to strengthen their understanding of the Bible and Lutheran traditions may choose to begin the confirmation process.  For more information on this special faith commitment, please visit our Confirmation page.

  • Women's Ministry

    Women's Ministry takes on a variety of forms at St. Luke. A study, fellowship, or service event is planned each month. A previous highlight was the twice yearly retreat held at the Sisters of Mercy retreat center in Westerly, RI - unfortunately that property has been sold. We are currently looking for a new site, and all suggestions are welcome!

    Women frequently attend the fall Women's Weekend at Camp Calumet and the Women of Faith Conference in Hartford. The schedule of events can be found in The Scroll, our church newsletter. For more information, call the church office at 860-464-7897.


    God Pause devotions are short, meaningful reflections on the following Sunday’s lessons and gospel. By Sunday, you’ll be ready for an extra meaningful worship experience.

    D365 (With optional music) - These devotions were written by ministers, professors, students, teachers, missionaries, denominational leaders, and others who work with and care for students. An author typically writes one week of devotions.

    In these devotions, you will read honest struggles and questions, all in the context of real faith. As you read the thoughts of the writers, think about your own response to the scripture for the day. Let the writer’s words serve as background for your own conversation with God.
