Formation is the activities we undertake to nurture and grow as followers of Christ.
Older Youth (12-18) have the opportunity to serve during regular worship as Acolytes (priest’s assistant), Lectors (Reading the Bible and leading prayers), and Eucharistic Ministers (helping with communion).
St Luke’s is partner in a regional youth formation program with St James, Skaneateles and St John’s, Marcellus called FourWest. Each month, we will share a meal together and have a time of sharing, reflecting and learning. Each time will conclude with a contemporary worship service with music. The location will rotate monthly between the four participating churches St. John’s of Marcellus, St. James’ of Skaneateles, St Mark the Evangelist, Syracuse, and St. Luke’s in Camillus.
FourWest is the result of listening to families and responding to ever changing cultural pressures. Community families and clergy have been in discussion and research to create something to support area youth.
One of the foundational disciplines of faith is Study – understanding the work of God in the past to help us better discern God’s actions in the present and God’s invitation for the future.
Bible Study occurs on Mondays 6:00pm online via Zoom. Check out our Online Resources page to see how to connect.
