Grounds for Discussion meets in the Undercroft each Sunday morning between the 9:15 and 11:00 AM services during the program year (Sunday after Labor Day to Sunday before Memorial Day). Past sessions have hosted a variety of speakers from St. Luke’s clergy, the broader community of Granville, and organizations within central Ohio. Coffee and light refreshments are provided. Members of the congregation are invited to volunteer as presenters or to suggest speakers whom they would like to hear.
St Luke’s Book Club
Meets 7 or 8 times during the program year. Watch Calendar for scheduled events.
The Book Club reads a variety of selections that range from books of the Bible to best sellers, historical non-fiction, and biography. All members of the congregation are welcome to participate. Attendance at each session is not required, so members can select the titles in which they’re most interested. The group meets in the Undercroft beginning at 7:00 pm and generally concludes not later than 8:30 pm. Adult beverages and savories are provided.
Over the course of the program year, special classes and programs are offered. These programs range from Bible studies to programs that mark events during Lent and Advent. Programs are announced in the monthly newsletter as well as on the church’s website.
Conversations on Religion & Culture
Sundays 4:00-6:00pm – Parish House
The Conversations in Religion and Culture group has established its regular meeting date as the last Sunday of the month. Discussions are open to all who are interested in the topic of the month. The group believes that education happens through sharing, and particularly sharing one’s own life experiences. Therefore, these discussions are intended not to deliver specific information but to help participants learn what others have experienced and learned and to share in each other’s lives.
Pilgrim is a teaching and discipleship resource that helps inquirers, new Christians, and others explore what it means to travel through life with Christ. There are two stages of material in Pilgrim. Four short books in the Follow Stage are designed for those who are inquirers and very new to the faith. Then there are four books in the Grow stage designed for those who want to go further and learn more. Topics include The Lord’s Prayer, The Commandments, The Beatitudes, The Creeds and the Eucharist. Sessions are scheduled during the program year and are led by both parish clergy and lay persons.
