Formation at Grace-St. Luke’s

Christian formation (education) is about growing in discipleship and discovering how faith is relevant to all aspects of our lives. At GSL, we strive to offer a menu of learning choices in large and small group settings led both by clergy and lay ministers. Classes for adults are held in various locations, including the Parish Hall (Trezevant), Peete Room (LeMaster Street door entrance), The Chapel, Parlor (Lounge), McClure Hall, and Room 212 (beyond Trezevant in the Evans Building). Youth and children gather in designated rooms located on the basement level of the Parish House.
