Summer Worship at St. Luke's

As summer ends and St. Luke’s prepares for Rally Day and the start of a new program year, we are already thinking ahead to next summer.Summertime presents opportunities as well as challenges for all churches. People want to rest from “life” and Sunday mornings can seem like an especially good time to do that. People travel more in summer than during the other months of the year – the “program year” as churches often call it. Some of those travelers will visit churches – and St. Luke’s gets its fair share of visitors each year.
For those of us who think of our worshiping community as a “church family,” Sunday morning is an important time regardless of the season of the year. We want to stay connected and engaged with the church and the church’s work, which does not take a vacation. Some churches go to a “summer schedule,” offering fewer worship services and programs; while others stick with the same schedule all year long. We want to get your thoughts about the best way that we can bring the St. Luke’s church family together for worship each Sunday during the summer. Let us know your preferences for Sunday worship during summer at St. Luke’s by filling out this brief, anonymous survey. If possible, please complete the survey online: StLukesAtlanta.org. If you prefer to fill out this page, please drop it in the plate on Sunday mornings or mail it to the church to the attention of: Survey. The survey will be available online throughout September. Thank you!
