Mission

Saint Luke’s was built for the purpose of raising children. Like the surrounding village of Crestline, this church was designed for families. Children have the run of the place. They always have.

New Creation Returns August 14

During the 10 o’clock fellowship hour, children 4K through 6th grade attend New Creation, a fellowship time for children with Sunday school- like curriculum. Drop off and pick-up of children occurs in the classroom. Children attending the 11 o’clock service following New Creation may stay in their classroom for Sunday school.

Check-in

Check in takes place in the Maloof entrance, closest to the back parking lot. Please check-in your children as you arrive to church on Sunday morning. Check-in is a safety protocol that greatly helps us account for all children throughout the day. Thank you for your participation in this effort!

Frequently Asked Questions

Safety and Security measures for the Children's Ministry

We want your child to feel loved and secure when they enter our building and we want you to feel secure about leaving your child in our care. Therefore, we place a high regard on security, with background checks on our nursery workers and by implementing security measures. Each time you bring your child to the nursery, you will be given a nametag to fill out and place on your child’s back. It has a parent receipt for you to hold on to. You will need to have this when you return to pick up your child.
