St. Luke’s Preschool has been an outreach ministry of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church serving families in our church and community for 46 years. Our preschool has an excellent reputation for providing a quality early childhood educational experience in a Christian setting. We are blessed to have talented, experienced certified teachers who provide a loving, learning atmosphere for the children each day at preschool. Each child grows at his/her own pace socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and intellectually. We have partnered for 10 years with the Bloomington Public Schools to provide a subsidized preschool education to two families whose children are English Language Learners and have financial need. Our preschool is an exciting mission outreach of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church for the love of children and their families.
Trunk or Treat is a bridge event, a great way for the community to have a safe environment for children to trick or treat during the Halloween season. Both members of St. Luke's and members of the community decorate their cars/trunks and pass out candy to the trick or treaters. We have S’mores, popcorn and cider by the campfire. A great time for fellowship, this event has been St. Luke's main community event for the past 12 years. Last year’s attendance, the largest ever, was roughly 150 children, and it continues to grow!
Property Team is a close second to being the most important Evangelist for St. Luke’s - the first, members sharing their faith out in the community. This unheralded, active group of members’ mission is to keep the interior and exterior of our facility inviting, clean, and in good working order for our members and guests. The sheer size of our building, sitting on almost a full city block, and ranging in age from a couple of years to over 50 years old is a challenge, but this group is up to the task! Through the efforts of this committees members, this group saves thousands of dollars annually by doing service that would otherwise need to be contracted out.
