Biblical Studies
The Beginning

The Beginning

Rev. Josh Attaway

The book of Genesis is filled with amazing and familiar stories that light up our imagination and teach us some of the fundamental truths of who God is, who we are as humans, and what we are supposed to do in the world.  From stories of creation, to floods, to slavery in Egypt, we will explore some familiar stories in a whole new way to see how God is still speaking to us and calling us into relationship today.

Rev. Josh Attaway is the Campus Pastor at St. Luke’s Edmond.  Josh graduated from Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Illinois with a Masters in Divinity with a Concentration in Congregational Leadership.  Josh is married to his wife, Brittany, and enjoys playing golf, traveling, reading, and adventure.

Old Testament Stories From the Backside

Sally Liles

Taken from the book by J Ellsworth Kalas, this class will take us back to many familiar stories in our Bible. However, the author challenges us to look at these stories in a different way than what we were taught in Sunday school classes. In this study, we will hope to find new ways in which God speaks to us.

Children and Youth
Toy Bible Stories - Toys Can Teach Us About Serving God

Toy Bible Stories – Toys Can Teach Us About Serving God (K-5th Grade)

Taylor Easttom  |  teastoom@stlukesokc.org

All kids love toys. Most toy boxes are full of many different toys. We like to play with different toys for different reasons, but they are all used for one main purpose: to play. All through the Bible God used very different people to carry out his main purpose: to let the world know who God is and how much He loves us. These lessons will use common toys to teach kids Bible stories about very different people in the Bible who all have something to teach us about living out God’s main purpose.
