Your commitment to the financial stability of St. Luke’s allows us to not only continue to “live our mission” but also to expand that mission. As the events in our world become more challenging, our work of sharing God’s message of peace and love has become even more important. St. Luke’s means many things to many different parishioners: an oasis of spiritual sustenance, an anchor when we find ourselves adrift in a culture of confusion, and a source of strength where we can be reminded and renewed by the power of God’s love. Think about what St. Luke’s means to you. And in the spirit of thanksgiving, join us in supporting the 2018 campaign by making your stewardship pledge.
St. Luke's Altar Guild, St. Luke's Fellowship Committee, and the Outreach Committee are all looking for new members and event volunteers.
