Our parish has much to be grateful for!
Our numbers are increasing, our outreach programs are thriving, and our doors are open every day to welcome "all, young and old; those strong and weary; those who are mourning, ill or need comfort; those who need rest or feel alone; all who are left out and need acceptance; and those who are grateful and need a place to give thanks and pray" This is the mission of St. Luke's. This year, more than ever, we need you to help us live this mission. With a lively Christian education program, a growing congregation, and a pressing need to help our community comes an increase in expenses, including additional administrative staff and clerical staff.
Last year we asked, "what more could we be doing?" Many in our parish responded with a willing and generous heart. Stewardship covers only 70% of our annual operating costs and to meet the balance we depend on donations, bequests and additional fundraising. If we could increase our pledge participation to well above 50% of our households, that would enable our church to have the financial means to fully "live our mission" and insure the continued vitality of our parish programs. If you have not yet already pledged. please consider doing so and join us as we continue to embrace, practice and live the mission of St. Luke's. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
