Your gifts make a difference as St. Luke’s continues to Share God’s Love and Bring Hope to the World. When you give to the church, you are supporting St. Luke’s programming, missions, administration, ministry staff, and facility. We are committed to living within our means, so we ask every family to prayerfully consider what they are able to commit to give in the coming year. That enables the church to budget for next year’s ministries and missions. We ask that you fill out a pledge card and make plans to attend a special Commitment Sunday on November 4.
