Mission for Ministry 2024
Play Video

September 8, 2023

Last fall, our Mission for Ministry program was a great success! The program packet outlined many of St. Luke’s ministries, and the volunteers who wrote those paragraphs did an outstanding job of articulating these ministries and why they are important to them.


Our current ministries and programs are highlighted in this year’s packet. A new group of volunteers have written paragraphs in the areas of Worship, Formation, Music, Online Ministries, Children and Youth, College and Young Adults, Hospitality and Fellowship, Outreach, Pastoral Care, Clergy, Staff, and Vestry, & Building and Grounds. These are vital components of our Parish Life. As you read this information, we ask you to consider their importance to St. Luke’s and to you personally.


At the 67th General Convention in 1982, the Episcopal Church adopted the tithe as the standard of giving for our churches. If your support of St. Luke’s is at this level, we thank you. We also thank you if you have not yet reached the goal of tithing but are working toward it. A “giving chart” is included in this packet to help guide you. As you consider your pledge for 2024, please remember that our parish can only offer our programs and ministries with your support.


Please prayerfully consider your pledge and be as supportive of our parish as you are able. Let us know if you have any questions. Let the church office know if  you would like more information about or would like to be involved in any of our programs or ministries.


Love and peace,
