“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
-Psalm 16:11

Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

There are approximately 49 Bible verses (ESV) which refer to joy. Our material possessions and familial relationships, which give us joy and pleasure, are given to us by God. Even so, they do not take the place of our greater love for God. As we prayerfully consider and develop our ministry plan for 2024, we ask, “Where is God leading us? What blessings from God await us?” As your council and staff develop a ministry plan for next year, each of us have a part to play in developing a bright future for St. Lucas and its current and future members.
Your stewardship of time, talent and treasures enable St. Lucas to achieve its goals and shared visions that will:

  • Offer high-quality, inspiring worship services.
  • Share and teach the Word of God to new believers and disciples.
  • Be a church for all people.
  • Develop exceptional lay leadership.
  • Grow in generosity as a congregation, demonstrating love and trust for God.
  • Serve the community with selfless hearts.
  • Have a well-maintained facility to meet our ministry goals; and
  • Initiate and support church planting beyond our walls.

While pledging for the new year helps our congregation plan, this pledge is primarily a covenant between you and God as He guides you to worship Him through your regular offerings to St. Lucas. Circumstances may change, as they often do in our lives, making it necessary to increase or decrease your pledge. Please know that you are free to adjust your pledge.

But for now, with what you know, take these steps:

  • Pray and resolve to give in view of God’s love and abundant blessings.
  • Create a “Blessings List” of what God has given you so far in your life.
  • Using the  chart on the back of the pledge card , honestly determine the percentage of income you currently give.
  • Respond to God’s call to support your church by challenging yourself to increase your regular giving by 2% of your income.

An easy way to make your 2024 financial pledge is to use the drop-down arrow below to reveal an electronic pledge form, that will go directly to the Stewardship Director after submission. Please keep a copy of your pledge acknowledgement for Celebration Sunday, October 22, 2023, when we will be collecting the pledges during the worship service.

Your 2024 pledge will be posted to your giving account. You will receive quarterly financial statements on your progress toward fulfilling your pledge goal.

Thank you for giving joyfully and generously to the ministry of St. Lucas!
