Capital Campaign 2023-2026
Grounded In Gratitude…
Revealed In Prayer…
Lived In Faith
An opening letter from Senior Pastor, Marshall Johnson
Over the years St. Luke has been a faith community that does not ask you to leave your intellect at the door, but rather encourages that you use it to probe and strengthen your faith. The ministry of St. Luke has not been limited to tearing down ancient symbols of belief; instead, it has wiped away the patina of ancient understandings and infused these ideas with fresh understanding.
This work is not complete. In fact, it has barely begun. Currently, in our culture fewer people believe in God than at any other time in our history. Does this mean people have become less caring, less moral or less spiritual? NO – they have paused part way through the process of a maturing faith. They have identified where their faith and the teachings of the church diverge. They have focused on the moment when they just can’t believe what they are being told nor the way the church describes a life of faith.
St. Luke’s ministry, compassion and service are needed now more than ever.
The building project (funded by a Capital Campaign) that is being proposed includes major changes to the Sanctuary, main restrooms and offices of the church. The key goals of this proposal are Accessibility and Hospitality. A successful campaign will result in a more welcoming and modern church that will benefit our existing members but will also be more inviting to new people.
Please check out the Campaign information and links on this page. We will continue to add links to this page each time additional information is sent to our members between now and April, 2022. Please also note the Q&A sessions in March which offer opportunities for you to ask whatever questions you have about the Campaign and proposed building project.
Commitment Sunday: March 26
NOTE: There is only one worship service at 9:30 a.m. today.
Today is “Commitment Sunday” for our Campaign. After reading the brochures (see links to both brochures near the bottom of this web page) and having opportunity to attend a Q&A session, we ask that you will prayerfully consider how you can participate in this Campaign by pledging your financial support toward our proposed Building Project.
Following today’s one worship service at 9:30, we will have a catered church-wide brunch in the Great Room. (See details below)
Church-Wide Celebration Brunch: Sunday, March 26
NOTE: There is only one worship service at 9:30 a.m. today
Because today is “Commitment Sunday” for our Campaign, we only have one worship service at 9:30 a.m. today, followed by a catered church-wide brunch in the Great Room. The brunch is to celebrate us bringing our commitments (pledge cards) for the Campaign. We hope everyone will join us for worship and the brunch.
The brunch menu will include: Breakfast pizza, hashbrown casserole, scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, orange juice, coffee and tea.
It will help us have the right amount of food if you will let us know if you plan to attend. Please RSVP by Friday, March 17, to: firstname.lastname@example.org
