St Luke's has been here making Christ known for almost 100 years! This is an impressive history but it doesn't end now. We need to set the frame work for us to continue for another 100 years. This takes all of us contributing time, talent and money.
That's what our 100% for 100 years is all about. If we all do our part, our goals can be reached.
Giving is never easy, but it is necessary for our congregation to continue making Christ known in our community. In the past Mary Jean and I have been giving a weekly amount to the operating account and an annual stock gift to the capital account. If you are fortunate enough to have stocks that have significant gains, this is a great way to give to the Church rather than the government. Since we're of the age where we have to take IRA distributions, we will utilize those funds as well, to be directed to the Church rather than the government.
We are truly glad that we joined St Luke's 44 years ago. We made a commitment then, and over the years we have made many good friends and experienced wonderful opportunities with them. This is our home! St. Luke's has had its ups and downs and it's challenges, but we have weathered them all. If we all stick together we can overcome anything that comes our way. We are a faith community that we're confident will prevail for the next 100 years!!
