Preparations are being made now for the Annual parish Meeting set for January 17th. At the meeting, we'll hear all about the "state of the union" here at St. Luke's and elect new members to the Vestry. Details on the meeting will be released soon following a meeting of the Regathering Task Force. Although the meeting will appear a bit differently this year due to COVID-19, please make every effort to attend as we need a quorum of 100.
We ask that you read materials in advance. 

Learn about the Vestry nominees here.

THERE'S STILL TIME TO PLEDGE: A message from Laura and Martha

We would like to thank all of you that made your pledge for 2021! This really helps the Vestry with planning for the new year’s budget and is much appreciated.

For those of you that have not yet pledged, we ask that you prayerfully consider doing so. We have asked to have these pledges by December 15 in order for the Vestry to complete next year’s budget. However, if you are unable to make this commitment by then, we will happily accept your pledge after that date.

We miss seeing our St. Luke’s families and friends at church but please know how important each one of you are to what makes St. Luke’s such a special place. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of us!  Thanks and blessings during this holiday season.

Love in Christ,

Laura and Martha
