Stewardship


Stewards take care of persons or things placed in their charge. The Stewardship Commission facilitates support of the opportunities to sustain St. Luke's Church and its many ministries in and outside the parish. The Commission communicates with the parish in order to inform and educate parishioners about  stewardship opportunities. It is the role of the Stewardship Commission to organize the annual Ministries appeal and pledging process.

 



All members of the parish may serve on any Commission they choose. If you are interested in becoming involved in any aspect of Parish life, please contact the Commission Chair for details.
