Bible Reading Plans!
St. Luke has new Bible reading plans for 2018 outside the Welcome and Connection Center! We have one to help if you would like to read the bible in a year, and one for those who need a lighter load. Take a look and see how you might learn and grow closer to the Lord through your study of scripture this year!

Stewardship Commitment in 2018
As you reflect and plan for this new year, we invite you to also pray about your financial commitment to St. Luke. Your contributions are a form of discipleship throughout the year; they are a part of the lifestyle of a disciple. For those who would like to make a written commitment of your pledge to St. Luke, there are forms at the Welcome Center and Connection Center. You may keep the form for your own records, or you may return it to the church, attention Nora Conner.
