Donation options

“ Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back–given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting is the way. Generosity begets generosity.”

— Luke 6:37, The Message

 About donations:

As Christians and good stewards, we are taught to tithe our income to the Lord. What does it mean to tithe and why do we need to do this? See our beliefs on giving. St. Luke provides many ways for you to present your tithes and offerings so that our vision of “Jesus Christ in Every Life” can be fulfilled:

Online Giving:

Online Giving is an easy, secure and convenient way to present your tithes and offerings. Your gifts can be given anywhere at a time that is convenient for you. This method of giving allows you to give an electronic check ( with your bank routing number and your account number), your bank debit card or your VISA/MC/Discover/AMEX credit card. Please keep in mind that credit card acceptance is for your convenience. St. Luke United Methodist Church promotes sound financial management and does not encourage anyone to enter into debt in order to make a contribution. We suggest this option not be used unless you plan to pay off your credit card balances in full each month.
