Supporting St. Luke's

All things come of thee, O Lord, and of thine own have we given thee.  1 Chronicles 29:14

As Christians we know that we are called to be good stewards of the gifts with which God has blessed us, and to use our time, talent and treasure to the glory of God.  Good stewards nurture their gifts and hope to make them grow.  Through our stewardship program, you can support the mission and ministry of St. Luke's in its community and beyond.

Annual Giving

Each fall members and friends of St. Luke's are encouraged to commit to a specific gift to support the church. Parishioners encourage each other through sharing to commit in faith to pledge a certain amount.  We do this by sharing our stories and letters from each other telling how St. Luke's has made a difference in our lives and why we pledge our support for the coming year.  "Pledge season"--as it is called--begins with the Feast of St. Luke (October 18) and in-gathering of pledge cards takes place on Christ the King Sunday (the last Sunday before Advent).

Each person decides what amount to pledge.  Although the biblical tithe (10% of income) is considered the touchstone for annual pledging, we know that many members are giving financially what they are able and are also supporting other charitable works.  We are grateful for their financial gifts and equally grateful to receive their time and talent as well.

If you would like to make an ongoing commitment to St. Luke's, you may pick up a pledge card from the usher's table or email revmegan@stlukesewing.org.

Planned Giving and the Living Stones Society

In life we plan for many things: saving for college, buying a first home, saving for our retirement, planning for our family's future.  A “planned gift” is a charitable contribution made from the resources you have stewarded during your life—your estate. Planned gifts ensure that St. Luke’s will have the resources needed to continue its mission and ministry for many years to come.  A planned gift is a way to “endow” your annual pledge.  Planned giving does not have to be complicated – and it is not reserved for the wealthy.

Those who have made St. Luke's a part of their estate plan are members of our Living Stones Society.  If you are interested in making a planned gift to St. Luke’s or you have already included the church in your estate plan, and you wish to be a member of the Living Stones Society, please contact Mother Megan or a member of the Stewardship Committee.

You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a  holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.   1 Peter 2:5

Other Forms of Support

There are several ways you can support St. Luke's through the ordinary ways you make purchases.  

Grocery Gift Cards
We offer gift card to local grocery stores, such as Shop-Rite, Pennington Quality Market, and Marazzo's. If you buy your groceries after purchasing these cards from us, St. Luke's receives 5% of the proceeds. It doesn't cost you any extra, and it really adds up for us!  Gift cards are sold after services on Sunday mornings and can be delivered by arrangement through the parish office if you are not able to get to church.  You may email us with any questions.
