Stewardship is how we get Fit for Mission.
Jesus calls us to make disciples of all and everyone in our parish wants to live out that call. Yet we have reached a crucial point in our parish where we must increase our capacity to invest in our mission even as more has been expected of fewer people. Never more has the call that the workers are few and the harvest great ring more true. We know this must change.
We have a great vision, an inspiring message, a desire to serve and change the world. Yet we face many challenges. We need to work together to share that load if we are truly to be Fit for Mission. We need to address head-on our ways of working and the continuing needs of our buildings. We need to find ways to assure that our resources are fit for their purpose. Being Fit for Mission is how we live that out. It builds on what has come before and empowers us to look courageously to the future.
We plan to get Fit for Mission through our 2022-2023 Annual Membership Campaign
Our campaign seeks to provide the resources necessary to:
- Introduce people to Jesus
- Deepen our own commitment to discipleship
- Develop Christian leaders among us
- Work for justice and peace in our community and in the world.
As the stewards of the mission and ministry of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, we are all entrusted to nurture and build on the legacy of our community, so that future generations will benefit from our rich religious heritage. Our work is only made possible through giving of our time, our talents, and our financial means. Our individual generosity multiplies when we give together.
Our 2022-2023 Annual Membership Campaign Fit for Mission is your personal opportunity to declare your financial intentions for the 2023 fiscal year. By banding together, we will be better able to meet the challenges before us. St. Luke’s celebrates the great diversity among its members and friends, including the diversity of financial situations. Your gift, regardless of the amount, is vital to proclaiming that God’s mission is our own.
Together we can become Fit For Mission
Our Annual Membership Campaign begins on St. Luke’s Day – October 16th – and ends with our In-Gathering on October 31st.
