Supporting St. Luke’s

St. Luke’s is financially supported by the annual financial commitments of members, additional offerings by members and visitors, rental of its facilities, and legacy gifts of people who have included St. Luke’s in their wills.


Annual Pledge

Each year we ask all parishioners to make a thoughtful, prayerful, and intentional commitment to financially support the ministry and mission of St. Luke’s.  Pledging is simply promising to give a certain amount of money to St. Luke’s in the coming year.  Your generosity funds worship, formation, and outreach ministries.  Your dollars support staff salaries and keep our building warm and dry so that it can be a spiritual home, a place to celebrate life milestones, and a place for a supporting community to meet.  We hope that pledging will also deepen your own spiritual journey.  Visit the pledge page for more information and to make a pledge online.

Planned Giving

Gifts to St. Luke’s through a will or trust are a powerful way to support our ministries in the world for future generations.  Parishioners are encouraged to undertake thoughtful end-of-life planning, including making arrangements for the care of minor children and financial arrangements.  If you have included St. Luke’s in your estate plan in any way, please let us know by filling out this form so that we can properly thank you and plan St. Luke’s future.  There are no minimum financial requirements.  For more information about including St. Luke’s in your future plans, please click here or contact us (
