Stewardship

Hear what the clergy and your fellow parishioners are saying about stewardship at St. Luke's

Traditional Worship

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

Psalm 95:6

What did we do in 2020?David Miller Family

St. Luke’s responded to the coronavirus pandemic by launching online worship services. At 7:30, we tried to maintain the service traditions of 70 years, making no significant changes! At the 9:00 traditional service, we held special events such as St. Luke’s Sunday, where we temporarily expanded the choir and brought in trumpets to add a joyous sound to our worship.

Traditional Worship Service

What will a 15% increase in your pledge allow us to do in 2021?

In 2021, we will strengthen the quality of the choir by increasing the number of paid vocalists and further add to the musical beauty of this service. Additionally, we will include brass and special instruments on festal occasions such as St. Luke’s Sunday, Pentecost, Christmas, and Easter. With your support, we will develop a calendar of organ concerts for 2021.

Contemporary Worship

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

Psalm 95:1

Traditional Worship Service

What did we do in 2020?

We have continued to refine our contemporary worship service and pivoted to online worship during the pandemic. We continued to use the contemporary service as a great way to engage new people and families in the life of the church, and utilized social media to encourage broader viewership locally and across the nation.

What will a 15% increase in your pledge allow us to do in 2021?

It is important that we have both male and female voices leading our contemporary music, especially on special occasions. Therefore, your support will make it possible for us to bring in a female vocalist for special events and holidays such as Christmas and Easter.

Children and Families

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 19:14

Children and Families

What did we do in 2020?

This was a big year for our ministry to children and families, as we brought Sarah Head onto the team, re-launched a Sunday School program, and began broadcasting Children’s Chapel online each week. It is amazing what we were able to accomplish with Sarah’s leadership, despite a tornado and a pandemic!

What will a 15% increase in your pledge allow us to do in 2021?

In 2021, we will implement a high-quality Vacation Bible School program to run either in-person or virtually, pending the progress of this pandemic. We will also increase our investment in children and family activities in the second half of the year, assuming the pandemic permits family gatherings by late 2021.

Parish Life

“Where two or three gather in my name,
there am I with them.”

Matthew 18:20

Parish Life

What did we do in 2020?

In 2020, Deacon Rosemary led two weekly Bible Studies, we offered a weekly online Compline service, invited special guest speakers to join us for worship during our Lenten mid-week services, and Father Mark engaged different community leaders in discussion about faith in a class we are calling “Conversations.”

What will a 15% increase in your pledge allow us to do in 2021?

In 2021, your support will allow us to strengthen our pastoral care, as we put a strategy in place to allow more clergy time to engage parishioners. To further enhance the community and the life of the parish, we will bring in high-quality guest speakers and preachers to help us further explore our faith and grow in our knowledge of God.

Outreach and Evangelism

“I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me...”

Matthew 25:35

Parish Life

What did we do in 2020?

In 2020, we continued to support our partner school, Kramer Elementary, despite the tornado. During the pandemic, we helped finance Gateway of Grace’s program of providing masks to people in need and creating job opportunities for refugees. We will support Gateway of Grace through our annual Angel Tree as we enter Advent. This year found new ways to serve our community, offering free lunches to children in need over the summer and continuing to serve our community through ministries such as North Dallas Shared Ministry, The Gathering, and distribution of Blessing Bags.

Parish Life

What will a 15% increase in your pledge allow us to do in 2021?

Your increased support in 2021 will allow us to deepen our commitment to serve other organizations in our community such as St. Phillip’s School and Community Center in South Dallas.

Furthermore, your support will help us build bridges with our neighbors locally and around the country. We will invest in building relationships with people, wherever they live, who are looking for an online church during this time of pandemic. We now have people from different cities and states joining us for worship online and your support will allow us to foster more of these relationships.

Buildings and Grounds

“My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”

Isaiah 56:7

Buildings and Grounds

What did we do in 2020?

In 2020, much of our work was related to tornado recovery. We repaired the roof of the main sanctuary and repainted the interior of the church and the chapel, both of which had experienced water damage. The south façade of the chapel was repaired and repainted – removing bubbling that had been present for many years. A new outdoor columbarium was constructed and consecrated. However, the most significant Buildings and Grounds projects in 2020 related to: asbestos abatement in the Education Building, cleaning out the interior of the Education Building, and salvaging valuable materials.

Buildings and Grounds

What will we do next year?

Next year, we will pivot from the post-tornado clean up to the rebuilding a greatly improved Education Building. We have hired an experienced architectural firm and will have exciting plans to share with the congregation during the 1st quarter of 2021.
