Dear St. Luke’s Members and Friends ...
IF YOU WISH TO PLEDGE
IF YOU WISH TO MAKE
Many times over, we’ve all heard how St. Luke’s has the power to transform lives. Something about this place is transformational, isn’t it? And what we find here for ourselves we long to provide for others.
We’re excited to launch the campaign and hope you will join us. Our theme for this Years Stewardship Drive and Annual Dinner "MISSION MATTERS". It symbolizes that all of our actions and intentions are solely fixed on just that - Our Mission, and in that spirit 75% of your donation dollars will go directly into mission.
As we begin 2017, we invite you to help us set our trajectory for the years ahead. We all know mission and a desire to serve are at the heart of St. Luke’s. This fall, our Vestry begins a process to deepen and expand the transformative ministries we have been known for, as well as discern new areas in which God calls us to serve. To be committed to mission is to walk in step with the heartbeat of a loving God for a broken world.
To that end, the Vestry voted to commit 75% of all pledge dollars received in 2017 directly to mission, outreach, spiritual education for all ages, and formation. The purpose of this makes clear the truth of our faith: that mission is not an option but an integral part of how God calls us to serve God’s people.
Please take a moment to consider your pledge giving for 2017. This year, it will do so much more than keep the lights on, it will support and expand our LGBTQ Youth Program, GO Project tutoring, our education and formation ministries, and continue to transform lives! As we reflect together on the future God is calling us to as a church, won’t you join some 200 pledgers, who let us know in advance of their commitment to St. Luke’s and its mission for the year ahead?
Together we affirm our partnership with God in making a difference both here and beyond. Say yes to our call to transform lives.
There are two ways to pledge:
- You can print and fill out the pledge form found HERE and mail it back to the parish office at: 487 Hudson Street, New York NY 10014 or drop it in the collection plate at a Sunday service.
- If you’d like to pledge online, please go HERE and fill out your secure pledge form - click “First Time” then “My Account”. This year we are excited to introduce a secure e-giving platform to make it easier for you to give back to God through St. Luke’s. You can use it to track all online giving, make one-time or recurring gifts to multiple areas, and sign up and pay for programs. For help setting up your account or, to make your pledge, contact the Business Office at (212) 924-1523.
* These donations are tax-deductible.
As our campaign progresses, we will mail a stewardship status update to the parish. You’ll also hear from us through Stewardship Moments at Sunday services and email updates.
We are grateful for the community’s ongoing financial support of the parish. Thank you for prayerfully considering a pledge.
