A Time for Embracing Discipleship

A Time for Embracing Discipleship, Chapman Morrow, Membership & Stewardship Associate

The Easter and Pentecost seasons are a time of great joy!  In this spirit, we have the opportunity to embrace discipleship in new and exciting ways. As Jesus’ early followers were struck with awe and wonder, they fully immersed themselves in their new calls to ministry. With courageous spirits, they stewarded.  They used their gifts from God of time, talent, and treasure to spread the good news of the Gospel into the world!

How can each of us embrace discipleship in this season? Here are a few ideas:

Stewardship of Time:

  • Volunteer on Wednesday nights June 22-July 29 for all the fun that is Vacation Bible School.
  • Help our community get out the vote by writing postcards after the 10 a.m. service on July 17.
  • Pray for those on our parish prayer list each week as listed in your Sunday leaflet.

Stewardship of Talent:

  • Become involved with one of our parish outreach ministries. You can learn more about them at www.gracestlukes.org/outreach. 
  • Serve as a lay eucharistic minister, lector, acolyte, usher, or welcome host at Sunday services. Contact Congregational Life Associate/Assistant to the Rector Abby Huber (901-252-6336, ahuber@gracestlukes.org) to sign up.

Stewardship of Treasure:

  • Because summer months are prime time for travel and weekend plans, please consider e-giving as an option.  It’s easy for you and the parish and helps us plan more accurately even when attendance fluctuates.  To sign up for automatic payments or to make an online gift, please go to www.gracestlukes.org/give.  
  • Consider supporting Grace-St. Luke’s in your will or estate plans. Your legacy of thoughtful giving can impact and serve the parish for years to come.

Thank you for all the ways you support Grace-St. Luke’s—we’re so grateful for the many gifts you bring to all that we do as a parish.  Looking for even more ways to serve? Give me a call!
