Perhaps this year more than any other we recognize the invaluable gifts that come from the priceless connections made with one another through prayer, conversation, worship, formation, pastoral care, outreach, social justice, fellowship, music, recreation, wellness, and year-round stewardship. Despite the challenges and changes we face in these days, Grace-St. Luke’s vision remains steadfast: to be a thriving community of hope, belonging, and healing through worship, parish life, and service, who rejoices in the love of Jesus to transform the world.
Today’s reality demands creativity in how we might fulfill GSL’s vision. Our thriving community of faith has shown resilience in responding to our challenges by creating new avenues to connect, worship, and care for one another. We’ve found refuge and strength in God and each other, all while looking forward in hope. Your financial support, prayers, and genuine care for one another have been essential to navigating these uncharted waters.
Life at GSL is moving forward with great ministry initiatives. We’re staying connected through Sunday and weekday worship, Christian formation for all ages, and music through upgraded internet and streaming capabilities, and we’re providing some in-person options. We continue to serve some of the community’s most vulnerable through More Than A Meal and by sharing Food Pantry provisions with area ministry partners. Deepening parish community relationships and growing our presence in Memphis through service partnerships are among the benefits of having welcomed the Rev. Laura F. Gettys in July as associate rector for congregational development and community engagement.
We hope you’ll participate in the 2020-2021 Stewardship Campaign by engaging in all the church has to offer, both this Fall and beyond, and in supporting parish life by making a pledge. To thrive and sustain, we need you as continued good stewards and givers of the resources available to you and all of us from God. Please prayerfully consider the instrumental ways in which you might invest in life at Grace-St. Luke’s and pledge either online at www.gracestlukes.org/onlinegiving or by returning a Pledge Form to the church office by November 1.
With great hope for times to come,
Allison and Steven King
2021 Stewardship Chairs
