COVID-19 UPDATE: Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church Sports Calendar

Sports Ministry: Grace-St. Luke’s Episcopal Church provides sports opportunities in the parish, school and wider community, through church leagues, for Junior Kindergarten-Fourth grades. Our primary focus is to teach children the fundamentals of sports and competition, while fostering principles of leadership and integrity.

Grace-St. Luke’s Church leadership team continues to monitor the ongoing developments of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in an effort to keep everyone safe and lower the risk of the spread of the coronavirus.

Each person’s safety and well-being are our priorities and Grace-St. Luke’s leadership team will continue to monitor and update you with this health situation as it pertains to our sports programs.



Dear Friends: On October 17, GSL kicked off the annual stewardship campaign to ask each parish household to participate in Every Member Canvass 2022 through a financial pledge by Sunday, November 21. Along with members and newcomers, members of the Staff and the Clergy also are making commitments. 100% pledge participation will make it possible for our RECREATIONAL AND WELLNESS programs, and the ministry we share to remain possible and even expand because of money. Every pledge amount is important and matters toward the whole of the church’s operating budget built on pledge income from you, me, and many others.

Please read the “Frequently Asked Questions – October 2021 | Why Giving Matters” resource at, where you also can make your pledge and be recognized by the Stewardship Team. I learned that several of you already have made a pledge and I know the team is grateful! Because the finance committee is working on the 2022 budget, I hope you’ll join this major community effort and make your commitment by Pledge Sunday, November 21. If I can answer questions about where our pledge dollars go, please contact me or Chapman Morrow, Membership & Stewardship Associate (cmorrow [at] gracestlukes [dot] org, 901-252-6328).
