Stewardship 

Thought of the Week



Part of St Luke's mission statement is "busy making Christ known to the world" through our service to, and financial support of, various ministries. This week we shared a gift of our tithe to three more ministries that we serve: $2000 each to Meals on Wheels, MN Assistance Council for Veterans (MAC-V), and Oasis. Blessed to be a blessing!

Mission & Ministry Booklet



Every year members are invited to prayerfully consider their commitment, involvement, and participation in the ministries of St. Luke’s. Volunteering at St. Luke’s is not a life sentence, but an annual opportunity. Life changes as we grow in years, and so do our abilities and desires. What does not change is the love God has for all creation, including each one of us. We are invited to respond to God’s love through Service, Worship, Evangelism, Community, Stewardship, and Discipleship – Simply What Every Christian Should Do. 


Click on this link for a copy of the booklet.


Please complete the Ministry Interest Form found on the back cover and return it to the Church Office. Print it, fill it out, send it or scan/take a picture and email to the office. Another option is to email us with a list of the ministries you are interested in volunteering for.


If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact a staff member: 952-881-5801 or office@stlukesbloomington.org.
