St. Luke’s December mission is the Presbyterian Christmas Joy Offering which assists students to learn and grow in faith and provides critical financial assistance to current and retired church workers. As we search for the perfect gifts for family and friends, it is good to remember the perfect gift that we received from our gracious God in Jesus Christ and to reflect that generosity in our giving. 50% of the Christmas Joy Offering supports responses of the Board of Pensions to family, health and environmental emergencies affecting church workers and retirees. The remaining 50% supports future church leadership through individual student scholarships and through grants to Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color. May your support of the Presbyterian Christmas Joy Offering reflect both the generosity of God and ministry of Christ in your life.
