St. Luke’s Cabinet Information
Have you ever wondered who carries out all the programs and missions of St. Luke’s? Here is a brief summary of each Cabinet.
Mission Statement: The Congregational Life Cabinet works to facilitate events and programming that bring the congregation and community together to strengthen existing relationships and build new ones.
Commitments to lead or assist with Congregational Life Events are short term and can be large scale or small scale. Opportunities to get involved include organizing the Congregational Picnic, a Masquerade Ball, a Square Dance, helping with the Easter Breakfast or one of our Luncheons. Congregational Life is looking for a group of people who are available and willing to be called upon as part of a committee to help set up and serve at luncheons and various events throughout the year.
Congregational Life does not have regular meetings.
