Leadership

St. Luke Ministry Teams guide the life of the congregation. Pick a Ministry Team that you're passionate about and share your gifts with the congregation. All Ministry Teams will welcome new members.


You can also be a leader at St. Luke by volunteering to work with children and youth or by serving on the Congregation Council.

    The Lifelong Learning Team plays a vital role in nurturing spiritual development.  This team provides learning opportunities for all ages - from birth through adulthood. The Lifelong Learning Team needs enthusiastic, passionate members to help guide our disciples.  They meet after the late service on the second Sunday of the month in the library/ conference room.

  • fellowship TEAM

    The Fellowship Team might just be the most popular crowd at St. Luke! Celebration and event planning, food preparation and coffee-making are among the top skills needed for those who serve in Fellowship. Whether it’s bringing in food, setting up tables and chairs or meeting to plan the Fellowship budget and events for the year – there are big and small opportunities to serve the church through Fellowship. Through Fellowship, members and guests of St. Luke strengthen relationships and become more connected to the church. Scroll through this page for many opportunities to volunteer with Fellowship.


    For more information or to volunteer contact: Louise Larson, or any of the other Fellowship Team Members: Sue Anderson, Crystal Dame, Carolyn Kracke, Dennis Sindel or Dick Swiontek.


  • Stewardship Ministry Team

    The Stewardship Ministry Team assists the members of the congregation in intentionally discerning the amount of money that they provide to the congregation for the work of Jesus Christ in Gales Ferry, the New England Synod, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Thought-provoking messages and discussions concerning a Christian’s use of money are the major work that the team does. It provides pledge cards and records the amounts of money pledged in October.  During the year the team helps members choose to give of their time and talents.


    Time Commitment: Team meetings take place on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 pm. The majority of its work takes place in the fall.


    For more information or to volunteer, contact: Wally Stone


  • Evangelism team

    The Evangelism Team meets the second Sunday of the month between church services.  These friendly folks look for opportunities to grow St. Luke's family of worshippers by reaching out to potential members and communicating St. Luke mission and events to the greater community.   New team members and ideas are always welcome.

  • Children and Youth programs and events

    Sunday School teachers, chaperones, nursery attendants, VBS team, special program leaders . . .  children and youth are so important to St. Luke, and the program cannot be successful without volunteers of all ages and talents.  If you have a passion for working with kids and teens, and are prepared to encourage them in their faith journey, then St. Luke needs YOU!  Time commitment varies - help a little or a lot.
