Recently from Pastor Andy’s Blog
What do you like about St. Luke Union Church? Is it the worship style, the friendly people, or the location? Is it the theology, the puppet, or is it the only church you have known for the past 20 years? Perhaps you attend St. Luke Union Church because this is where your spouse or children prefer, you seem to relate to what I say or feel or is it because we have the best coffee hour? That being said, what don’t you like about St. Luke Union Church? Is it the very small bath-rooms, the too small kitchen, or your inability to easily get up and down to the basement? Is it that the education classes are too small, there are not enough young families or the handicap parking spaces are too far from the door? Perhaps what you don’t like is that you have little idea what I preach about each week, you can’t see the screen or the greater church keeps doing things that simply divide.
Well if you haven’t heard yet there will soon be great change occurring in the church facility. Last year we began to explore renovating and expanding the building and in a few days we will begin to see further plans to what might be done.
Later this fall we will begin a Capital Campaign to seek funds to finance this project. I have been deeply involved in the preliminary planning as we inch closer to the actual work, but I have also begun to place perspective on anything we may do. Here are some of the insights that we may not have thought about while being caught up in what we simply like or dislike about St. Luke Union Church:
- It doesn’t matter what we like or dislike, it matters what Jesus likes and dislikes.
- If the only thing we hope to accomplish is larger bathrooms, kitchen and a new elevator, then we should find better use of our money.
- The people that will be giving the largest gifts for this project will not be the same ones who benefit from the church’s ministries.
- If we complete the project and are not open to, or fail to begin new ministry opportunities, then we have built for no one but ourselves.
The project we are about to embark upon can not solely be for the church as it exists today. It must be about the church we are being called by Christ to become. The plan we choose must be one that gives St. Luke Union Church the greatest opportunity to fulfill the mission Christ has and will continue to place before us. Our project is about the future of Christ’s church and not our personal desires or wishes.
I look forward to walking this path with all who call St. Luke Union home and with all those who will be welcomed through our doors long into the future.
Peace of Christ,
