A note from Pastor Andy Finish the Race

What a beautiful, purposeful, and powerful celebration of Easter we had this last weekend. I hope that this Lenten season was a time of spiritual growth for you and your family, and I pray that the Resurrection Power of Jesus is alive and working in you in this very minute.

Second, this campaign will not involve any arm twisting. We are committed to simply telling the story of what God has been and is doing, to sharing the information about what the needs are, and to casting a vision for God’s preferred future for our church family.

As we go forward into April, everyone in our church is going to be invited to take part in “Finish The Race” which is a financial campaign to completely erase our debt and fully free us to do whatever it is God is calling us to in His future. Our race begin almost 15 years ago as God called us to begin a ministry which would strategically reach the fastest growing area of Lubbock. The pace of that race picked up when 9 years ago we began raising money to actually have a physical presence and facility at 98th and Frankford. In 2009 we moved into St. Luke’s Southwest with an indebtedness of 2 million dollars. In 2012 we made another lap in this race as we embarked in our “Free to Serve” campaign. Because of God’s miraculous provision and your amazing faithfulness, our church debt is $385,000. “Finish The Race” is all about us making this final lap together. Our hope is to raise $250,000 over the next 18 months from our St. Luke’s Family. The remainder of the balance will be met through the already budgeted building payments that we make each month.

Third, God is calling us to finish this race together. The key to this campaign is all of us being involved and invested as God leads. If everyone will do their part by taking part, God will get us where He wants us to be. In the book of Exodus God calls Moses and the People of Israel to build a tabernacle. In Exodus 25 Moses asks for an offering that is a willing offering from the heart. By the end of the project God has so blessed the people and the people have so blessed God that the following occurred:

Three things you need to know about this campaign: First, our desire is that “Finish The Race” will not just be a financial campaign but a relational campaign. We talk a lot about St. Luke’s being a “Christ-centered FAMILY of grace.” So this whole campaign is taking place in homes and friendship networks throughout our church.

2

Then Moses gave an order and they sent this word throughout the camp: “No man or woman is to make anything else as an offering for the sanctuary.” And so the people were restrained from bringing more, because what they already had was more than enough to do all the work. (Exodus 36:6-7) May the same be true for us in the days ahead. I love our church family, I love you, and I count it as a joy and privilege to get to serve as one of your pastors. Trusting God as we run His race together,

PS---If you have any questions about this campaign, our finances, or anything going on in our church, don’t hesitate to give me a call.

Missions This summer, there will be many things happening within the life of our church. We will have VBS, Sports Camp, Music Camp, Ceta Canyon Camps for our kids, and many other fun events to benefit our families and our community. St. Luke’s is very blessed to have the time, resources, and, especially, the volunteers to do these many things. My prayer and my plea is for some in our church to feel the call to go out on a limb and participate in one of our mission trips this summer, and the one I want to talk about especially in this newsletter is the trip to Mexico. For $150, which covers the cost of 4 nights in a foreign country, you can change the outlook of a Mexican family’s life forever. I have been 3 times and what is always incredible is what a huge difference we can make with bricks and mortar. The labor is not overly complicated and the materials are not very expensive, but when these families look at their new house, they glow with a new-found appreciation of God’s ability to do the impossible. They believe it’s impossible that a group of American strangers would pay for, let alone come and build, them a new house. “With man this is impossible, but with God, all things are possible” Matthew 19:26. Even 50 years ago, it wouldn’t be too much of a hassle for some God-loving West Texans to get together for a barn-raising (and it wouldn’t be unusual to drive a couple hours to do it). I invite you to come raise up a house and raise up a hope in Jesus in Mexico with work gloves, bricks, and work ethic. Knowing our church, I think y’all are perfect for the job!

Mexico Mission Trip • July 26th-30th • Loma Blanca and Nueva Tierra outskirts of Juarez • $150 cost per person (covers all expenses in Mexico) • We will fundraise the project cost! • Work in teams of 10 with 2 Mexican professional builders • For families with young children and no sturdy place to live • Safe living conditions with reputable organization • Ages 10-12 with parent, 13+ with parental permission • All ages can serve impactfully (grandmas and grandpas included)! The next information meetings for the Mexico Mission Trip will be on April 10th at 4:45pm @ SW and on April 13th at 7:00pm (after Masters) @ Central. You can apply for the Mexico trip online at stlukeslubbock.org/missions/mission-trips. Application deadline is April 24th. We will have more about the Family Mission Trip and the Greece Mission Trip next month!

Ragamuffin Students Follow the Cloud One of the stories in scripture that the Holy Spirit is constantly reminding me of comes, believe it or not, from the exciting book of Numbers. It speaks of when the Israelites were wandering in the desert and at God’s instruction, they built a tabernacle; a word which literally means “a place to live or inhabit.” They were building a house for God to LITERALLY live in, and He chose to show Himself living there in the form of a great cloud. Sounds very interesting I know; but there is a reason this story convicts me:

“On the day the Tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered it. And during the night the cloud looked like a pillar of fire.” “Whenever the cloud lifted from over the Tabernacle, the people of Israel would leave and follow it. And WHEREVER the cloud settled, the people of Israel would set up camp. In this way, they traveled or camped at the LORD’s command WHEREVER He told them to go.” “Whether the cloud stayed over the Tabernacle for two days, a month, or a year, the people of Israel stayed in camp and did not move on. But as soon as it lifted, they broke camp and moved on.” As humans, even humans trying to follow the LORD wherever He goes, we often get stuck in the routines that we trust and understand. Whether our routine is praying the same time every day, attending church on Sunday, or going to the same annual event like church camp, we begin to think straying outside the norm is dangerous or wrong. But what we see from the Israelites is that moving or staying, changing or remaining the same, EVERYTHING THEY DID was dependent upon where God was leading in that moment. Easter was great and now is the season of Pentecost, the time in Acts when God did something TOTALLY new and never seen before! If there is one thing I can charge, encourage, or challenge fellow disciples of Jesus Christ whose hearts are given to Him it is this: follow the presence. When it stays, DO NOT MOVE. But when it moves, MOVE IMMEDIATELY. I am the greatest perpetrator of this, but let us not look to new things to solve our problems, nor stay camped in the old if God is doing something new. Jesus alone -not our routines, efforts, ideas, or programs- is our salvation, our hope, our joy, and our guide. God bless, and thank you for allowing me to walk with you in the LORD’s endeavors.

COMING UP Summer Missions! We have 3 different mission trip opportunities coming this summer, and ALL of them are designed for families to be on mission TOGETHER!

Appreciation Notes It is with mixed emotions that I write today. In June of 2005 Mona and I were appointed to be associate pastor at St. Luke’s. We came knowing no one, but confident that we were joining God’s people on a wonderful adventure. We were not wrong, for you welcomed us with such warmth and love and open hearts! In the few brief years that have ensued, we have grown to be family and we have been blessed by your prayers and support. The Lord has allowed us to share in your celebrations and, at times, in your grieving – to live life with you with its joys and its disappointments. Thank you, we serve an amazing God! Now that I have retired, I know that our relationship changes, but Mona’s and my affection for you does not. I may be retired but I am still part of your church family. I pray that we continue to walk this path of faith with you for many years to come! May we take this opportunity to express our appreciation to each of you for your love, your support, your prayers, and the liberality that you have shown to us through the years. As we retired you blessed us with receptions, cards, gifts, but most of all with a rich outpouring of your affection. Thank You! With much love and appreciation – Pastor Don The counselor from Cooper Central dropped off a donation for Hands of Jesus. She organized a Fun Week where kids could dress up in various ways each day if they brought a dollar donation. Also had a Wednesday Jeans day for teachers who brought $5. Others made free-will donations. She had hoped to raise $1000, and ended up with a total of $1708.18.

Members of Saint Luke’s: I want to thank you all who have graciously and generously given. What you have done has been a blessing in my families lives! Thank you for the warm welcoming, the love you’ve shown me, and for making me feel at home. Thank you all for having me on the worship team. It is a blessing and an honor. I look forward to worshiping with you all on Sunday God Bless you all! -Richard

Thank you for the lovely alter flowers and to Mrs. Taylor for bringing them to us. ~Ed & Phyllis Stewart

Such a neat example of kids and teachers helping their classmates/ students!
