Parish Life Guild (PLG)

The PLG consists of a group of parishioners, nine women and nine men, each serving a three-year term, dedicated to St. Luke’s numerous fellowship events and missions fund distribution. The Guild meets on the first Monday of each month to carry out the PLG mission: to actively involve the people of St. Luke’s as a community of faith, to develop and implement programs for ministry, and to support our parish as it reaches out to others in the Lord’s name.

The PLG’s Missions sub-committee organizes the church’s financial support for charitable organizations. These funds are generated by two key events: the annual Holiday Fair and the Auction, which raise $30,000 to $40,000 combined. Our 2014 Missions included…

  • Community Soup Kitchen and Outreach Center
  • Food Bank Network of Somerset County
  • From Houses to Homes
  • Interfaith Hospitality Network of Somerset County
  • Kiwimbi International, Kenya
  • The Lion of Judah Academy, Tanzania
  • The Philadelphia Project
  • Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders

The Fellowship sub-committee organizes and hosts events that include:

  • The Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
  • Lobster Fest
  • Maundy Thursday Dinner
  • Newcomers Reception
  • Summer Picnic
  • Advent Wreath-Making
  • Parish Christmas Party

The Scholarship sub committee receives scholarship applications from college-bound parishioners and awards scholarship funds accordingly. Help the Education Scholarship Fund! Click on this link to visit Amazon.com.    (St. Luke’s receives a bonus back for every Amazon order through this link.)
