We are thankful to announce that St. Luke has been awarded a CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program loan to help with the costs of payroll for the next two months.  While this is technically a loan, the full amount of the loan will be forgiven if used in compliance with the program requirements for payroll costs, mortgage interest, and utilities; and if we maintain our current number of full-time equivalent employees. We give thanks to God for this blessing which will allow St. Luke to focus the generous donations we have received in areas of need and ministry without concern about layoffs of the staff during the next eight weeks.
