Tom Applegate-
Business Administrator

My family came to St Luke’s in 1960, on East Blvd (from Saint Mark’s). I was the last conformation class at “Old” St Luke’s. I was married here and both children were baptized here.

My wife Jenny and I moved to Incarnation in 1978. I am enjoying getting reacquainted with members from both congregations. I now have 7 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren, most live in the Charlotte area.

Please stop by the church office and say Hello.

Ami-Luise Vucovich-

Office Administrator
I was introduced to St. Luke’s by my husband Michael and is a helping member of the Live Stream Team to keep the services available during Covid. I found my Higher Power, God through my recovery program and look to take it one day at a time and to just let God take the wheel. I really enjoy being able to give back to the church and its members cause you have filled a space in my heart that I didn’t know I needed filling.
