St. Lucas Lutheran Church Parish Records

Does anyone know if the parish records from St. Lucas (Bay View) are available and if so where or how?  Looking for family members that were there (GGrandfather made donation in 1886 in his will to church).  I've tried to email the church however I got no response.  
Thanks for your help.

Their records do not appear to have been filmed by the Mormons in the 1980s along with some others that held out; the active conservative protestant churches were generally more restrictive about that.
Try again via their website. A technique I've used successfully is to copy the message to the pastor, or someone other than the church secretary. Copying multiple staff is even better. I noticed that there is no link to any church history. Also, don't ask general questions because NO ONE has any time for history lessons: send names and dates to request baptism or marriage info. It's hard to believe they wouldn't have a parish archivist with a 150 year anniv. coming up in 2022.
