In the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, we read that there is “a time for every purpose…a time to plant, a time to reap….” Our challenge is to appropriately allocate our time to all the various demands that are made on it. This passage teaches us to make the most of God’s great gift of time.
The most personal, most appreciated and most unique gift that you can give is the gift of time – your time. That valuable 24 hours a day that only you can spend. As Christians it is also important to value the time we spend at church, in worship, service and activities. Every member of the Body of Christ plays a role, according to their gifts, in the life of their local church.
There are many ministries that need your support, such as our Alpha Omega (Senior Ministries), Altar Guild (Church Cleaning and Supplies), Church Music (Choir and Chanting), Daily Bread (Outreach Services), Fellowship Hour, Visitation, Youth Ministries (Hope, Joy and GOYA), and Sunday Church School.
We ask you to support these worthy ministries. Giving to His Church is a way to thank God for His grace and generosity. The question is not, “How much do I give to stay in the club?” or “What are the dues?” but “How can I thank God for my many blessings?” and "What can I do to help build these ministries?"
Before completing the 2020 Stewardship and Information Form, please give prayerful consideration to the commitment you are making. A check mailed to the church is most meaningful when accompanied by your presence, by your willingness to serve, by your prayers, and by your commitment. Giving is not a substitute for commitment – it is an expression of your commitment and an expression of thanks for the many blessings in your life.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God the Father and the Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you,
Fr. Nicholas Hadzellis
