In the New Testament, the word “steward” is rooted in the Greek word “oikonomos,” which means “the manager of a household." As a steward of the church, you're joining a community of individuals with the common responsibility of managing the church and its resources.
Giving money for the work of the church is one very important aspect of stewardship, but it is not the whole of stewardship. When stewardship is reduced to financial giving, the richness of a biblical symbol is dismissed. When financial giving is magnified to the whole of stewardship, the richness of a whole life committed to Christianity is missing.
Do you exercise good stewardship?
Christian giving is a responsive act. It represents gratitude to God. It is a symbol of self-giving. Therefore, giving is not a once-for-all event, but a regular part of life. It is a spiritual discipline that reminds us who we are and whose we are. Stewardship dues are the primary means of support for our church. Without these contributions we face difficulties operating our church to its fullest potential.
Many options are available to make giving easier.
Within our Church we have many organizations and committes that share the common goal of enriching the fellowship experience and giving back to our surrounding community.
We learn how to live as Christians together, supporting and guiding one another. Fellowship with one another requires hospitality, that is, being friends and being friendly.

ENDOWMENTS & SPONSORS
Remembering your family and friends with an honorary or memorial gift to the church is a beautiful act of kindness. Donations can be given in honor of births, baptisms, weddings, name days, holidays or in memory.
Businesses also have an opportunity to donate through sponsorships both monetarily and through in-kind donations. Advertise in our church newsletter, at our Church Festival or even donate supplies for our Sunday School, sponsorship opportunities are endless.
DONATE TO THE BUILDING FUND
In 2015, we began a major beautification project for the church, starting with the repari of the dome, interior repainting of the beloved icons, and re-installation of the chandellier.
In 2016, we replaced the old heating system and water heaters with new high-efficiency units.
In 2017, the carpeting in the entire chuch was replaced with beautiful ceramic floor. The church was also made completely handicap accessible.
Many improvements are still needed and can be obtained by your gracious giving.
