Stewardship

We thank the 343 stewards who have pledged for 2014.

May we have your pledge for year 2014?

You can now easily pledge electronically.

Visit http://stdemetrios.org/our-parish/stewardship/

Or, you can fill out a card available both at the welcome desk and at the desk in the south narthex. You may also pledge by calling (954)467-1515 and asking to speak with Kiki.

In I Corinthians 16:2 we read “On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his/her income.” In this way, we offer back to God’s Church the “first fruits” of our labor, realizing that all we possess comes from Him.

In II Corinthians 9:7 we read “Each person should give what he/she has

decided in his/her heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion,

for God loves a cheerful giver.”

Thank You!

In order to register for any of the youth or adult programs, you must be a pledging member of St. Demetrios Church.
