Weekly Sunday Bulletin – Sunday of Orthodoxy

Stewardship

We thank the 199 Stewards who have pledged for 2015.

From God every family in heaven and on earth is named.

Ephesians 3:15

We are stewards of our family through the influence that we have upon them. This influence may be for good or for evil. In The Moral Intelligence of Children, Robert Coles writes, “…the child is an ever-attentive witness of grown-up morality – or lack thereof; the child looks and looks for cues as to how one ought to behave, and finds them galore as we parents and teachers go about our lives, making choices, addressing people, showing in action our rock-bottom assumptions, desires, and values, and thereby telling those young observers much more than we may realize.” We exercise our stewardship of family by our actions more than our words.

Sacred Murals adorn the walls of all Orthodox Churches. Our Parish offers the opportunity for you to donate an icon in honor of a loved one or in memory of someone. Call our church to discuss. 9 Medallions and 1 Standing Saint, 3 Murals of Miracles, 2 dome icons, glass railing on balcony, glass doors to narthex are still available to be dedicated to a loved one. Contact our clergy.

Land Purchase

Throughout the past two decades we have sought to expand our church campus to allow for our growth. You may donate for the property to the South of the Church- half of the funds have been raised for this long awaited accomplishment.

Church Roof Renovation

Our greatest project this year is the completion of our dome restoration. Raising funds to complete the roof and then renovate the interior of the Church damaged by water over the years. Be a part of creating this landmark building in South Florida.

Endowment Program

Individuals, families, businesses or corporations may give to the Endowment fund and designate these funds to be utilized within the church. This giving can be done during your lifetime or designated in your will.
