Stewardship

We thank the 286 Stewards who have pledged for 2015.

From God every family in heaven and on earth is named. Ephesians 3:15

As Orthodox Christians, we are stewards of our Church family – those with whom we worship, fellowship and serve the community. In the same way that we care for our immediate family, we also care for our Christian brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, sons and daughters.

You may do so by filling out a pledge card, visiting our website,
