Stewardship is caring for the needs of others.
Stewardship is offering one's self to God as He offered Himself to us.
Stewardship is what a person does after saying "I believe..." as proof of that belief.

Stewardship: A Way of Life
The Church belongs to each of us. It is our second home. It is a place to come together to learn the teachings of Jesus Christ and enjoy Orthodox Christian fellowship. In order to sustain a place of worship, we are obligated to fulfull certain needs, both functional and financial. As our Church community grows, our needs increase. The Church requires the time, talents and treasures of all our members to function successfully.
Orthodox Christian Stewardship is a way of life, which acknowledges accountability, reverence and responsibility before God. Stewardship begins when we believe in God, to whom we give our love, loyalty and trust and act on those beliefs. As Stewards, we affirm that every aspect of our lives comes as a gift from Him. Stewardship calls on the faithful to cheerfully offer back to God a portion of the gifts with which they have been blessed.
An Active, Annual Committment
An Orthodox Christian Steward is an active participant in the life of the Church. The parish encourages all who accept the Orthodox Faith to become practicing Stewards. Each year the Steward is expected to carefully review his or her personal circumstances and make a commitment of time, talent, and treasure to support the Parish and her Ministries.
We are asking all parishioners to give 3% of their income to help reach the church's budget goal
