The Orthodox Christian Stewardship Program allows our Parish to meet the financial needs of its annual Ministries
and Operating Budget. Consequently, our parishioners are Stewards of Holy
Apostles Greek Orthodox Church rather than dues payers, and they
accept direct responsibility for the financial support and progress of our Church and its mission. Your free will Orthodox
Christian Stewardship commitment is a vital part of advancing the work of Christ and our Orthodox Faith in our Parish and

we consider God’s blessings, Orthodox Christian Stewardship reminds us that the gifts God has bestowed upon us are not
our own; that we have a trusteeship over them and not an ownership. Stewardship is acknowledging that God is the source
of each gift that has been received and each possession that has been accumulated. Stewardship means to give a portion
back to God, as a direct way of expressing our thanksgiving to Him for these gifts. We ask that you prayerfully consider
your 2016 Orthodox Christian Stewardship Commitment, commensurate with your resources and your gratitude for the bounties
and blessings our Lord has bestowed on you. The financial level at which you arrive should be a spiritual expression
of gratitude and love to God for all you have received.
