Deuteronomy 16:17 – Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God that he has given you.
St. Nicholas Church is a full stewardship parish that does not have a minimum pledge to be a steward. Our Stewardship Program encourages parishioners to pledge donations in any amount, either on a one-time basis or through regular contributions. All pledges remain confidential. Our annual Stewardship Pledge Drive occurs in the Fall for the next calendar year. All parishioners are contacted at that time. New stewards may complete a Stewardship Pledge Card at any time.
A member in good standing is a steward who is 18 years of age or older, was baptized according to the Sacrament of the Orthodox Church or was received into the Orthodox Church through Chrismation, lives according to the faith and canons of the Church, and has signed a stewardship pledge card and abides by the “Special Regulations and Uniform Parish Regulations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America,” and the local Parish By-Laws.
NOTE: To be able to vote at a General Assembly, in parish elections or to run for parish council, a steward in good standing must have been active in the liturgical life of the church for one year.
