SAINT THOMAS GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH
2019 STEWARDSHIP PROGRAM
“But this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8)
For those that have not given for 2018 Stewardship, the time is now!!! A Parishioner is an individual 18 years of age or older or a family. Saint Thomas has approximately 640 parishioners. Last year’s daily pledge amount was $1.20! At an average daily rate, we are 92 cents short per parishioner of the required amount of $445,000 needed per our budget !!!
Why do we need to almost double our Stewardship? Many have simply not done so but it is needed. Our ministries are many. In not increasing our stewardship to this minimum level, we take our sacred ministries for granted.
1) Eliminate the gap between regarding budgeted stewardship and the budget of day to day ordinary expenses
2) Do not rely on a rain or shine Agora
If our 640 stewards give at an average of $775 our budget would be met $775 yearly equates to $2.12 daily
“For everyone to whom much is given, from him
much will be required; and to whom much has
been committed, of him they will ask the more” (Luke 12:48)
IT’S A LONG ROAD BUT GOD’S BEAUTY IS BREATHTAKING
