St. George Stewardship 2013
"I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit"
How do we bear fruit for Jesus Christ? We bear fruit when follow His example and love, serve and support the Church which is His Body. We bear fruit through generosity and devotion, especially in the stewardship of His blessings in our life. Just as the vine bears fruit only through its branches, so Jesus has chosen to work in the world through us. We bear fruit when we serve and support God and His Church.
This past year we have grown and developed our many youth ministries, our seniors have enjoyed fellowship together and our Philoptochos has served our church and the broader community. The Lecture Series and Bible Classes have provided ways to learn more about our faith. The Rachmaninoff Choir concert and our Greek Festival provided wonderful ways to welcome guests to our community. In the coming year we will work together to expand our Religious Education, Greek School, Greek Dance Troupe and Community Outreach. We ask you to support these worthy ministries.
Giving to His Church is a way to thank God for His grace and generosity. The question is not, "How much do I give to stay in the club?" or "What are the dues?" but "How can I thank God for my many blessings?" Before completing the Commitment Card and Information Form, please give prayerful consideration to the commitment you are making. A financial contribution to the church is most meaningful when accompanied by your presence, by your willingness to serve, by your prayers, and by your commitment. Giving is not a substitute for commitment - it is an expression of your commitment.
"By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit." (John 15:8).
Yours in Christ,
