2022 Stewardship of
The Greek Orthodox Church of St. Demetrios

Stewardship as of Friday June 10, 2022
332 Stewards


Stewardship is our grateful and loving response to God’s love, grace and gifts to us. It is our personal commitment to God and His Church to ensure its vitality and continuous growth by joyfully and sacrificially offering of our talents, time and treasures that we have received from Him. Stewardship puts our faith in action and demonstrates our trust in God.

Η διαχείριση της Εκκλησίας μας είναι η ευγνώμων και στοργική απάντησή μας στην αγάπη, τη χάρη και τα δώρα του Θεού σε εμάς. Είναι η προσωπική μας δέσμευση προς τον Θεό και την Εκκλησία Του για να εξασφαλίσουμε τη ζωτικότητα και τη συνεχή ανάπτυξή της, προσφέροντας με χαρά και με μικρή θυσία τα ταλέντα, τον χρόνο και τους θησαυρούς μας που έχουμε λάβει από Αυτόν. Η διαχείριση της Εκκλησίας από εμάς τους ίδιους και όχι με ξένα χρήματα, θέτει την πίστη μας σε δράση και δείχνει την εμπιστοσύνη μας στον Θεό.

"A little girl noticed that after the collection was taken in a certain church, the ushers brought it up to the altar. She whispered to her mother, “Mommy, how do they get the money up to heaven?” The mother replied, “The church doesn’t send the money to heaven, but uses it to bring heaven down to us.” That mother could not have given a better answer. For the purpose of the Church is to get God’s heaven into each one of us. Jesus said, “The Kingdom of God is within you.”
