Becoming a Parish Member
Membership in the Orthodox Church begins at baptism (Chrismation for some) and continues throughout our life. We are united with Christ through the sacraments (or mysteries) of the Church, and through our faithful offering of our entire selves to Jesus Christ.
Our Archdiocese requires each parish to distinguish between voting and non-voting members. A voting member is over 18 years of age and turns in a signed stewardship commitment card, committing a portion of time, talent, and treasure to the church. The archdiocese also requires the voting member to remain current throughout the year on their commitments.
Keep in mind that true membership in the body of Christ involves living according to His word and within His Church.

What is Stewardship?
Why must I commit to give a specific amount?
What if I can't fulfill my commitment?
Stewardship is the combination of the talent, time, and treasures that you donate to the church.
Please keep in mind that your stewardship of money is kept in the strictest of confidence. However, we do compile the amounts anticipated to better plan our budget. There is no minimum amount required to be a member of this parish. We ask only that you offer what your heart and finances allow.
During the course of the year, we understand circumstances may change. Your stewardship is valued because it is made out of your love for God and His Church. Please do not be concerned if you are unable to meet your stewardship commitment- we are glad you are part of this parish!
