Stewardship

The Life in Christ is all about Stewardship.  A "Steward" is one who is in charge of another's property.  Our faith, our life, our family, our finances, our time, and our parish are God's.  They are given to us by God for us to grow ever more like him. 

At St. Philips we're working very hard to be good and faithful servants of God.  People often ask how they can help us in the Holy Task of glorifying God and bringing Orthodox Christianity to our little corner of America.  

We ask that you too might consider being part of our efforts by doing the following:

Worship With Us – Whether you are a parish member or even an occasional visitor, you are part of our parish family, and when you pray with us you help to strengthen and encourage us. Check our calendar for services and events.

Spread the Word – Tell your family, friends, and neighbors about St Philip Orthodox Church and invite them to come and visit us. A personal invitation is the number one way the Church grows. Tell a friend to “Come and see!”

Pledge Your Support – You can help us grow by pledging your financial support. Even if you are not a full-time or even part-time member, your financial assistance can help make a difference. Our parish has many ministries that are growing and they are always in need of more resources.  Our beautiful church temple needs periodic maintenance to keep it glimmering as a spiritual lighthouse!  Pledge cards are available on the literature rack in the narthex, or you may use the online form below.

Get Involved with a Ministry – There are many ministry opportunities that contribute to a rich and inspiring community life. 

Pray For Us – Remember us in your prayers, asking that the Lord strengthen, help, and direct us according to His divine will.

Please examine the following resources as you prayerfully consider how you'll grow in stewardship.
