Praying
STEWARDSHIP 

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others,

faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”

1 Peter 4:10

I hope and pray that this letter finds you and your family in excellent physical as well as spiritual health, having joyfully celebrated the Holy Nativity and Epiphany of our Lord and Savior!

 

As your interim pastor, it is my privilege to invite you to become a 2021 / 2022 Steward of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of North Miami. I assure you that your financial contribution will be used to advance the Eight Pillars of Orthodox Vibrancy that I have outlined in my Sunday Sermons and Bulletin Reflections.

 

Stewardship is the way we live out our lives as children of God and as baptized members of God’s household here on earth.  As the scriptural verse quoted above indicates, stewardship is a way of life, a way of being in the world. It is an attitude in which we acknowledge that all that we have and all that we are is a gift from the loving God who generously entrusts us with His Grace.

 

May your love and Christian generosity be returned to you and your family in the form of our Lord’s abundant blessings.  

 

In His Service,

Rev. Dr. Frank Marangos

Interim Pastor

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a member of the parish?

Membership in the Orthodox Church begins at baptism (Chrismation for some) and continues throughout our life. We are united with Christ through the sacraments of the Church and through our faithful offering of our entire selves to Jesus Christ. Our Archdiocese requires each parish to distinguish between voting members and non-voting members. A voting member is over 18 years of age, submits a signed stewardship commitment card, and commits a portion of his/her time, talent and treasure to the Church.

What if I cannot fulfill my stewardship commitment?

During the course of the year, people's circumstances change. Your stewardship is valued because it is an expression 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 a part of this parish.

Why do I need to complete this form / can't I just send a paypal donation?
