The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of San Francisco Stewardship Ministry invites you to this month’s Ministries Series featuring two very important topics: “Giving Thanks and An Attitude of Gratitude” and “Getting on the Road to Tithing and Percentage Giving.” This zoom webinar will be held on Monday, May 2, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. PST. Participation is free and registration is available online here.

Having an “Attitude of Gratitude” can make all the difference with your stewards and donors. We need to recognize that people are giving from the heart, and we need to respond with thankful hearts. Metropolis Director of Development and Communications Kristen Bruskas will share new and creative ways to thank your congregation, your ministry leaders, and all those who contribute to the growth of your parish.

Everyone wants a stewardship magic trick to solve their problems. As it turns out, our Lord and the Church provided us the most effective answer. Giving in proportion to our blessings! In other words, percentage giving leading to the tithe. The question is, how can we do that in our churches today? Join Bill Marianes to discuss practical solutions to inspire the type of generosity our Lord instructed us to model so that our parishes will have everything they need and so much more.


For more information, please email or call 415-753-3075.
