Future Home of Saint Ananias Orthodox Church
Our December/January Stewardship Drive: "With God all things are possible"
The General Assembly of Saint Ananias Orthodox Church on November 29th 2015 voted unanimously to purchase the Church and Annex on 3407 Bellemeade, Evansville, Indiana 47714. We now ask all of our members and friends to offer to the Lord financial gifts as we take the next step forward in planting an Orthodox Church in the Tri State area. Our parish will be collecting funds in order to raise $75,000 in December/January. Any money in excess of this will be used to update the property. Friends may give gifts using the PayPal button below.
Also you may write your checks to "St. Ananias Orthodox", and put "Building" in the remarks column. Our address is Saint Ananias Orthodox, 4411 Washington Avenue, Evansville, IN 47714. We will provide you a letter of receipt for IRS tax deductible purposes if you are not a member of our parish; otherwise, your "Giving Statement" will include your gift as a member. If you are a member you may simply wish to put your gifts in a sealed envelope in our offering basket during Liturgy.
Our goal is to raise the $75,000 by mid January so that we complete the sale as Bishop ANTHONY visits our parish on January 30-31. Remember that we have pre-qualified for a $275,000 loan, and already have $25,000 in our building fund. In the next week you will be receiving a mailing regarding this Stewardship Drive, the Luncheon with Bishop ANTHONY at the Acropolis on Sunday, January 31st after Liturgy, and the next steps forward.
Please pray about what type of gift you should give to this worthy endeavor. As our Council Chairman said in Sunday's meeting, "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity". For those of you who have lived in Evansville for some time, you know that such churches do not come up for sale, especially at this price.
Christ is born! Glorify Him!
