Thank You For Supporting Your Church and It's Ministries!
Our Parish Vision:
To understand, practice, and proclaim the Orthodox faith, and make the church the center of family life.
Our Parish Mission: To engage our faithful through our ministries and outreach programs.
Our Parish has flourished since its inception in 1974! Our goal is not to only sustain but grow our Parish membership, ministry offerings, and outreach opportunities. To prepare our community for our children’s children, we need to keep imagining the possibilities for our future! We have dedicated resources to our Pastoral Assistant to the youth and are committed to increase our spend on Youth Ministries year-over-year.
We need to ensure St. Nectarios has the ministries to keep our children close to God and our Orthodox faith!
Just like anyone of our homes or businesses, the Church has expenses to operate. Currently, our expenses are just over $1,000,000 per year. Ask yourself how much you spend on utilities, TV, cell phone, and other monthly expenses?
A Stewardship offering of $235 per month (a total of $2,800 for the year) supports a full day of operations for St. Nectarios! Sponsoring one or more days of operations through your Stewardship will provide many more programs for our youth, family activities, and outreach for people in need. Imagine the many ways St. Nectarios can grow and serve you and your family with a larger budget.
We are changing our philosophy on Stewardship: let’s stop trying to avoid a budget deficit and build a surplus that will allow us to make St. Nectarios the Parish of choice, the Parish that lives its spiritual and family-centric vision!
Whether you are new to the Parish or have been a steward for many years, welcome to St. Nectarios Greek Orthodox Church of Palatine, Illinois! We invite you and your family to participate in our abundant spiritual, outreach, social, and youth ministries. Help us grow our ministries and outreach programs with dedication of your time, talent, and treasures to your Church. The Church is here for you and your family to proclaim to the Orthodox faith and make the Church the center of your family’s life!
The Saint Nectarios Stewardship Committee has wholeheartedly adopted our Parish Vision and Mission and strives to serve our community consistent with our Orthodox Church Stewardship principles and our Parish Vision and Mission! Orthodox Christian Stewardship is a way of life, which acknowledges accountability, reverence, and responsibility before God. A primary goal of Stewardship is to promote spiritual growth and strengthen faith, consistent with our Parish Vision! Stewardship is a dedication of time, talent and treasures. We do not see our role as a committee as solely devoted to financial Stewardship; we focus our efforts on growing participation in our various ministries and increasing our community outreach programs. In fact, in 2017 our community’s Ministry Coordinator became a standing member of the Stewardship Committee.
Examples of projects we have worked on illustrate our focus on Ministries and outreach and our attempt to listen to our Parish’s wishes and dreams. After completing a Parish survey, the Stewardship Committee made several recommendations, including optimizing our Youth Ministries and Sunday School Ministry, that were adopted by the Parish Council, and participation in these ministries increased substantially. We have also worked with our other Parish Ministries to increase outreach programs, align our Ministry programs with the Parish Vision and Mission, and increase our presence in the community, such as with the Palatine Chamber of Commerce.
At the heart of our committee’s work is the desire to make our Parish the best it can be, a welcoming Parish, a faithful Parish, and a financially strong Parish that can support, grow, and bring out the best in our Ministries. To do this, we need to do our best to listen to our all of our Parish, regardless of age, whether an existing Steward for decades, years, days, or a prospective Steward. Our commitment is to continue to find ways to hear the hopes and dreams of our community, to strengthen our ministries and outreach programs, and grow Parish participation.
