Physically Distant, Socially Connected
It is a blessing to have you join us today. We hope that as you enter into the house of our Lord, you will be transformed during the Divine Liturgy through the humble prayers of the people, their expressions of faith, the all-praising hymns and the love of Jesus Christ.
The Mission of St. Demetrios
to proclaim the Good News of Salvation
through the Orthodox Christian Faith
for the glory of our Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We are a loving community of believers who journey
towards our Lord Jesus Christ and one another through our
WORSHIP, FELLOWSHIP, EDUCATION/SPIRITUAL GROWTH,
WITNESS, and SERVICE.
We invite all people to join us on this journey towards the Kingdom of Heaven.

HOLY COMMUNION NOTICE:
While everyone is welcome to worship with us, Holy Communion is reserved for those who have been Baptized and/or Confirmed in the Eastern Orthodox Faith and have prepared through prayer, fasting and recent confession.
All Guest and Newcomers are welcome to come forward at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy to receive the Antidoron, which is bread that has been blessed.
STEWARDSHIP, OFFERINGS AND ATTENDANCE
Bringing our stewardship offerings to the house of God is part of our worship of God. Our stewardship also supports our efforts to proclaim the fullness of the Gospel of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas through our ministries and outreach. Checks should be made out to St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, designated in the memo for Stewardship (use your stewardship envelope), and placed in the basket. Offerings for the poor and those in need (alms) should be designated in the memo for Altar Fund. (Altar Fund is the clergy discretionary fund to help those in need.)
You can also support St. Demetrios while shoping on smile.amazon.com and selecting Saint Demetrios as your charity of preference.
You may now make your Stewardship Contribution through Abundant e-giving or by Text: by texting SDGOCFW to 73256 followed by their desired gift amount. Or download the Abundant giving app to your phone from your favorite app store.
Our regular attendance
Attendance to Sunday and Weekday Divine Liturgies and other Divine Services are important for our spiritual growth and relationship with Christ as Orthodox Christians.
The worship experience is enhanced by having your children participate. Please help them learn proper behavior and reverence while in the Church. Teach them to cross themselves, venerate the Icons, & respond prayerfully “Lord have mercy.” If they become too loud, please take them to the Narthex/Quiet Room for a brief stay and return as soon as they have calmed.
