Come and See!
Remember, the Livestream of Services on our Facebook page can serve a valid purpose for those who are not able to come. However, Facebook itself does not take the place of a 'Face to face' encounter with Christ in the Divine Services!
The Church of the East (and by this we mean Orthodox) has not 'institutionalized' (as the Latin West has) the imperative of 'obligation' to attend Divine Services. None the less, the need remains the same... without a consistent and regular participation in the Liturgical life of the Services, we stand bereft of the Grace imparted through these, the Divine Services.
Come and see! What we see, we imbibe. What we imbibe, we take in. What we 'take in'... (in the Divine Services) has the potential to impart Eternal Life!
Further, in consideration of the sanctity of the Divine Liturgy and the privacy of those attending, we will be Livestreaming the Liturgy until Holy Communion.
JOIN THE PLEDGE - STEWARDSHIP OF OUR CHURCH
In order to ensure the offering of Services and Sacraments at St. John, it is critical to have financial support from parishioners and visitors.
We ask that Parishioners (Members and Catechumens) make a commitment of financial support to the Church so that we may be in the position to cover our expenses and thereby keep our doors open to all who wish to come and worship. The submission of your commitment allows us to ascertain where we stand in meeting these needs.
You may submit your commitment via email with an intended weekly/monthly Pledge amount to: email@example.com. There are also paper forms available in the Church Narthex.
Sending Financial Contributions? Please mail to:
St. John Chrysostom Greek Orthodox Church
P.O. Box 90162
Nashville, TN 37209
As a general rule, we do not encourage the use of Venmo or Paypal, as it complicates the bookkeeping process and incurs additional fees that are born by St. Johns. For more efficient bookeeping and financial management, checks or cash are the preferred method of giving financial support to the church.
