Please join us for Greek Fest prep! 

 We will be at the hall and on the grounds every day and every evening until the festival so come when you can. We will be cooking, sorting, pricing and preparing all merchandise for sale and display, decorating, cleaning, and just having a great time together. The more hands we have, the lighter the work load and there is much to do. There will be dinner served every night - get ready to work up an appetite! Thanks to all for your continued support and looking forward to seeing all of you there.

As all of you know, we have ministries in the Church that help those in need:

1. The St. Nicholas Corner provides a food and clothing pantry for the poor or needy. This is a form of outreach that, when well stocked, is available at a moment’s notice for any who might come to us in need of those basic survival necessities.

2. We also have the Agape Fund which supports occasional acts of mercy provided that we have the properdocumentation for the need. This also is an outreach ministry.

3. However, we do have an in-reach ministry called the St. Luke’s Medical Fund. This provides financial assistance to take care of medical bills for our own members who are not able to make ends meet.

If anyone would like to contribute and be involved in any of these important ministries of the Church, please contact George Maillis.
