Stewardship

Aloha! Although Hawaii is truly beautiful, it is also a challenging place to grow a mission. The high cost of living and our relatively small numbers adds to this difficulty. The faithful members of our mission are often stretched thin financially, geographically (this is truly a “big island”—some of our members drive 2-3 hours to church on Sunday) and in terms of time as they struggle to balance multiple jobs.

We are grateful for your gifts of love, and your prayers for us!

Designated Funds

In addition to “General” undesignated donations which support the day-to-day operations of the Mission, we have also setup a few separate designated accounts:

  • Hilo – goes to support the beautification of our church building on the Hilo-side as well as the development of “Holy Ascension Mission”
  • Building Fund – is strictly designated for the purchase land and construction. This is one of our major fundraising goals. We long to have a beautiful Orthodox temple for our worship, and as a witness to all of the people of the island.

“Thine own of thine own we offer unto Thee, on behalf of all and for all.” As these words sound out each day of Liturgy, we are reminded that all we have and hold is form the love of God and truly belongs to Him. Our stewardship should be based on this truth and we simply give back of our first fruits of what we have received in our lives.

“CHRISTIAN STEWARDSHIP” is nothing less than God’s call for us as His people to assist in managing the affairs of this earth with Him. We are called to be “friends of the bridegroom” and “co-workers with the Lord.” Our Stewardship consists of making responsible decisions about our time, health, talents, relationships, property, and all that makes up our lives.
