Matthew 6:19-21
Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.. (NKJV)

Your support is greatly appreciated.  Through your tithes and offerings the Church, especially the local parish, such as this one, can continue to function and pay its expenses (utilities, maintenance, clergy support, etc) as well as accomplish its mission of reaching out to the local community.

The Biblical model of giving is to “tithe” or give 10% of your income.  Not does the Lord ask us to give in this way, He also asks us to make offerings above and beyond the tithe. Not only that, but He wants us to do so cheerfully (see the Bible verse above).  This might be difficult, especially in a day and age where being in debt has become normal.  None the less, the Lord wants us to give first to Him, through His Church.  Consider how much you spend on entertainment (Netflix, movies, games...) or electronics or on eating out, or coffee runs.  It isn't wrong to enjoy those things but God wants us to learn to put Him first.  To see how you "stack up" take a look at the chart on the left.  If tithing is something new to you, then at least try to give some percentage of your income that is manageable with your budget.
