AND – we still have until June 30, to take advantage of our matching gift program, wherein any new pledges or increases in existing pledges up to $1,400 will be matched, in effect doubling your contribution


If you are at all considering either increasing your pledge or pledging anew, NOW is the time to act and take advantage of the match, Click here to enter your pledge. or email Gary George


We are so grateful to all who have pledged at any amount as it has enabled all parishioners and guests to experience true Orthodox fellowship in a safe, clean, welcoming atmosphere.

Fellowship Founders Pledge Match Program

Originally announced to the parish on April 19, 2018.


Fellowship Founders ‘Pledge Matching Program’

To Complete the Fellowship Hall Renovation

From now through June 30, 2018, every new or increased gift or pledge will be effectively DOUBLED by matching donors, up to a total of $13,000!


Dear Christ the Savior – Holy Spirit Parish Faithful,

Christ is Risen! Indeed He is Risen!

We’ve all enjoyed the benefits of an updated Fellowship Hall to complement our beautiful church. Now it’s time to complete the project! A renovated kitchen area, updated restrooms and acoustical treatments remain on the to-do list. Based on current estimates, this will require an additional pledged amount of approximately $30,000.

We’re close. And with a final push we can get this important effort completed – with minimal use of additional parish funds.


Pledge Matching

To achieve this the Fellowship Founders committee has initiated a “Pledge Match” program to help get close to that $30,000. We have commitments from some of our parishioners to match any “new” or “increase to old” donations, up to a total $13,000, received during the period April 22, 2018 through June 30, 2018.

We know that you all support this effort. If you have not pledged yet for any reason, by pledging now your gift will be DOUBLED. One hundred dollars becomes two hundred. Five hundred dollars becomes one thousand. Two thousand becomes four thousand. Your donation is twice as meaningful. No pledge is too small.

Likewise, if you have already pledged please consider offering just a bit more, say 10-15%. Search your heart and your pocket book to see if you can add to your original pledge. Your increased pledge will be doubled.

To make this straightforward you can now pledge online by clicking on this link and completing and submitting the form. If you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact any of the Fellowship Founders team.

We thank you for any consideration. WE ARE CLOSE!

In Christ,

Your Fellowship Founders Committee
