Holy Apostles Orthodox Church - Upcoming Events http://holyapostleschurch.org/ 60 Mortgage Update http://holyapostleschurch.org/news_080101_2.html Sat, 01 Feb 2014 14:25:55 -0500 With all the physical improvements that have taken place in the last year that we can see, it is important to also know about what has been done that is not necessarily so appartent. In 2007, we began to pay off a mortgage for 5006 E. Trindle Road. Here are the financial totals for the end of 2007. Thank you all for your good stewardship in the past year, and let's keep things going and do the same in 2008!!!<br /><br />Extra Principal in 2007:.....................$37,862.96<br />Total Principal paid in 2007:..............$43,654.77<br />Initial payoff date:.............................1/31/2027<br />Current payoff date:..........................9/30/2020<br /><br />NOTE: Amount of time taken off the mortgage: 6 years, 4 months!<br /> Holy Apostles Orthodox Church http://holyapostleschurch.org/news_080101_2.html 2008 Mission Planning Grant http://holyapostleschurch.org/news_080101_3.html Sat, 01 Feb 2014 14:25:55 -0500 With great joy I can announce that recently an anonymous donor generously gave the Orthodox Church in America $60,000, specifically allocated to the Missions Department. This new money has enabled us to be re-awarded the Mission Planning Grant in 2008! Thank God for this wonderful person and their donation!<br /><br />We should be reminded of the verse from St. Mark's Gospel: &quot;Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.&quot; (11:24)<br /><br />Thank you all for your fervent prayers over this, and let us now work to be good stewards of this great gift. I had preached that if we were faithful, God would provide. Well, the most appropriate thing I can think of to say over this are the words we pray at the Great Blessing of Water on Theophany: &quot;Great are Thy works, O Lord, and marvelous are Thy works, and there is nothing we can say to sufficiently hymn all Thy wonders!&quot;<br /> Holy Apostles Orthodox Church http://holyapostleschurch.org/news_080101_3.html GIANT Gift Cards http://holyapostleschurch.org/news_080101_1.html Sat, 01 Feb 2014 14:25:55 -0500 GIANT gift cards are still available for purchase from Elizabeth Gaither after Liturgies at Fellowship Hour.
