TITHES & OFFERINGS – GIVING
We encourage everyone to tithe and give generously to support the ongoing ministry of St. Nicholas. Donations can be mailed to St. Nicholas or made electronically through the parish donation page or through Venmo.
There are great advantages when giving of your tithes and offerings to St. Nicholas using Venmo. The most significant advantage is that you nor the church has to pay the 3% processing fee and the $.30 transaction fee associated with other forms of electronic giving. Many parishioners are using Venmo. Visit this link to learn more [Venmo]. Keep in mind that our Venmo username is “StNicholas-OrthodoxChurch-1“.
Tithing using the ACH method is convenient and worry-free. Each month the set monthly amount that you have determined is given to St. Nicholas directly from your bank account. If you are interested in using this method of tithing, please complete the following form and submit it to Melissa Powell, treasurer, or Keith McAdams. Please direct all questions to our treasurer.

Every Christian feels a natural yearning of the heart towards God, a true desire to taste the sweetness of communion, of being with Him as He created us to be. This longed-for inner peace comes to us through the Mystery of Repentance, Holy Confession. Confessions are heard after Saturday Vespers or by contacting Fr. Michael for an appointment Tuesdays-Fridays. Booklets to assist you in preparing for confession are available on the Parishioners’ table or by visiting [Confession Guide].
