Warrior Saints are thankful to God for the blessings He has given us. At St. George we show our gratitude to God by giving back to the world. We do so through the tithing of our time and money. We give of our time when we join the community in worship, fellowship and ministry. We give of our money through our tithes and offerings. When we give back, we become a part of something greater than ourselves and allow The Church to continue to thrive.
What is the appropriate amount to contribute to the Church? Christians have the responsibility to advance the Church’s mission through tithing. Tithing is defined in Scripture as 10% of your annual income. If you are not in a position to give 10% of your income, give what you can and consider it as a starting point. As a Warrior Saint, make it a goal to increase your tithe every year and challenge yourself to be crucifixional every year.
How can I Tithe and make my contribution? We encourage our stewards to use our PushPay app to tithe. PushPay is convenient and simple to use. Follow these simple steps to receive the PushPay application on your Smart Phone.
How can I include St. George in my estate plan? Your support of St. George can carry on past your lifetime by including a percentage or a specific amount of a gift in your will or revocable trust. Consult your attorney or legal advisor for the simple process of setting this up.

Hospital & Homebound Outreach The Hospital and Homebound Ministry program allows Warrior Saints® to visit parish members who are hospitalized or homebound and unable to attend Divine Liturgy. Volunteering can look like sitting and visiting with someone for an hour at the hospital or at home, or bringing meals to a parishioner in need. The results are transformative for both the person being visited and the person visiting.
