The most important way to support the life of our community is regularly to pray for us!
“O Lord Jesus Christ our God, who in Thy mercy and loving-kindness dost regard the prayers of all who call upon Thee with their whole heart, incline Thine ear and hear my prayer, now humbly offered unto Thee: Be mindful, O Lord, of Thy Holy Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church and especially the parish of St. Christina of Tyre; confirm and strengthen it, increase it and keep it in peace, and preserve it unconquerable forever.”
There are also a number of ways you can financially support our parish:
We are excited to be able to offer Online Giving! As a church that seeks to serve, we want to provide you the convenience of being able to give the way you want, whenever you want. Online Giving offers you the opportunity to make secure, automatic contributions from your bank or credit card account to our church. Online Giving costs you nothing and provides many advantages to you and the church. You can make one-time or schedule recurring payments to a number of our church ministries.

No Cost Giving....
Amazon Smile - (NEW!) If you shop at amazon.com go instead to smile.amazon.com, search for and select St. Christina of Tyre Mission (our official name with the IRS) as your charity to support. Use the smile.amazon.com address when you shop at Amazon and .5% of qualifying purchases is donated to the church.
Escrip - Visit www.escrip.com. Indicate that you want to support St. Christina Orthodox Church, register your debit/credit cards, and as you use them at participating stores (both brick & mortar as well as online) a percentage of your purchases is donated back to St. Christina's.
Lucky's/FoodMax “SHARES” Cards - We have these cards at the church. Ask Maha, our Treasurer or anyone in the choir for one. You scan this card when you shop at Lucky's and St. Christina receives a donation.
GoodSearch & GoodShop - Visit www.goodsearch.com and tell them that you want to support St. Christina Orthodox Church. GoodSearch is a Yahoo-powered internet search engine that donates a penny every time you search for something on the internet. GoodShop is a portal that when you go through it to your usual online stores, the stores donate a percentage back to the Church. GoodShop also collects coupon codes, so make sure to check in at GoodShop before doing any online shopping.
We participate in a number of programs which benefit the parish without costing people any extra money. Over the years we have received thousands of dollars in donations by people (members and friends of our church) using these and it didn't cost them anything.
However you choose to support our church's life and mission, thank you!
