Worshiping in the Barn Cement Floor is Poured First Liturgy this Sunday!!! 
19/10/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday to help with the HUGE amount of work that we accomplished emptying the barn and preparing for the new cement floor to be poured in the near future.

WHY ARE WE CEMENTING THE BARN FLOOR? Because we need a place to worship as a parish family for the rest of the pandemic. Meeting outside is no longer practical, and meeting in the church proper is WAY TOO SMALL with physical distancing requirements!

Make a donation to help cover the cost of the cement floor here:

HELP US CREATE WINTER WORSHIP SPACE!

Of course, you are welcome to use Tithe.ly or PayPal or any other method to donate you can find options on our parish Donate page:

ST. VLADIMIR DONATE PAGE

Our corporate worship is the MOST IMPORTANT THING we do as a parish family. We hope that everyone can make a donation to help offset the cost of the floor. Every little bit helps! Participate in this family project with your TIME (more work days are coming), TREASURE (visit the link above), or TALENT (more work days are coming)! May the Lord reward you in this life and the next for your care for His Church!

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
18/10/20, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Philippians 2:12-16 & Luke 6:24-30
Tuesday: Philippians 2:16-23 & Luke 6:37-45
Wednesday: Philippians 2:24-30 & Luke 6:46-7:1
Thursday: Philippians 3:1-8 & Luke 7:17-30
Friday: Philippians 3:8-19 & Luke 7:31-35
Saturday: II Corinthians 1:8-11 & Luke 5:27-32

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.
