New Furnace for the Church 
23/2/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

The church has two furnaces actually, and thank God for that. When the one in the back (west end) of the church failed, the other one was able to pick up the heating slack and keep the pipes from bursting and from any other damage to the church. The old furnace was replaced this last week and if youd like to help offset this cost please contact our treasurer, Mikhail Fisenkov, at treasurer@stvladimiraami.org.

Those who are tithing are probably thinking: why are we asking for help? If everyone is tithing we shouldnt have to ask the parish for this type of help. That is correct! But not everyone has established a tithe. That is OK - we are not mad. :) But this is what each of us should be striving for: to answer this spiritual question (because tithing is not a financial question it is a spiritual one). So please have a look at this page, where you can learn more about how and why, we as Orthodox Christians, should make this decision long before we come to church on Sunday morning - and please contact Fr. Gregory or any of our Parish Council members with questions:

We Know - it is TOO WARM in the Barn! 
22/2/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


It took us a little while to figure this all out, but the biggest problem we have in the barn right now is that it is TOO WARM! Yesterday it was about 60F in the barn. Not a tropical paradise, but pretty comfortable. We saw people taking off their coats! So - if you are staying away from the services in the winter worship space because it is too cold please know - youre working with old information! Come join us this Sunday and every Sunday at 10 a.m. in the W3 (warm winter worship) space!

If you have sinned, acknowledge the sin and repent. God will forgive the sin and once again give you a new heartand a new spirit (Ez. 36:26). There is no other way: Either do not sin, or repent.

Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
21/2/21, 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: II Peter 1:20-2:9 & Mark 13:9-13
Tuesday: II Peter 2:9-22 & Mark 13:14-23
Wednesday: II Peter 3:1-18 & Mark 13:24-31
Thursday: I John 1:8-2:6 & Mark 13:13-14:2
Friday: I John 2:7-17 & Mark 14:3-9
Saturday: II Timothy 3:1-9 & Luke 20:45-21:4

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