 Other News and Updates

Our beloved parishioners always rejoice in the Lord!

                This is a friendly reminder that this coming Sunday our Annunciation Church will host the traditional, and well-known Stewardship Sunday.  Therefore, we encourage you ALL, as always, to take time, in order to first participate in our Annunciation Church's Worship.  After the completion of the Divine Liturgy, each one of you, along with your beloved families, are more than welcome to attend the Stewardship Luncheon in our Fellowship Hall. 

                During the Luncheon, you are also encouraged, to practice your voting rights, for the elections of the upcoming Parish Council.  You will also have the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful Christmas program of our distinguished Greek School.  As it is also customary, this coming Sunday, you will also find special trays in the Narthex of our Church, for you, to willingly and prayerfully return
your Stewardship cards. 

                We wholeheartedly thank you ALL in advance for the consideration and cooperation. 

May we ALL have a blessed remainder of the Nativity Season.    Amen!  

Parish Council Elections are today,  Sunday Dec. 11th.

 Elections will take place after Divine Liturgy
in the Fellowship Hall.

* You must be a Member in Good Standing to be able to vote in the elections. 

 The Candidates are:

Kiki Gonzales, Dr. Steve Hodges, Chris Lohr, Dr. Michael Olympio,
 George Petropoulos, Harry Plagianis, and Thomas Tsiaras.

· Stewardship Luncheon in the Fellowship Hall

The Greek School students will be singing Kalanta at the luncheon.


In the past, our GOYAn's have visited the homes of our Church families on January 1st.  This year, instead, we will be offering the Kalanta on Saturday, December 17th, after Divine Liturgy.  The GOYAn's will visit homes between 12:30 and 4:30, before meeting together for their December Synaxis.  If you do NOT wish the GOYAn's to visit your home for the KALANTA on the 17th, please notify Minas, our Youth Director, at (336) 765-7145 Option 4 or by Monday, December 12th.  Likewise, if you have not been visited in the past and would like to be ADDED to the list, please send your name, address and phone number to Minas.

This is the main fundraising event for the GOYA.  Proceeds are used to assist with some of the expenses of Youth Activities and also to allow GOYA to make donations to charities.  Your generosity is appreciated!



 You may send the POINSETTIA & CHRISTMAS CARD information by email at and pay online at by December 11th.
