A Message From Father Demetri and Father Thomas
We would like to take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome and greeting to all who visit our Annunciation Church Family. Our Church offers the fullness of the Orthodox Faith, with all the pearls of its rich tradition. We personally invite you to become an active and integral part of our parish.
If you have spiritual concerns or if you would like to learn more about Orthodoxy, please feel free to contact our office at 336-765-7145 or email us at Fr. Demetri (firstname.lastname@example.org), Fr. Thomas (email@example.com.) Once again, we welcome you and look forward to serving you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church is a mid-size Greek Orthodox parish belonging to the Metropolis of Atlanta and is under the jurisdiction of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
Our parish is the spiritual home for almost 400 families. Mirroring the changes in the Triad our parish family now includes many Orthodox cultures as well as interfaith marriages. Together we represent a strong, active and dedicated Orthodox community.
We look forward to continued growth of our parish in both size and faith. Our services are offered in both Greek and English.
Our stewardship program encourages the faithful to give thanks to God for all our gifts. We do this by giving of our Time, our Talents, and our Treasure to His Church and to His glory. This offering provides for proportionate giving by our faithful, based on their ability and circumstance.

PARISH COUNCIL MEETING UPDATE
The following items of note resulted from business discussed at the April 8, 2013 Parish Council meeting:
Much progress has been made in the planning of improvements for the Narthex. The plans will be presented at the April 21st General Assembly. It includes the following:
Moving the candle sand area to where closets currently exist on the far side.
Venting the candle area for better air quality in the Narthex.
Having a mostly glass wall between the Narthex and Sanctuary.
Marble floor with some carpets & Acoustic tiles on the ceiling.
Just as we did last year, patrons in the first few pews during the Resurrection service will be escorted out the side doors of the Sanctuary to go outside for the Resurrection message.
Planning for the Easter picnic is going well. If you plan to attend, please contact Gus Kroustalis or Will Moye.
The Festival committee still needs more volunteers. Please sign up for shifts where needed.
OCMC Mission Coin Boxes were to be turned in Sunday, April 28th.
We will continue accepting boxes for a few more weeks. We would like to count up all the funds and send our check to OCMC before the end of May, so please return your box as soon as possible. Thank you for your efforts in this worthwhile cause.
