Becoming a Member
St. Nektarios is a full stewardship parish that requires no minimum pledge in order to be a member. Our Stewardship Program encourages parishioners to pledge donations in any amount, either as one-time, regular, or periodic payments. Our annual Stewardship Pledge Drive occurs in the fall for the next calendar year—parishioners are usually contacted for participation at that time, although new members and current members may complete a Stewardship Pledge Card at any time.

For more information about becoming a member, or to have a Welcome Packet mailed to you, please call the church office at (704) 708-4669. Our Welcome Packet includes a Membership Registration form and a Time and Talent Survey, which should be completed and returned to the church office. Stewardship Pledge Cards can also be obtained at the office.
A member in “good standing,” as defined in our By-Laws, is one who:
- Is 18 years of age or older.
- Was baptized according to the rites of the Orthodox Church or was received in to the Orthodox Church through Chrismation.
- Lives according to the faith and cannons of the Church, and has signed a stewardship pledge card.
- Abides by the “Special Regulations and Uniform Parish Regulations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America,” and the local Parish By-Laws.
Note: To be able to vote at a general assembly or in parish elections or to run for parish council, a member in good standing must also have been active in the liturgical life of the church for six months.
