Sponsor a Tree. A Fundraising Drive for St. Nicholas Church in McKinney, TX



Our new church is nearly complete, but the cost for landscaping is much higher than we expected or than we can afford.

Can you help us by sponsoring a tree or bush?


ALL the trees are REQUIRED by the City of McKinney, and the prices we've found are extremely good.

Benefactors will be commemorated at every Liturgy in perpetuity, and a plaque will be placed on the tree if the donations are made in somebody's memory.

    Another thing – I have had so many services and work commitments that the guys are suffering. I need to find a way to get 4 days out of the month, and would appreciate advice and prayer.

  3. This is a great way to finish the Church construction, Have you raised the needed Funds?  If not would you mind if I post this on my website?
