We thank God that you have chosen to celebrate Divine Liturgy with us today. Please feel free to participate in the Prayers and hymns of the Eastern Orthodox Church. There are Divine Liturgy books in the pews that are written in both English and Greek so you can follow along.

Please be aware that Holy Communion is for Christians that have been baptized in the Orthodox faith. At the end of the Liturgy everyone is welcome to go forward to receive the “Antidoron” (blessed bread) and blessing.

Your children are welcome to attend our Sunday School. If you have small children we also have a “Baby” room (with a changing table) on the left when entering the Narthex.

Information about Orthodoxy is available in the Narthex (on the left side as you exit the church) and in our book store that has display during our Fellowship Coffee Hour located in the Betty Reckas Cultural Hall (to the left of the church as you leave the church).

Please join us after Divine Liturgy for our fellowship coffee hour.
