    .....We are privileged that you have visited our Internet site. Thank you. We seek to provide regular teaching and preaching of the Word of God, meaningful times of worship, opportunities for fellowship, prayer, and outreach. As a church, we are committed to honor the Holy Trinity, the Holy Bible, and the teachings of all the Saints. Our Church is steeped in religious tradition and ceremonies that reach back 2000 years and that have remained ever relevant even until today. We pray that you have or will obtain a rich spiritual life and that one day you will visit with us. We pray in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!

    .....The Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom (d. 407 AD) is distinguished for its profundity and clarity, and is celebrated at every Eucharistic Assembly within the Orthodox Churches of the Easter Orthodox / Byzantine Rite unless the Church's calendar indicates that the Liturgy of St. Basil the Great (d. 379 AD) or the Liturgy of the Pre-Sanctified Gifts (compiled by Pope St. Gregory the Great (d. 604 AD)) is to be served.
