Parish Ministries

We welcome you to learn about and consider joining some of our parish ministries. There are many great ways to get involved.

Parish Council

The Parish Council is composed of faithful men and women who are dedicated Orthodox Christians and who sacrifice their time, talents, and resources for the Church. We represent the parish, as clergy and laity together, and seek to fulfill the mission ascribed to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Learn More »

Sunday School

The Church School program fosters spiritual learning through age-appropriate lessons, which may include an introduction to Church feasts, fasts and liturgical practices, prayers, Bible stories, crafts and projects, and liturgical music. Learn More »

Senior Forum

Once our students move into high school and become young adults, they transition into a deeper examination of the Christian Faith as well. The Senior Forum, led by Mr. Jim Lionas and Pres. Julie Honeycutt, operates independently of the Sunday School and is open to all high school and college-aged students who are interested. Classes begin immediately after Holy Communion on Sundays and typically focus on discussing difficult present-day topics in light of our shared Orthodox faith.

Altar Servers

In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Altar Servers (a.k.a., Acolytes) assist the higher clergy during services. In addition to handling the cross, censer, candles, or liturgical fans in processions and entrances, they serve in additional ways during the Divine Liturgy, as well as other sacramental and prayers services. Any Orthodox Christian men (ages 7 and up) who are interested in serving in this manner should email Father James.

Bible Study Group

Join us for our daytime or evening Bible Study this semester. The group is open to all and meets on Thursdays. Learn More »

Prayer Team

Our parish Prayer Team is composed of dedicated members who pray together for parishioners and their loved ones who have requested the Church intercede to God on their behalf. Learn More »

Music Ministries

Music plays an integral role in the liturgical life of the Orthodox Christian Church. Learn more about the mixed voice choir for Divine Liturgy or the Byzantine Chanters for Vespers, Orthros, and other services. Learn More »

G.O.Y.A.

We believe that the goal of Orthodox Christian Youth Ministry is the integration of each young person fully into the total life of the Church. We believe that Orthodox Christians must commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily, and the Greek Orthodox Youth of America (GOYA) helps with this mission. Learn More »
