These forms will not only help us compile our cleaning rotation list, but also allow families to vote on any issues brought to the parish as a whole, as well as be included in our forthcoming parish directory! You can hand your printed form to Mariana anytime you are at church. Thank you so much!

Sunday School - starts Sunday, March 5


The Sunday of Orthodoxy is an excellent way to kick off Sunday School. After coffee hour begins, children will get their food first and then go directly across the hall from the food room to the new "Sunday School Room," where there will be a lesson, followed by a quick craft. Please reach out to Crysta Mullis (336) 844-5391 with any questions. 


Upcoming special services

  • The Raper Family baptism after Vespers on Saturday, March 4. Please try to attend this glorious occasion in which our friends "put on Christ."


Father's Corner

There is now a "Father's Corner" section on the News page of our parish website. We will add more as they become available.

"Law of God" class

On most Thursdays Fr. Mark holds a class discussing the "Law of God" book by Priest Daniel Sysoev. Please see our Google calendar to attend the next class in-person and feel free to listen to previous classes on our Catechism page.

Edifying articles
