Welcome to the Historic Christian Church!
"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
Assumption Greek Orthodox Church offers a warm welcome to all visitors. You don't have to be "Greek" to belong to the Orthodox Church! All Orthodox Churches (whether Greek, Russian, Serbian, Romanian, etc) profess and maintain unchanged the same Faith that was taught to us directly by the Apostles themselves. If you've never been to an Orthodox service before, it will seem very foreign. What you are witnessing is the divine worship which, in certain aspects, dates back to the Old Testament. The prayers of the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom were composed in the 4th Century. The Divine Liturgy of St. Basil the Great which we use during Lent and Christmas is older. The Divine Liturgy of St. James that we use once a year on his feast day is older still (St. James was the first Bishop of Jerusalem and presided at the first Church council recorded in Bible in the Acts of the Apostles). We invite you to just come and take it all in. Don't worry about following along in the book, just absorb what is going on and join prayerfully in spirit. Our services are currently about 65% in English, but we are transitioning to more and more English. Our worship is focused on the Holy Trinity. It is not about "us," it is about God and our communing with Him. Come and see! Please also accept our invitation to join us for coffee fellowship downstairs after the Divine Liturgy. This fellowship, or "agape," is an extension of the Holy Liturgy.
