Welcome to Our Parish!

Greetings in the name of our Lord and God and Savior, Jesus Christ!

We welcome you to the website of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. We are a growing community made up of members from a variety of backgrounds and drawn together by the healing and transfiguring Light of Christ, which we've found in the Orthodox Christian faith.  The purpose of this website is to provide a brief introduction to the Orthodox Church and to our parish.  We welcome visitors to our services, which are all in English.  If you are a newcomer or a visitor from another parish, please contact our pastor, Fr. Daniel, with any questions you may have.  If you are discovering Orthodox Christianity for the first time, we invite you to "come and see" as you join us in worship of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Christ Is In Our Midst: Sunday Sermons

Sunday, October 11, 2015 - Remembering Through Icons

“The All-compassionate God, ever wishing to arouse us to perfect recollection of His becoming man, hath delivered this precept unto men, namely, that His venerable form should be depicted through the painting of icons; so that beholding it with our eyes, we might believe what we have heard by word, and might clearly know the accomplishments and names, the appearances and the contests of the saints, and might also know Christ, the Crown-bestower, Who granteth crowns unto the holy athletes and martyrs, through whom now the Church yet more manifestly holdeth fast the true Faith and doth venerate the icon of Christ’s incarnation.” ~ Ikos of Orthros Canon for Sunday of 7th Ecumenical Council

Sunday, October 4, 2015 - "Hilarious Giving"

We’ve all heard it said that we reap what we sow. Usually this is said with a negative connotation. If we treat others badly, we can expect to be on the receiving end of some unkindness. Or if we do a shoddy job of building something, we can expect it to fall apart.

Sunday, September 27, 2015 - "By Your Patience..."

If you’ve ever tried to keep a house clean with small children running around, you know how challenging that can be. Messes appear at lightning speed. As soon as you deal with one thing, there’s something else needing to be cleaned up, straightened, or fixed.
