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, January 11, 2015 - Sunday After Theophany

Today we continue to celebrate the feast of Theophany, the feast of our Lord’s baptism in the Jordan river, the feast of the revelation of Jesus as the Son of God, and of God as Trinity. This feast is also often called the “Feast of Lights.” We see it as the fulfillment of Hanukkah, which is the Jewish feast of lights, a celebration of the miracle that took place when the Temple in Jerusalem was rededicated. Although there was only enough oil for the menorah in the Temple to burn for one day, it miraculously kept burning for 8 days.

Nativity of the Lord - December 25, 2014

Christ is born! Glorify Him!

There are times when we may feel foolish or ignorant. In fact we often are foolish, and we certainly are ignorant. Our understanding is limited; we don’t know everything. Sometimes, though, our lack of knowledge or wisdom or wherewithal may depress us. Or we may be filled with pride because we think we are wiser or more intelligent than other people. Either way, there is something we are missing.

Eve of the Nativity - December 24, 2014

“In many and various ways” God has communicated with mankind. He spoke through the prophets. He speaks through His creation. And He sends Angels who bear His message to mankind. The word “angel” actually means “messenger.” In that sense, all those who carry God’s message and proclaim it to others are “angels.” God has sent many such angels - both the bodiless ones from Heaven, and the human ones who are His servants - to the human race to reveal the truth. But now, in “these last days,” it says in Hebrews, He has spoken to us by His Son, who is the “brightness of His glory,” and the “express image of His person” and upholds “all things by the word of HIs power.”
