December 11th - Last Day to bring a gift for a child in need
We are collecting toys for homeless children for Christmas. If you would like to donate a toy and bring a smile to a child's face, please bring one in on Sunday, December 11th. It does not have to be wrapped as wrapping will take place on the 15th.

Thank you so much.

Teachings of the Church
What does our Holy Orthodox Church teach about the purpose of life? What does she teach about the soul and what happens when we die? What about things like anger, depression, anxiety and fear?  What does the Church teach about money, technology, art and entertainment; or about sexuality, gender, love and marriage? What does the Church teach about being a man, or being a woman or raising children? 

Join us for a weekly, in-person discussion group to learn and discuss the Church's profound and life-changing answers to these questions and many others
