Our Parish Ministries

We welcome you to learn about and consider joining some of our parish ministries. There are many great ways to get involved. Contact the Church office for further details.

Parish Council

The Parish Council is composed of faithful men and women who are dedicated Orthodox Christians and who sacrifice their time, talents, and resources for the Church. We represent the parish, as clergy and laity together, and seek to fulfill the mission ascribed to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Parish Council oversees all operations of the church and the parish community under the guidance of the priest.

Parish Council: Dr. George Lountos (President), Elizabeth A. Kostas-Polston (Vice President), Bruce Flanders (Treasurer), Christos Cambetes (Secretary), Gregory Nerantzis, Dimitri Rotov, Nicholas Carras, Thomas Tsianakas.

Altar Servers

In the Eastern Orthodox Church, altar servers assist the higher clergy during services. They might carry the cross, candles or liturgical fans in processions and entrances. The role of an altar server is an integral part of our worship services.

Bible Study Group

Details to be forthcoming.

Byzantine Choir

In keeping with the rich Orthodox Tradition of using Byzantine chant to convey the beauty of the liturgical hymns in our worship services, our Byzantine Choir seeks to strengthen this ministry by welcoming new members and offering a place to grow and flourish. Please contact the Church office if interested in participating in this ministry.

Church School

The Church School program fosters spiritual learning through age-appropriate lessons, which include an introduction to church feasts, fasts and liturgical practices, prayers, Bible stories, crafts and projects, and liturgical songs.

Youth Ministry (Hope/Joy & GOYA)

We believe that the Goal of Orthodox Christian Youth Ministry is the integration of each young person fully into the total life of the Church. We believe that Orthodox Christians must commit themselves to living the Orthodox Faith daily. Worship, Witness, Service and Fellowship are the natural expressions of that commitment. Our Hope/Joy & GOYA Ministries are grounded in these beliefs. Our curriculum is centered on providing a spiritual foundation for our youth with activities meant to foster fundamental Christian values and beliefs.  

Hope/Joy: Brandi Lahanas (Coordinator). Email: brandilahanas@gmail.com

GOYA: Christina Summers (Coordinator). Email: Mrs.Summers@aol.com
