Parish Ministries

Agape Ministry / Food and Funds Drives

Every year we have several Food and Funds Drives conducted in our Church by various parish organizations.

 

Sunday School / Youth Group

The Sunday School program teaches our children and youth the Orthodox faith through teachings of the Bible, as well as materials obtained from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese. Our students and their families are encouraged to arrive to Divine Liturgy every Sunday promptly at 10:00 am to worship and pray together as a family. Children are encouraged to sit together with their teachers in the front left side of the church. Sunday School classes begin after Holy Communion, and are approximately 30-45 minutes long.  Students then join their parents during coffee hour after their class has concluded. Families with young children are requested to pick up their child each Sunday from the classroom at dismissal time, 12:00pm.

Greek School / Hellenic Education

The Socrates Greek School of our community offers lessons every Saturday from 10 AM to 1 PM. Also, Greek Dancing Group Lessons are offered at our church every Monday, at 6pm for Boys & Girls 7 years of age and older.

The Greek School's mission is to provide education and instruction of the Greek language, culture, and heritage; to enhance bi-cultural and bilingual awareness; and to promote the religious, moral and ethical values of the Greek Orthodox families.

The objectives of the Greek school are to present all aspects of the Modern Greek language to its students, including vocabulary-building, reading, writing and grammar with emphasis on conversation. Greek poems, prayers, songs and dances are used to teach the students about the Greek culture, heritage, history and Orthodox faith.

Faith & Culture Forum

The Faith & Culture Forum provides educational opportunities to foster the synthesis of Greek Orthodox faith and culture through public lectures, and other cultural experiences that support a greater integration of faith and life.
