Sharing the Gospel in Orange County since 1961.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version (NIV).
Do you feel burdened? Are you in need of spiritual support and nourishment? Are you looking for a place to come and find rest in the midst of Christ-loving believers?
In a world where moving "100 miles an hour" is normal, the Greek Orthodox Christian Church, the fullness of God's revelation of Himself in the midst of His creation, calls us to slow down and meet God in the present moment. In being present, and learning how to encounter God and one another, we slowly begin to learn what it means to “...love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind, [and] ...love your neighbor as yourself". Matthew 22:37,39 New King James Version (NKJV)
