Welcome!

Welcome to Saint Peter & Saint Paul Orthodox Church’s website! If you are a first-time visitor or long-time member, please take a few minutes to explore our site. You will find information on our parish’s activities and events, as well as several good resources for those curious about the Orthodox Faith.

The Orthodox Church humbly, yet confidently professes to be the original Church of Christ, founded on the apostolic witness to our Lord, born on the Day of Pentecost, and for over 2,000 years making known to all nations the path to salvation through repentance and faith in Christ. Our parish family is dedicated to spreading the Good News throughout our local community and the world. Our members are made up of a variety of ethnic and social backgrounds, and our services are in English. We welcome all visitors, whether they are long-time Orthodox Christians, new converts, those rediscovering their faith after many years away or simply wanting to learn more about Orthodox Christianity.

For more information on our parish, to schedule pastoral counseling, visitations, baptisms, weddings or other sacraments, or to inquire more about our faith, please contact Fr. Herman Kincaid.

2016-17 Church School Starts

Our 2016-2017 school year consists of 9 classes from preschool through high school. As a parish in the Orthodox Church in America, our families are from a wide variety of backgrounds: Greek, Russian, Serbian, Romanian, Middle Eastern, converts, and American Orthodox. Our mission, with God’s help, is to establish a foundation of faith in the lives of our youth from which a life-long relationship with Christ and His Church will develop. Through our church school program and extra-
curricular activities, our focus is on:
  • Education: Studying Holy Scriptures, Holy Tradition, the doctrines of the Church and the lives of the Saints
  • Spiritual Development: Learning to draw closer to Christ through prayer, worship, and Holy Sacraments
  • Outreach: Spreading the Good 
    News to the surrounding 
    community, and serving those in need
  • Relationships: Fostering opportunities for our youth to build friendships with each other and the parish community. 
As always, there is no fee for our program, and visitors are welcome and encouraged to join a class for the day. See the latest bulletin for more information.
