Welcome to the website of St. John the Divine Greek Orthodox Church. You will find a host of resources and information about ministries to help you in your walk of faith. We encourage you to take special note of the content bar at the bottom of the screen, which will connect you to our social media, such as Facebook and Twitter. In addition, we would love for you to visit our Church and worship with us every Sunday, beginning at 9 a.m. with morning prayers, followed by the Divine Liturgy at 10 a.m. We hope to see you soon at St. John the Divine and pray that our almighty God will bless and keep you always.
Launched in November 2013, Discovering Orthodox Christianity is a series of talks, shows, and presentations designed to introduce and explain the basic teaching of Orthodox Christianity. The series covers a wide range of topics in simple, easy to understand terms. Our very own Staci Spanos Gibson interviews various scholars and Priests from the Seminary and other locations.

Heresy is from the Greek word meaning ‘choice’…. But we are not permitted to believe whatever we choose, nor to choose whatever someone else has believed. We have the Apostles of God as authorities, who did not choose what they would believe but faithfully transmitted the teachings of Christ. So, even if an angel from heaven should preach otherwise, he shall be called anathema.— Saint Isidore of Seville
