Welcome to our Christian Orthodox Mission website


    We invite you to look around and get a feel for our church. If you're not currently  member of our church - we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one  of  our weekly services.  And of course, feel free to reach out and call our Priest Father David. Most people think of Greek Orthodox, Russian or other East European Orthodox Countries when they see the term “Orthodox”. We are a community of English-speaking Americans and our services are in English. Our Archdiocese is originally from Antioch, which can trace its roots back to the same Antioch mentioned in the book of Acts where believers were first called “Christians.”
    The Antiochian Orthodox branch of Orthodoxy   was brought to America by immigrants starting more than 100 years ago. Now many parishes in North America are like ours, English-speaking Americans from various religious, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
   
We invite you to visit our small but growing community. Be sure to check   our calenda
r for service times. If you have any questions, or if you are an Orthodox Christian and plan to receive Holy Communion, please email Fr David directly or call him at (425) 737-6123.
    We hope you and your family will have a warm and spirit-filled experience with us as we worship and fellowship together at our services.   

Many blessings to you,
Fr. David Sommer

St. Timothy the Apostle (January 22)

On January 22, we commemorate the holy Apostle Timothy, disciple of the holy Apostle Paul.

Timothy was one of the Seventy Apostles, born in Lystra in Lycaonia.  Timothy first met with the great Apostle Paul in Lystra and w
as himself a witness when Paul healed the one lame from birth (Acts 14:8-10).  Later, Timothy constantly traveled with of Paul, to places like Achaia, Macedonia, Italy and Spain.  Sweet i
n soul, he was a great zealot for the Faith, and a superb preacher.  Timothy contributed much to the spreading and establishing of the Christian Faith. Paul calls him “my own son in the faith” (I Tim. 1:2).  After Paul’s martyrdom, Timothy had John the Evangelist as his teacher.  But when John was banished from Ephesus to the island of Patmos, Timothy remained in Ephesus to serve as bishop.  During the time of an idolatrous feast in 93 A.D., the pagans attacked Timothy and killed him.  Later, his honorable relics were interred in the Church of the Twelve Apostles in Constantinople along side of the graves of Luke the Evangelist and Andrew the First-called.

By his intercessions, O God, have mercy upon us. Amen.

Thought for the Day

"The most important work that a spiritual wrestler can do is to enter within the heart, there to fight Satan; to hate and repel the thoughts that he inspires and to wage war upon him." -- St. Macarius of Egypt
