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 a 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 calendar 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

In giving birth you preserved your virginity,
In falling asleep you did not forsake the world, O Theotokos.
You were translated to life, O Mother of Life,
And by your prayers, you deliver our souls from death.

Most Holy Theotokos, Save Us!

Thought for the Day

Complacency begins when we no longer see the gift of each new day, when we lose our gratitude for what we have been given. God gives us all things simply because He loves us, yet He lets us work for these things so we will appreciate them more. -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
