Welcome to the St. John Chrysostom Greek Orthodox Church of Martin County website

Church Photo"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7

Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to that same worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers to those who give it support and sustenance; to those who already belong to the church, we hope they will provide you with the assurance that your sacrificial offerings are received with profound respect, and are utilized to maximum effectiveness. They will, in any case, enable you to make the informed decisions that are necessary for a meaningful relationship with your church!


 Congratulations!

CONNIE MONSMA AND  LUCAS COTRONAKIS  

For receiving  the Metropolis of Atlanta St. Michael Archangel awards this year. 

Bible Study:

Fr. Gregory will offer a Bible Study on Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm, starting Thursday, October 30, 2014. Our theme will be an examination of the Advent of Christ, looking not only at the biblical account as offered in the New Testament, but also relating this Mystical event to the prophesies of the Old Testament. Please bring your bibles with you!

Enhancing our Liturgical Life:

St. John's will offer Saturday Evening Vespers at 5:00 pm.

This beautiful worship service marks the beginning of the 'Lord's Day' with the setting of the sun, and sets our hearts on a path of prayer and preparation for the coming of the Divine Liturgy which follows after the 'Son' rises!

Ministry Update:


This year we have two classes: 8th grade and older meets on Mondays 6:00 -7:30 pm and our younger ones meet every Thursday  6:00-7:30 pm.

  • We have 6 regular students per class.
  • The Monday night class successfully completed the first chapter of their book.
  • The Thursday night class is almost done reviewing lessons 1-13 of their book and our two new students will have completed Units 1-7 by the end of October.
  • This week we are discussing OXI day and some of the students will participate in the celebration on October 26th.

However, I will not accept any new students after the end of this week due to the fact that I have several levels in each class and I will not be able to assist properly anyone if new students arrive.
