Police Appreciation - 09/30/20

On Wednesday, September 30, parish youth, accompanied by their parents, made a trip to the local State Police barracks to present the officers with cards and other artwork, showing our appreciation for their willingness to answer the call to protect and serve. The parish also purchased some food for the officers of the barracks from a local restaurant as a small token of our gratitude. Among the group from the church was our own Cpl. Dana Wyant, who serves on the police force in Rehoboth, DE. We heartily thank the officers who welcomed us to the barracks and ask humbly the Lord to bless, strengthen, guard, and preserve all our police men and women and their families!

What is the Orthodox Church?

“The Orthodox Christian Church is evangelical, but not Protestant.
It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman.
It is not denominational, it is pre-denominational.
It has believed, taught, preserved, defended, and died for the
Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost nearly 2,000 years ago.”
