Countdown to PASCHA

Welcome to St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church!

Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever! 

 

Welcome to St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church.

 

St. Nicholas Church is a parish of the Diocese of Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania, of the Orthodox Church in America (OCA). It is located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in the beautiful and growing Lehigh Valley. 

Led by the Rev. Father Matthew Joyner, we are a vibrant, growing community with 99 households, of which there are 123 adult members and 23 children and babies.

All are welcome to join us for any of our services! 

 

If you are looking for a new Church home, or are curious about the Orthodox Church and ancient Christianity, we encourage you to “come and see.” (John 1:46) 

 

We hope to see you soon!

The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It's Orthodox, but not Jewish. It's Catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational, it's pre-denominational. It has been believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for. The Faith of the Apostles, since the day of Pentecost 2000 years ago.
