"Bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ" -Gal. 6:2

"Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God."

- Hebrews 13:6

Our Mission

Christ called His believers "to Baptize all nations." In response to this call and out of love for our neighbors, Saint Nicholas is constantly looking for opportunities to bring those around us to the fullness of the life in Christ. We do this through outreach, both here locally and abroad in the form of mission trips. Our goal is simple: to bring more people into the true faith as expressed in the historic church of Orthodox Christianity. Each of us shares in this charge. This team is made up of those who are willing to answer the call by growing personally as Christians in order to reflect Christ to others. This is a true missionary effort, one that will give our Church greater visibility and to let people know what the Orthodox faith can offer.

 

Missions & Evangelism Team

Our Missions and Outreach team is committed to proclaiming the good news of Christ to the surrounding world. Locally, we are constantly finding ways to expose our Eastern North Carolina region to the true faith in Christ. Saint Nicholas also participates in mission trips to various places in need. Mission trips spread the Gospel and may include providing assistance in construc­tion, education, or physical wellness. However, it is the spirit of fellowship and philanthropy during these trips that is most rewarding!

IOCC

IOCC, in the spirit of Christ’s love, offers emergency relief and development programs to those in need worldwide, without discrimination, and strengthens the capacity of the Orthodox Church to so respond. Our involvement with IOCC here at Saint Nicholas, allows them to be ready to respond, without discrimination, to those who are suffering and in need at a moment's notice, to enable them to continue to improve their own lives and communities and to have means to live with dignity, respect and hope.

Hospitality & Parish Care

Our Hospitality and Parish Care ministries offer a wide variety of services to our Saint Nicholas Family. Doing many of the "behind the scene" jobs, these ministries are largely responsible for the welcoming and joyful receptions that people feel when they enter our sanctuary during services, and Fellowship Hall afterwards. Beyond that, these ministries also have lasting impacts outside the four walls of our Church, bringing love and warmth to those seeking a bit of compassion at Saint Nicholas.

Welcome Team

The Welcome Team assists the Parish Council of Saint Nicholas in greeting people every Sunday as they arrive at church. They also welcome visitors, provide assistance, care for the proskinitaria (candle areas), and administer the collection of offerings. These faithful stewards perform a valuable service for our church. If you are interested in participating as a Welcome Team Member, please contact us.
