"Come and see" was Jesus' invite for the curious back in his day (John 1:39) — and it's ours at Holy Trinity Orthodox Church today.
We're a little church with a big heart and room for all, where Jesus nourishes modern lives through ancient roots, as a parish of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of North America within the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople.
So just come and see, as Jesus said. Check us out. We're looking forward to meeting you!
Visit us 9:30 Sunday mornings at 11200 Elgin Boulevard in Spring Hill, Florida for worship and fellowship.

Fourth-century bishop Saint Gregory of Nyssa (honored January 10) wrote that our relationship with God isn't a matter of avoiding sin because we fear punishment, like slaves cringing before their masters. Nor, he wrote, is it a matter of doing good because we expect a reward, like profiteers cashing in on a business deal.
Instead, he wrote, it's a matter of being convinced that becoming God’s friend is the only thing truly worth our while, and losing his friendship is the most woeful thing of all.
How do you see your relationship with God? As a slave cowering in fear? As a profiteers out for a reward? Or as a friend seeking to return in kind the friendship God extends to you?
Come and discover God's friendship at our church this Sunday!
