"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.

Jesus raised quite a few eyebrows in his day by his openness toward all. "This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them," prim and proper religious folk grumbled about him dining with shady characters and social outcasts (Luke 15:2). Jesus' choice of dinner companions made a point: nobody is outside the bounds of God's friendship. That's good news for all of us! No matter where we're at in life, God wants our company and cares for sinner and saint alike: "He lets the sun rise for all people, whether they are good or bad. He sends rain to those who do right and to those who do wrong" (Matthew 5:45). We're all works in progress in God's eyes — and that's why there's room in his church for everyone willing to accept the invitation he extends in Jesus.
As Great Lent (March 15 through May 1 this year) begins our yearly preparation for our celebration of the risen Christ on Pascha (May 2), our bishop, Metropolitan Gregory of Nyssa, head of the American Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of North America, offers insight and inspiration in his letter for this season of repentance and renewal.
