Come and See!
Just minutes from downtown Greenville, St John of the Ladder is a parish of the Orthodox Church of America. By the prayers and labors of the faithful, we have been blessed to have recently completed construction on a new temple and parish hall. Our community has over 200 adult members including many families with children (and children on the way!), and we are continually seeing growth. Our people are mostly converts, but we are also home to many immigrants from historically Orthodox countries, such as Russia, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine and even Guatemala. Aside from our rich liturgical cycle of worship (all in English), you will find we have an active acapella choir, Sunday church school from preschool to high school, youth and young adult groups, Saturday educational opportunities, involvement in local charities, and various other ministries to get involved with. We have found living in a community of believers a joyous spiritual discipline. Please pray for our community as we continue the work of Christ in Greenville.
Join us at St. John of the Ladder and become a part of our story!
Blessing of the Waters, Downtown Greenville
The good, taken separately from truth and beauty, is only an indistinct feeling, a powerless upwelling; truth taken abstractly is an empty word, and beauty without truth and the good is an idol.
