Please join us in celebrating the Divine Liturgy
January 21st at 10am at our new location: 341 Mulberry Ave. Havasu
Christian Church. We are happy to announce that Church Services will
be held @ Havasu Christian Church going forward, this is a great
move in the right direction as the Church has plenty of parking,
seating, a playground, as well as a rec facility that we are able to
use for after service coffee hour.
We are excited about the growth we have seen thus far and look forward to enlarging our Orthodox Church Family in Lake Havasu City - Come Join Us. Afterwards there will be a potluck lunch, please bring a favorite dish to share!! We look forward to seeing you.

The Process of Receiving Non-Orthodox Persons Into the Orthodox Church:
To become a member of the Orthodox Church means that one enjoys the same sacraments and way of life that the ancient church established. The process of joining the church varies according to each person's situation and circumstances.
Baptized Christians are generally received through the Sacrament of Chrismation In general, the Orthodox Church does not re-baptize a Christian who has received baptism in a mainline Protestant or the Roman Catholic Church. The criterion is that the Baptism was done in the name of the Trinity along with proof, i.e. a certificate or parental verification. The Orthodox Church does not accept the baptisms of Mormons. An initial consultation is done with the Priest by appointment and then, a method of preparation for the Chrismation is discussed.
