2012© St. Nicholas of Myra Russian Orthodox Church. All Rights Reserved
We are a parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia in the Acworth, Georgia area. We are authorized to serve the Eastern-Rite and what is known as the ” Western-Rite” observances; which means that if you are visiting from a Roman Catholic, Anglican, or another Christian background, then you’ll find something that you’ll be familiar with and some things that are “different”. Likewise, Eastern Orthodox visitors will recognize the Eastern Liturgy that we also offer. The fact that we are a Russian Orthodox Church doesn’t mean that you have to be of Russian descent or speak Russian. Our worship is in English and we have people from all walks of life who come together and worship in the way that the ancient undivided Church has worshiped to this modern day.
If the name “Saint Nicholas” rings any bells, then you would be pretty near to the truth. St. Nicholas of Myra is the same one you’re probably thinking of! That’s right! Click the link below to find out why...
Some things just don’t need to be changed. The Orthodox Church has remained “unchanged” since 33 A.D. It was the Councils of the early Church that codified the Bible, that wrote the Creeds, and that has preserved the teachings of Jesus Christ without change down to the modern day.
The Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia is was established in North America and other countries to bring people from all nations to the “fullness of the Christian Faith. Today, it has maintained it’s presence and vitality as one of the foremost Orthodox Church bodies in America.
The Orthodox Church was established by Jesus Christ in 33 A.D. It has remained unchanged down to the present day. It is a timeless Faith that has survived in pure and unadulterated form. It’s worship and Liturgy have a sense of profound sacredness . A Christian of the 4th Century would be able to come into a modern Orthodox service and instantly recognize the form of the Liturgy.
This Nativity Season, we will be joining our friends at St. Mary of Egypt in Roswell for the month of December.

Claiming Poverty with Full Storehouses…
(Sunday’s Sermon on Luke 12:16-21)
A homily on Luke 12: 16-21. The parable that Christ presents describes the folly of the rich man who fills up his storehouses with things so that he can sit back and "eat, drink and be merry". However, as Christ points out, it is his soul that is required of him and he has been found wanting.
