Who We Are:


St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is a vibrant community of men and women from every background and age.  The Church family continally searches for dynamic ways to serve the Lord, manifest the light of Chirst to the world and try to address the needs of all of God's people.  St. Nicholas faithfully comes together at the Divine Liturgy every Sunday "In Person", or "Online" to worship the Lord; and in this light discover the manner and means by which to better know Him and do His will.  We welcome you in our Church family!  We have many Ministries and Educational Ministries.  For information regarding our ministries, please call our church office at (757) 422-5600. 

While Covid-19 cases increase in our Country, and while Church continues to look and feel different, let us support each other and not lose hope in the Lord.  We continue to pray for all of you and your loved ones. 

All who are watching us "online" and would like to receive communion or a blessing, make a confession, please be reminded that you are most welcome to schedule those for a private time with Fr. John.

If you are coming to the Divine Liturgy on Sunday's please make sure you email the church office ahead of time to sign up for the service at secretary@stnicksgoc.org

For all services during this pandemic, masks should be worn when coming into the Church.  Your temperature will be taken at each service when you enter the Church.  We will abide by social distancing at all our services.  We continue in this together, and God is with us. 


We will be streaming services on Youtube:

St. Nicholas GOC 4th & 5th Grade Sunday School Fundraiser

Gingerbread House Auction


Welcome to the 2020 St. Nicholas Gingerbread House Auction! This year we are doing things differently, but our objective is the same; to raise money for charity. 

Our goal for this year is $1,500.

The charity we are supporting this year is AIDNOW, which is a local non-profit faith based organization who partners with Virginia Beach Public School's Social Work Services to help homeless K-12 students through AIDNOW's Jump Start Program. In 2020, AIDNOW launched a Famies4Families (F4F) program to help families who were financially impacted by COVID. Over the years, AIDNOW has made a direct impact to lives of thousands of kids and families within our local community; we are blessed to be able to support this great organization. 

There are 26 Gingerbread houses that have been made by the children of the 4th & 5th grade Sunday School class and their families.  The kids were very excited to be directly involved in helping to raise money for a local charity and this would not have been possible without them and their families. THANK YOU!!! Louisa Cook and Ginny Passaris are their teachers and we are grateful to them for coming up with and organizing the fundraiser for this year.

So let the auction, fun, and fundraising begin!
