We have a new Hall!


We started in 1994 in a tiny rented building in Dallas. In 2007, we bought land in McKinney, and after a period that seem like forever, finally started using our new, small, but very beautiful and acoustically excellent temple, June 2010.  We paid of the huge looking mortgage over 3 years early, and during that time, built a large covered outdoor deck, to serve as a “poor man’s room addition”, which we used to barely provide additional space for dining and church school classes, in all kinds of weather.  


In February, 2020 we completed expanding our worship area into our former hall, and buying a large two-story White House that will serve as our hall, classrooms and everything else. It has a large dining area and enough rooms so that we can have a dedicated room to each one of the grade levels in our church school, with rooms for hospitality and other purposes. We have taken on a little bit over $300,000 in debt. We are over 600 percent larger in membership since we began.


We have lots of ideas about creative ways to use the hall, such as homeschool co-op, feeding the homeless and giving them a place to come out of the cold or heat Monday-Friday, hospitality for travelers or a place to live for people who need a little relief for little while, and possibly even a place for certain former prisoners to parole to. We cannot do any of those things unless we are sure we can continue to pay the mortgage without dipping into our savings.


Will you join our ministry? We really mean that. It’s not just words. To donate to our building fund, and send us the names of your loved ones in your nuclear family, we will pray for them forever, at every liturgy. If you want we can keep you informed about things happening in our little country church in McKinney Texas. Just let us know your email address and your desire to be kept informed.

You can donate via PayPal, at: Donate to St Nicholas Orthodox Church


We are happy to accept checks which are even better because there’s no processing fee taken out. Mail to St Nicholas Orthodox Church, 708 S Chestnut, McKinney, TX 75069


Please, with your donation however you make it, send us the names of your nuclear family and who is Orthodox and who is not. Also, send us the names of your loved ones that have reposed. We will pray for them as long as the walls of our church are standing, in perpetuity.
