St Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church, McKinney, Texas

St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in McKinney Texas (20 miles N of Dallas)

Here is wealth of information about Orthodoxy and Orthodox Church Life. If you are looking for spiritual things, we have Sunday and Feast day sermons, daily meditations on the Scriptures, lives of the saints, and articles about Great Lent, Pascha (Easter), Pentecost and Nativity. Our Blog "Redeeming the Time" is very active and has several posts a week about the church year, the Scriptures and service texts. In addition, you can find directions to our church, our schedule of services, videos of sermons, services and events, audio sermons, personal testimonies, and much more.

St. Nicholas is a diverse community of Orthodox Christians from all parts of the globe. Some of us are emigres from Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Bulgaria and other Orthodox nations, while others of are American converts to Orthodoxy. We have all found the "Pearl of great price" in the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Eastern Orthodox Christian Church, and we hope that this web page will give you (in English and some Russian) a taste of our beliefs, dogmas, doctrines and way of life.

The Divine Liturgy and other services are performed in English, with some Church Slavonic. We gladly welcome visitors and inquirers and always have a complimentary meal on Sunday to get acquainted.

The Church is temporarily renting a building at 3617 Abrams road, Dallas, 75214. However, during the next few months we will be building an Orthodox Temple in McKinney, TX. We hope that our new facility will serve both as a house of worship for several generations of faithful Christians, and as a spiritual and cultural center for Russian Orthodox Christians in the Dallas area.
