Unserved or Underserved Community


Underserved Community or Unserved Community denotes an entry for a worshipping community which we have identified as existing and apparently organized but that, based on available information, is either:

  • pastorally served on an irregular basis (has no fixed schedule of pastoral care); or,
  • pastorally underserved (has regular pastoral care provided to it but scheduled pastoral visits are less frequent than monthly); or,    
  • pastorally unserved (does not presently have any pastoral care provided to it)

In each such instance, we have endeavored to identify a point of contact who might have further information available as to when, or if, Divine Services will be held. We encourage you to make use of such contact information before planning a visit to any of these churches.

Teachings of Christ

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. I and the Father are one.” (John 10:27-30 ESV)

Theophany

When You were baptized in the Jordan, O Lord, * worship of the Trinity was revealed, * for the Father's voice bore witness to You, calling You His “beloved Son”, * and the Spirit in the form of a dove confirmed the certainty of these words. * O Christ God, * Who appeared and enlightened the world, glory to You! (Troparion, Tone 1)

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and to the ages of ages. Amen.

You have appeared to the whole world today, * and Your light, O Lord, is signed upon us, * who with knowledge sing praise to You: * "You have come, and You have appeared, O Unapproachable Light." (Kontakion, Tone 4)

Random Proverb

Pray Without Ceasing

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

What, then, are the things which are being prepared for those who wait for Him? The Creator and Father of the ages, the All-holy One, Himself knows their greatness and beauty. Let us then strive to be found among the number of those that wait, that we may receive a share of the promised gifts.
