This parish was formally established in 1920 and has been at the top of Napa Valley hill since 1983.
The parish today aptly reflects America and is comprised of more than 250 families from a broad variety of nationalities and walks of life, all witnessing to the Good News and striving to reflect the love of God to all people.
Personally experiencing the hymns, prayers, Scripture readings and ceremonies is the best way to appreciate why the Annunciation means so much to our family, and why we encourage others to come and experience our Church. There are a number of things about our worship that are different from the services of other churches, whether Roman Catholic, liturgical Protestant, or evangelical.
In an effort to help alleviate confusion, here are twelve things I wish someone had explained to me the first time I visited an Orthodox church. A Sense of Holiness If you are from a Protestant or non-liturgical tradition, you may feel overwhelmed the minute you walk in the door of an Orthodox church.
It is important to remember that none of this is an end in itself.Our Church family continually searches for dynamic ways to serve the Lord, manifest the light of Christ to the world and try to address the needs of all of God’s people.For at its core, the Annunciation in Little Rock is an Orthodox Christian family that faithfully comes together at the Eucharistic Banquet every Sunday to worship the Lord; and in this light discover the manner and means by which to better know Him and do His will.Come and discover a welcoming Church family, an ancient and dynamic Orthodox Christian Faith, and perhaps even a spiritual home where you and yours may want to plant roots and expand your relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Pastor The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church located at 1100 Napa Valley Drive in Little Rock, is a place where the light of Christ is accessible to all.At the Annunciation (the Church name commemorates the event in Scriptures in which the Archangel Gabriel was sent to announce to the Virgin Mary that she was to bear the Christ) you will find a warm and welcoming place where people of all ages and backgrounds are able to develop a dynamic relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
