We welcome one and all who wish to worship with us to come and "taste and see that the Lord is Good!" (Ps. 34:8)
Our Mission Statement:
"From this day forth, from this hour, from this minute, let us love God above all."
-St. Herman of Alaska
St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Church considers it our special calling first and foremost to bring the Light of Christ and His Church to the small corner of the world that He has gathered us. We are here to witness to the Life of the Holy Spirit in the Church, our Holy Tradition, which is not merely adhering to a set of rules, but rather, letting Christ be the rule of our life. Our special witness comes through personal spiritual renewal and service to others. We are called to reach out to the un-churched, and to welcome home those who have strayed. To one and all we say, "Come and See!"
