Welcome to Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in East Moline! We are an Orthodox Christian church in the Quad Cities under the auspices of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.
The Orthodox Church has her origin with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, not with a human teacher, or group, or a code of conduct or religious philosophy. The Orthodox Church strives to cultivate in the faithful a Christian way of life and depth of spirituality that is in accordance with the teachings and traditions handed down by our Lord and His disciples, and in continuity with them the saints of every generation through our present day. The Feast of Pentecost, which is celebrated fifty days after Easter, commemorates the "outpouring'' of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and marks the beginning of the mission of the Church to the world. Faith in this Church of our Lord and His Apostles is what Orthodox Christians profess during the Divine Liturgy when reciting the following line of the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed: "[I believe] in One Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church."
Our worship services are conducted primarily in English, with some Greek, and we love having new faces in the congregation. If you will be a first-time visitor, don't worry! Worship in the Orthodox Church is meant to be majestic and prayerful but not rigid or stressful. You are welcome and invited to contact our parish priest, Fr. Panayiotis Hasiakos, if you may have questions either before or after you visit. Father will be happy to answer any questions and to make your acquaintance!
