"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
Thank you for visiting the Greek Orthodox Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos’s Web Site. Our parish welcomes people of all backgrounds. Our mission is to be faithful to Our Lord Jesus Christ, who commanded, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19.
We are a sacramental and liturgical church under the jurisdiction of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Atlanta. The Eucharist, the partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ, is the focus of Orthodox practice and worship. Holy Communion is offered at every Divine Liturgy. In addition to the holy services, the Dormition offers many other opportunities to worship and honor God. These include vespers, matins, and paraklesis services as well as participation in Christian Education programs that we offer throughout the year.
Are you new to the community? We invite you and your family to attend and hope that you will find not only a home here. For over 68 years the Dormition Parish has proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ to the City of Greensboro and surrounding areas. We look forward to your presence as we gather to pray and worship as a community of faith.

The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
