Who we are

Currently our church is at the beginning of a journey of growth. Eventually, the community is projected to reach a level where a full time priest will be able to live in the area close to his community. At that point, we would look towards constructing a church building. Until then, we are blessed we have a good starting point at our current location.

Orthodoxy is not just a religion. It is a culture that has a history of 2000 years, as the oldest and unchanged branch of Christianity.

We invite you to start exploring it by attending our Sunday Divine Liturgy and Saturday Vespers

Vespers Saturday – 5:00 PM

Orthros and Divine Liturgy (Main service) Sunday – 9:00 AM

St. Michael Orthodox Church History

St. Michael’s Antiochian Mission was started in 1994 at Ft. Rucker, Al. to meet the worship needs of the Wiregrass region since the closest Orthodox Churches were more than two hours away.

Fr. Isaiah Gillette was our first Priest. Fr. Isaiah became the Army Chaplain in 1995, and, when he was transferred to Missouri, the Mission moved to Dothan, Al.

Following the move, visiting priest Fr. Michael Keiser and Fr. Andrew Moore kept the Mission going serving the Holy Eucharist twice a month.

Fr. Andrew Moore was coming the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month from St. Stephen’s church in Hiram, Georgia, so that the Mission could have the Holy Eucharist twice a month!

St Michael started with five families attending regularly, and with five additional visitors attending.

Starting in June 2022, Our Mission is able to have regular Services every Sunday at 10:00 AM performed by Father Ernesto Obregon and Deacon Simeon Spencer. This is a milestone for our church, as we continue to grow our charitable and educational mission in the community. Orthodoxy is not just a religion. It is a culture that has a history of 2000 years, as the oldest and unchanged branch of Christianity.

We invite you to start exploring it by attending our Sunday Divine Liturgy and Saturday Vespers.
