Traditional Orthodox Church of Kentucky

Welcome!  The Orthodox Church was founded by our Lord Jesus Christ and is the living manifestation of His presence in the history of mankind. The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is Orthodox, but not Jewish. It is Catholic, but not Roman. It isn’t non-denominational – it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost over 2000 years ago. The Church exists to worship the Holy Trinity, to preach the Gospel to our community, and to transfigure the lives of her children into the likeness of Jesus Christ.


St. Gregory Palamas Orthodox Church is a missionary work bringing Orthodox Christianity (The ancient Christian Faith) to the Bowling Green / Smiths Grove area of Southern Kentucky.  We are located approximately one hour north of Nashville, TN.

Come and see what original Christianity was like; what they believed and how they worshiped and prayed…It is still the same today.  Come and see…!(John 1:46)

Everyone is welcome to attend any of our services!
