Welcome to
St. Christopher Hellenic Orthodox Church
in Peachtree City, Georgia




Thank you for your visit. We invite you to join us and participate in our worship services, educational, fellowship, and service ministries.

2015_Vasilopita_C1.jpgCongratulations St. Christopher parishioners... You are commended for more than doubling last year's contributions to our Community Vasilopita Dinner benefiting St. Basil's Academy and sponsored by our Philoptochos Society... $11,000 of contributions were raised from our efforts on Saturday night, January 10, 2015.


Thanks to all who attended, including our many guests from Wellspring Ministries and friends of our parishioners. Special thanks to all who made the delicious Vasilopites that were distributed and auctioned, thanks to those who purchased them, thanks to those who brought the delicious food for dinner, and thanks to Katie Wilson and our Philoptochos Board and thanks to our Co-Chairs, Dina Tagalos Kearns, Eva Sarantis, & Pat MacDougal for overseeing this fundraising effort. We shared an unforgettable and incredible evening together and we give thanks to our Lord for His blessings upon us. May God bless our St. Basil's Academy and all those who serve there and who are part of that holy institution of our Archdiocese.

Glory to God for Our Celebration of the 11th Anniversary of our First Church Services

National Church Music Sunday
In his sermon on Sunday, October 5, 2014, Fr. George highlighted the vital ministry of our Choir Members & Chantors, and offered a special prayer blessing their efforts. He also noted that some of our choir members and chantors could not join us on that day, but as a parish family, we all appreciated the sacrifices they made for our parish worship services. Thanks to all of them!

We thank Alexandra Tagalos for her continual efforts to sew and offer our parish so many beautiful Altar linens/vestments that she has made with loving care and devotion to God and His Holy Church. After rolling spanakopites on Saturday, she helped Fr. George lay out this lovely red set. Glory and thanksgiving to God for Alexandra and all of our parishioners who have and are offering their unique and creative gifts that our Lord has provided them in support of our St. Christopher Church. We thank each of them and pray for God's blessings in their lives, today and always.
