Glory to Jesus Christ! Four Evangelists Orthodox Church has moved to a permanent home!
As a result of many prayers, much effort, and a successful building campaign, we have secured a parcel of property and building in order to establish a traditional Orthodox church in Harford County, Maryland. Located on North Hickory Avenue in Bel Air, our new location is within walking distance from the heart of Main Street. We invite you to be a part of this exciting time of growth for the Orthodox Church in northern Maryland. Come and join us in this unique and ancient tradition of Christian faith and worship!
The Building Project
Phase #1 of our building project consists of a series of modifications and renovations to the existing structure. They include:
- Construction of the nave with open and raised ceiling
- Two “onion dome” cupolas to adorn roof of church
- Two ADA compliant restrooms in the rear of the church
- Warming kitchen
- Expanded entrance and narthex
- ADA compliant access ramp
- Reconstructed parking pad
- Church signage from North Hickory Ave.
Future components of Phase #1 include exterior modifications in keeping with traditional Orthodox architecture.
Project Update – October 6, 2016
On October 6, 2016, after traversing a long and winding road in our construction phase, we were finally awarded our permit of use and occupancy by the Town of Bel Air, Maryland. During the preceding weeks, the altar was set up and icons were hung in the nave and narthex. While there are still finishing touches to add and slight changes to make on both the exterior and interior of the church, we will hold our first Divine Liturgy on Sunday, October 9th, 2016. Glory to Jesus Christ!
