2013: Church Renovations

In December of 2012, Fr. John Troy Mashburn of St John Orthodox Church in Memphis, TN was asked to take over responsibility for the mission. In February of 2013, a building on Old Humboldt Road was donated for the mission to be renovated for use as an Orthodox church.

In March of 2013, the mission began to pray readers services while the building construction began. In June, with the renovations almost complete, the Divine Liturgy was held in the new building with the service of Holy Baptism and Chrismation. Readers services continued for week day services, and Fr. Don Berge came from Memphis to serve the Divine Liturgy 2-3 times each month.
