I have a Protestant friend who lives close to Waco, Texas. He has expressed to me an interest in taking Greek lessons at a Greek Orthodox Church. He wonders if a) such a possibility exists, and b) would he be allowed to study in this fashion at the church as a non-orthodox?

Is there anyone on this board who is familiar with this geographical area and the Greek churches and such educational possiblities?

Thank you SO much!

Fwiw, according to Orthodoxy In America, there is a Greek Orthodox parish in Waco at the following address:

St. Nicholas Church Greek Orthodox Church
617 North 17th Street  Waco, TX 76707
254.754.6519
FrTedWaco@grandecom.net

Perhaps the person could contact the priest and ask? Unfortunately the next closest parish is some distance away (77 miles).

Thanks for that information, Aster!

My apologies for not posting in the correct forum.

 Do any of the Greeks here have a greek-language programme at their parishes which is open to parishioners and other interested parties? I had never thought of this before, but it could be a good tool to reach out to the non-orthodox.

Thanks, Quinault. I think this person is mostly interested in studying NT greek, so he can read the Bible in the original text. I was thinking it would be a wonderful experience for him to spend time at an actual parish and to be able to chat with an actual priest.

I'm sure it's excellent! Thanks so much!

While many larger GO parishes do have a "Greek school" (I certainly went to one), they teach modern Greek, not Koine.
