December will be doubly busy for the people of the Nativity of the Holy Theotokos parish in Greenville, North Carolina. The church has taken up residence at a new facility, which will open on December 19. Also, the parish will continue its work of helping those in need, with distribution of free clothing. 

From the article:
Quote
Since its first services in September 2008, the mission has met at 3370 Avon Road in Greenville.  A larger Church facility on busy Highway 33 became available this year, and the mission decided to take advantage of this opportunity in order to further its growth and outreach.

I was in the area earlier this year with my sons. Talk about the middle of nowhere. I didn't realize that Eastern NC was so sparsely populated.

It is good to know that Orthodoxy has not only penetrated such areas, but is growing.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

hehe. For the non-Armenians, Kahana is a priest title. I am obviously making a cheesy play on the phrase "Big Kahuna."

I think the new church is for a different congregation.  There is more than one mission in North Carolina.

Fr. Anastasios,

I serve in both Raleigh, NC and Greenville, NC.  I live in Raleigh, and that is where my chapel is located.  Greenville has had a building from day 1, although it was a smaller property further from the city.  This opportunity presented itself this year, and we decided to move there since it was bigger and on a prominent road.  I go to Greenville 3 times a month; two Sundays and one Saturday, generally.  The other two Sundays I liturgize in my chapel in Raleigh.

Thanks for asking!
