Out of Place

I was walking down First Avenue this past Saturday, when for some reason I looked across the avenue at the other side:

Across Second Avenue.

I never noticed this building before — it looks so out of place! Also, when you try to zoom in on it in Google maps, you're taken either to the right or left, but never to this building itself.

Mysterious? You bet! So much so that I had to make a trip back, to find out what it is.

Slavic Evangelical Christian Church sign.

The Slavic Evangelical Christian Church is part of a worldwide, trans-denominational movement within Protestant Christianity, maintaining that the essence of the gospel consists in the doctrine of salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ's atonement.

No wonder they're so hidden — the East Village is nothing if not a bastion of Eastern Orthodoxy, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church established by Jesus Christ in his Great Commission to the apostles, practicing the original faith passed down from the Apostles!

East Villagers love Wikipedia.
