“On July 16, 1741, a Russian Orthodox Divine Liturgy was held on the St. Peter, one of the ships in the Vitus Bering expedition, anchored offshore of Alaska, at Kayak Island. This was probably the first Orthodox Divine Liturgy in America. “

Unless the bit about St. Brendan in 512 AD was true, in which case the first Orthodox Divine Liturgy in America was around then.
