Whoever you are and wherever you are in your journey of faith there is a place for you here.

Welcome to St. George’s Episcopal Church.  We hope that you will join us for Sunday morning worship or for a time of prayer during the week which is the best way to get to know us and for us to know you.  

Our Mission Statement:  We are a welcoming, loving, and diverse community who seek to know and to follow Jesus Christ through growing spiritually inMother Amber Celebtating The Holy Eucharist: prayer, worship, study, fellowship, giving, and service to our neighbors in East County and beyond. We invite everyone to join us on this sacred journey.

Diversity:  We embrace diversity and inclusiveness in our community because the Episcopal Church affirms that every human being, without distinction, is created in the image of God, and has a full and equal claim on the love and pastoral care of the Church. Therefore we seek to welcome and love all of God’s children.

 Worship:  The foundation of St. George’s congregation is the joy we find in the worship of God. Our principal form of worship is the Holy Eucharist, in which we offer our thanks and praise for all God’s blessings, especially Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. We follow the liturgy in the Book Of Common Prayer, in which the whole congregation participates in singing,Bishop Marc on Confirmation Sunday responses, and receiving Communion.

Prayer: We seek to nurture your relationship with God by helping you develop a variety of prayer practices, both corporate and devotional.  We encourage our seekers to practice daily one or more of the following forms of prayer:  The Daily Office, a discursive form of prayer which can be said individually or corporately connecting you with the larger church community; Centering Prayer, a silent prayer or form of meditation; the Jesus Prayer, a form of prayer that can be recited throughout the day; the Rosary, a form of prayer using a string of beads, Roman or Anglican; and other kinds of prayer.   

Study: Each of us has received a measure of the gift of faith in our baptism. In order for our faith to grow, we need to nurture it through studying the Holy Scriptures, classic Christian literature, and devotional practices. Our faith longs to understand as St. Anselm said, "faith seeking understanding," with the intellect so that we might expand our conscious mind about who God is and how we are in relationship with one another and with the universe. Developing a spiritual practice of study helps us deepen our faith and also challenges our biased notions about God, ourselves, our neighbors, and our world.

Invitation: As pilgrims on the spiritual path, we invite you to be our companion on the journey as we seek to know and to follow Jesus Christ. We understand that spiritual transformation is a life-long process not a once-in-a-life-time event. Come as you are and take a step into the beloved community of the Body of Christ.

Fellowship:  At St. George’s we seek to welcome all people to worship with us, to break bread together, and to fellowship with us. Fellowship is an important part of our spiritual formation because when we find a place to belong we can begin to deepen our relationship with God and others.  Our community offers a variety of opportunities to get to know one another through worship, coffee hour, prayer and study groups, and service ministries.  Come join us for coffee or tea after the worship service and we’ll tell you all about it.
Giving:  We believe that giving is a spiritual practice and as we learn to give we grow in faith, hope, and love in appreciation of the blessings and gifts that we have received.
Service: From a deep place of worship and prayer in community we discover who we are in Christ and seek to share the love we have received by serving our neighbors locally and abroad.  At St. George’s we believe that everyone has a ministry and the capacity to serve the community using their unique spiritual gifts.  To learn how you can serve with your gifts visit Get Involved.
