As Episcopalians, we are "old fashioned," retaining the ancient traditions and worship services of the first Christians. At the same time, Episcopalians approach God with humility. We do not pretend to know all of the answers. We engage with each other, with scripture and in prayer, and with modern knowledge to try our best to understand God's nature and will for us, and how we might respond to God's call to mission with and in our community.
At St. George’s, you’ll find a cross section of America, striving to live in harmony with God and with each other. We vary by race, sexual orientation, economic circumstance, and political perspective.
In this diversity, we strive to defy polarization and social tribalism. We’re committed to actively engaging with each other and with Christ’s teachings, living together in love. We don’t ignore our differences, but try to reach deep into our faith and scripture to respectfully and joyfully travel together in God’s kingdom.
