Thank you for visiting the St. George Orthodox Christian Mission website. We hope you find our site informative and edifying. We also invite you to join us for one of our liturgical services – services that have been part of the worshiping tradition of apostolic Christianity since the era of the “early Christian Church."

Our parish is part of the ancient Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch where St. Luke in the Book of Acts tells us the believers were mockingly called “Christians” for the first time (Acts 11:26). We are part of the global Eastern Orthodox Church community which includes national churches in traditionally Orthodox countries like Russia, Greece, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, and the Middle East; but also in Japan, China, India, the Philippines; throughout Europe including Germany, France, Poland, Finland, across the British Isles; throughout the African continent including Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa; and across North, Central and South America.  There are over 250 million Eastern Orthodox Christians in the world today and over 1 million in the United States. 

St. George is a young but growing faith community with congregants from diverse religious and non-religious backgrounds, as well as ages, ethnicities, and cultures. However, we have all been called out of the world to seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and have begun that process by being initiated into the Body of Christ; the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Orthodox Church. It is here where we work out our salvation in the fear of God, with faith and love, drawing near to Him, and raising our families in accordance with the commandments of the Lord Jesus Christ and the sacred, apostolic Holy Tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

We invite everyone to come and see the truth and beauty of Holy Orthodoxy! Whether you are personally seeking the historically grounded, true Church of Christ, or would simply like to learn more and appreciate the immense beauty of the Orthodox Church, all are welcome. Please take some time to view our service schedule to see opportunities for worship and a visit, or else please feel free to contact our Proistamenos (pastor/priest), Fr. Mykel (Michael), to schedule a meeting, conversation, or tour about Orthodoxy or your faith in God in general.

The blessing of the Lord and His mercy be upon you through His divine grace and love for mankind! Amen.
