Welcome



Looking for a Christ-Centered Church?

We’re not Jewish, but we are Orthodox We’re not Roman, but we are Catholic We’re not Protestant, but the Bible came from us We’re not Denominational, we’re Pre-Denominational

St. George Orthodox Church is a center for Christian worship, teaching and ministry in Fishers, Indiana. Founded in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1926, we are in communion with the ancient Orthodox Christian Church whose history goes all the way back to the time of Christ and His Apostles.

  You may have heard us referred to as “Greek Orthodox” or “Eastern Orthodox.” We are the original Christian Church of Jerusalem, the Holy Land, Greece, Asia, Africa and the Slavic countries. Our history in North America goes back to 1794 when Orthodox missionaries first arrived to minister to the Native Peoples of Alaska. We believe that God is not an angry and vengeful judge anxious to destroy sinners. Rather, He is the loving and eternally merciful God who created the universe and called it “good.” He made mankind in His own image and likeness for a life of joyful communion with Him. Despite our failings, sins and mistakes, He never ceases to love and freely offer His mercy, forgiveness and grace. The Word of God became man, the carpenter Jesus of Nazareth, and revealed Himself to us as the Way, the Truth and the Life. By His death on the cross, He destroyed the power of death, hell and the devil. And by His glorious Resurrection He arose victorious over every foe and power, offering to us participation in His very life. Jesus Christ founded His Church to be His body on earth as a fellowship of healing, teaching and communion. The Church is a hospital for healing the sick, the wounded and the weak.

MEMORY ETERNAL KHOURIYA LORETTA WILSON A wake (prayer vigil) will be kept from 4-8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 29, at St. George Orthodox Christian Church (10748 E. 116th Street, Fishers). The service of the Trisagion for the Departed will begin at 7:30 p.m. The funeral service will begin at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 30, at St. George Church. A mercy meal will follow immediately. Then we will take Loretta to the cemetery at All Saints Church (6004 S Fairfax Rd, Bloomington) for interment at 3:30 p.m. Instead of flowers, it is requested that memorial donations, “Eternal Flowers,” be made to St. Mary Orthodox Christian Church (102 E Broadway St., Greenwood, IN 46143). Loretta Mae (née Francis) Wilson, born June 29, 1933, in Beech Grove, Indiana, departed to eternal rest August 25, 2016, a resident of Greenwood. She attended Manual High School in Indianapolis and was a homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother. Loretta was a loving and faithful companion to her husband of over 65 years, the Very Reverend Athanasius Wilson, who survives her and who will miss her for a “little while” but is confident they will be one, together for eternity. Loretta is also survived by son Dan Wilson, daughter Deborah Fisher (Thomas Fisher), sister Kathleen Stallings, sister Shirley Caldwell, 6 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. Loretta was a faithful servant of God and partner with Fr. Athanasius in their ministry, and she will also be missed by the many who saw her as a second mother in the churches that she and Father Athanasius served. They were faithful members of St. George Orthodox Church in Indianapolis from 1976 to 1994, of All Saints in Bloomington from 1994 to 2006 and of St. Mary Church in Greenwood from 2007 to the present. “Archie” and Loretta Wilson were already long-time faithful members of St. George’s, when Archie was ordained Deacon Athanasius and served St. George’s in that capacity for many more years. Then, in 1994, we sent the Wilsons out as our missionaries. Dn. Athanasius was ordained a priest, and they moved to Bloomington to serve the mission of All Saints. They came back to us for just a few months, then, in 2008, we sent the Wilsons out again to establish a mission in Greenwood (now known as St. Mary of Egypt). Loretta is particularly remembered as one who was “full of grace and truth,” selfless in a way that did not come from this world. ... See MoreSee Less

The Festival is coming in just three weeks, and we need "all hands on deck!" Friday around 5:00PM, we will mix and scoop the Kafta. However the majority of help will be needed on Saturday morning as we form, bake and pack up the Kafta. Please be sure to join us on Saturday morning at 9:00 AM. Many hands make for easy work. We'd like to finish early and then go over and support our friends at the GreekFest. ... See MoreSee Less

Tomorrow, August 21, is our opening day of Church School for the 2016-17 school year. We are continuing our journey through the Bible. Last year we all studied Genesis-Deuteronomy; now we're picking up where we left off, with Joshua. We will have a special prayer for study right before Holy Communion. Then the children will come for Communion first, and they and their teachers will then go directly to their classes. ... See MoreSee Less
