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.

Saturday, August 1: The Procession of the Holy Cross and Beginning of the Dormition Fast
Martins 9 am, Divine Liturgy 10 am, Small Blessing of Water
The Life-giving Cross of Christ is our hope and the remedy for all disease up to and including death itself. The Cross is brought out in procession and for veneration as an ensign of victory over the filth and disease of the present age. Come to services Saturday to venerate the Cross, to partake of blessed water and to find out more. Also, as we begin the 2-week fast in preparation for the Dormition of the Theotokos, we should also increase our prayer life, both personal and corporate, and the Church, therefore, provides us some opportunities.

The Archdiocese clergy and laity could not choose better than Indianapolis for the 2019 convention. Indy, is a big city--with all the attendant conveniences--yet it still retains a small town charm. But, how about 250 restaurants in the shadow of your hotel--everything from fast food, to family restaurants, to some of America's premier steak houses? As the #1 Convention City in the US, Indy is used to hosting large groups with ease. ... See MoreSee Less
