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.

1926 – 2016
90th Anniversary Celebration
October 7-9, 2016
First of all, let's join in prayer for the poor, displaced people in Haiti, those who have died, and those who keep ‘vigil’ in Florida on account of the approaching Hurricane Matthew. We will certainly be remembering them -- with the suffering people in Syria -- as we gather this weekend to mark our Parish 90th Anniversary.
We are looking forward to a special, double blessing, as we are honored that His Eminence, Metropolitan Joseph, and His Grace, our Bishop Anthony, will both be with us to lead us in the celebration. I hope you all realize that this is a really big deal! Please do whatever you can to arrange your schedules to participate fully this weekend. You will find the detailed schedule below.
Please note that we have also allocated special time for our youth to meet and receive our Lord’s blessing through our Bishops.
“Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” (Luke 18.15-16)
Metropolitan Joseph and Bishop Anthony will help us mark
