I'm visiting. What do I do first?
Welcome! We are so happy to see you! You will be met by a member of our Hospitality Team who will offer you a nametag and show you the way to the sanctuary, the nursery, the restrooms or the gathering area where people visit before the service. This person can answer any questions you might have.
What is a service at St. George like?
St. George is an Episcopal church, which means that it is a member of the Anglican Communion. The Anglican Communion was derived from the Church of England, and uses the traditions set forth in The Book of Common Prayer. Our worship is “liturgical,” which means that the texts and service don’t vary greatly from week to week. If you have attended an Episcopal church before, you will see that the worship seems familiar.
As you enter the sanctuary, you will notice the screens on the left and right walls where the order of service is projected for the service. You will hear readings from the Holy Bible, songs from the Episcopal Hymnal and prayers from the Prayer Book. When the congregation participates we try to have the text or lyrics on the screen for your convenience. We generally kneel or stand to pray, stand to sing hymns, listen to the Gospel and recite the creed, and sit during instructional times such as the sermon. A typical service has two main sections: the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.View the full order of services

What do we wear for worship?
While some people will be in suits or dresses, many wear outfits that are considered to be business casual. Others wear jeans and boots. During the summer months people tend to dress more informally.
How is music used in worship?
We have music at our service. Our Music Ministry serves at our services. Our Music Ministry consists of our Church Choir as well as Instrumentalists, including guitars, cellos, and more. Saint George uses the more contemporary language version (Rite 2) rather than the more traditional (Elizabethan) language (Rite 1) for the liturgy. For more information about Rite 1 and Rite 2 liturgy, see the Episcopal Church website.
The Episcopal Hymnal is used at every service. During communion and the song of praise the choir often sings pieces from other sources that relate to the season or readings of the day.
What books are used in worship?
- Book of Common Prayer
- The Holy Bible. In worship we use the National Revised Standard Version (NSRV), but any translation will do.
What are the seasons of the Episcopal calendar?
