Welcome



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.

St. George Orthodox Christian Church

“Falafel Night” is a special event on March 23, 5:30-7:30 pm, offered by St. George as an outreach to the community. Falafel sandwiches are one of the most popular menu items during our annual festival. Falafel sandwiches, tossed salad, and a cookie will be offered for $10 for take-out or to enjoy in the church’s beautiful parish hall. All proceeds will be used for the completion of the church’s bell tower. “We want to use this evening as an opportunity to invite our neighbors who may not have visited the church for a service or during one of our festivals,” says Fr. Nabil Hanna, pastor. The falafel sandwiches are homemade by the church’s men’s group. “Falafel is made with blended chick peas, fava beans, chopped parsley, onions, and spices and then deep-fried to perfection. Four falafel are inside a whole pita bread and garnished with onions, tomatoes and a choice of tahini sauce or hummus,” says Riyad Bannourah, who is co-chairman of the event. Tours will be offered to explain the church’s unique architecture and iconography. The church was completed in 2013 and designed by San Francisco architect Christ J. Kamages, whose firm has designed more than 100 Orthodox churches, including Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Carmel. The iconography on the dome and interior walls was completed in 2013 and 2016 by Dr. George Kordis, a professor of iconography at the University of Athens, Greece, and his team. ... See MoreSee Less
