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.

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

St. George Festival
Falafel, Lamb Shanks and More
Two of the most popular menu items you will find at the St. George Festival on September 16-17 are lamb shanks and falafel. “Falafel is made with blended chick peas, onions, and spices and then deep-fried to perfection. It’s served inside pita bread and garnished with tahini sauce, onions, tomatoes and hummus. Falafel is like hamburger in the U.S. Every corner of every street has a vendor or restaurant selling it,” says Mr. Bannourah.“Lamb is more popular than beef and chicken in the Middle East because there are so many shepherds and sheep,” says Riyad Bannourah, who is chairman of this year’s festival. Lamb shanks are marinated with spices, lemon pepper, garlic, olive oil and baked for an hour and a half. You can eat them like a drumstick,” he says.Bannourah grew up in Beit Sahour, a town east of Bethlehem in Palestine that is 80 percent Christian and 20 percent Muslim. He came to the U.S. in 1973 to study electrical engineering at Purdue and currently works as a consulting electrical engineer at Apogee Consulting Group in Indianapolis. - David E. Sumner

Tomorrow, August 21, is our opening day of Church School for the 2016-17 school year. We are continuing our journey through the Bible.

Then the children will come for Communion first, and they and their teachers will then go directly to their classes. ... See MoreSee Less
