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.

As we have witnessed the shocking murder of nine people in the historic Emanuel AME Church in Charleston—while they were at Bible study!—this week, we note that the unthinkable has come to our own shores. We will be praying for them and all their families. We also remember our brethren in the Middle East and other parts of the world who have endured such massacres by the thousands and the destruction of hundreds of churches over the last few years. Those have been in faraway lands, but this week a very disturbed young man, possessed by the evil of drugs and racism, dared to defile the sanctity of a house of God and has shaken us all.
These events, far from scaring us—since we know that Christ has defeated even death itself for us—call us to renewed dedication to our Faith and its principles. For example, we are called to love our enemies and pray for them instead of reacting in kind. We use the Cross of Christ as our weapon—the “weapon of peace” and love for all people and all God’s creation. Please join us in prayer at church services and in your home, and let us work to show the love of God that is within us to all people that we meet, here, where we live, in Central Indiana, for this is where God has called us to bear witness to Him.
As I am a member of the board of the Indiana Center for Interfaith Cooperation, representing the Orthodox Community, please note this statement that was released with my participation in its formulation, and “Orthodox Christian” is, therefore, listed among the signatory member communities.

May the Lord keep us and all our little ones safe, and may we be strong to endure whatever challenges may come our way when we least expect them.
With love in Christ,
