Questions & Answers

Here are some answers to common questions.

St. George Anglican Church is a liturgical church, which means we have a specific order that we do and say things in. There is an excellent article at The Anglican Compass that can explain the finer details of what we do, but if it's your first time, you can sit back and enjoy--don't worry about getting it all right! You will see some people do things like make the sign of the cross on themselves, while others do not. You may see somebody bow at the name of Jesus, while others do not. Our Anglican ethos for much of what we do is, "all may, some should, none must."

We understand how hard it can be for families in church! Your children are free to sit with you, or soon after the service begins there is an opportunity for Sunday School taught by one of our trained and background checked volunteers. Whether they sit with you or have some fun in Sunday School, they have an opportunity to come up front as Fr. Eric reads a "True Story From the Bible." Learn more about our Children's Ministry here.

"Dressing up" is not a requirement to worship with us. Some do wear their “Sunday best” but you’re also likely to see some in slacks and a casual shirt, or jeans. We believe the most important part about worshipping God is bringing yourself.

If you are new to the Anglican Church, we recommend sitting back and taking it in. When you are ready to worship with us, one of our ushers can assist you with one of our binders  or Book of Common Prayer which has the liturgy (what we say and do, and when we say and do it) in it. The Book of Common Prayer is where all of our services come from, and what makes us "liturgical."

It's a great question. We offer communion (or you may hear it called "the Eucharist" which comes from the greek word for "thanksgiving") to all Christians who have been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. If you have not been baptized, you are invited to come forward at communion to receive a blessing from the priest, just fold your arms like you're hugging yourself!

Wanting to know more? As Jesus said, "come and see." The first step is showing up! We would love to get you connected with the ministries that matter most to you as we get to know you better. We believe that it is best to know and be known in a real and significant way just as Jesus taught his first followers. There are ample ways to connect in our church, let's talk!
